Stars and Stripes Drip Nails!

Hi ya'll! Today I have some more nail art for you! This is what I had on my nails for Memorial Day. A little late in posting it though. (Or a lot late maybe? Not sure when this will go live.) But it's a stars and stripes, red, white, and blue drip Mani. I really loved how it turned out so much, though I wish I was a ton better at getting my "Drips" Just right. 

It was a fun weekend though, sister and family were over that Sunday, and the day before was spent going to the feed store. Valentina needed pellets, litter, and grass, so we were stocking up. It's cheaper to buy it there. They sell baby chicks there, which already bugs me cause they're in wire bottom cages which is sooo so bad for their feet, but they're so cute! They peck at your fingers cause they think they're worms. But they had baby bunnies this time, also in wire bottom cages, which is also, bad for their feet, causes sore hocks :( But they also had no hay at all, which is going to lead to them having major tooth issues later on, and they were crammed into a teeny tiny little cage where there was barely room for just one of them, nevermind the six that were crammed in there together. It makes me so sad when I see animals like that anywhere. I literally can't go anywhere near the fish at Walmart. BUT Anyways. Not the point of this post. Sooo click the jump through and I'll actually ramble about the nails instead of the poor animals.

 These were super easy to do! I started with two coats of Sally Hansen Instadri in Quick Jeanius on all nails except the ring finger. For that one I used two coats of Red-io Active. I love that blue, such a perfect denim blue! And the sparkle. So pretty! But anyways. Once that was dry, I used acrylic paint in white and made the drips on the blue nails, and also the design on the red nails. (I can't remember what that's called? I know there's a name for the type of striping here, anyone know it?) And once the drips were on and dry, I added the red stripes also with acrylic paint and also added some loose star glitter I have. I used a blue paint and painted on the star on the red nails as well. Super simple and easy to do!
