4th of July nail tutorial

Happy 4th of July! today my sister and i wanted to do some nails for the occasion so this is what we came up with!

finished product:

what you will need:
a blue (i used French Kiss by Pure Ice)
a red (i used Red Carpet by Sally Hansen)
a white (i used Timeless White by Sally Hansen)
a thin tip white (i used French White Tip by Sally Hansen
stars (i used Starstruck by Claire's Cosmetics)
a clear coat

begin by applying a clear coat.

apply white on whole nail

apply red on the top part of nail. i did two layers of this.

apply blue diagonally on the outer side of nail. 

place star or draw your own star on blue part.
to put the stars on we used a toothpick.

out line red and blue with thin white tip. i did this to clean up the edges.
if you don't have a thin tip try using a toothpick!

apply top coat.

tip: our white nail polish was goopy. after we finished painting nails i researched and found if you put a drop (or two) of acetone in your nail polish and stir it up it should clear it out, but DON'T shake your nail polish. i don't know why, but that's just what i have heard.
