I love makes mine and my two girls toes festive around holidays. Cheesy, but fun. I hope you don't look at these and say that you could never to that. They really were very easy, but took a little time. Slow and steady wins the race!
I only painted one coat of each color. I started out with the white all over my big toe, and then make a square in the upper left side. If you get polish all over your skin, just use a q-tip to clean it up. I use a plastic plate and reuse it over and over for my designs. I dripped a couple of drips onto the plate, and then took my extra thin paint brush and made striped with the red all the way down.
I even messed up a couple of times and just took the white again and touched it up. To clean the brush you just dip it into the nail polish remover and wipe it with a tissue.
Then I took some star decals from Wal-Mart and stuck them on the blue. They actually came like below in a set of four.
For my little ones, I could only fit 3 red strips and a single star. Don't ever worry about buying expensive nail polish when it comes to the colors. The only one that needs to be of good quality is the top coat. I love the O.P.I. top coat, it seems to stay on forever.
The Fourth of July is only a little over a week away, so get your flags on!
