Fourth of July Manicures Or: Why I Should Just Go Play With Sparklers

My freaky fourth Frenches were a fat failure! I didn’t even bother to photo them.

I thought I’d try some flaky blue and red but, they didn’t turn out as cute as I wanted. It didn’t give off that July 4th feeling…

I didn’t even bother to clean this up, I hated it so much. Why was this polish so gloopy? I did it over Color Club matte white and well, it just mucked up. It didn’t last but 2 more seconds after this photo.

Then I tried to do some fun dots…

I think these turned out the best. However, it looks more like Wonder Bread than a Fourth of July holiday mani. Just add some yellow dots…

Then I got the not-so-good idea to whip out some stamping. Again, in theory, it would have been nice…

A couple of these are OK but I wasn’t impressed enough to keep them on. 

Luckily, the fireworks are in the night sky and no one can see my nails anyway…

Oh, one thing funny did happen yesterday. Hubs and I were in the grocery store and the store music was a John Philip Sousa band song. I began to sing along and Hubs did a double-take on me and promptly walked away. I guess I’m more patriotic than him.
