Happy 4th of July!

I'm back!  I've been away on a summer vacation, but I'm here just in time to post my 4th of July mani.  I normally do a fun red, white and blue design.  This year I wanted something different and "Lady Liberty" by Cirque was just perfect!  I topped it of with a coat of "Fairy Dust" by China Glaze to add some sparkle.  Have a safe and happy 4th of July!!!

Orly Sweet Dreams and Candy Shop

Here's another mani that I did using polishes from Orly's Sugar High Collection.  Sweet Dreams is a gray-ish taupe with pink and purple shimmer.  Candy Shop is a dark mauve crème (which was also used in the previous post).

Orly Sugar High

This spring Orly released the Sugar High Collection of 6 polishes.   Orly's description of this collection is,  "Deliciously whimsical colors take your inner girly girl on a candy-coated romp through the incredibly edible treats of childhood. Buttery frosting, delicate pink, a twist of lime, licorice and raspberry indulge your innermost cravings."

In addition to the full size polishes, they offered a set of 4 mini's which is what I chose to purchase.  I did a gradient using 3 of them. 

Cake Pop is a very pale pink toned crème. 
Key Lime Twist is a yellow pastel neon crème. 
Candy Shop is dark mauve crème.

Givers Theme and History Of The World

Here are the final two polishes that I chose from the Giver Collection.  Givers Theme is a medium purple crème polish.  History Of The World is a dusty navy blue crème polish.  I added a little bit of Sally Hansen glitter polish to the index finger just for fun.

Boundary Of Memory is another shade from the Giver Collection.  It's a black, silver and copper full coverage glitter polish.  It was opaque in two coats!
