Happy 4th of July!

Hello, hello, and happy 4th of July to you all! Today I have a pretty patriotic gradient mani to share with you. I struggled a bit with what to do for my nails today (so many options for fun red white and blue nails!) but decided on a gradient with Color Club Miss Bliss, a pink-red holo, Over The Moon, a sky blue holo, and Harp On It!, a silver holo. I then added some extra bling with Wet n Wild Fergie, a mix of pink, silver, blue and purple star glitters. I love the finished look, check it out!

 On my nails:
1 coat Innisfree Eco Peel-off Base coat
2 coats Color Club Harp On It!
2 (sponged) coats Color Club Miss Bliss/Harp On It!/Over The Moon
1 (dabbed) coat Wet n Wild Fergie
1 coat KB Shimmer Clearly On Top

Apologies for how messy my cuticles are -- I have a hard time cleaning up gradients still (this is only my second sponging attempt) and I didn't want to try to clean too vigorously and end up messing up the nail. Fergie was hard to work with, kind of -- certainly did not spread across the nail nicely, and I had to place each star on there individually. I didn't really pick it up expecting it to be great in that respect though -- I liked the colors. And those go perfectly with this mani, so I am happy! I like how they are more vibrant and contrast against the pastel-ish holo background. Overall I am very pleased with this attempt at patriotic nail art! :)

Have a wonderful July 4th, wherever you may be! ♥
