Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans! I love the Fourth of July, and I usually do several manis, but I've been slacking this year! :P So, I have my only set of 4th nails for you today! Sorry I don't have more for you guys! 

I began with two coats of ellagee BOOM!, a gorgeous, sparkly, drop-your-jaw silver holographic glitter polish that was released today! Once BOOM! was dry, I used red and blue acrylic paint to splatter over it. I accomplish this by dipping a straw into the paint, then blowing as hard as I can over my nails. This takes some practice, and it gets messy, but it's a lot of fun! :) I use acrylic paint instead of polish for splattering because it's wasteful to use polish and polish is a PAIN to clean up. With the acrylic paint, you just top coat your design, then wash your hands! So, once I was done splattering, I used ellagee's Glass top coat, washed my nails, and viola! Fun, splattery, sparkly nails! 

Have a blast if you're celebrating today, and stay safe! Enjoy! :)
