Happy Labor Day! with my nails

Summer don’t leave me!  Stay just a little bit longer, pretty please!  I promise to celebrate you with killer neon nails, short shorts and bare feet!

I’m celebrating the unofficial end of summer blowout with some ‘Merica nails… red white and blue through and through!

Labor Day Nails - Julep Kate and America - The Beautiful

Labor Day Nails – Julep Kate and America – The Beautiful

I used my July Julep Bombshell Box to create this look with:

Kate, soft white pearl and America-The Beautiful, shiny red with royal blue glitter and sterling silver stars, it’s like nail art in a bottle.

I love Kate, and has been my go-to-white all summer and how perfect for labor day #notd dripping in red white and silver glitter!  I wish there were more stars in my bottle, i didn’t get any in this paint session but overall America The Beautiful is PERFECT for all my favorite American holidays for years to come!

If you haven’t tried Julep yet I HIGHLY recommend giving this beauty box of the month subscription service a whirl.  The polishes are great and they give you a bonus gift which is just as luxe.  So for $19.99 you get 2 polishes and a full size bonus item and sometimes an extra bonus item!  Plus right now you can get your intro box FOR A PENNY!  Seriously, no gimmick.  Only  a penny and if you don’t like it you don’t have to continue with it… Check out Julep, sign up for your penny box here:  http://julep.com/?r=20109417 use code COLOR2012

And enjoy some bbq, swimming and family and friends this labor day to take summer out with a bang!  Obiv I have been enjoying my pool time a lot this weekend hence the tip wear 😉

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!
