    DIY Red White and Blue Nails

    Want to know how to DIY patriotic red white and blue nails at home? As long as you’re not too fussy with your stars and stripes, you do flag-inspired red white and blue nails easily! The secret is allowing ample drying time and using the right nail polish brushes for the technique.

    Our tutorial will show you how to do DIY red white and blue nails with flag accent nails.

    Here is what you will need:

    • Red nail polish
    • White nail polish
    • Blue nail polish
    • LED nail lamp (optional)
    • Fine-tip nail polish brush
    • Base coat
    • Top coat
    • Manicure stick
    • Nail buffer and nail file

    Step #1

    Start by giving yourself a mini manicure; nail polish lasts longer when you prep your nails. Use your manicure stick to push your cuticles back, and buff and file your nails.

    Step #2

    Apply a base coat to each nail. Wait for your nails to air dry, or dry under an LED nail lamp for 60 seconds if using a gel nail polish.

    Step #3

    Apply the white nail polish to one nail on each hand and red and blue nail polish to two nails on each hand. Wait for your nails to air dry, or dry under an LED nail lamp for 60 seconds if using gel nail polish. Repeat twice to get three coats of nail polish.

    Step #4

    Use a clean fine-tip nail polish brush and dip it into the white nail polish. For the stripe pattern, choose one red nail and paint three to five fine lines of white polish on each fingernail. Allow the white polish to dry. Repeat over the white lines. Wait for your nails to air dry, or dry under an LED nail lamp for 60 seconds if using a white gel nail polish.

    Step #5

    Use the fine-tip nail polish brush and dip it into the white nail polish again. For the pattern of the stars, choose one blue nail and paint three to five fine stars of white polish on each fingernail. Allow the white polish to dry. Repeat over the white stars. Wait for your nails to air dry, or dry under an LED nail lamp for 60 seconds if using a white gel nail polish.

    Step #6

    Apply a top coat to each nail. Wait for your nails to air dry, or dry under an LED nail lamp for 60 seconds if using a gel nail polish.
