Hello! This is a fun collection of bottle spam for the 4th, so it's a little picture heavy. I planned on getting this post up earlier today so it would be more timely with the 4th of July being tomorrow, but life happens. Here are some different polish combos that would make for some fun patriotic manicures :D
Drugstore variety: Sally Hansen Xtremewear Red Carpet, In the Spotlight, Celeb Cit, and Pure Ice French Kiss. Celeb City is my favorite silver foil and French Kiss is my favorite blue creme. Ever. I used In the Spotlight as an accent in last year's patriotic mani; I love having an excuse to use over the top holographic glitter.
Zoya Sookie, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and OPI Russian Navy Matte - classic all American combo. I really like that these three have different finishes - jellyish, creme, matte.
Cult Nails Evil Queen, Zoya Luna, and Cult Nails All Tied Up - I really like the combo of these two with the glitter in the middle; it has a colored base which gives it a lot of depth
Muted Americana - China Glaze Sacred Heart, OPI Skull & Glossbones, Essie Bobbing for Baubles. I really like these together, too. Sacred Heart is from the China Glaze Ink collection and is 'neon'.
FingerPaints Primary Color, Zoya Trixie, Manglaze Royal Matterimoaning - this is probably along the lines of what I will actually use for tomorrow. I like the different finishes in this combo - crellyish, foil, super pretty suede matte.
Now here's some glittery patriotic indies + Julep; how am I supposed to choose just one?!
Nostalgic Nail Lacquer Pride, Julep America, Girly Bits Vive La Revolution! and Star Spangled
This is a franken I made that's a glitter sammie in a bottle. For whatever reason, 4th of July is my favorite time for bar glitter!
A quickie bottle comparison of Nostalgic Pride, Julep , and Girly Bits Vive La Revolution!
