Tutorial: Faded Glitter Flag

I am pretty pathetic when it comes to following through on creating tutorials. This is one was requested a year ago, after this 4th of July manicure. I actually made the tutorial a few months later, but it seemed out of place to post it with the holiday so far behind. Now with 4th of July just a couple of days away, it is the perfect opportunity to share this with you...

  • White base polished (Wet 'n Wild French White Cream used here)
  • Red glitter (OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It)
  • Blue glitter (OPI Gone Gonzo!)
  • White nail art polish or striping brush to use with any white polish

  1. Apply desired number of coats of white polish
  2. As shown above, cover approximately two thirds of the nail at a diagonal with red glitter
  3. Apply the blue glitter to the remainder of the nail, toward the base
  4. Using a striping brush and white polish paint a stripe where the two glitters meet
  5. Paint additional lines over the red glitter, parallel to the first line
  6. Add a top coat and you are done!
That's all there is to it! Hopefully you can see how easy it can be and will give this a try yourself!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Beautiful. I may try this for Thursday as I definitely haven't had any inspiration for the 4th. Thank you!

  2. That looks great! And much easier than what I did this morning.

  3. This is definitely one of my favorite 4th of July looks! (as I've been seeing them everywhere) I loveee the way the color is sparkly and faded, it kind of looks like denim to me. Gorgeously done. I also did a 4th of July nail art tutorial on my blog, but your look puts mine to shame! :( haha


  4. Thank you very much! I'm happy that you find this pretty or something you'd like to try! I'd love to see it if you do try it :)

  5. I really want to try this now! good job :)


  6. I hope you give it a try! Please let me know if you do :)


I love getting comments and reading what you have to say! So don't be shy... comment! :D
