Welcome to C to C Friendspirations! We’re really excited to share our favorite summer nail polish, thus far, with you all.

Check out Cristy’s: 

Sinful Colors – Innocent. A lime green polish with a close resemblance to DID IT ON EM from the OPI, Nicki Minaj nail polish line. I typically use this one on my toes, but whenever I feel like being a bit wild, I definitely break out my Innocent polish.

Green Nails

L.A. Girl Disco Brights – Dance Craze. The picture does not do this polish justice, Dance Craze is more of a peach color with strong orange undertones and it is by far my favorite of the four. I’ve been rocking this most of the summer.

Orly – Crush on You. A muted tangerine color. Typically I avoid orange polishes as they remind me of Halloween, but this one hits the spot for me. It’s a muted orange and it has a very fresh and summer feel.

ORLY – Passion Fruit. A bright,  borderline highlighter pink polish. Not only does it dry super fast, but the color just makes me feel happy, not to mention it does not chip easily.

Cat’s faves: 

Sally HansenBarracuda, a beautiful milky blue. Barracuda is definitely one of my top 5 favorites of all time.

Essie’s- In The Cabana,  a deeper teal. I recently purchased this one and I absolutely love it, but be sure to wear a base coat because it stains.

Rimmel London – Mintilicious. The picture does not show its true color, it dries to a gorgeous teal leaning more on the green side.

Orly’s – White Tips. A plain white, nothing super special about it, except for when I wear it I feel crisp, clean, and tan. It would not be summer without a little white polish in the mix.

As you can tell, we’re polar opposites!

Feel free to share your favorite summer colors with us.

Hi there, welcome back to day two of our 2013 4th of July Nails series!

Today’s design is easy and festive.

Here are the products I used:

(Red) China Glaze “Cranberry Splash”

(White) Orly “White Tips”

(Blue) Julep “Ally”

(Glitter) Julep “Fireworks”

Small fine brush

I started off by painting my nails a solid white.

Then I painted on Red and Blue stars.

Finally, I add a tiny bit of glitter on the edges. I could not help myself; “Fireworks” by Julep is like Fourth of July in a bottle! I LOVE it!

Well, here’s the final design. Remember to top it off by using a clear top coat.

Come back tomorrow to see Cristy’s design.

Thank you for your visit,

P.s. the design was inspired by Miss Jen Fabulous, check out her YouTube channel.

Here’s the first in our 2013 4th of July Nails Series.

Products I used:

(Red) China Glaze “Cranberry Splash”

(White) Orly “White Tips”

(Blue) Julep “Ally”

Start by painting your nails with a white base on your four fingers, and blue on the thumb.

Then I added tiny “stars” on my thumb. Be sure the polish is still wet to secure the stars and top it off with a clear coat. Remember you can always pain on little stars or simply use a silver glitter polish to resemble stars.

Next, use painter tape and cut little strips. Add those strips to your four fingers with the white base.

After, add red polish on top of your four nails. Let the polish dry for a few seconds and peel off.

Remember to add a top coat to add shine and here you have the final look!

The design is quick and easy to re-create. Go ahead, rock that flag!

Thanks for your visit, remember to come back tomorrow for a new look.
