Patriotic Nails for 4th of July

Yay America! What I want to know is who is pushing the fast forward button on life right about now? Tomorrow is a day we celebrate our Freedom and those who fight to keep it. It means bar-b-q's, beer, sun, fun and good times. I think we will be taking in some fireworks - which of course is my favorite! I had to have a patriotic mani to match the occasion. I started with two coats of NOPI Please Red-Cycle, I don't have a lot of reds in my collection, but this one is a beautiful opaque jelly. It could probably work with one thick coat if needed.

 I then used two coats of Orly Peaceful Opposition. I don't care how many polishes have square or large round glitter in them ~ NEED! I used two coats which gave a nice white jelly glitter finish. I then stamped the heart/firework image from Bundle Monster plate 317 with China Glaze First Mate and Ruby Pumps.
Fun fact, Pikes Peak is located in Colorado Springs and was the inspiration for Katharine Lee Bates to pen the words to America the Beautiful. It's also the "purple mountain majesty." Have a great day and be safe ~
