Welcome to a holiday edition of MANICure Monday! Can you believe it’s almost July?!?! Summer is just getting geared up and my oldest daughter is going to be starting school the end of July and my baby is going to be starting Kindergarten on August 6th! Where in the world did the first half of this year go? Oh well…on with what’s important – NAILS! LOL
So I didn’t realize how vast my collection of polish was until I took a picture and posted it on Instagram and Facebook and people asked if the picture was from a nail salon…hahaha!!! I’m not as much of a shoe whore as I use to be and I remind hubby that he should support this habit since it’s much cheaper than buying shoes and designer handbags. Here’s a picture of my polish. I don’t think it’s really that bad… what do you think? And the sad thing is that I probably have about another 75-100 bottles of polish in a few bags!
The one thing that was missing from all of this nail polish was a little bit of bling. I went to Icing last week and picked up a cute package of nail gems for $4.50. With the 4th of July holiday approaching I just knew I wanted to do something with red, white & blue polish. I attempted to do the US flag but that was a big FAIL! So scratched that off the list and remembered some cute firework inspired nail art I had seen.
I used Revlon’s Top Speed nail polish in Fire and NYC polish in French Tip White & Skin Tight Denim. I used LA Colours Art Deco nail polish in white for the firework effect on my pointer finger and added a little rhinestone right in the middle. And on my middle finger I painted the base blue and then did spatter paint with the red and white.
So how did I do? And how did you design your nails this week?
