  • How to paint a flag on a nail. Faded Usa Flag Nail Art Tutorial - Step 1
    Step 1

    To create this design we used Barry M's Rosehip and Huckleberry along with their white nail art pen. To top everything off we used trusty Seche Vite.

    You can recreate the look with similar coloured nail polishes and your favourite quick drying top coat.

    1. Paint two coats of your chosen base. I used Rosehip*
    2. Draw on some white stripes and a rectangle in one of the corners
    3. Use your blue shade to colour in the rectangle. I used Huckleberry*
    4. Use your white nail art pen to draw some little spots in the blue bit
    5. Top it all off with a quick drying top coat

    Step 3

    One thing we noticed after we had created the mani was that the flag looks a bit backwards! Oops! So feel free to draw either the stripes horizontally or the blue patch in the other corner.
