Happy 4th of July everyone! As promised on Facebook I have a post filled with goodies. Please welcome my first guest poster, fellow blogger and friend Lindsay.
Hello everyone!First let me introduce myself, I’m Lindsay from http://mycharmedaddictions.blogspot.com/.
This is a rich Merlot polish with a slightly jelly-like application (IT’S SO SHINYYYY!!!) and in some light leans a little more brownish-red. This is a black label OPI meaning this polish was produced with the big 3 chemicals (Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), and Toluene) and it makes the application a dream! This polish can be opaque in 2 coats but I did 3.
This was a major lemming of mine for a long time. I have to admit I love the name just as much as the color as I’m a huge supernatural genre fan, especially vampires. I have one person to thank for my Vampire State Building lemming being fulfilled and that is none other than Ms. Bottles and Bottles herself. :D
To make this mani really pop and add a little holiday flare I then layered 365 Days of Color American Spirit over the OPI VSB.
I have to say I love American Spirit much more than I thought I would, even though the bottle looks red it layers really well over most colors. It was also surprisingly easy to apply the smaller and larger glitters how I wanted on the nail (used the dab and smooth method).

Lastly my 4th of July fireworks nail! I used China Glaze Vegas to accent (don’t laugh at my middle finger accent nail Gia!!!) ;)
China Glaze Vegas is a medium sized super holo hex glitter that applies fairly sparse but becomes easy to build, similar application to a polish like China Glaze Snowglobe. I don’t really know much about the origins of China Glaze Vegas but stumbled upon it and had to have it because Vegas is my home and I’m a sucker for glitter.

Thank you so much for checking out my guest post! Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday celebrating our USA Independence Day.
