And just in case you missed that, let’s review: ONE COAT!!! Yes, that glitter polish is really all that and a bag of chips!
These Be Jeweled Wet N Wild polishes came out this past spring and are just beautiful! I featured The Crown is Mine from this same collection in this post. They don’t seem to be easy to find anymore, though so check your drugstores or eBay if you are looking for them.
“Many of us love our pretty polished fingers, me included, but what about the natural nails that lurk beneath the enamel? They just don’t get much attention unless we’re prepping them for yet another coat of a lovely lacquer of our choice. I feel it’s time to strip the polish and bare all in a show of solidarity ladies! At least long enough to snap a photo and answer a few questions, I’m not a monster after all. So please join me, show your naturally beautiful nails and share some information about them and the products you prefer to pamper them with.”

Two nail posts in a row! I hope you don’t mind, but with it being the 4th of July and all, I just couldn’t resist.
I first saw this design earlier this week on C to C Friendspirations blog and immediately knew I had to try it for myself.
I didn’t have the exact polishes used, so I just worked with what I have.
I should mention that I am not a nail-art-extraordinaire by any means, but this looked easy enough even for a rookie like me.
This is one coat of Sally Hansen Glass Slipper as a base. With Revlon Frankly Scarlet for the red stripes, Sally Hansen Through the Blue for the blue stripes, and a white Art Deco polish for the white stripes. And all of that is topped with a coat of Sally Hansen Set the Stage gold glitter.
It’s not nearly as good as the original, but I’m happy with it.
My 13 year old couldn’t believe I had done it myself! hahaha!
I hope you have a fabulous Independence Day! Stay safe and have fun!
Could there be a better name for this polish? I don’t think so! Every time I look at this color I smile. 🙂
This is my one and only color from Jessie’s Girl but it has me wanting more! I purchased this polished at Rite Aid several months ago, but had forgotten about it until recently when my girls and I were doing our nails together. Glee is a blue based teal color with blue and lime green micro shimmer glitter! LOVE!!! This is two coats Jessie’s Girl Glee and a layer of Poshe Top Coat.
It’s hard to really capture the complexity of this color in photos.
I don’t have a lot of nail art skillz, but my daughter got a little kit for her birthday recently and we decided to try it out. I choose the yellow heart nail gem to add accent to the ring finger. I kinda love it. AAAAAnd…..sometimes I see it out of the corner of my eye and think maybe there is a booger on my finger! O.o But the important thing is that my girls and I had fun together!
Each of my girls painted their own nails (what can I say, they get it from their mama!) and I helped with the nail gems. On the left is Sally Hansen Wavelength and on the right is a no-name pink mini polish that came with the nail kit and Sinful Colors Let’s Meet on the thumb. They were so proud of their finished mani’s! And I have to admit, I was pretty proud of them too! Nothing like girl bonding over polish! 🙂
