Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th everyone!  Here in beautiful Florida, it is not so sunny...its quite rainy.  But!  Thats fine by me, I enjoyed waking up to the sound of rain and now have a mini lake outside my apartment.  Im crossing my fingers that it will clear up later, but if it doesn't I suppose I can curl up and watch the fireworks on TV.  For now though, lets check out what I've got going on for my 4th mani!  I've actually already worn another patriotic mani courtesy of Glitter Daze, but haven't shared it yet.  I also still have to put on my JINDIE-Pendence by Jindie Nails which I think I will do after writing this post!  I see I got side tracked again, so back to what I have to share now.  Currently I am wearing my Julep America and China Glaze Frostbite.  I know what your thinking; "Its summer and your wearing a polish called Frostbite?"  LOL  yes, I am.  It was the perfect blue to go with Julep America!  Its probably one of my favorite blues now that I've worn it.  I will say that both nail polish companies have greatly improved their formula/brushes since these two polishes.  I had minor issues with both polishes, each one had teeny tiny brushes that were difficult to work with.  For the China Glaze I had to use 3 coats to finally achieve its full glory, and the small brush was difficult to work with.  Now the Julep I bought last year during the fourth, was just getting into indie nail polish and never got around to wearing it.  So, it sat for a year before being touched.  I noticed it did get a bit goopy over the course of the year, but I suppose that is kind of expected with such a glitter packed nail polish.  I also noticed my brush had a few stray pieces flaring out.  Luckily both these brands have improved their quality of product since then!  I am not saying either of these polishes were horrible, but that they put up a bit of fight.  The fight was well worth it though, I love each polish and cant wait to use each one again!  Have fun celebrating tonight where ever you are!
