Canada Day

Don't you worry, I will show you the rest of the amazing summer collection by The Nail Junkie later this week. But today I pay special respect to all my Canadian friends! In honor of the National Day of Canada That is celebrated on July 1st, I would like to show you my red and white mani. I am sorry I can't draw any decent maple leaf, and trust me - I did try. But I really wanted to participate in my blogger friends Canada Day Mani so I hope you can forgive me for the leaf...
Even though it has no leaves in it, this mani was still much harder then I expected. I started with a surprisingly beautiful red by Revlon Top Speed - Fire (number 510). I don't know, I never thought much of Revlon Polishes, but I admit there are some real good ones - just like Fire. It was super easy to apply, it dried in seconds and was quite opaque in just one coat. Out of the habit only two layers were used.
The white is Milani - White on the spot, that is another one coater. I used my dotting tool but I think I should have used something a lot thinner. I don't like the huge blob-like drops :-(
I ended this mani with a coat of my top coat (a local brand called Life).
Do make sure you check all the other great manis' in this collaboration for Canada's National Day below!
