Obligatory 4th of July Nails

It’s that time again…time for the obligatory 4th of July nails.

Instead of the usual red, white and blue, I decided to start with a darker base. I wanted my nails to looks like fireworks in the night sky. I picked Sinful Colors “What’s Your Name”, a black polish with vibrant blue shimmer. (Alone, it reminds me of Wonder Woman’s hair in the comics.) I started with two coats over Sinful Colors Base Coat.

For the fireworks, I used a single coat of Sinful Colors “Rocket Out”. It’s filled with white, blue and bronze stars in large silver glitter. FINALLY, Sinful Colors put enough stars in a glitter! I had no problem getting 2-3 stars in each brushful of polish. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I was a bit bummed that the silver glitter made it impossible to see the blue shimmer in “What’s Your Name”. Oh well, it still looks pretty cool. I topped with “HK Girl”, but the star glitter is still really sharp. I’ve been stabbing myself with it all day. This is some dangerous stuff!

  1. […] stars in “Rocket Out” were pokey and sharp, so I had to take it off. Surprise, a bonus 4th of July […]
