Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

I have the song "Yankee Doodle Dandy" stuck in my head right now.  Oy!

This is my second ever Independence Day koni (short for konadicure).  I hope you like it.  I started with two coats each of OPI DS Fantasy and China Glaze Ruby Pumps.  Both applied excellently, I'm happy to say!

I then added the shooting star design from plate m33 using Konad Special White polish.

Next, I added more stars using two different designs from plate m3 with Konad Special Silver polish.  Got a little carried away here.  :)

And then I painted on white stripes to the Ruby Pumps fingers using a white Stripe Rite polish I got at Sally Beauty Supply.  This was my first time using a Stripe Rite and I was very pleased with how easy it is.  It's basically like normal polish but comes with a really long, skinny brush.  The formula is smooth and almost totally opaque.

You will notice my right hand below.  Mostly I just wanted to reassure my readers that I in fact do have a right hand.  :)

The big white star on my ring finger smudged a little.  I have no idea why, but at least it's not terrible.

Mm mm mm!  Star-spangled goodness on ma hands!

I am in shock about having to get up at 5:30 tomorrow morning for an early work shift.  I haven't been getting up early for quite some time!  *sigh*  My only consolation is that I will have these pretty little fingers to look at.

That's a fantastic 4th mani! Very festive. I have some of those pens from Sally but haven't tried them yet. Glad to hear they're easy to use.

Thank you! I had fun doing it. I hope you like your pens, too!

I've never heard the expression Konadicure lol I love it!

Nail Rookie - I'm sure I picked it up on the nail board of MUA! :) Not sure if they still use the term or not... I love it.

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
