So this holiday weekend was a very chaotic one and I meant to document more, but I was having too much fun to remember. (Sorry!) I did manage a couple of decent snaps into the weekend which I will share below!
One thing I was really excited about was this very cute DIY 4th of july mani pictured here:
Isn’t it cute?! Ipsy posted a do it yourself on their blog. If you’re interested in recreating it: Tutorial here!
I ended up using colors I had that fit the bill for nail polish (pictured below):
RED – 49 Deep Red by Isadora
Blue – 02 Blu by Sally Hansen
White – Blanc by Essie
and the OPI top coat
I didn’t have the manicure tape, so I did a little makeshift version to be cost effective by cutting regular tape into skinny strips. I was really proud of the outcome and got tons of compliments!
I ended up taking my lovely mani sunning on a lake (Bantam Lake) in Connecticut. I fully enjoyed the fresh air and sun!
Later on I of course was very traditional and went to a BBQ and gorged on numerous delicious foods– all of which dissappeared before I could snap a pic of anything except some festive adult treats that I partook in! They were really yummy!
If you’re interested in recreating these, I think this link is similar to what they were, click here! (Though I think the middle white part was made with pina colada vodka!)
And of course, what would 4th of July be without fireworks? I got some rather blurry pictures of some below!
So that was my weekend: Mani, sun, boating on a lake, eating, adult beverages, and fireworks!
Did you celebrate 4th of July? If so, where did you go & what did you do? I always love to know!
