NOTD: Veterans Day

Hello again everyone! I'm sorry it's been so long again. It's been harder than I thought it would getting back into blogging. We're still remodeling the house, and have been busy with other things. That doesn't make up for the lack of blogs. I have the best intentions and not the best follow through it seems. So, what a better way to come back than with a Veterans day NOTD?! I hope you're all excited to see what I've got on my nails for Veterans day. I would like to thank everyone who has fought for my freedom. Without you all I wouldn't even be able to have this blog. If you have any questions feel free to ask. If you try these nails out I'd love to see, share them with me on any of my social media sites. I'd love to hear from you. Like me on Facebook to see more from me. I'm also on Instagram and Pinterest, and Twitter . Check out my other blog if you'd like to see non nail related blogs.
Have a Blessed day,

Products used:
Base coat: Nail-aid, 3 minute artificials
Red Glitter Polish: Finger Paints, Romanticism Ruby
Blue Polish: L.A. Colors, Blue Lagoon
Silver Glitter: Sinful Colors, Queen of Beauty
White Polish: N.Y.C, French White Tip
Top coat: Sally Hansen, Insta-dri
Red, white, and blue acrylic paint
Red, white, and blue 2mm rhinestones
Cosmetic wedge

 I used a detail brush and blue acrylic paint to create the star base. Then I went in with the same detail brush and white acrylic paint to make outline the star. Then placed a red 2mm rhinestone in the center of the star.

I used 3 coats of a fine silver glitter to get this effect.

I used a while nail polish as a base. Then went in with red and blue acrylic paint and a detail brush to make the lines. Then filled the center of the design with a fine silver glitter.

 I started with a blue nail polish as the base then went in with red and white acrylic paint and a detail brush to get the lines. Then added red, white, and blue 2mm rhinestones

 I used a white nail polish as a base. Once that dried I took my red glitter polish and did a gradient look with a cosmetic wedge. Once that dried I went in with the blue nail polish and did a little more gradient with the same cosmetic wedge. I let the dry and then went in with my silver glitter and a detail brush and made the silver glitter stripes. You could also use a silver glitter nail striper.

Once my design had a chance to dry for a few minutes I added a coat of my favorite top coat and this look was finished!
