Glittering Stars and Stripes

(**Press Samples**)
Good evening loves!! 

 I hope you are all having a marvelous Friday! In this post I want to share some quick and fun patriotic glitter layerings that almost did not get posted haha.... That moment when you realize you drafted a post you meant to go up Two days ago.... Oy..... 

The first pairing is all KBShimmer. The awesome starry blend is KBShimmer Red, White and Blue-tiful. Per KBShimmer Red, White and Blue-tiful features mini metallic stars in those classic colors. It features holo marine blue stars, added silver holo graphic stars, and finished with metallic red stars and a scattering of red holo stars.  Swimming among the stars are micro red, sliver and blue glitters and micro holographic glitters for a sparkly finish.  This limited edition polish will be available through the end of July. 
 I used the method shown in my chunky glitter application video. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease with which the stars came out and stayed on the nail. I also love that the stars are tiny and they lay flat on the nail. The added touch of small hexes gives this topper a really fun twist. I layered it over KBShimmer Lo and Be Bold. I topped these off in some KBShimmer Clearly on Top. 

The next starry topper is Salon Perfect's Star Spangled. This fun topper is a blend of larger satin-matte stars in Red, White and Blue and small holo silver glitter suspended in a clear base. Once again I used the same method of application. This topper also was fairly easy to work with. I did no fishing for the stars, they actually came out with ease. Shown over Cult Nails Nevermore. 

 The final topper is Salon Perfect's Grand Finale. This topper is a blend of holo silver bars, metallic blue bars and metallic red bars. Once again I was surprised at the ease of application of this polish, Another nice thing is that the bars actually stay flat on the nail. I used the same application method for this topper. Shown over Cult Nails Tempest. 

Have a fantastic evening, happy Friday and thanks for coming by!
