A-mani-ca, the Beautiful

Of course I have to get into the gaudy side of nails by splish splashing my love of America with an accompanying mani for the Fourth of July.

Sparkle AND shine.

To achieve this look, I followed a base coat with Orly’s Star Spangled (fitting, yes?).  After allowing the two coats of red to dry a few minutes, I applied Aruba Blue by Essie on the tips of my nails.  With a quick swipe of Silver Plated by Salon Perfect (which I purchased at the Dollar Tree and can’t find a website to link here – probably because of where I bought it…) in between the red and blue and one brush of Seche Vite top coat, my patriotic mani was complete.

Surely Uncle Sam's choice of polish this time of year.

Be careful with the backyard fireworks (I’ll be watching someone else light the wicks and run for their life as my nails are jewels, not tools. OK?).

Here’s to a safe and happy Independence Day – accompanied with fabulous mani and Skinny Pirate, of course.

    When I saw that patriotic nail pic I did the same thing I do at the ball park when they play the National Anthem…I put down my beer and stood respectfully at attention. Good thing though I was able to scroll down quickly so I could get back to my beer faster then at the game.
