Happy 4th of July!!

Here's my 4th of July manicure :)..you can munch on these cookies while I show you *nom, nom, nom* :P



I didn't bake these, they are from my favorite bakery, decorated cookies ALWAYS make me smile :)

I started off with OPI "Alpine Snow" topped with Nicole by OPI "Red Texture". Hilarious when I took the two pictures above the sun was behind me in one, and in front of me for the other.  It makes my hands look like they got an instant tan..LOL :)


Then I applied regular scotch tape (the manicure was already over 8 hours dried) to my nails to make my "step design" and painted the tips with China Glaze "Eyes Like Sapphires".















Then I removed the tape after it was dry, applied my usual top coat duo and .....





























Here it is, what do you think?

I was trying to do more of a "lightening bolt" pattern, but I just couldn't  figure out the angle of the bolt, so I did, kind of a step pattern or a "sharp wave" LOL...I loved it!











































I hope everyone has a great day, and if you celebrate the 4th of July, Have a Happy and Safe 4th :)
