 Kathy Dent demonstrates how to do Red, White, and Bluenails.


1. Apply a base gel-polish, and cure. Apply two coats of white gel-polish, curing after each coat.


2. With red gel-polish, paint a swoosh at the base and along the side of the nail. Use a clean brush to clean up the line if necessary, and cure. Apply top coat; do not cure.


3. Set blue star-shaped rhinestones into the top coat next to the red edge, and cure.
