Tomorrow, we celebrate my new glitter manicure!  Oh yeah, and America’s independence…

Then again, I’ll take any excuse to drink during the day.  Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and warm! :)  I love love love this time of year, it makes my wardrobe choices so much easier knowing that I can just throw on a dress and some wedges and call it a day.  I also have fun decided on which red white and blue mani I’m going to sport for the 4th.  This year I decided on…

Color Club in Insta-this and Hard Candy in Fireworks

I did two coats of the blue and two coats of the red glitter.  The glitter isn’t the easiest to apply, I had to really pat it (instead of swipe) onto my nail to get all of the glitter to stick.  It’s an interesting polish, it has all different shapes of glitter (round, 2 different hexagonal, bar).  It’s mostly red but there’s some blue hexagons ever so often.  The bar glitter doesn’t really lay flat, it sticks out on the edges.  I had to put a thick gel top coat on top to get it to lay smooth.  It doesn’t apply evenly, but I kind of like how it differs from each nail.  It gives it some personality!

    • What a bummer! You know, I actually don’t like all of the loud booms and explosions on the 4th, I may actually prefer rain!

  2. Great 4th of July manicure! Glitter topcoat is one of the best things invented lol
