Nothing Says Holiday ...

... Quite like a semi-cheesy, borderline-tacky, holiday inspired manicure =D LOL Something about a holiday trips a little switch in my brain & suddenly it's perfectly fine to have various-sized star-shaped glitter on all my nails. Hot Topic Red Glitter was my base:


I had 2 small problems with the stars: the first, as expected, is that some of the corners are evil & sharp even after 2 layers of topcoat. The second is that some of the color seemed to kind of wash away when I put on that top coat ... I guess maybe that's the price I pay for using dollar store confetti on my nails in place of "real" nail decorations?... for a dollar, I still think I'm satisfied.

This is 4th of July Version 1, since I'll be doing another mani before the actual day. Not sure if that one will be as extremely holiday as this one =) Thanks for reading.
