Hello all! I’m going away for the 4th of July weekend (conicidentally, since of course it’s not a holiday in Japan), but I wanted to do a holiday manicure. Instead of the usual red, white and blue, I wanted to do fireworks in the evening sky. I had some fireworks decals but they looked better in the store than on my nails. Of course there are some rhinestones involved!
First, I mixed up a good summer night sky color with OPI Siberian Ink, a deep purple with purple and blue microshimmer and some metallic aqua/green eyeshadow that I never used. I brushed the eyeshadow using an eyeshadow brush into the little pool of polish I poured out and then mixed it up. I wanted it to really glow, so I then brushed in some silver pearl eyeshadow (Body Shop Shadow Cubes- those things are shiny- but not wearable unless it’s New Year’s Eve or something).

Isn’t it a pretty color? It reminds me of Japanese beetles. It reminds me of the sky lit up by fireworks, so then the next step was to add some pyrotechnic pizzazz! I used some firework decals and a few rhinestones.
Have a nice 4th of July weekend everyone!
