4th of July Mani/EOTD


I'm a few days late on this... just got done uploading the pictures from my camera!

You know I'm all about the cheesy, tacky overdone holiday-themed everything, so I had to do a special Independence Day look!

Here were my nails:

The flash seems to show the little holo sparkles pretty well!

This was: One coat Nubar Night Sparkle with one coat of Art Club Red Glitter striper polish on the tips and the stars from a random drugstore no-name (possibly Blue Cross) glitter polish from Halloween, topped with a coat of just-barely shaken Orly Prisma Gloss Silver. Pictures taken immediately after applying a super thick coat of Lippmann Addicted to Speed topcoat which is why they look like they're a mile thick. And also why it peeled off the next day!

And my look wouldn't have been complete without a holiday-themed eye of the day:



This was: Ben Nye Ice topped with MAC Gesso (didn't think the white was going to turn out as frosty as it did so I tried to cover it), Aromaleigh Tainted Love and Ben Nye Cosmic Blue with MAC Blacktrack as liner (Urban Decay Zero for tightlining though) and Cover Girl Lash Blast. Urban Decay Primer Potion was the base.

I'm really in love with Aromaleigh Tainted Love. It's a shame I can't get it anymore now :(
