Quick tutorial on how to get red white and blue swirl nails from nail polish – -
So, the other day I saw this on Pinterest:
So obviously the swirl affect was not my idea – - but I WAS the genius who thought it’d be fun to go with Red White and Blue for all the patriotic summer shindigs.
I got my girls involved:
So a quick tutorial – - grab your colors and drop paint into a cup of water:
Use a toothpick to swirl the colors around:
Dip your fingers in and out – let dry – voila! But let me tell you, this is SUPER messy! How did that Pinterest picture get hers looking so neat?? I have no idea. We used remover on the under-side of fingers and around the nails, but it still wasn’t perfect.
So why am I posting about Red White and Blue in the middle of June?? to prep you, in case you, unlike me, don’t have those colors sitting in some cabinet from 10+ years ago waiting to be used…..(see, I told you this was messy – - my camera buttons look as spotted as the nail polish lids!)
This is how mine came out – it was a first attempt and I think I could do better a second time around (I think the key is in how you swirl)….
(doesn’t my hand holding the nailpolish look like some giant claw?!? – yikes!)
Go try it, and let me know if you have any helpful hints I need to share with everyone!!
