Summer Challenge Day 34 - Bastille Day

Hi Goddesses

Bonjour, et vive La France!

It's Bastille Day today in France, a day that is as significant as July 4th is for Americans, and as France's colours are also red, white and blue, I went with an idea I'd been toying with for my Independence Day nails.

This is super simple, but still packs a little bit of punch.  Red, white and blue nails, with red, white and blue glitter, making sure you never put the same coloured glitter over the same coloured base.   So, if your nail is blue, it can't have blue glitter on it and so on.

As I did this a few weeks ago and forgot to write the colours down, I'm a little hazy on the base polishes, but I'd bet tonight's Chinese takeaway that it was SH White On SH Right Said Red and CG Blue Year's Eve.

The glitters were Nubar White Polka Dot, LA Girl Glitter Addict in Animate and LA Girl Glitter Addict in Aqueous, which in hindsight was too pale - I think I'd have been better off going for a darker blue than such a bright blue.

Glittered skittles are so easy, and also so summery.  If you're stuck for mani inspiration, pick some brights for your nails and then stick a great glitter on top.   You won't regret it.

Enjoy xx :)
