Memorial Day mani!

As today is Memorial Day, my first mani to share is something patriotic! I am a proud American and ask that you give a moment of thanks to all who have served this beautiful country. Being from a military family, I get a little choked up at such times. My dad was Navy, my uncles were Marines, and my BFF just finished her stint in the Navy. Needless to say, I have special fondness for the Navy and Marines. And yes, I watch NCIS.   

Now, moving onto the mani-that's what you'r here for, yes? This is…an assortment of art. I wanted a flag, but it’s a lot of work and I have yet to pull off a great tape mani. So I did the thumb with the American flag, a variation on the middle finger, dots on ring and forefingers, and a nail decal of Uncle Sam’s hat on the pinkie (no way can I freehand that!). I used China Glaze White on White, China Glaze Eyes Like Sapphires, and Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby.   

 In the shade...

In the sunlight...

So that’s my first “official” mani as a nail blogger. I will be back again later this week with another one! Happy Memorial Day!



  1. How cool! I love the mani and the patriotism behind it. So glad you started the blog, darling; have funA

  2. They look great!

  3. They look fabulous! Thank you for not being afraid to show your patriotism; too many people are. As the daughter and granddaughter of Marines and with family having served in every branch of the US military, pride in country means a lot to me. I wish I could duplicate this for every patriotic holiday! I'm so glad you decided to start the blog!

  4. Love them. You almost make me wish I was addicted to polish. Almost. :)
    Olivia is going to love this!

  5. I like your middle nail and thumb the best - good job!
