The New 31DC Day 26 - Inspired by My Country

What country am I from?  USA!  USA!  lol I'm just being silly.  Today's nails are inspired by the USA (for me anyway) however I can't stand the colors red, white, and blue together.  I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I don't like primary colors together and red, white, and blue is just too close.  I don't know, whatever!  With all that rambling done and over with, I can now say that I just wanted to do something different.
I did denim!  Obviously denim is a universal thing, but I feel like the American culture has really embraced denim over the past 75 years (I'm sure even more) with companies like Levi Strauss and Ralph Lauren really perfecting the fits and washes of denim and making it a real staple.
I thought the acid wash look was really cool so I used the brushstroke technique with OPI Dating a Royal, Color Club Hydrangea Kiss, and a no-name Love & Beauty polish in navy.  I put a matte top coat on that and when it was dry I used a white nail art marker to draw stars.  Some of them got a little funky, but we'll just call it "distressed denim".  lol
I'm really in love with these nails.  I didn't want to take it off, but ya know.  The challenge must go on.
