American Flag Nail Art Tutorial

Difficulty - Intermediate

Happy 4th of July! I might be Canadian, but this American flag nail art is so much fun to paint. The American flag is popping up everywhere in fashion at the moment...t-shirts, shoes, shorts. You may as well add nails to that list! It would look awesome with some acid washed nails!

In this tutorial I used Tip Top Nail Chic Nail Build Base Coat, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On, Tip Top Nail Chic in Astronaut, a red two way nail art with a striping brush I got from Ebay and Seche Vite top coat.

American Flag Nail Art Tutorial

Tips & Tricks

  • A long, thing striping brush will make painting those thin lines a breeze!
  • For a more glitzy look, use little rhinestones for the stars on the flag and a glitter top coat.
  • When you're painting the blue bit, just think of it as half a french manicure!
  • Don't skip the top coat. It will make your designs look smooth and finished.
  • If you make a wonky red stripe, or one is wider than all the others, just touch it up with a bit of white polish.
