Fourth of July is Coming....

My two favorite holidays are the 4th of July and New Year's Eve. I think it has something to do with the fireworks because I've never really been all too sentimental (auld lang syne) or patriotic so these holidays hold little value to me other than fun colors/sparkles/fireworks and fun times with friends.

Since beginning my Youtube channel this is my first 4th of July with you all so I decided I needed to show you how red, white, and blue can be fun and cute all in one. My latest video shows three different designs that I have come up with--unfortunately there are only so many ways to combine these colors so sorry if it seems a bit repetitive from other videos you've seen.

Here are some pics of the latest design:

This second design is my favorite probably because it looks the least traditional.

Another Animal Print

I really must say that I have never, ever, ever been a fan of animal prints until about 3 months ago and even then it had to be something special for me really like it. I guess the tacky animal prints of the 90's (specifically those worn by women in my family) really scarred me. After the Zebra Nail Tutorial I did I was feeling good about them, at least on my nails. So when leopard was requested I was worried. Well, it only took me two months to do it but I also added a little twist to it by making it pink! Who doesn't like pink?!

I can't say that I really changed any of the design except the color scheme. But, here's what it looks like:

Fergie Inspired Domino Nails!

For my first video back from the computer fiasco I chose a very simple but prevalent design--at least on Fergie. On numerous occasions, whether it be on the Internet or in magazines I can always find a picture of Fergie with the domino nail design. I like it! It's simple, quick, easy and a bit quirky--all things that attract me to the design!

So with that inspiration I put my own twist by switching up the numbers on the dominoes. I used and iridescent white for the base color and a "Stripe Rite" nail polish in black. Let me know what you think about this look in the comments section!
