Happy Fourth Of July! Here are some unique manicures I have created for us to celebrate!
This is representing freedom, love, tolerance, unity and acceptance, and the purple patch is to cover a ding, and represents the idea that we are not perfect, but we can patch it up and it will be alright! Also the term purple patch means a time of intense love and passion, or so I have heard, and I have lots of love for my country. (NOTE: this is not the same as my government, LOL)
I got the idea for a patch to fix my boo boo from one of my best nail art blogging buddies, Wendy at M.A.S.P.O.O.A.S.E. blog. Here manicure here gave me the idea for a cute patch when I dinged after two layers of the heart! And again I make lemons become lemonade! Thanks Wendy for this inspiration. By the way, her twitter handle is Wendy@catfink1664, I highly recommend you follow her!
Here is my first manicure for you today ! Happy Fourth of July!
The rainbow has pink instead of purple, I lack a purple striper. See? Plus there is some symbolism there.
Here are some of the polishes I used mid manicure.
OPI Blue Shatter, White Shatter, ($1.80 at Big Lots right now) Salon Perfect Sapphire Sparkle, Revlon Metallic, Salon Perfect Snow Flurry, Revlon Cloud ($2.00 at Big Lots packaged with Metallic ).
What a real mess! I did three manicures this day, one failicure I didn't photograph. I worked for hours! But it is fun for me, so it is not really work.
I lined them up like this while I was talking on the telephone and thought it looked like a drill sergeant in front of a class of boot camp recruits. There are two other instructors behind the line to make sure none of them make a break for it.
I loved the idea of this more than the reality, but it was an exercise.
Not perfect, but that is so me, and so much our beloved United States.
Now I do not believe anyone will accuse me of copying the manicure below. I tried eight EIGHT times to paint the middle nail in a simple white shimmer. I could not seem to manage this in about four hours yesterday. I gave up and wore this shopping. I think my manicure was telling me something this day, symbolically.
RED NAKED AND BLUE
China Glaze Cranberry Splash
Salon Perfect Sapphire Sparkle
I love the simplicity of this manicure, I picked my favorite red,white blue and a couple of untrieds and the shatters and banged it out on the fly using only brushes from the bottle!
I photoshopped this a bit, my hands are so dry right now. This is partly because of the medicines I'm on, plus I need to step up my moisturizing game.
I finished the left hand and added more to this right and will post it later today! Also. I hereby make this announcement that I am going to make an exciting announcement then too!
Happy Fourth of July everyone everywhere!
