Hi all, did everyone here in the US enjoy their 4th of July holiday? Mine was really relaxing. Ice cream and BBQ chicken figured prominently in my day. I was supposed to post these yesterday; this is what was on my nails for the holiday. Not very 4th of July but I loved them and couldn't bear to take them off. I'm not a huge french manicure fan - I was when I was younger but now I kind of find them boring. This idea came to me on my train ride home from work earlier this week. I figured it would be really cool looking if they came out how I pictured it. Which, fortunately, they did!
I started with two coats of China Glaze Nude. I then paint on an uneven length of Butter London Pillar Box Red on the tips of my nails. Once dry I took my small detail brush and painted on the petal detailing using American Apparel Hassid. For the leaves I used Revlon Emerald City and China Glaze Budding Romance. For top coat I used SV.
I have now been wearing this mani for 72 whole hours. That is a record for me when it comes to nail art! I really love how they turned out and have gotten so many compliments on them.
