Summer Challenge: Bastille Day
Today's Summer Challenge is Bastille Day. I am embarrassed to say that I had no idea what this day celebrated, besides it being sort of like our Independence Day. According to Wikipedia, Bastille Day commemorates the storming of the Bastille Fortress, a symbol of the first uprising of a modern nation. See? Summer Challenge is fun AND educational! lol
I decided to go with French tips and fireworks in French colors. I used some Sally Hansen French tip manicure stickers as a guide, since I have trouble free-handing it.
Okay, I am going to admit that I stared at my thumb for way too long last night. I am sooo happy with the fireworks on this thumb! I used some silver, blue, and red, to make the firework streaks. Then I added just a couple blue and red dots and topped it with some red and silver glitter.
Charlie says hello!
From left to right, I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Celeb City, OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, China Glaze White on White, Essie Russian Roulette, and Essie Mesmerised. I bought some Burt's Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream for $4.99 at the grocery store yesterday. I like it because it goes on light, moisturizes, and gives your nails a lemony smell (a good one...not like bathroom cleaning lemony smell :)
