Happy Independence Day!

4 Jul

patriotic nails, patriotic mani, Sinful Colors Endless Blue, OPI Coca-Cola Red, FingerPaints Red White & Hue

To celebrate the holiday I decided to go all out and paint my nails patriotic colors.  I’ve never used so many polishes at once!

I’m wearing OPI Coca-Cola Red, Sally Hansen White On, Sinful Colors Endless Blue, OPI My Signature is DC (on my thumbs) and 3 different glitter toppers – Sephora by OPI Be-Claus I Said So,  Sinful Colors Diamonds Are Forever, AND FingerPaints Red, White & Hue.

Whew!

My family has been on vacation  the past few days.  Here’s a photo we took before riding the alpine slide in Durango, Colorado.

The drive home ended up being the worst part of the trip and ridiculously long thanks to a GPS glitch that sent us on what had to be the longest route possible.  Then, while driving through a small town a train signal and the gates malfunctioned and were stuck in the down position causing all traffic both ways to be stuck at a standstill for a half hour.

And then, we arrived home just in time to drive through this:

Still, it was a fantastic vacation, and the first one I can remember where no one got sick, something that always seems to happen when my family travels.

So, how about you?  Do you have summer travel plans?
