Make a red, white and blue manicure with cool detailing!
These Americana Nails are great because the color can be changed to fit any theme, or outfit. By using striping tape, it gets rid of the need to paint super-straignt lines, which is basically impossible!
Instead of red, white and blue, try black with neon tape for a cool effect, or even a mix of monochromatic elements will be subtly sweet!
I'm sure if you show up with this manicure at the holiday party or barbecue, everyone will be talking about it!
Let's get started.
Step 3: Repeat the process, but adding a stripe in the other diagonal direction to form an X. When you have completed the X on all your nails, paint with a topcoat and QUICKLY press a nail gem right above the cross in the X. Press down firmly to adhere the gem. It does help if you paint over the entire nail again with clear coat, to adhere the gem. However, the gem will get a bit glossy. If you don't want that paint over again with clear coat, right up the the edges of the gem but not over it.
That's about it!
