Happy 4th of July!

Good morning, dear readers! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! It's a 3-day weekend here for my hubby, but we're sticking around town and cleaning up and organizing the house in preparation for the baby coming this summer. Sounds like fun, right? I'm crossing my fingers I don't end up with bad nail breaks as I tackle unpacking boxes from our move still. Wish me luck!

For today's post, I naturally had to share the nail art look I created for the holiday weekend. Let's check it out!
Nail Polishes and Products Used:
Above the Curve Nail Lacquer: Jingle Bell Rock
Black Cat Lacquer: Lapis Lazuli
Salon Perfect: Pa-tri-otic
Zoya: Genesis
Zoya: Ling

In other news, I had mentioned in a recent post that we were taking care of a stray kitten- plumping her up while we tried to locate her owner. We had no luck finding an owner, and after a trip to the vet to make sure she was healthy and bathing her, we decided to keep her. Meet my blog mascot, Calypso! She's curled up in my lap purring as I type up my post, and she has made herself right at home.

What are your plans this weekend? Have you done a holiday manicure? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!


  1. Ah! Your kitty is so cute and I am loving your mani! No fun plans for me this year – study, study, study!

  2. Such a great manicure! I love the flag nail! <3 And, Calypso is such a darling! <3

    1. Thank you! She is such a sweet kitten, and I'm so glad we decided to keep her.

  3. Ugh to organizing, yay to an awesome 4th mani! And I KNEW you'd keep her - I look forward to many more pics ;)

    1. I wish I could say I got a lot accomplished, but I'm afraid we still have a bit to do yet. At least we got about a dozen boxes taken care of! Calypso has settled in nicely although it is funny to see my rottweiler mix be so afraid of a 2 pound kitten, lol!

  4. Love this mani so much! Especially that ring nail, it looks stunning. And congrats on the new kitty! So adorable.

  5. I love that you used darker shades for this mani. Beautiful!

  6. Love it! I'm a fan of patriotic manicures. And yours is beautiful!

  7. Aww your new kitty is so cute! We also adopted a stray a few months ago and he has purred his way very deep into my heart :)
