Red, White , & Blue President's Day Manicure

Hello Gorgeous Bloggers!

Hope your day is much warmer than mine has started out today! Sadly, the polar vortex has returned to Northwest Indiana and we are covered in snow again... Oh well not much I can do about it except wake up suuuuuuuuper early to get to work. Seeing as I am not much of a morning person, you can imagine how excited that makes me. Today I figured I would get a head start and begin posting some of my manicures for February. I decided to start with President's day only because it will probably get lost among a see of Valentine's day manicures.

Why do you ask am I so excited for President's Day... I usually am always looking forward to President's day because it's the day the company I work for has it's end of the year meeting and tells us whether or not we get bonuses! So I'll be keeping these Red, White & Blue fingers crossed! (Shortly after taking this picture I noticed I was missing the top of the anchor. WHOOPS!!)

I was so excited at how great my polka dots came out using my dotting tool. Oddly enough, my right hand came out way more symmetrical than my left and I am right handed so go figure! I was also excited to try doing a sugar spun nail. It was kind of messy but not hard at all. It kind of reminded me of the drizzling on top of chocolates. It might be fun to try that for Valentine's Day too.  The blue polish is 2 coats of Color Club's Inst-this (apparently this is my go to blue as it has been in the last two posts LOL) The red polish is one from Sephora I just got by Formula X called Farenheit. I am loving this red!!! Gorgeous right?! And the best part, totally opaque in like 1 coat!!! For the white polish I used Illamasqua's Scorch, although the frugal part of me is wishing I used a less expensive polish to do the sugar spun part with since it used quite a bit. Hope everyone has a fabulous day! As for me I guess I'll go back to trying to dig my car out now that I have defrosted a bit XOXO
