Happy Birthday, USMC!

Happy Birthday to the Marine Corp! Today, the Corp is 237 years old! Also, Sunday is Veterans Day and since my husband was a Marine, I had to do some nails dedicated to him and these two special days! The Marines were a huge part of our lives for many years and I'm so proud of his service, which included time in Iraq. He's my hero! :) 

Marines wear amazing (and really attractive) Dress Blues. Those were my inspiration for these nails. My accent nail is white to represent the cover worn with Dress Blues. I also used a decal from RLR Creations. She makes awesome decals and worked with me to make sure I got exactly what I needed. This decal shows the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor symbol associated with the Marines. My other nails represent the coat worn as part of the  Dress Blues uniform. It's a very dark navy blue coat with red trim and gold buttons. I used Zoya Sooki for the red. I then used striping tape and polished over Sooki with China Glaze Calypso Blue. Finally, I polished my top coat on and placed some yellow rhinestones next to the red stripe. 

Happy Birthday, Marine Corp! Happy Veteran's Day to all of the Vets out there! 

Ooh-rah! Enjoy! :)

  1. Great job! Hubby was AF, but the Marine's dress blues are nicer! :)

    1. Thanks! I love the Marines, but the AF is special to me too because my grandparents met when they were in the AF! :)
