Twinsie Tuesday: 4th of July

Whoo, time really got away from me these past few, but Twinsie Tuesday should have me back on track with this week's theme, nails inspired by the 4th of July, aka American Independence Day. Mine are a backyard BBQ!

And left to right... For the cheeseburger on my index finger, I didn't actually have a good "burger bun" tan, so I mixed together 2 drops each of OPI San Tan-tonio, China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, and Revlon Elegant. The actual burger bits are all arylic paint, as are the fireworks (...ish...) bursts on the middle finger, which I swooshed on over Docile D224 for a little bit of night sky sparkle.

Ring Fingy is the ubiquitous red and white picnic table cloth, complete with equally ubiquitous picnic ants. It's red striper over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (best. white. EVAR.), and the ants are dotted polish and a little black striper. I expected ants to be easier than they apparently are... Mine look more like cooties from that Hasbro game I never played right because I was having too much fun building the little cootie guys to bother taking turns (plus that's how you roll when you're an only child).

So yeah, pinky is watermelon like I did last summer, and them's my Fourth of July nails! Looking forward to seeing my fellow Twinsies' interpretations too--have a great 4th and stay safe, y'all!
