So, this past weekend, it was 4th of July! And for those of you who live in Canada, it was Canada Day for you folks! 4th of July this year was pretty laid back, compared to last years' (in short, my family and I watched a parade on the other side of town, ate at a fancy dining place, and watched Despicable Me 2, view it here).
This year, I woke up to find my brother and my dad watching a sci-fi horror movie, which wasn't the picture I was necessarily thinking to see. We watched it all movie long. During the afternoon, my brother and I sat at home, lazy and hot. The temperature was at a boiling 81 degrees Fahrenheit, the highest it has been in years! While my dad went to go and buy ice cream from the store because of the hot weather, I decided to cool off in my room and try Brooke's nail tutorial.
Let say this straight: I never wear makeup outside of artistic performances, meaning musical and theater performances are the only times I willingly will wear makeup. I did not have much knowledge about how to apply it (thus the reason I had to ask my mom to tell me in a five-minute speech how to apply makeup). So, when I tried to apply nail polish to my fingernails, it came out really messy:
When I was done with experimenting, there was still lots of leftover polish on the piece of tinfoil I used. So instead, I decided to use the remaining polish and cotton swabs to create this pictures:
My "art palette" was messy:
In the evening, my parents decided to take our entire family out to go and see the fireworks! We arrived too early for the show. What did we do thirty minutes prior to the event? We stayed in the car, as my brother and I taught our parents how to take selfies on their phones.
(If you here someone talking in another language in the background, that's just my mom talking in Filipino about how she wished the fireworks made shapes.)
