4th of July Mani Take Two!

Alright, so this is what I ended up actually wearing today for the 4th of July. I really liked the design I posted the other day but I decided it was just a little too France-y for me haha! I ended up with a ruffian polka dotted design instead! I like it!

For the base on all my nails I used OPI Alpine Snow. The blue is Orly Royal Navy and the red is Mac Obey Me. Seche Vite shrank the blue and you can see where I unsuccessfully tried to fix that. Luckily in real life that isn't noticeable, the macro on my camera though makes it look horrible! I think I like how my accent thumb nail turned out the best!

Hope you all have/are having a fantastic 4th of July! I'm off to a block party then fireworks!

  2. It looks really cute and festive!

    I tried my hand at water marbling for the first time this weekend for my 4th of july mani, and I was pleased at how it came out.

    Here is one of the hands if you care to take a peek :)

    Thanks! I was pretty happy with it too, I think I am going to get hooked on trying out new marbling techniques since I had a lot of fun doing it :)
