Happy 4th of July!

I'm back!! I have so many exciting honeymoon pictures to post... but today is all about the FREEDOM and the U.S. of A!!

To be quite honest, I haven't painted my nails in over a month! EEK!! I'm slacking so badly right now. It's almost time to cancel Christmas it's so bad. Anyway... I'm sick of being a "No Naked Nails" hypocrite... so here are my festive polishings for the week.

I began by painting my nails with CND Stickey base coat, followed by OPI Color So Hot It Berns on all fingers but the accent. I painted Essie Mezmerize on the accent nail.

I chose to do these colors as the base, because the glittery colors I picked to go on top tend to be a bit too dark when they're applied alone... so I wanted to brighten them up a bit. Over top of the OPI, I painted China Glaze Ruby Pumps. On top of Essie I applied China Glaze Dorothy Who? Then I added a couple star decals to the accent nails and painted some white stripes onto my thumbs with white acrylic craft paint. I finished with a coat of CND Super Shiney top coat and OPI RapiDry top coat.


It's rather simple, but it definitely gets the message across. AMERICA, WE LOVE YOU :)
