4th of July Nails & Weekend Shopping

Happy 4th of July, my fellow Americans! Are you doing anything fun to celebrate? I can't wait to see the fireworks this year. For the last five summers, they have been over the Hudson but this year they're back on the East River. It will be great to see them above the bridges again!

I've been thinking about my 4th of July mani from the moment I laid eyes on Incoco's patriotic Independence Day collection (which I received for review - read my disclosure policy here). Any of the three designs would have been perfect and I chose this glittery stars & stripes one. The design is actually called Independence Day :) I'm totally crazy about it! 'MERICA!

Just for fun, here's a look back at my last few 4th of July manis: 2013 | 2012 | 2011 - includes pics inside the Statue of Liberty!

And here's a little weekend shopping for the long weekend:

    1. It's so great that the glitter is just about opaque - this would have been really trick to recreate using glitter polish lol

  3. This is gorgeous, I love it!
