Fourth Of July Nail Art Plus Review of Born Pretty Brushes

Hey guys! I have another post today! I'm really trying to get as much stuff done as possible this weekend so maybe you'll see multiple posts a day this weekend. Is that sad that that's all I'll be doing this weekend?? LOL Maybe, but it's what I like to do. I might go to Disneyland this Sunday so yay for that!

Anyways, of course I had to post  Fourth Of July inspired nails! I don't know why, but I usually don't participate in holiday themed nail art. I think it's because I'm too lazy to do it on time lol. But I thought this year should be different. Anyways, I saw this awesome red, white, and blue tie dye shirt that totally inspired me to do these! 

I hope you guys like it!

For the Tie Dye effect on my pointer and pinky finger I used Wet N Wild Wild Shine A Blank Canvas and Red Red, and Sinful Colors Endless Blue. And for my middle and ring finger I layered Black Cat Lacquer America F*uck Yeah! over OPI My Signature is "DC". 

I used these brushes from the Born Pretty Store (that I received for free to review) to do the tie dye effect. This is what the brushes look like:

They're pretty cheap so the brushes aren't that durable. The plastic feels really weak, like they'll break easily. But the brushes were actually pretty great. I wish they were kind of thinner, but they worked well. 

I heard some people had really bad experiences with these. So I guess it just depends on your order. I personally didn't have a bad experience with them, but I guess you don't know what you'll get. Just make sure to contact Born Pretty to get an exchange or a refund.

  1. Love that tie dye swirly design you did! Those nail art brushes sound and look very nice too.

    1. Thanks girl! Yeah they actually worked pretty nice. And they're pretty cheap

  2. the tie dye nails are really wearable! With most 4th of july manicures I think they look too OTT to wear any other time of the year. Those are great though!
