Independance Day Manicure & New Blogs


a simple sponge mani for Independence Day

but first, new blogs! I have added these to my blog roll. I figured out how to fix the 'follow' issue but my photo is fuzzy and wonky & I have given up trying to fix it..

 my nail topia

lively lacquer

 polish amor

asymmetrical beauty

 the nail polish rehab candidate

 a little glitter and sparkle

 i came i saw i bought

 blinger nails

 marshee  

 red hair and black nail polish

 nothing but nail polish

 shatter me claire 

if you are a new nail blogger, please don't be shy! link your blog in my comments and I will add you to my blog roll. Also for some reason.... if you add text before a photo; your blog will not have a picture in some peoples blog rolls.....just a note = i did notice that people seem to click on posts that have a photo along with their blogs name.

these types of sheer sparkly polish`s are life savers! They disguise many flaws as well as lumpy-ness and ridges. This is a discontinued Wet n Wild Rock Solid called sparkling diamonds

stuff I used for this red white & blue sponge mani


I started with a base of Sally Hansen Chrome in diamond, then sponged on white diagonally across my nails, added Sally Hansen X-treme wear Red Carpet at the base and Sally Hansen X-treme Wear Blue It at the tips. I used 1 coat of Wet n Wild Sparkling Diamonds then finished up with a coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat.

I started with a base of silver Chrome from Sally Hansen - I like using this as a 'base'

sponged on the white diagonally and centered across my nails


added the red at the base and blue at the tips


viola! Happy fourth of July
