I started off with a white base for all of my nails. I had English class in small groups that day and I didn't want to attract too much attention with the professor.
Anyway, I painted two nails in red and blue. On two of the white nails left I put some regular tape on the parts I wanted to keep white and painted the other parts blue, like this:
I then put striping tape on the white parts I wanted to keep white so I could make the red stripes.
After painting part of the nail in red, you can simply pull the striping tape and you have red stripes. I ended with putting some dots on the blue part, representing the stars on the American flag and this is the result:
I loved doing some nail art again. Perfect breaks in between writing a thesis (;
