Hello everyone!!  I hope everyone is doing great!!  I have been slacking on preparing manis for posting.  I have been simply enjoying the colors on my nails and not doing any nail art.  Just polish and glitter.  By the time I have remembered to take a picture I have tip wear.  I only post with tip wear if it is a great mani that I just love not just solid colored polish.

I have an instagram and my name is jmmama1.  Please follow me if you are interested.  I warn you it is not just nails.  I do take many pictures of my kids, hubby and other random things.  I am participating in a nail art challenge for the month of June so I will post those manis here.  The first one is spots.  I am trying to get better at my dotting so I chose to do something related to the Fourth of July since I have not posted one single mani for this holiday.  I am secretly waiting on my new Bundle Monster plates to try them.  I did purchase a Bunny Nails plate that has some pretty awesome images for the Fourth so we will just have to see what I come up with.

Mani Ingredients
Base color-Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Midnight Sky
Dots- Acrylic Paints Wicker White, True Blue and Metallic Bright Red
Top coat-Seche Vite

I hope that I can keep up with this challenge.  I feel like I have been slacking.  I am excited for the prompts though.  I will list them below just in case you would like to participate. To include your pictures you would post them to @thenailtrail and #thenailtrailjuly.

All are in July
