...But until the US government starts listening to my holiday day/date suggestions and changes the US's birthday, we'll just celebrate July 4th on July 4th. This year it falls smack in the middle of the week. Lame (only because I'm at work today and everyone else I know is at home). Something that is not lame is So What! Wednesday (nice transition, right?)
For today's So What! I want to share with you guys (gals) an obsession I have. No...not more on Hello Kitty (for the moment). This is another obsession. It's nail art. Every one of my So Whats! are going to be nail related. How about that for some Freedom?! Nail design freedom y'all :)
So What! I cannot wait to try Ciaté caviar nail pearls. What? You haven't heard of these? I saw a photo and was intrigued. Then I heard you can get microbeads at Michaels and it's basically the same thing.
So What! While looking for caviar nails photos I found these done with real sprinkles... omggg!

So What! I'll leave you with some totally adorable nautical nails for Independence day. Red, White + Blue! PS the white comes from french manicure nail strips. You can get them at wal-mart (guaranteed to be open 7/4). Painting stripes can be a challenge, and this is super simple!
So What! I fail at life. I didn't link any of these correctly... they are all from pinterest & google images. I'm a bad, blogger. Forgive me, it's a holiday :)
What are you saying So What! to this Independence day?
PS if you follow me on IG, you saw my own attempt at patriotic nails... oh I need to keep working on my nail technique :)
This was my attempt at the 'fireworks' nails with a toothpick and dots:
And this was my attempt at the nautical with a heart look (clearly I didn't use the french manicure strips)
