Week O’Nautical: 4th Of July Mani Pedi

Perfect s'mores pairing... a Patriotic July mani!

Perfect s’mores pairing… a Patriotic July mani!

Who else is in a 4th of July hangover!? I took Tuesday off for an extra long holiday weekend which is why mani Monday is going up on a Wednesday.  For the holiday weekend I went with a majorly patriotic mixed mani/pedi combo using Jambery nail wraps.  Like I’ve said before I really like using a base coat under Jamberry nail wraps.  I used Avon Ridge Filling Basecoat with these.

Mani:  From pinkie to thumb; Julep polish (old), Jamberry Kaboom, Jamberry Red White and Boom, Jamberry Star Spanged, Avon Gel Finish Roses Are Red.  I meant to put the Jamberry Fireworks over my ring and thumb but after I waited for the polish to dry I never got around to doing it.  Oh well, it would look cute for NYE too, guess I’ll save it.

Pedi:  I used Jamberry Star Spangled on my big toe and then Avon Gel Finish in Roses are Red with a red white and blue glitter by Julep (old).

I hope you survived the holiday weekend and got to enjoy some fireworks and some delicious s’mores too!  You can shop Jamberry here, Avon here and Julep here.  The 4th may be over but this works all summer long!  Plus, for the fan girls out there, check out the new Marvel releases from Jamberry for more fun!  They pair perfectly with all things Americana.

 

4th of July Hangover – Nails and Week O’Nautical Nightcap

I know, its Tuesday… which means anything 4th of July vacation related is nothing more than a memory.  Well, a memory and some awesome pictures!  Since we’re (well I at least) am back to the normal grind I can take the time to reflect on the sparklers that were the 4th on a Wednesday followed by some fun and a trip to the coast.  Since my week O’Nautical kinda got interrupted by life here’s my looks from last week complied together!

4th Of July:

My Target find  for straight up mega patriotic shorts makes me so happy that all my America holidays will be filled with classic denim cutoff goodness!  So good they even have their own name, my ‘merica’s!  My nails looks like fun fireworks with China Glaze’s Love Marilyn an opaque glitter of red and silver.  Between my sister and I this shade has got some good use last Christmas but it works just as amazing in July!  Too bad this polish chips like a mo fo no matter what I do, so its really only good for one day, if it will even last that long!

And for fun here’s how I nightcapped my week o’nautical:

My 4th was kinda nautical since I spent the entire day in the pool finished off with my ‘merica’s and a red tank to set of fireworks and bbq before a night swim to end the night!  As for ending my holiday week we went camping on the coast in Dillon Beach where I tried to be nautical but it was so cold I basically lived in my North Face but at least my toes stayed nautical and festive in Essie’s Too Too Hot, the perfect summer bright red with a coral edge!
