Election Day!

Today is Election Day in the United States! I am a strong advocate for voting and I think that every person who is eligible needs to exercise their right and civic duty. Voting is something that people in the U.S. take for granted, and that needs to change. I created a nail art look that will hopefully remind some of you to head out to the polls or official drop sites to make sure your vote counts before 8pm tonight! I dropped off my ballot at an official drop site last night. In Oregon we have vote by mail and it is too late to mail it, so please google your nearest official drop site in your county!

On to the nails! I started with a base color of Color Club Mamba and then added the stripes with stripping paint. I then let everything dry and taped off the lower section and painted the upper section with China Glaze One Track Mind (to be reviewed very soon). I added top coat and waited for that to dry then I painted little stars and top coated again. On my ring finger I just painted Mamba and carefully added the letters with paint from the stripper.







Again, I can't stress enough how important voting is to our country, please do it! If you aren't sure about certain candidates or measures, look them up! Every one should have a website and information about their positions or exactly what the measure would do. I like to look at both sides and both parties just to see the full spectrum of what is being said. I hope this helps remind some of you to vote! 8pm is the deadline tonight, no matter what time zone you live. Thanks for listening to my little lecture, I'll see you back here tomorrow for Work Wear Wednesdays!

  1. I think lots of people take voting for grantes, and I can tell you not only in the US. I love your patriotic mani as well as your message. The colours you used are great, too! That red Color Club looks amazing!
