4th of July Stars and Stripes

Happy Independence Day folks!

Of course I had to do the requisite 4th of July nail art.  There are so many wonderful versions out there across the web and here is my addition.

And lets meet the cast.


Sally Hansen Insta Dry Rapid Red
Sally Hansen Insta Dry Whirlwind White
Revlon Top Speed Royal
LA Girl Glitter Addict Celebrate

After the base coat,  I painted each nail alternating with Whirlwind White and Royal, topped off with Seche Vite.  I added one coat of Celebrate over the Royal before stamping.  The stripes were stamped with image plate QA 3.  The stars are from BM 03 (index finger) and MASH 43 (the rest).  Topped everything off with another coat of Seche Vite.  Oh how I missed my Seche.  Picked up a new bottle on my latest trip to Sally Beauty.

So on another note...what is everyone grillin up for the holiday.  I did my grilling yesterday, in the rain, since I have to work tonight. Grilled up some ribs, made mac and cheese, baked beans, potato salad, and corn on the cob.  MMM carb heaven.

Enjoy your day!
Thanks for checkin me out.  Happy polishing!


  1. I know I'm a little late, but this is so cute! The red and white stripes would be good for the winter holidays too - reminds me of candy canes :)
