4th of July Nails

Happy 4th of July!

Right now I'm missing my family in Michigan because we usually have a huge party that lasts all day/night with tons of beer, food, and fireworks. I LOVE family parties!

These are the nails I did to celebrate (I DO get to go over to my grandparent's and have a little party with them and my aunt and uncle). I used Revlon Royal for my left ring finger, China Glaze Phat Santa for my right finger and OPI You Callin' Me a Lyre? for the base on the rest. Then I layered All That Glitters Glitter Glory over the ring fingers and sponged it on in a gradient French over the others. It is very easy to apply with the brush, but I had a little trouble sponging it. I do love the result, though!

I bought Revlon Royal in a drugstore a few months ago, so I think it's readily available. Phat Santa was part of the China Glaze 2010 Christmas collection, but there are a lot of red creme/jellies like it. Glitter Glory was purchased from the All That Glitters Etsy shop, but it doesn't seem to be in stock at the moment. Hopefully it will return!


  1. A simple and lovely mani - very sweet!

  2. This is so pretty, happy 4th of July.

  3. Very pretty ... sad you are missing the big party but still cool you get to hang out with some family

  4. Love these sooo much! I need to try these even after the 4th of July is over! haha

  6. Your posts are always worth waiting for. This one is a great alternative approach to a 4th of July mani, but still totally on target.

  7. The glitters sponged on the tips look amazing :)
