Happy (Late) Fourth of July!!

Things got a little crazy this summer and a lot of my nail art didn't get posted like I had hoped it would. Now that it's fall and things have slowed down a little, I'll be able to get some of the wicked summer nail art up on the blog.

Who doesn't love all the red, white, and blue that you see throughout the summer month of July?  From flags, to decorations, to food, to nails it's red, white, and blue everywhere!!  I usually head down to the City Park for the festivities then watch fireworks at night.  This year I ended up with a terrible cold so I didn't end up doing much on the day of the fourth.  However, I was able to crank out some awesome patriotic nails prior!

This set of nails was inspired by a photo from Pinterest.  I used colors from Glitter Haven and a few from my local craft store.

I had an idea for a really cute patriotic set of nails so I decided to sketch them out on paper.  This was my design.  I used colors from Glitter Haven then added plastic stars from the craft store.  I topped the nails with a 3D heart made from glitter acrylic.

This client loves her faded nails!!  For this design I used a few of the rainbow colored acrylics from Young Nails and marbled the tips of the nails.  I then used a silver glitter to fade out the color on to the nail bed.

My client's birthday is the Fourth of July so she ALWAYS gets crazy nails in July.  I wanted to try something different so I sculpted out clear acrylic nails then pressed in netting for a snakeskin look.  I filled the designs with glitter red, silver, and blue.  There are a few iridescent stars inside too!

I LOVE this patriotic set of nails!!  I used colors from Glitter Haven and encapsulated white swirls and iridescent stars.  They were so incredible in person!!
