I used China Glaze Liquid Leather for the black tips, a mix of Salsa and It's So Easy Stripe Rite in Red Glitter for the red strip. Millennium was used for the Bundle Monster Plate BM21 I used for the stars. I coated with Seche Vite twice.

The nails were base coat colored with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I applied a purple glitter on top and then for the right hand applied square rhinestones for the "1980" On the left hand circle rhinestones were applied first to adhesive strips you use to put on artificial nails and then on top of the manicure.

I don't have the patience to write out every color of every nail, so I'll give you a general list. I first painted a base coat of white so the neon would pop with White On White and the five colors used for my ten nails are: China Glaze Shocking Pink, Celtic Sun, Japanese Koi, In The Lime Light and Essie Perky Purple. Other colors that popped up in the work were Solar Power, In Awe Of Amber, Sun Worshiper. I also used a mix of So Easy Stripe Right colors for a lot of the picture detailing. Two coats of Seche Vite for the top coat.

Since Kari was here at my house, we turned hers into festival nails as well--strawberry flowers and their dirt. She came up with the idea and executed all painting but the flowers.
I first base coated with China Glaze Something Sweet. The Strawberry is a mix of Salsa on bottom with some Sexy Silhouette as an accent pink/red shimmer. I dotted Black and Gold Metallic with So Easy Stripe Rite for the seeds and use China Glaze Four Leaf Clover mixed with Hot Green So Easy Stripe Rite. I used two coats of Seche Vite this time.
Kari actually painted her nails herself and I painted the strawberry flowers. The base color is China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise and the flowers are a mix of First Kiss for the flower, and Solar Power and Lemon Fizz for the fruit. The other hand is supposed to represent the dirt these strawberries need to grow and that was In Awe of Amber. Seche Vite was the top coat.

I used China Glaze Peachy Keen as a base orange and then topped with two coats of Zoya Sienna. I hand painted the stripes on my ring finger with So Easy Stripe Rite polishes and then coated with Seche Vite to finish the look.

First I base coated my nails with OPI Skinny Dip'N in Lake Michigan. I used China Glaze Tinsel, Sexy Silhouette and Claire's Daring/Innocent Mood Changing Polish for the three marble colors. I used two coats of Seche Vite to finish the look.
