I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. I’m spending the weekend at home in Charlotte. There’s just something about summer in the city that I love.
Anyhow, today we are having a cookout at my Mom’s house and we are going to see fireworks tonight so I wanted to have some appropriate nails.
The idea behind this manicure is to mix different textures to create a manicure that looks way more complicated than it is.
I used 3 different finishes in this manicure; shiny, matte and textured. For the shiny nail I used Color Club Frozen Daiquiri and for the textured blue nail I used OPI Wharf! Wharf! Wharf!. On the three white nails I used SinfulColors Snow Me White topped with a coat of Finger Paints Red, White and Hue and essie Marshmallow. To get the matte finish I used Pure Ice Frost Finish top coat. And viola, I’ve got myself an interesting, patriotic manicure.
There are more swatches under the jump.
