Stars and Stripes Forever

  I may not be able to wear nail polish to work... but that doesn't stop me from painting my nails for a favorite holiday on my part day off!  I wanted to do something fairly quick and easy (since I only get to wear it for one day) but also fun and festive.

Outdoors, direct sun

    For these nails, I used two coats of either OPI An Affair in Red Square or OPI Into the Night as the base colors.  I then did stamping with Konad Special White and plates m82 (stars) and RA-106 (stripes).  A quick and festive mani!  Love how this one turned out!

Outdoors, shade
  Hope all of my American readers have a very Happy Independence Day!  And to all of the rest of you... hope you have a fabulous 4th of July.  ;)

Happy Birthday To Me....

  My 26th birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and I did this fun brightly colored water marble for the event.

Outdoors, sunlight
  I started off with a base coat of OPI Pink Friday, and then marbled with OPI Funky Donkey, OPI Fly, and Nicole by OPI All Kendall-ed Up.  I added the tips using Konad Special White and plate BM17.  Of course I had to top it off with some China Glaze Fairy Dust.  These nails were perfect for my birthday, since these are some of my very favorite colors!
