Fourth of July Nail Art Ideas

Happy Independence Day friends!

If you are still unsure about what to do on your nails today, I’ve got some fairly easy Fourth of July nail art ideas for ya that might help.

The following four manis were done using Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics shades NSFW, Feathered, Rx and Arsenic with KB Shimmer Clearly On Top as the top coat. The OCC shades are really great for these kind of looks because you only need one coat of Feathered and Rx because they’re really pigmented. I used two coats of NSFW.

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for Face

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 For Face

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for Face is a new sunscreen that I have been testing out recently and have come to really like.

Now that it is officially summer, most dermatologist’s (including mine) recommend a higher SPF since the sun’s rays can be more powerful this time of year, and the days are longer which exposes you to more sunlight.

This stuff is fast-absorbing, oil-free, non-comedogenic and sweat & water resistant for 80 minutes. It comes in three types: SPF 30, SPF 50 or SPF 70. It also includes oat, which is supposed to help hydrate and nourish your skin.

Michael Kors Spring Lip and Nail Duo

Michael Kors Spring Lip and Nail Duo

I wasn’t even aware that there was such a thing as the Michael Kors Spring Lip and Nail Duo until I went to my local CCO (Cosmetics Company Outlet) and saw it. In fact there were three of these sets, but this was the one that stood out to me the most because of the blue nail shade. The set at a CCO is $25.75 and if you find it elsewhere it’s $32.00.

Included in these little duos are a full-sized (I think) Nail Lacquer shade and a Lip Luster shade. They are both decorated with theĀ  gold Michael Kors caps, which makes them look extra fancy. Too bad they are plastic and not metal! These shades are not sold separately, just so you know.

This new collection features six new uber-bright shades. Some are cremes, some are glitters some are shimmers. These aren’t all neons, but a couple definitely qualify in my eyes. It’s a fun tropical-hued collection and these shades all make me so happy looking at them. Also: SOMEONE PLEASE SEND ME SOMEWHERE TROPICAL STAT!

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick for Fall 2014

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick for Fall 2014

There are four new shades of Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick for fall 2014 as part of their Smitten Kitten collection, and I’ve got ‘em for ya!

These lip colors are some of my very favorite that have come out in a long time. You can check out my first review of them here, if interested. They are a hybrid of a lipstick and a lip gloss, are super pigmented, super creamy, easy to wear and just overall completely amazing. They have a nice color range now, which keeps on growing (yay!)
