Sam I am - Uncle, that is

I have the song "Yankee Doodle Dandy" stuck in my head right now.  Oy!

This is my second ever Independence Day koni (short for konadicure).  I hope you like it.  I started with two coats each of OPI DS Fantasy and China Glaze Ruby Pumps.  Both applied excellently, I'm happy to say!

I then added the shooting star design from plate m33 using Konad Special White polish.

Next, I added more stars using two different designs from plate m3 with Konad Special Silver polish.  Got a little carried away here.  :)

And then I painted on white stripes to the Ruby Pumps fingers using a white Stripe Rite polish I got at Sally Beauty Supply.  This was my first time using a Stripe Rite and I was very pleased with how easy it is.  It's basically like normal polish but comes with a really long, skinny brush.  The formula is smooth and almost totally opaque.

You will notice my right hand below.  Mostly I just wanted to reassure my readers that I in fact do have a right hand.  :)

The big white star on my ring finger smudged a little.  I have no idea why, but at least it's not terrible.

Mm mm mm!  Star-spangled goodness on ma hands!

I am in shock about having to get up at 5:30 tomorrow morning for an early work shift.  I haven't been getting up early for quite some time!  *sigh*  My only consolation is that I will have these pretty little fingers to look at.
