So for Memorial Day this year I tried to go beyond the patriotism of the holiday and also capture the militaristic aspect of it. I knew I wanted to paint blue camo, but what I wanted to do with that took some thought as well as a lot of trial and error. Eventually I settled on doing blue camo only on the tips, and placing some red rectangular rhinestones underneath that.
I actually put a lot more rhinestones on the accent nail originally and ended up hating it. Since I didn’t feel like re-doing the whole nails, I only took off the rhinestones, but that messed up the black line a bit.
I’m not thrilled with how these photographed, but I like the design a lot. Now that I have whitened my nails up, I think I’ll be on a french tips kick for the next few weeks! Should be fun! And very summery. Just like me, my nails will be wearing a lot less clothes than we were over the winter!
