In case you didn't get it from my Texas Flag Mani. I really really really love Texas. And March second is Texas Independence Day celebrating the day Texas separated from Mexico with the Texas Declaration of Independence which created the Republic of Texas. In elementary school we always celebrated Texas Independence Day with a chuckwagon lunch (usually accompanied by live music including a fiddle) and dancing the Cotton-Eye Joe in P.E. Now that I'm in college, nobody really cares :( I decided to celebrate by putting the state flower (bluebonnets) on my nails! :)
I started with three coats of a light blue Cosmetic Arts. I then used a brush to paint on Sinful Colors Exotic Green for the stem. I then used a dotting tool and Sinful Colors Neptune, China Glaze Electric Beat and NYC French Tip White.
Bluebonnets are so pretty, but unfortunately they don't grow in the semi-arid area of Texas that I live in. They do grow on my grandmother's ranch, which is just a few hours away. If I can't enjoy them in real life, at least I can have them on my nails :)
Happy Texas Independence Day Y'all! Go eat some delicious BBQ and listen to some country with a fiddle in it!
