Super Patriotic -- red, white, and blue :)


I like doing theme nails around a holiday or an occasion -- kind of gives me more focus on what kind of manicure I want to do next, something that has actually gotten increasingly more difficult as I acquire more and more nail polishes. I've slowed down on buying the mainstream brands but the indies have captured my wallet lately, haha. So much for slowing down, always something new in the nail polish world... anyway!

And so, here is July 4th, Independence Day. I managed to do a couple of manicures that pertain to July 4th, but I'm also including the nails I did for Memorial Day, as the color scheme is the same :)

red creme: OPI Vodka & Caviar
aquamarine glitter: Lynnderella Thank Blue!
red glitter: LA Girl Glitter Addict: Animate
