Twinsie Tuesday ~ 4th of July Inspired

Purchased by Me

Hey dolls! Today I have photos for your of my Reader’s Choice Monday and Twinsie Tuesday mash up post. The winner of last week’s poll was color blocking with 53% of the vote. The theme for Twinsie Tuesday was 4th of July inspired, so I thought those two would go well together. I started with a base of L.A. Girl 3D Effects/Holo Brilliant Blue, a gorgeous navy blue that is filled with shimmer and holo particles. The formula was just as great as the other colors I’ve used from this collection. Two coats were used for opacity. Three coats of my favorite white, Orly Au Champagne, was used for the accent nails. After Au Champagne was dry, I taped off my nails and then applied Zoya Sooki (red) and Brilliant Blue into opposite sections.

I love the way this turned out. The only thing that would have made it better would be sunlight photos, but it’s been dreary and rainy here for the last few days. These L.A. Girl 3D Effects really do need the sun to show their sparkle. I am not a huge red fan as you all know, so just a pop of Sooki was good enough for me. I think I’ll just be relaxing and packing during the holiday. We were planning on going to the beach one last time before moving out of Florida, but the weather just does not want to cooperate. Do you have anything fun planned for the 4th USA dolls?

    What a unique manicure! Love the outfit! You’re right, we have been getting a great deal of rain lately. My husband and I are planning to see Kevin Harts’ new movie “Let Me Explain”, on the 4th. Have fun relaxing and packing :)
