For the American flag nail: I sectioned off one square to leave blank and painted two coats of Cult Nails Evil Queen so that I could have a red base before the stripes. Then, for the sectioned off part I painted two coats of OPI Dating a Royal for the blue. Once all of that was completely dry I used my dotting tool for the white dots to represent the stars. And I used my white striping tape for the stripes in the flag!
For the rest of my nails: I painted two coats of Cult Nails Evil Queen, then did one coat of Sephora by OPI Flurry Up! (silver hex glitter), and lastly, I did one coat of Icing Disco Ball (blue hex glitter).
Eugenia, from the blog Genia Be Me, did a great post on a whole bunch of people's Independence Day nails...go check it out (you'll see my nails featured in there as well!).
