Happy 4th of July!

  Hope everyone is having a fabulous Fourth of July - whether you are here in the US celebrating Independence Day (and hopefully a day off) or you are elsewhere simply enjoying a lovely Monday.  :)  I of course had to do something red, white and blue for the holiday!

Outdoors, full sun
  For these nails, I started out with three coats of China Glaze Ruby Pumps, a gorgeous glittery red I have shared here before.  It is a fabulous red.  On top of that, I used Bundle Monster plate BM21 with Konad special white to add stars.  I topped that off with Seche, waited for it to dry, then used tip guides to add OPI Absolutely Alice (one of my favorite all time polishes) to the tips.  I added silver rhinestones to the centers of the large stars, one for coat of Seche and was good to go!

Outdoors, shade
  I really love how this turned out!  I had a lot of different ideas for what to wear today but I am glad I chose this one.  Can't wait to show it off at the family pool party later!

  In other non-nail news... we decided to keep the puppy!  After a week long "trial separation" where she stayed with the in-laws, I was so depressed and missing her we just had to have her back.  I am so happy - I know we will find a way to make it work when we go back to clinical rotations.  Isn't she so cute and festive in her red, white, and blue bandana? :)

  Have a great day! :D
