The One With the Fourth of July Dot Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world and Happy Fourth of July!!!!  I'm kind of disappointed in myself, I only had time for one festive manicure this year, and it's one I've already done.  I blame the heat.  We have had higher humidity and temperatures than Miami.  I'm fine when it comes to the heat, but I am not fine when it comes to the humidity.  Nothing is worse than when you walk outside and cannot even breath because the air feels so heavy and wet.  Then add high temperatures....ugh it's unbearable.  It's supposed to be like that again today too.  Although, it does make for some wonderful nights, which means it will be lovely firework weather.

Anyways, as I said before I went on a weather tangent, I'm kind of upset that I'm sharing with you a manicure I've already done for the Fourth.  I believe when I was looking through my Instagram, I did this two years ago, so in the end it's okay to re-create.  Plus, I love the negative space dot manicure, and I haven't done one in awhile.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • OPI - Having a Big Head Day
  • OPI - My Pal Joey
  • OPI - Alpine Snow
I'm really digging the negative space manicures lately.  I posted one a few weeks ago, and I just need to do more now that my nail grew out.  The dot one is one of my favorites, and so easy to do.  First you start off with a normal base coat.  I use FingerPaints Gel Like Base Coat (seriously this is an amazing base).  When that's dry, I took my white polish and a large dotting tool and started adding dots.  When the white dried, I did the same with red, then the blue.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Do you like the negative space?

I hope that everyone has a Happy and SAFE Fourth of July!!!  Don't go blowing your fingers off with fireworks!!!  More importantly, don't drink and drive.

Until next time, <3.
