So...I don't usually do 4th of July nails. Typically, they turn out to be a great big mess. This year, I thought I'd give it another try and, well, I just couldn't stop - stars and glitter and flags and the Statue of Liberty and dots!
In my head, I had some kind of lean and sophisticated look going, but in fact, it's like The Party Store exploded all over my nails...and I kinda like it. :)
I used Wet n Wild Red Creme and Revlon Urban as the base colors. I went about it the easy way and polished the whole nail red, stamped my stripes with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White, painted the blue tips, and stamped the stars over that. Cheeky CH4 provided the perfect stars and wavy stripes. I used Cheeky CH51 for the star image on the thumb and Essie No Place Like Chrome for the stamping.
My favorite part of the mani is the way over the top image of the Statue of Liberty on the accent nail. This plate is Winstonia W114 and, boy, is it cute! Decorated with a little red glitter and silver dots, it's a fun added touch!
Well, thanks for stopping by, Konaddicts! If you're reading here in the US, I hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday!
