Happy 4th of July!!

***Nothing to Disclose***

It's Independence Day here in the United States!!  No...no, there's no Will Smith and a bunch of aliens (dammit) :P


I created 3 different manis in celebration of the 4th - I'm pretty stoked that I made myself sit down and do these.  I rarely ever make myself use polish I purchase right when I purchase it, and most of it ends up sitting, neglected in a drawer :( 

But not this time!!  Bwahaha!!

Here's the first mani:






I used Laquered Up's "Liberty Belle" over all my nails and did a glitter placement accent nail using "Star Gazer" on my ring finger.  Those took me FOREVER - but worth it, I'm so happy!!  These stars were holo, too, so they stood out a lot outdoors :D

Next mani:






I used Envy Lacquer's "Bang," "Sparkle," and "Grand Finale" for this mani, as well as vinyls from Vibrant Vinyls to make the curved lines - there's no way I could do that freehand and it would look okay :P  This trio sparkles like nobody's business, and I'll have a video of it up on my Instagram later today, so keep an eye out!

And my final (and favorite) mani:







I used Frenzy Polish's 4th of July Trio for this mani.  I did glitter placement on the pointer nail to represent the stars in the American Flag, and straight line vinyls from somewhere (it's not marked on the back so I have no idea where I got them) to make the stripes pattern on the remaining nails.  The holo in this one was incredible!!  I left this mani on the longest ^_^

I'm on my own this year with the kidlets while the hubs is out of town, so we won't be doing much by way of fun activities for the holiday.  They're a bit young yet, anyway.  What are your plans for the 4th (if you celebrate it)?

All polish purchased by me for funsies.

  2. Gorgeous! I *still* haven't done 4th of July nails this year, and I have a feeling its just not happening for me this year. I've spent the holiday weekend cleaning and organizing. Such a glamorous life, I know....

  5. That Will Smith meme is my favorite 4th of July meme. I'm kinda sad there's no aliens too, haha. All three of your manicures look spectacular. I'm really digging the Envy Lacquer one, I like the curves. :-)

  6. All of these are rad! Your dedication to glitter placement is admirable. For the 4th I just stayed home and tried to get caught up on some stuff.

  7. I am the opposite, I barely get my polish out of the box before I want to swatch it.
