I know, I’m Australian! So why am I doing July 4th nails?!
Well one reason is because I felt like it 🙂
The other reason is, and this may come as a surprise to you, but around 60% of my lovely readers here are from America, so why not do something?! So, this is for you to say thank-you for your support the last 18 months!
I had originally planned on doing some stamping with red and blue on my feature nails for this mani, but changed my mind when I visited the lovely Emily’s blog, The Lacquerologist, and seeing her awesome polka dot mani. So this mani was definitely inspired by her! I thought to myself dots are cute, and I havent done any for ages!
I applied my base coat, Pretty Serious Cosmetics Force Field Protective Base, because I have zero trust for mainstream blue’s, then applied two coats of Sally Hansen Blue It.
On my thumb I did two coats of Essie Dress To Kill.
My middle and ring fingers have Cirque Carpé Diem as the base, and I then used a dotting tool to apply the red and blue dots.
After waiting a few minutes for it to dry, I used Cirque Liquid Laminate topcoat to seal it all in.
This mani took me practically no time to do and I absolutely love it! It’s so simple anyone can do it and it would look great in a whole range of colours.
I know these are a couple of days early, but thought I might share now in case you are chasing some inspiration.
Happy Independence Day guys! Enjoy your celebrations wherever you may be!
