Flag Nails

Happy 4th of July! I am on call overnight tonight, which is incredibly unfortunate, because I love fireworks! Maybe if I’m lucky I can sneak off to the tall tower in the hospital and watch the fireworks from there.

Anyway, these nails are actually from LAST 4th of July, because I didn’t get them edited in time. I do, in fact, have flags on my nails right now, but you shall see them next year! Also, this means that you get to see some freehand today, rather than more stamping (which, lets be honest, will be back on Friday). Today is also the first time I’ll be wearing really visible nail art to the hospital…so we will see what happens. Hopefully everyone either ignores it or is cool with it!

The design here was inspired by badgirlnails because she does wonderful skittlettes. And also because I really never use some of my crazy holographic glitters.

Colors:
~ Red: Pure Ice – Siren
~ Blue: Sinful Colors – Endless Blue
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Silver glitter: Emily de Molly – Stockpile

Anyway, hope you enjoy the fireworks (if you are in the US), and if not then I hope it isn’t too hot out wherever you are!

Stars and Stripes Half Moon

Happy 4th of July! Have some patriotic and sparkly nail art. I also have no excuse for why I am posting this so late…I forgot it was a Monday and thus didn’t post when I woke up!

This design was inspired by chickettes although she used gel polish, which is totally cheating! Which is also to say that I’m sure mine took longer than hers to dry.

As it turns out, I have the same stamp she used, but it doesn’t work super well. Since I already knew this (I’ve tried using it before), I turned instead to one of the awesome stamps on B Loves Plate plate 03, Mind Blown. I also grabbed some tiny stars off Bundle Monster plate 307, because despite all my myriad stamping plates I have none with stars on them!

Despite the wonderful fireworks slated for tonight, I need to get to sleep early…I start on my surgery rotation tomorrow. This also means that, tragically, I just cut my nails to little tiny nubbins…and left the poor things bare. No nail polish in the surgical suite! As a reminder from here on out until September, all the posts will be scheduled rather than posted when I wake up in the morning (because I will likely forget at 4am, which is my very saddening wake-up time for surgery). The posts should continue through my return on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule, assuming I’ve timed everything right. Happy July, and I’ll see you guys in a few months!

American Flagged

Tomorrow is the 4th of July, aka independence day! Or really, fireworks day 🙂 I love fireworks! I’m trying to (somewhat) stick to the OMD3 challenges, so I went with silver today and decided to do my USA mani a day early! Also, I am at a wedding right now and the dress doesn’t quite matching red, white, and blue, so I had to get this out of the way earlier.

This mani was really easy, if a bit time consuming. I started with blue or silver nails, and added striping tape and red polish or silver dots depending on the nail. The kicked is, I ended up with 51 dots total. I wasn’t counting.

Colors
~ Silver: A England – Excalibur
~ Red: Zoya – Isla
~ Blue: Zoya – Tart

So, happy early birthday, USA, and I hope any of my readers in America get to see some fireworks tomorrow! And I hope I can sneak away from the wedding festivities to see some as well :-p

Enjoy!

USA Swirls

Since I didn’t post anything patriotic for the 4th of July, I figured it was time to show you what I actually wore for the 4th! Which is to say this mani is almost a month old, but I thought it fit well with the OMD2 theme for “national pride.”

IMG_5291

This was a very simple manicure…and given that I love making lots of swirly dots, was right up my alley! It didn’t even take long.
