Fourth of July Nails!

 Hello everyone! Today I have my Fourth of July nails to share with you. I loved the design I did two years ago, you can see that one here if you like, that I wanted to do something like it again. I based the Bald Eagle head off this picture here since I wanted a more realistic eagle for this year.
 The base is Gelish gel polish in Black Shadow for the ring finger and Caution for the rest. The fireworks and eagle are all acrylic paint with the exception of the glitter, which is a glitter striper I picked up in Japan. I did the same thing on my right hand minus the eagle. I did the American flag with Gelish Arctic Freeze, Caution and OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress but didn't get a picture of it.

 I hope you guys have a great week! We are off to visit my family for a while but I do have some posts scheduled. 


  1. Do you have good luck using acrylic paint over gel polish? I haven't tried it yet... wasn't sure how it would turn out. This appears to be just lovely! Do you do anything different when painting an acrylic design over gel? I am a recently licensed nail tech myself and I really enjoy your blog! Would appreciate any tips! Thanks!
