I did a vintage American flag design this time last year, and I’m obsessed with the color combination. Happy Fourth of July, fellow Americans!

Daily/Weekly Nail Challenge #10: Zebra Print
I never thought we’d end up doing a common design! I haven’t done zebra print in a very long time, so it was the perfect opportunity to get some practice in. This was also my first try using The Best Glue Ever with my nail foil! This stuff is AMAZING.
Colors Used

Good thing I checked my e-mail, because I would have missed out on this! I needed some way to ease myself back into things (and I am RUSTY), and what better way than a request? A wonderful viewer named Emily needed something to go with her dress, and I created something simple but pretty and not over-the-top. I hope you enjoy it, Emily! Others my follow as well, of course.

I’m warning you from this point on until my nails are back to normal: they are nubs.

1. Start with creating a chevron french by sweeping in a diagonal from one side, then the other. This is L’Oreal’s After Hours. I swear, it’s dark blue.

2. Use a shimmery silver to outline. This is Sinful Colors’ Out of This World.

3. (OPTIONAL) I wanted to make the effect that there were petals floating in the background, so I painted over the dark blue with Sally Hansen’s Glass Slipper.

4. With a light purple (I mixed white with Sally Hansen’s Lacey Lilac), create a flower. I used a thin brush, but use what you have.

5. To make the center of the flower, I used holographic glitter pieces. You can use glitter, rhinestones, whatever you want.

Add your top coat and you’re done!

My Homage to the ladies of Hey, Nice Nails!, Donne and Gin! Their blog was another one of the first ones that I followed here, and I’m glad I didn’t do otherwise. They’re so kind! They’ve been very sweet to me, and their nail art is SICK. Sometimes they’re designs are intricate, sometimes they’re simple, and I love both aspects. They even paint nails at the Speakeasy Art Gallery in CA (although I was informed that the gallery closed).
One design that I have always loved is the ‘Herringbone’ design. It’s so simple yet so intricate at the same time. I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t tried it for myself. I love it! Thank you, Donne and Gin, for being a Nail Art Inspiration to me!

This is a tutorial for a bows and rhinestones design that’s super easy and simple to do!

1. Start by making a chevron french with whatever color you want. I’m using Sinful Colors in Unicorn.

To do a chevron french, use your nail polish brush (the standard one that came in the bottle) and sweep across the nail in a diagonal from one direction.

Then go across the nail from the opposite side and fill it in.

2. To make the top part of the bow, make an “x” shape over the yellow.

Then complete the rest of the top portion by connecting the two lines on the sides. Make your lines a little thicker if you’d like.

3. Make two white lines at the bottom of the bow and add a rhinestone (silver polish works fine, too).

Add your top coat and you’re done!
