4th of July Nails

Yesterday was the 4th of July, which is usually my second favorite holiday. This 4th of July was (tragically) special because one of my best friends bought a one way ticket to California. We celebrated her last full day in NYC by doing a greatest hits of Park Slope, including a mini nail session for me in Prospect Park.  I wish I could say my handiwork would have been better if I had been at a desk instead of a picnic blanket, but that would be a lie. 

My "secret" to nail designs is having a mechanical pencil handy (pun intended!) to dip into drops of nail polish. My fingers are not coordinated enough to handle most nail tools, because the handles are way too thin. Next time, my plan is to reverse the color scheme and get better at stars, so I can rock some Wonder Woman nails
