Pinned It & Did It! Patriotic Nails

That title is pretty self explanatory, right?  I searched Pinterest for "patriotic nails" and found some real jems (along with some duds), but here are some of my faves:

This one would take so much time, but I like the nautical theme (source)
Love this Simple Red, White & Blue Mani (source)

I'm a sucker for some chevron action! (source)

Love these patterns (source)
Super Patriotic (source)
This is one of  my faves - delicate patterns (source)
So with a ton of pinspiration under my belt, I was ready to get down to business with my nail polishes.  But let's be honest here, I am not that talented; so I needed something patriotic but easy but classy but nice but so many things... then I stumbled on this baby:

Here's the Inspiration (source)
With my Julep Jackie (Red) as the primary polish and a couple Avon shades, here's what I came up with:
Here's Mine!

Did I totally nail it? Nope... but the inspiration photo was done by a professional, not by a gal on her couch watching Master Chef for hours.  Are you going to do anything special with your mani to celebrate Independence Day?  Share pics below!

Love and Bacon,
Kelsey
