Happy 4th of July!!! I’m going to make this post short and sweet because I know a lot of you have festivities to get to today!
This design was inspired by this outfit from Deb Shops.

To create the distressed look of this design I used a piece of crumpled up plastic wrap! I’ve been seeing a lot of solid and bright designs popping up all over the web for the 4th, but I wanted something a little bit different. I used striping tape to achieve the solid white lines. I also added a few white stars (completely optional) using a small brush and white acrylic paint.

I started with a white polish as the base and then added China Glaze’s White Cap to add a little bit of gold shimmer. The blue polish is China Glaze’s First Mate and the red is China Glaze’s City Siren.

I hope you all have a fabulous 4th of July! For the adults… No drinking and driving! Please be responsible! Children… Please be careful with fireworks! I guess I should be telling the adults to be careful with the fireworks too. ;)
