Baby, you're a firework?

4th of July "firework" manicure, sunlight
Just doing a quick post to share my 4th of July manicure. I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. It's an old bottle, so my index finger came out especially lumpy. I repainted that nail with the red I used in this manicure, a Sally Girl snowman red from last year's holiday.  I've tested it on a nail wheel and it's super close to China Glaze Ruby Pumps.  Anyway, I intended the "splatters" on my nails to look like fireworks, but I don't think I was all that successful. I think part of the problem is that my nails are so short that I couldn't fit too many "fireworks" on there.  I'm still glad I did it, it was a new technique I learned from this youtube video from cutepolish. I think I may try it again later with a different color scheme.

Like I mentioned earlier, the red polish in this manicure is a Sally Girl brand polish that comes in a cute snowman bottle. I picked it up on clearance after the 2012 holiday. It's a red jelly polish with red glitter, just like China Glaze's Ruby Pumps and its many dupes.

For the blue in this manicure, I used Sinful Colors Into the Blue, from the Sail La Vie and Poolside collections. It should still be available at stores. I picked this polish up after someone on Makeup Alley did a comparison showing that it's very close to OPI Eurso Euro.  Into the Blue is a very dark blue creme polish. It's got a good formula and only needed 2 coats when I tested it on my thumbs.

Have you tried this kind of splatter nail look? What did you wear for the 4th of July?
