Red, White and Blue

HOO-RAH alas my nail FLAGGED Nail tutorial :)
I decided to take a quirkier approach to my flags and did marbleized flag. I've seen this ALL over and have been ITCHING to try it,I had a blast but boy was this messy.
Have any of you tried this? What was your biggest peeve?

Things you need:
Nail buffer (to smooth, shine & shape your nails)
Orange stick (cuticles)
Small bowl filled w/ water
Flat surface that u can make messy i.e. show box lid
Polish remover
LOTSSS of Q-tips to clean edges

Polishes from left -> right:
Wet N' Wild Fast Dry (Saved by the Blue)
Milani Nail laquer (Ruby Jewels)
L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art (Gold Glitter)
Sally Hansen Diamond Shine Base/Top Coat (Clear)
Covergirl Boundless Color (White Night)
Maybelline Express Finish 50 sec (Clear)

Make sure your nails are smooth, and even so that the polish lays flat and wont peel.

Start by placing drops of the colors you would like, add more of a color if you'd like it to be the focus color.

Dip each finger individually until entire nail covered to your desire
(do this quickly, as the polish dries it doesnt lay flat on your nail when you lift it up and u have to flatten it yourself...BIGGER mess!)

Take a swab to the edges of your nails, and wipe the pad of your nails w/ polish remover
