Happy 4th of July/Happy Birthday Captain America!

Happy birthday Captain America!!! And happy 4th of July!!  Today's post is two parts since I have very different designs on my left and right hands.  My left hand has a very patriotic Captain America themed manicure!

I think most people know Captain America's story, so I'll be quick.  Steve Rogers wanted to fight in WWII, but was too young.  He lied about his age to get into the army even though he was skinny, weak, asthmatic, and had suffered from polio.  He became the subject of a "super soldier" experiment where he was injected with super soldier serum and became the Captain America we all know and love!

My thumb is his shield, my index finger is his military uniform (complete with eagles and "US"s), my middle finger is part of his uniform, my ring finger is the hero himself, and my pinkie is the "A" on his helmet.

These are so fun and so perfect for the 4th of July!  I also have a design on my right hand that took considerably less skill.

This is just a fun fanbrush manicure I did using red white and blue polish.  I topped it off with glitter for a fun festive look!

I hope all my American readers have a happy and safe 4th of July!
