Happy 4th of July!!!!

Today I have 2 4th of July manis to show you. First is the mani that I wore on Monday... 
 For this mani I used O.P.I. "Alpine Snow" China Glaze "Blue Year's Eve" and "Ruby Pumps" and Icing "Patriotic Princess"

I started out with a coat of "Alpine Snow", and then used "Alpine Snow", "Blue Year's Eve" and "Ruby Pumps" to do a gradient sponging on each nail.

 I then applied one coat of "Patriotic Princess" to each nail

My second mani I tried something a little different. This time I started with 1 coat of Spoiled "Correction Tape" and then applied striping tape like such:

Then using Essence "Glamorous Life" and "Hard To Resist" I sponged over the striping tape.
"Correction Tape"

"Glamorous Life" 
Some of the striping tape moved during the sponging process, but I still like the outcome :)

 "Hard To Resist"

 On my ring finger I used 2 coats of Julep "America"

Well that's it for today. Thanks for reading and I hope everyone had a fun, and hopefully cool day. It's been in the 100's here today!
