Independence Day Mani!!! (MAJOR PIC SPAMMAGE)

AHHHH I had planned to post this tomorrow, but was just too excited seeing other mani's that I had to share.  So, I hope everyone is having a happy, safe, fun weekend.  I also hope everyone is staying cool.

I did a mani and pedi to share.  So, I'll start with the mani.  I was going to wait for some incoming mail and figured it wouldn't get here in time.  It arrived RIGHT after I finished my left hand.  Rather than removing everything, I just went ahead & did my right hand too.

I started out with 2 coats of NYC White french tip polish on my thumb, though it's not pictured...........and ONE coat of Zoya America.  Yes, you read that right.  This is ONE coat!!!

This is truest to color.
Then I took my B39 plate, which I didn't get a pic of, and used the middle image to stamp using Essence My Boyfriend's Jeans. I taped around the edges, and just did this 3 different times, not really caring how it looked.
I think it looks cute  was not even being OCD about it being perfect.

Then I took my white striper and drew stripes on the remaining fingers.  I tried to get 6 white, so I could have the 13 stripes(red & white), but found it difficult.



I think it's absolutely adorable & do not want to take it off.  I think this might actually make it until Monday!

Now, for the pedi.  I had an idea, followed through with it, and it turned out looking like a flag from another country(or two).  I honestly don't care though because it's cute & I'm not changing it.  I just hate that I messed up my big right toe and don't feel like fixing it.


Zoya America, China Glaze Ruby Pumps, NYC French White Tip, Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat, Zoya Tart, and China Glaze Dorothy Who?



You can see below how this was done.  I did the solid with glitter on top.  I did not use tape for this.  For my big toes, I just put the white down all over then one coat of the red & blue on each side.


I actually managed to recreate this mani on my right hand as well with no issues!  I've been tempted to put some glitter on my fingers, but I don't want to take the cute factor too far. 

TOODLES Y'ALL!!!
