New theme ... America?

In an effort to curb my shopping addiction I've been perusing the internet just "browsing" the new spring/summer clothes and I think I've encountered the newest trend for summer. Now this is less runway inspired and more music festival great american BBQ kinda thing. Drum roll please...

Sporting the American flag 

You can scoop up you patriarchal denim cutoffs at Nasy Gal 


or the the old faded glory look here

this dress is currently out of stock but add it to your wish list 


In case your not into the stripes and field of blue approach Urban Outfitters has you covered 

So get your red white and blue on this summer

So nail art seems to be having a real moment. With a tight budget and an endless amount of time on my hands this was a way to fill my Tuesday night ...please don't judge
So my nails are so on point it could be confused with a  Mondrian  replica. Below is a step-by-step on how I did it.

 I started by painting them white for the base while leaving my ring finger red for the double C's

 After the white was dry I drew on the lines the best part is it doesn't have to be even 
 This is where it gets tricky. I would suggest using a clean brush and dipping it in to the color you want to fill in your squares with. Using black,red,yellow and blue you can fill in the squares with any color combo you want or if you want to roam a bit from the original use any color combination that floats your boat. After the colors were done I placed the C's on and secured them with two coats of top coat.
 what you'll need
I found these on Ebay!

Have fun.... be advised this takes time and practice
Let me know what your favorite nail pattern is
