This week,I completed a manicure for the weekly challenge in Adventures In Stamping. Since July 4th, was this week, the challenge was to complete a manicure showing our patriotic side. I completed my first manicure with the usual Red, White and Blue nail polish's. I incorporated stars and fireworks in by using stamps along with a star embellishment surrounded by dots.
Both thumbs were stamped with the stars.
I live on 40 acres in the country. I am a country girl at heart. I love to mow grass, grow a garden, and shot guns. I would rather wear jeans and a t-shirt instead of dressing up. So I can be classified as a "REDNECK". I decided that I was going to use the 4th of July manicure and turn it into a "Redneck 4th of July" manicure.
I have learned how to make water decals by watching several YouTube videos. I have not developed a knack for freehand drawing items on my nails. So by using the water decals my options were unlimited. I picked several clipart pictures that reminded me of "Redneck" people doing during the 4th of July.I painted a wide strip of WnW white polish down the middle for the water decals to be applied.
