My 4th of July Nails...

Happy Independence Day, my fellow Americans! 

I know, I know. My last few posts have been nothing but red, white and blue nails... and I promise to put down the patriotic polishes and step away, lol. I've been giving you a lot of the same sort of designs recently, and I apologize for that. I've been stuck in a very comfortable groove with those colors and I'm sure you'r all getting tired of it by now. I'm sorry! New stuff coming this month, I promise, including 3 installations of my ABC Challenge. I hope you're looking forwards to that just as much as I am!

So! Onto the nails...

I was inspired by this nail art tutorial on youtube by Elleandish. She has some great nail art ideas on her channel. I highly recommend them to everyone! It's a very patriotic look, with red, white and blue, as well as silver, stars and fireworks! Everything I used is stated at the end of the post. But if you have a question, ask away! ^_^

I really like each finger but all for different reasons. I adore how the index, middle, and ring finger look together. The fireworks shows how we all celebrate the holiday; watching the night sky after a long, hot day of fun and relaxation. And the stars look like a glitter gradient, which I like a lot. And do I even need to say how much I love the silver glitter over the metallic silver base? I don't think so.

Well, that's all for today. A nice, short, and sweet post. I hope you all have a fun (and safe) holiday if you're in the US. And if you're not... I hope you have an awesome day anyways!!! Enjoy!
