Happy 4th With 4 Patriotic Indies!

Today's post will be quick since my real 4th of July post I did yesterday!  But I can not bear to NOT show you these beautiful 4th of July polishes!  Today, I have four indie polishes for you that are all red, white and blue!
  • Lush Lacquer's Snap Crackle Pop:  A mixture of sizes and shapes of glitter.  It went on smoothly and easily in ONE coat.  It has a clear base coat though, so you need underwear for it! I had absolutely no issues with it.
  • Alter Ego Armed Forces Vet:  A micro glitter in red, white and blue. The base that Cynthia uses is a little on the thicker side, but it wears well and only needs one coat!
  • Lacquistry Custom Stars and Bars:  Clear base with holo stars and bars, blue and red hexes and bars. This gooped up a little on me and was hard to use. The glitters stuck to each other, but I still managed to coat my nail and it looks blingy!
  • Naild'It (Andeevie) Indie Pen-Dance: Clear base with a myriad of sizes and shapes. While this one needed four coats and some manipulation to get it on the nail, it laid flat and layered itself well. 

 And here they are on my nail!!!  I did use different colored underwear for each one. From L-R: Cult Nails Blackout, Cult Nails Time Traveler, SH White Out, and Orly Grave Mistake.
There were so many red, white and blue nail polishes in the indie world this year!  I didn't have a chance to get even a fraction of what I wanted, but hopefully this is a little bit of a help!

I have Pretty & Polished "Freedom Calling" and I LOVE it...of the ones you have, "Pen-Dance" is the closest. I also just got "Snap Crackle Pop", which is different enough from FC that it makes me happy! Thanks for sharing!

Oh my now it makes sense why you were having so much trouble with the Indie-Pendance polish of mine! I have not yet mastered the mini's and the right amounts of glitter to use in them! I took them outta the shop for that reason! :) I am happy to know this though!
