4th of July

   Happy 4th to all of my American readers! I hope you all have a good one. I'm not doing much this year, but my neighbors have been shooting off fireworks all week!
   In honor of Independence Day, I of course have to make some sort of nail design. I didn't want to make the usual flag nails or anything though, I wanted to do something a little different. So I researched American Revolutionary War uniforms and found on that would be easily recognizable (the background picture here on Colonial Williamsburg's website is perfect!). Then I added fireworks and, as a last resort (my creativity was running low this week), I added some flags. But they aren't the usual flags! I wanted to make some older looking flags, but I didn't have the right color red. So instead I just made two flags that were shaped in a way that we don't usually see.

   And my pointer finger's nail is left blank, because I was a mess that day and my creativity levels were really suffering... Oh well!
   I used very few colors this week and they're pretty easy to pick out, so I'll just list them today.
