DIY Beauty: Nautical striped nails for the 4th of July

Happy Independence Day!

I put together this fun DIY for you, if you’re looking for a funky way to dress up your nails. You can make the stripes with any two (or more!) colors, but I chose to go with white (White Ballet Dahlia) and blue (Sky Waltz Delphinium) — both colors by Priti NYC, my go-to source for non-toxic nail polishes. The effect ends up being partly nautical, partly patriotic, and partly Seussical. Enjoy! (And don’t forget to check out my red, white, and discontinue sale!)

    Aww, thanks Tom! I seem to have that effect on gay boys ;) I finally watched the first episode of Boardwalk Empire today – so good!!! Thank you for recommending it to me! Now that I’m caught up on Game of Thrones and True Blood, it’s going to be my go-to in-between show <3
