4th of July Manicure

Hi everyone! I know this post is a few days early, but I did them last night and was eager to show them off! :P I'm not the greatest at nail art and it takes me a few tries to get it right, but I'm really happy with how this turned out! :D

For all my nails except my ring nail, I used Lynnderella Ruby Red Ruby, Shape Shifter and When the Moon was a Star in a gradient. My ring nail I started with Wet n Wild French White as a base color, then used Wet n Wild Everybody Love Redmond and Sinful Shine Most Sinful to create a firework and used loose bar glitters and small holo glitter to add some shine. ;)
If you are wondering why the glitter may look a little "fuzzy" on my nails, I used a glow in the dark top coat over them, but my camera wasn't cooperating picking it up in the dark. >_< I also added it to my firework, though again my camera didn't want to show it off. :P 
If you do plan on recreating the firework a fair bit of warning that adding the individual pieces of bar glitters is a pain in butt! I do think it help with the overall look, so it was worth it to me. ;) Also, to make the holo glitter easier to work with I mixed it with some top coat and applied it with a dotting tool.
