Happy 4th & Crazy Puppies

Happy 4th of July to my U.S. ladies! It's amazing to me that we're already at this point in the summer. Soooo it may be a bit harder to keep up with new manis considering I have the holy terror of puppies. The honey and I decided big baby lab was pretty bored and needed a partner in crime. Funny the one I pick out sleeps in my lap and seems so sweet every time I see him. 

Skip forward to actually bringing him home. Ear piercing barking, flies down the stairs with no fear, rams his 16.5 lbs of body weight into you if he doesn't get to go where he wants and decapitates his fuzzies (I didn't think this was even possible for puppies?!). Needless to say we have our hands more than full. When he decided to take a nap this morning I used the time to create a festive mani.

Started with a BC. The red is China Glaze Hey Sailor, great with one coat, but used a thin second coat to smooth it out. This really is the perfect red cream, so shiny! I used Sinful white striper Bad Chick for the stripes. I used First Mate from the same ChG collection, this was a one coater. Great dark blue cream. I then stamped the star/flag image from plate m14 with special white konad and sealed with Orly Sec N Dry. 

It's been crazy hot so big brother and little brother went for a swim the past few days. Wishing you all a safe and relaxing holiday~proud to live in this beautiful country!
