Independence Day Nail Art

Hooray and Happy Birthday, United States!!! How are you going to spend the US's 235th birthday?

I'm going to show you my July 4th manicure with 10 different looks. I couldn't land on just one so I went crazy. I made some winners and losers. However, it was a lot of fun to do these.

First, let me show you the polishes I used...
Here are the 'stars'...Nubar's 'Hologram Glitter' and Kleancolor's 'Silver Star.'

Avon's 'Rich Red' (which is a blood red, not an orange-red) and Color Club's Frosty Blue that has no name. Even with the vast array of polishes that I own, I didn't have one medium blue creme polish. So, the blue here is frosty.

OPI's 'Red Shatter', Sally Hansen's 'Distressed Denim', and China Glaze's 'Lightning Bolt.'

Here, I have a Color Club white creme and one from Sally Hansen. I tried both to see which I preferred. Color Club won as it wasn't as streaky as SH. Plus, that SH is years old.

Mix them all up...

 I won't go through and tell you about each design. I'll let the photos do the talking.


And, this is my right hand...


I did use an irridescent glitter from Color Club on some of these nails. I just didn't get a photo of it separately.
 

I think my favorite one is my left-hand pinky. I feel very patriotic, seriously.

Did you do an Independence Day manicure?

Look at all those! I like them all, but I like the one with the stars the best. I'm on 4th of July mani #3. LOL This one is a splatter. :)

So fun! Will you come to Oregon and do my nails?! Please! I really like the left hand the best. The thumb and middle finger are my faves! Great festive mani!

EEP! SO cute :) I especially love the little stars

@Carrie I come up with good ideas, but I really suck at executing them. I decided no one that I care about is grading me; I'd go for it. :)

@Megan I love yours. Now I'm on the lookout for your other ones too.

@Peach You bet! I have never been to Oregon. But if you can get to Orlando, I'd paint your nails. ;D

@Vintage Those little stars are cute, but they have GAS!!! (polish stinks!!!) Thank you!!!

Woo hoo! It is like fireworks, flags and a band, all at once. I love it. :D

I haven't done my Fourth mani, yet. I will most likely do it on Sunday. :D

There is a lot going on here . But each nail individually is pretty good .

Looks a lot of fun!

Judy on July 2, 2011 at 12:21 PM said...

Holy cow how awesome! Talk about patriotic :) Love the pinkie you mentioned as well. It looks really cool! Happy Fourth!

@Ice Queen I read that you have been uber busy so far this weekend. Thanks for stopping by, sweets!

@Toyomi My nails are the only thing about me that says 'busy.' ;P

@Hadia It was fun, even if a VBS kid could do better. ;)

@Judy Happy Fourth to you too. My attempts today were terrible though.
