Week 24: Flag Manicure

Welcome to Week 24 of the 52 Week Challenge: Flag Manicure.  This week was supposed to coordinate nicely with Flag Day (June 14th) but I'm a bit behind in my year-long challenge.  I used this post from heart NAT as inspiration for my nails.

I used Zoya America for my middle, ring, and pinky fingers, and China Glaze First Mate for my thumb and pointer.  I've said it before but I feel I need to say it again: the formula on America is fabulous.  One coat perfection.  This was my first time using First Mate; the first coat was streaky but with the application of a second coat everything evened out and was covered nicely.  For the stars and stripes I used Bundle Monster plate BM20 and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On.  I've filed off some of my nail length in the last week, but the Bundle Monster plates are still too tiny to fit most of my nails (middle and thumb especially). Oh well.  I do really like how this ended up turning out!
