Purple with White Flowers

I finally got smart and used acrylic paint to do my flowers.  It's easier than doing them in nail polish because if you mess up you can wipe it off with a wet paper towel and not mess up your base.  The hardest thing about this mani is that I had to do a simple flower because it had to be something I could do with my left hand.  I always want to do elaborate designs, but I'm not steady enough with my left hand.  I'm happy with this though, and I'll keep practicing so I can get fancier!
Purple Diamond--Sinful Colors
No Means No--Pure Ice


I've been wanting to do an all stripe mani for a while, but couldn't decide on the colors.  I picked gold and silver because I don't use them very often and they are beautiful polishes. 
Luxe (gold)--Orly
Silver Mercedes--Pure Ice
Black Stripe Rite--So Easy
White Stripe Rite--So Easy

4th of July Mani

I was very happy with how this turned out.  First I painted the entire nail red.  Then I did with white stripes, the blue tips and finally, the silver glitter stripe.  If I do this one again, I'll make the white stripes thicker.
Crimson--Pure Ice
Blue It--Sally Hansen
White Stripe Rite--So Easy
Silver Glitter Stripe Rite--So Easy


These manis are so similar, I decided to put them into the same post.  Very easy!
