Since the Fourth of July is on a Friday that means that the party starts tonight. I have painted my nails accordingly.
NYC Columbus Circle Crimson 205
Sinful Colors Tokyo Pearl 47
Urban Outfitters Blue Velvet
I love this red so much. It's not a dark red but it is a slightly cool red, if that's possible for a warm color. I think it is possible because I like how it looks on me and warmer, more orange reds usually look strange with my skin tone. The blue is super bright and therefore is a more summery color than the navy that is actually on an American flag. I decided to use this pearly white instead of a solid white because I think shiny = party.
I did two coats of red and blue for the base and then painted a stripe down the middle of my nails. This is my left hand. On my right hand, I painted three red and two blue. The pearly white goes on thin so the color showed through and I needed two coats of that, too.
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Clearly Quick 110
I almost always use Sally Hansen's Hardener as a base coat, as I've probably mentioned before on here. It is also really good as just a clear polish. I used the fast dry formula as a top coat because it is shiny and quick and I was sick of sitting around waiting for the many coats of polish to dry.
Sally Hansen Dark Huemoor 577
I decided to keep my toes a little less exciting because I don't change the color on them as often and I doubt I'll want American Pride nails after the weekend is over. I still stuck with the theme though and went with navy.
Here's the complete look. I'm feeling a little like Wonder Woman. :)
