4th of July mani!

I think this may be the first time in my life that I've done a Independence Day mani. What really inspired me to do it is this gorgeous polish from Julep - America The Beautiful (though on the bottle it just says America). I became a Julep Maven last month (it only cost a penny, so how could I possibly resist?), and when they sent me the email preview of what was to come in my It Girl box for July I was psyched! I'm only using 2 of the polishes in this mani, but I will show the others in a future post.

For this mani I used Julep America (red), Julep Kate (white), and Essie Aruba Blue.

Then I felt like the white & blue needed some glitter, so I added Sally Hansen Ice Queen.
