Hi guys! Long time, not talk....again. I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to bail on you all. At all. I really appreciate you sticking with me. More than I can say. Life just got pretty busy for me. Some good, some not so good things. I have really missed blogging though, and am back for good. I have so much polish, and so many manis. to show you guys it's crazy. I may not have been blogging for awhile, but I was still doing manis, and taking pics. of all of them. So, I'm kind of backlogged. I guess that's kind of a good thing? That just means I have a lot more to blog about, huh? ;-)
I hope all of you in the United States, had a happy 4th of July! Those of you not living here, I hope you had a great day! ;-) I ate entirely too much! We had a BBQ with just tons of food, and desserts. It's been extremely hot here this summer, so there has been a burn ban on fireworks. Our city still had the fireworks display tonight, so we went to that.
It's 1:30 in the morning here so technically, it's not July 4th anymore. However, I'm going to show you my July 4th mani. I hope that's alright. ;-)
I started out using Star Spangled from Girly Bits. It's a blue jelly, with red and blue glitter. It also has red bar glitter in it. I absolutely LOVE this polish. It's pretty much perfection in a bottle. It applied like a dream. I had absolutely no problems with application at all. I used two coats. I then applied a new polish from Icing called Patriotic Princess. PP has holo stars, and round medium sized red and blue glitter in a clear base. I was prepared for the stars to be hard to get out, but they weren't! I think this might be the first polish, that has stars in it, that they were actually easy to get out. That I own anyway. I just used one coat over SS.

I have one more mani. to show you today. I wore this one yesterday....well, the day before the 4th. ;-) I keep forgetting that it's actually the 5th now, since it's so late.
Anyway, I started out using China Glaze Adventure Red-Y which is a great red creme from the new Safari collection. I found it at Sally's Beauty Supply. I was surprised to see the collection out already. Adventure Red-Y applied pretty well. It was just a little sloppy, but I'm not sure if that was the actual polish, or just myself being in a hurry. I used two coats, but you could def. get away with only one! I layered one coat of Meteorites Moonshot on top. Moonshot is has red,silver, and blue bar glitters in a clear base. I don't know too much about this brand, except they make quite a few really great bar combos. You can find most of them on ebay, which is where I got mine.

I'm off to bed now, as it's almost 2am! Thanks so much for reading! It's good to be back! :-)
