Celebrate Independence Day with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri

I'm excited to show a little nail art skittle I did for the Fourth of July using 3 Insta-Dri polishes from Sally Hansen.  I began from index to pinkie using:
Vandal Eyes - a sky/cornflower blue crelly.  Formula super watery and tends to pool towards the cuticles so apply very thinly and wait between coats.
Quick Brick - a reformulation of an earlier shade, this is a truer classic red creme that applies perfectly in two coats.
Tag, Ur It! - a chalk white creme, applied on both my ring and pinkie.  Not the best white I've ever used but not the worst either and needs at least three coats to level out the streaks.

To jazz up my skittle, I dry brushed Quick Brick and Vandal Eyes in opposited directions on my ring finger.  Unfortunately, because of how watery Vandal Eyes is, despite wiping down my paddle, it looked more watermarked over Quick Brick than the intended dry brush effect.  However, I do kinda think it looks a bit like fireworks so I'm not entirely upset with the end result.

For some added patriotism, I applied a blue, silver, and pink (sorry, didn't have a red!) star studs (from Born Pretty Store) on my pinkie.  Had I thought it out, I would've had the dry brush effect coming out of the stars but alas, they were applied and dried first.  Regardless,  I must say I'm impressed with the simplicity of this.

Do you think I did Sally proud?

What will you be wearing on your nails tomorrow to celebrate America's Independence Day?  (Non-Americans, what will you be wearing anyway? :)
