Happy 4th of July! Watermelon Wednesday

Happy 4th of July to all of my wonderful American ladies! Such a beautiful country we live in despite all the problems. Today I've got sort of an unconventional 4th of July mani for you all.

I'm in a Birthday Swap group on Facebook with some amazing, crazy ladies and we were talking and decided to do watermelon manis for the holiday and I couldn't wait to try it. Watermelon definitely reminds me of hot Florida summers, late nights, fireworks and the holidays so what a perfect idea. I have great memories sitting around my backyard watching the fireworks with a picnic and my family. A lot of you told me during my last giveaway that you'd like to see more nail art, and we aim to please so here goes!

For this mani, I used Floam by Nail-Venturous (which was a HUGE lemming of mine until I got my hands on it), China Glaze Love's A Beach and Nina Ultra Pro Black.

I pained Love's a Beach as a base on my index and ring finger and two coats of Floam on my middle and pinky. As the "rind", two light coats of Floam and little black seeds :) I'm still practicing so don't be to critical!

Here are the other ladies doing Watermelon Wednesday with me!

That's all for tonight ladies! I hope you all have a fun and SAFE holiday! I'm heading downtown to the fireworks show with an old friend!
