4th of July Stripes for a Busy Girl's Summer Nail Challenge

Hello beautiful! I'm a big fan of nail challenges and so it was an honor to be invited by the lovely DrinkCitra to the Busy Girl's Summer Nail Challenge! I also love doing nail art with a special theme for a holiday and so today's design is combining the two elements of the challenge which for week one is stripes as well as the American Independence holiday!

If you are interested in joining this summer nail challenge, you can find all the details below. Come on in and join us!

 My design utilizes three polishes all from L.A.Colors. 
White: Color Craze nail polish in Energy Source NP402
Red: Art Deco nail art lacquer in Red
Blue: Art Deco nail art lacquer in Sapphire

I used three coats of the white for a base color. Once this was completely dry I used the red and blue stripper brush polishes and interchanged each stripe on the white base. For the accent finger I did a chevron pattern tip and added some simple red and blue stars to complete the design inspired by the American flag.

I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
