Happy Independence Day!

Hi everyone!!  I decided to go with a fun red, white, and blue skittle mani to celebrate the Fourth of July!!

I started off with two coats of Color Secrets Snow White, and OPI Eurso Euro on my ring fingers.  Not super exciting so far, I realize.  

For my thumb, seen at the top, I sponged on Picture Perfect Ruby Blou for a glitter gradient.  I followed with one coat of SV.

For my index finger, I applied two coats of KBShimmer Pimp My Pride.  I started to add something over it, but I loved the way it looked on it's own.  I followed with one coat of SV.

For my middle finger, I taped off my nail diagonally and added one coat of Pomegranate Nail Lacquer Fit for a Prince.  I fished out silver holographic hexes from Love & Beauty Disco Ball Silver and applied them with an orange stick to mimic the stars on the flag.  I applied one coat of SV to protect the top section, and then taped off that section.  I applied my striping tape and applied one coat of Nicole by OPI Challenge Red-y.  I followed with one more coat of SV.

For my ring finger I applied two coats of Finger Paints Twisted over Eurso Euro, and then used Kiss Silver Glitter striping polish to create the shimmering fireworks.  I striped Kiss Purple Glitter over it as well to give the fireworks a bit more depth.  I followed with one coat of SV.  
This is actually something similar to the fireworks design I did last year here and here, and since I had so much awesome feedback about the flakes and fireworks, I decided to bring it back.

On my pinky finger, I used Color Secrets Snow White, China Glaze Red Satin, and China Glaze First Mate to create a tightly striped water marble.  I added one coat of Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat, and finished with one coat of SV.

I had so much fun creating this!  I hope you enjoyed it as well!  Have a safe and happy fourth!

Happy Painting!
