Happy Memorial day!

In honor of Memorial day, I went for a patriotic mani.  I love the look of different patterns on each nail with a common color theme.  Normally I couldn't pull this off at work, but fortunately it was a three day weekend.
I'm not feeling very chatty tonight, so I'm going to stick with photos and few words.

Here are my red, white and blue nails.

 Here is my right hand.

I hope everyone had a great day filled with sun, picnics and friends.

Does a tiger say roar?

My nails decided to stop cooperating and continued to break for the past few weeks.  They weren't photograph-worthy until this weekend.  In the meantime I've been experimenting with all my new glitters from youmix and TKB.  FYI the sample size of TKB shaplies is plenty.  I ended up ordering 1oz of some of the sizes and ended up with way too much glitter.

The manicure below has china glaze seduce me as a base, topped with two coats of my magenta glitter franken.  I stamped a franken over that, put on a coat of seche and called it a day.  Typically I'm not one for animal prints, but I thought I'd give it a go.

Glitter appreciation shot.

 It's so glittery.  The purple magic glitter looks awesome when the light hits it.
