4th of July Manicure - Captain America Nails

Since I'm very excited about the upcoming Captain America Movie, I thought it would be fun to do a Captain America manicure for the 4th of July, even though I'm in the UK, I enjoy any excuse to do a themed mani, and I had loads of fun with this one! So this is one for my US readers! Hope you enjoy! :)

Here is what I used:

L-R China Glaze First Mate, OPI Alpine Snow, Konad Special Polish in White, Nail Star Art Pen in red
and Konad Plate M03 

1 coat of OPI Nail Envy
2 coats of China Glaze First Mate
Star Pattern from Konad Plate M03 with Konad Special Polish in White
Filled in the stars with OPI Alpine Snow (I used the image that was just a star outline at that was the largest star)

2 Coats of OPI Alpine Snow applied freehand to tip

Red Stripes Applied with Nail Star Art Pen in red
Top Coat: Seche Vite (about 5 mins after stripes)

I'm pretty happy with how this mani turned out, the red lines are far from straight, but in real life they don't look too bad at all from a distance :)  Here's a few more photos :) Happy 4th of July to all my American Readers! Hope you have a great day!
