Twinsie Tuesday - Patriotic Mani

Morning! It's another Twinsie Tuesday. Today's theme is a patriotic mani. I had my weeks messed up and almost painted and posted the wrong mani for today. Thankfully Anna saved me from doing so when she mentioned something about her patriotic mani last night. (Thanks again Anna!) So, long story short. It's after 12:30am and I had to cheat. I went out to dinner straight from work and came home late and didn't have time to start fresh, so I went right over my existing manicure of China Glaze Sea Spray.

My base color is two coats of China Glaze Sea Spray. I got out your average sewing needle and made dots using Bettina Glamour Chic, Jordana White and China Glaze Calypso Blue. I topped everything off with a coat of China Glaze Fairy dust to represent the stars on our flag. I also had to nubbinize this past weekend :::sigh:::

I thought I was going to hate this and only planned on doing the 4 nails that I photograph, but I ended up loving it and now I'm sporting a full mani with this. My dots aren't all the same color but it's late and I'm tired, so I'm going to use that as my excuse lol.

I hope that everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July!

Don't forget to check out my Twinsies!
