Mani Monday – Patriotic Edition with L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail

As we spend this Memorial Day remembering and honoring the men and women who died in service of our great country, I just want to share a quick USA themed #ManiMonday with you. I originally created this look during the Olympics last summer but it works so well for any USA-centric holiday or event; Memorial Day, Independence Day, etc.

Striping Tape Manicure

Affiliate Link|Press Sample

It’s a classic red, white and blue nail art look using nail striping tape I bought on Amazon and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail.

I started with two coats of L’Oréal Paris I Will! (white creme), as my base and waited for it to dry. Next, I applied four strips of striping tape to the right half of each nail. I then painted over each half with L’Oréal Paris Caught Red Handed (tomato red creme) and Jet Set To Paris (blue creme), alternating the colors on each nail.

Application tips: 1) Use a quick dry top coat or UV top coat, like Seche Ultra-V, over the white to speed the drying process. 2) Lay the first tape strip in the middle of the nail and work your way to the edge for a balanced look. 3) Remove the tape immediately after applying the polish with tweezers. 4) Wait 10-15 minutes before applying top coat to avoid blurring the lines.

Simple, easy, a bit time consuming, yet eye-catching. Would you try this look at home? Do you wear themed manicures on holidays?
