July 4th (and 5th) nails. I is doin'em.

My base is a gorgeous neutral by Fingerpaints called Don't Make a Scene. My accent colors are blue: China Glaze's Elephant Walk, red: NYC's Broadway Burgundy Frost, and white: Sally Hansen's Hard to Get. I'm going to be doing an abstract dot manicure concentrating on my ring fingers because gurl iz tired, yo. My base took two coats to get smooth, plus a heavy dollop of topcoat to ensure a No Chip policy meant my waiting time got extended. (I'm paranoid, though. Sometimes my polish walks off my nails at night and forgets to come back.) My middle fingers will have tiny little cakes in homage to my day of placental exit.

I haven't yet decided if I'll add any of the gold and silver glitters I have.

So anyone dollin' up their nails for the holiday? Post pictures if you've got'em! (Mine are in the comments.)
