Alter Ego Armed Forces=Happy Memorial Day!

What better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with a beautiful indie patriotic glitter?!  
 My father was a Marine in Vietnam, two uncle's served in the Air Force and Marine Corps, my grandma was a nurse in the Navy and helped Jewish prisoners who were not killed by Hitler during WWII, I served in Desert Storm in the Marine Corps.  Needless to say, I am patriotic to the core!!!!!  **********
Today I want to show you Alter Ego's Armed Forces Vet!  It is a micro glitter with red, white and blue.   On the right hand, I put a coat of OPI Meep, Meep, Meep on pinkie and middle finger and Cult Nails Time Traveler on the index and ring finger.  I then put two coats of Armed Forces Vet on each nail.  If you look closely, you will see that I put a matte top coat on the pinkie and ring finger and a glossy Seche Vite top coat on the middle and index finger!
You can see the beautiful sparkle that the glossy top coat brings out, but there is always something special about a matte coat too!  Armed Forces Vet was a little thick (in the head just like some of the men I was in the Marine Corps with!) but nothing I couldn't handle.
On my left hand, I put a white base coat on my pinkie and middle finger and no base coat on my ring and index finger.  Each finger still has two coats of Armed Forces Vet-even the fingers without a colored base coat.
Armed Forces Vet goes on the nail uniformly and covers quite well!  I love the versatility of it and wanted to do it over black as well just for fun. It does settle quite a bit in the bottle, but it is nothing that a few seconds of shaking won't fix!  I put a glossy top coat on the pinkie and ring fingers and a matte top coat on the middle and index fingers.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and take time to thank a vet!
