Really Late Fourth of July Nails

Hello Friends!
So I'm a slacker.  Don't judge me.  But here I am!  So I had to work on fourth of July this year :( but that doesn't mean that I couldn't do fourth of July nails! So... here they are!
 So first of all, let's ignore the little polish mistakes that I didn't clean up.  I got lazy.  Anyway, this is a lot easier than it looks.  I got several comments along the lines of "OMG how did you do that?" It's really not that hard.  So for the red I used OPI Red Hot Rio.  This is the only red I have that is not a purply red, and I think it worked out pretty well.  The blue is OPI Unfor-Greta-bly Blue.  The white is Julie G White Orchid. For the stripes, I started with the white and let it dry.  I took some small pieces of striping tape, put it on my hand to unstick it a little, and then place the pieces vertically on my ring finger nail.  Then I applied Red Hot Rio over the tape.  Next I carefully pulled the tape off.  Finally I finished all the nails off with a coat of Seche Vite top coat.
I hope y'all enjoyed this post and had a great fourth! To close here's a picture of my family on the fourth.
 Have a Marvelous Monday!
