Today's theme is the 4th of July. I only know of the typical 4th of July images ie fireworks and the American Flag. I opted for the flag as it seemed more flexible. I tried to keep it as abstract as possible (you'd get a fair few weird glances over here if you went around sporting the American flag on yer nails) I think it came out ok!
Ok so I started off painting half of each nail with Nail the bytch lick or ish bytch. It's my favourite red. It is so bright and the formula is perfect. I painted the other half with Lac Attack Holy Chick! When both sides were dry I grabbed my Born pretty m65 stamping plate and stamped on the diagonal lines with Barry M denim. I love this blue. It is a true denim looking polish and it has such pretty sparkles mixed in.Fianlly I added on the stars using an unnamed Born Pretty plate which has a little star on it. This step took a while! I had to add on each individual star. It nearly killed me, no joke. I used Essence Black is Back on my middle finger and Nails inc old Park lane on my index, ring and pinky. I topped it off with a coat of Essence Gel look topcoat.
I'm happy out with the end result :) Don't forget to check out the rest of the posts down below.
