4th of July Mani

Hi everyone! I'm back!  Well, sort of.

I've been sick all week with a cold and upper respiratory problems. I'm feeling better today, but still not full of energy.  All week, I've been thinking about doing some nails for 4th of July.

I bought these stickers at Sally's.

I wanted to incorporate some of the stickers into the design.

I also decided to use up the remaining nails in this box.
These huge thumb nails are what's left from that box.

I did manage to get 6 nails from the Deceptions box, and added 4 Nailene blank nails.

L-R:Piggy Polish Sleigh It Ain't So, Sally Hansen Purple Cloud, NYC Skin Tight Denim Creme, Confetti Party Palace Blue, LA Colors (no name) white glitter, Milani Art of Gold
I taped the french tip nails with Nailene French Tip Guides, to the top of the painting platform, and painted the full cover nails and french tips randomly.
2 coats each color

1 coat: Party Palace Blue over the blue nails, white glitter over the others.
 I applied the stickers to the full cover/polished nails, and added a gold line under the french tip nails. And a few rhinestones to two of the stickered nails.

I'm not really thrilled with these stickers. When I polished them with a clear coating the stickers bled.
It's not surprising to me now that they were on clearance for $2.50. I had to cover the blurry eagle with another sticker and touch up the flag with some white.

What do you think of my 4th of July mani? Have you tried stickers from Cina Nail Art?

What are you doing for Independence Day? Got a special mani planned? 

Hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Cute! Are you going to wear these for 4th of July? That sounds like a dumb question, hahaha, I'm sorry the stickers bled, but at least they weren't expensive!

Hi Olivia! Yeah, I'll probably wear them this coming week. Hope you're weekend's going well. Thanks for stopping by!
