Recollections Snow, Cherry and Marine

I wore this yesterday for Veteran's Day.  I love doing nail art, and when I get a free day, I jump at the chance of attempting it.  Even if it's not perfect, I like my nails with stuff that took me a while to achieve; it's mine, I did it.  I smudged the index right at the end of the mani, but then I was wishing I had smudged the others as well, to give it a wavy flag look.  Perhaps next time I'll incorporate something like that in the design.  I really like playing with these loose glitters, not sure if you remember this post.  However, they can be a bit messy; it's one thing what you have in mind, but when using these, it's another thing getting down to business.  Nonetheless, these are just top notch sparkly and amazing in real life.  The extra time is completely worth it.  Oh and if you haven't seen my Veteran's Day mani from last year, click here.
