Before I say something about my nail art, here's a quick information about the Fourth of July:
Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts,baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the national day of the United States. (Source: Wikipedia)This nail art is for the Fourth of July. No, I'm not an American, neither do I have American blood in me. I'm 100% Filipino and I just thought it would be cool to do a nail art of this. I've been seeing pictures on instagram about this day so I just decided to make a nail art of it.
I chose to paint this on false nails because I wanted my nails to have a rest from all the polishes I put. Hooray for clean nails! :)
This is what I came up with. The idea of the nail art is to put blue, red and white stripes, and stars (or dots if you're too lazy to draw stars, like me).
As you can see, I did draw the stars at first then I started to just put silver dots. It still looks cute, though.
These are the polishes that I used. I love LA colors. I bought the polishes at a low price and I seriously love their colors.
I'm not really a fan of Caronia. The white is not that opaque and I don't like the texture of the polish. But it will do, since I don't use white too much. I'm not really sure if there is something wrong with the polish or it's just me, but after a few uses of Caronia polishes, the polish becomes too gooey. I'll try to use more of this polish to figure that out. It could be that I'm doing something wrong.
What I don't like about Bobbie polishes is their brush. It's too thick and I find it hard to control the brush because of that. I have small nails and I prefer polishes with thin brushes. However, that doesn't mean I will no longer buy Bobbie polishes. They have many colors to offer at a very low price. The brush is just a small downside that I'm willing to ignore. :)
That's it for this post and for my Fourth of July nail art. I hope you liked it! :)
