July 4th is literally right around the corner; between planning a fun BBQ bash, selecting the perfect RW&B outfit, and Pinteresting cute dessert ideas, we must make some time for our nails!
If you’re like me, you like to acknowledge the holidays on your fingertips- sometimes I go all out, and sometimes I opt for something a little more subtle!
A lot of people have been posting their 4th of July manicures on their blogs, Facebooks and Twitter pages lately, and of course I’ve scoured them all. While I enjoy looking at everyones creations, and wish I could post them all, I have selected the very BEST of the BEST to share with you for some inspiration.
Take a look:
My Gelish mani is going 5 days strong, and I hate to have to remove it early, but all of this inspiration has me itching to create a fun 4th manicure! Maybe I’ll see if someone will let me borrow their finger nails to design a little something 😉
I want to see your 4th of July manicures! Tweet them to me @_AmandaBella 🙂
Even though I have been on a gel-hiatus the past couple of weeks, it hasn’t stopped me from stocking up on new polishes. My preferred brand of gel nail polish, Gelish, recently came out with its Spring 2012 Candy Land Collection, and I couldn’t resist these new colors!
I visited my local Sally’s Beauty Supply store a few weeks ago, and picked up the two new pink shades…
“Sugar N’ Spice and Everything Nice”…
and “You’re So Sweet You’re Giving Me a Toothache”…
These colors are perfect for the Spring! I’ve worn both already- I can’t decide which is my favorite… “You’re So Sweet..” is basically the gel equivalent to Essie’s FIJI- one of my all time favorite colors .
“Sugar N’ Spice” is so bright and fun! I got tons of compliments on it 🙂
I can’t wait to pick up “Sugar Daddy” and “Don’t Be Such a Sourpuss” next! “Sugar Daddy” reminds me of the blue manicure I was wearing last week…
My current lilac manicure color would fit perfectly into this gel collection! If only… sigh.
Have you tried any of the colors from the Candy Land Collection yet? Which are your favorites?
