Happy 4th of July!!!

Hello everyone,
I am not dead!! Sorry I have been mia for the past week. I have been busy and didn't have time to do my nails let alone post on here. I am back now and should have time to post this week. I have told you before about the facebook group Polish-aholics Anonymous and the Monday Nail Art Challenge. Last Monday I did not participate in the challenge because the theme was floral and there was no way to incorporate flowers into my True Blood mani. Well this weeks theme was Patriotic. I am addicted to the splatter technique! After finishing the red and blue splatter, I decided to take the splatter to the next level by adding stamping on top... not sure if I have seen that anywhere before. Maybe I am the first lol. In my opinion my nails look like a 4th of July explosion happened on them, but I actually really like them. Well here they are:

For this design I used WnW French Creme White as the base. Then using NYX Ink Heart and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Cherry Red, I did splatter on all of the nails. To see my tutorial on splatter nail art go here. I put on a coat of SV and then using a fauxnad plate and WnW French White Creme, I stamped on some stars. I also used a small striping brush to add a little firework on my ring finger. I really like the way this turned out, especially using the same color as the background to stamp with. I hope you enjoyed this and sorry that I have been mia for almost a whole week.

P.S. I have been receiving emails about comments on my blog but when I go to my blog they are not there. I just want everyone to know that I am not deleting comments. Blogger is just being weird and not posting the comments. Thank you for all of your sweet comments though, they are greatly appreciated :)
