4th of july nails

i'm not exactly what you would call a patriot (i've spent most of my life in japan), but i felt like doing a red, white, and blue manicure this year. or maybe i just wanted another excuse to bust out the old stamping :P.

 base color: wet 'n wild wild shine french white creme
red dots: wet 'n wild wild shine red red 
navy stamping: maybelline color show metallics navy narcissist
image plate: cheeky xl b (3rd image, 2nd row)

again, not perfect, but i'm pretty happy with it. i stamped the navy part, then filled in some red dots with dotting tools. my sister said it looked very bandana, paisley-esque, which i guess couldn't be more american, right? :P.

oops, sorry about the old, crappy bottles!

today was a good day. i had some friends over and we watched a couple star wars episodes with rifftrax (love that stuff!). but the best part was the food- we at some delicious broccoli cheddar soup, sandwiches, chip dip that looked like the american flag, and of course, macarons!

they were red (and blue) velvet with cream cheese frosting :). and now they're all gone because they were too good lol. i hope you had a good day off (if you're american) and that you have something pretty on your nails! 


  1. oh wow this one looks amazing, you are a genius with stamping!

    1. Ha, I wish I were! Thank you, though :).

  2. It looks like little fireworks to me! Perfect fourth of July nails. The macaroons look delish.

    1. Thanks so much! They were lol, but now they're all gone :P.
