Semi-inspired 4th of July nails

Hi bloggers!

I did this manicure not thinking about it being a 4th of July look but it kind of turned out that way. I started out with a Love & Beauty polish with super chunky glitter. 
I had planned on only using this glitter but to get as much glitter as I wanted, I would have had to do at least five coats and I just didn't want to take the time to do that so I grabbed a finer glitter polish called Kaleidoscope from Wet N Wild. 
Finally on top of that, I added a crackle. Sally Hansen's Cherry Smash Crackle Overcoat. 

I really liked how this turned out but it was a pain to get off since the first glitter was soo chunky! I used the foil method to try and take it off but didn't have the patience to wait for it to really work so I had to scrub some to get it all off but oh well. 

Hope everyone has a good Fourth of July and if you don't live in the United States, then I hope you just have a good good in general!
