I am an extremely patriotic girl...always have been. I love my country! I wanted to do a patriotic mani in honor of this very important holiday, so I employed Pure Ice Hit the Floor, Milani High Speed White on the Spot, and China Glaze Frostbite for the task.

Pure Ice Hit the Floor is a deep, glittery red that looks great as my anchor color. After all, America and sparkles are two of my very favorite things! :)

Milani White on the Spot is a thick one-coater and a bit Liquid Paper-ish, but (1) its almost cartoonish result sort of goes along with the fun aspect, and (2) I don't own OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. :) China Glaze Frostbite is the absolutely perfect All-American blue.

I used a couple of Broadway Nail appliques for the stars and topped the whole thing off with CND Air Dry. I really love how this turned out! Makes me want to sing all the U.S. Armed Forces themes that I learned back in school. Those are some great theme songs! My personal favorite is "Anchors Aweigh" (U.S. Navy). :)
|God bless America!|
So how are you spending this Memorial Day weekend? It's fun to be off work and with your family cooking hot dogs and eating ice cream, but take time on Monday to remember why we celebrate this day: to honor our fallen service men and women who have fought for our freedom and made the ultimate sacrifice.
I hope you have a lovely evening and a very safe and happy Memorial Day! :)
