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!
The Sally Hansen nail pens are great for when you need a quick coat of polish that dries almost immediately. They live fast and die quick, though so you’ll be lucky if they last a whole day without chips. (This one didn’t.)
Pink Diamond is super saturated mix of pink micro glitter and larger pink glitter bits.
The combination of these two is a bit brighter in person. It’s so girly and sparkly and (to me) so JEM!
My husband and I both come from military families. We know military life can be a hard life. We have watched our family members serve and sacrifice for those they love most. Today we honor them and those they served alongside.
While I do not think that something as basic as nail polish could ever compare to our military, it is still a fun way to add creativity to the day.
This is Essie Really Red, topped with Sally Hansen Distressed Denim (05) Crackle, and a layer of Sally Hansen Glass Slipper (150). A little red and blue with white sparkle. Still needs a bit of cleanup…..and the picture doesn’t really do it justice. But I like it.
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! 🙂
