Happy 4th of July USA! here's a notd

i made three solid attempts at a 4th of July, patrioticy, red, white & blue manicure of some sort. i tried like half a dozen designs using tape, Migi pens, dots and stripes. in various combinations. i'm taking full on treatment, base coat, 2 coats of color and then ruining it with messy nail art. 
they all came off off off! i chose to assert my independence and reach for a soothing minty green:

it's topped with a thin coat of Sally Hansen Prisms in Pure White Opal. 
It adds a very subtle shimmer like the one in Chanel Jade. 

there's a little too much blue in the pics i think. especially the one below. 
just snapping them with my iphone these days. 

do you try and do holiday themed nails? have you had any failed attempts at getting the look you want? what do you do when that happens? 

Happy Independence Day Americans!
