Today's the day we in the United States celebrate the birth of our nation by setting off fireworks and eating too much at barbeques and picnics. The community I live in got a head start; we had our big fireworks show last night, in part because it costs less to hire it to be done on a day other than the 4th. It was a beautiful evening; warm enough to not have to wear jackets and dry enough to sit on the grass without getting damp. My mani for the occasion was, of course, red (Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine Luminous) and white (Sally Hansen Salon White Now) and blue (OPI Blue My Mind).
I love the Lacquer Shine formula; it's too bad Sally decided to discontinue the line. It goes on so smoothly and the color just glows. I used three coats but could have stopped at two. I needed all three coats of the OPI. The white, being white, required four coats, and the shimmer I see in the bottle disappears on the nail.
Here's my camera shy left hand; the color sequence I used there was not the same as on my right hand (which obviously needs more practice taking photos):
Happy 4th to those of you celebrating today!
