USA Olympic Gold Nails

Anyone else into the Olympics? My fave are bobsled, speed skating, and figure skating but I have been trying to watch as many competitions as possible. I am sad these games are coming to an end. In honor of the Olympics here is a nail tutorial on gold nails for all you USA fans…

Paint each nail with 2 coats of the gold polish except for your ring pinky which will be the accent nail. Paint half of the ring pinky with red polish and let dry.

Paint the other half with blue polish and let dry. Honestly I wasn’t very happy with Butler Please but that’s the closest match I have to a “true” blue color.

Using the white polish, carefully paint a line down the middle. Paint two more white stripes on the red side.
Place a drop of the white polish on scratch paper (I used a business card).

Dip the bobby pin in the polish to create white “stars” on the blue side. Finish up with a top coat.
