Patriotic Mani Using Pure Ice: Crimson, Flash, French Kiss

 Hi Monkeys! I have a patriotic mani I did for you today using Pure Ice polishes. It's Olympic time so I thought this was quite appropriate!
This was the final look but I started with a coat of white polish followed by a coat each of Crimson (a shimmery medium red), French Kiss (the perfect American Blue) then last I added Pure Ice's white crackle: Flash as stripes.. then I realized I did it backwards as a flag but yet it's right if it's facing me... I love this mani and am sure to rock it as a full mani in the near future for the U.S. women's soccer team. I stamped the stars using Cheeky CH 4 from their first series. I didn't use tape for this mani, I just winged it and I must say, not too shabby if I do say so myself :) 
As far as formula with these polishes, they were fantastic, pictured is one coat over white and dry time was quick. I also like the fact that the crackle still cracked even though I had a coat of SV over the blue side so I could stamp faster; not all crackles are created the same :) Overall a fun mani and a great way to show support for the games!
