Nail Art for Nubs presents Memorial Day Nails
Happy Memorial Day!! This is a special day for me! One of my brothers is active military and fights for us every day! I am so proud of him and all that he does for himself and this great country. He is currently stationed in Florida- which is far, far away from us. While he is out protecting our country, he is missing all of the fun things we do as a family. He misses Christmas, Easter, family camping trips, trips to the beach, birthdays and more. These are just a short list of all of the sacrifices he makes to take care of us.
So, if you know someone that is active military you should thank them and think of them often. They miss their families and their families miss them. They put themselves in harms way every second of the day and ask for very little to nothing in return. There is no price tag on putting your life on the line for others.
For this design, I just did a skittlette. A simple, plain skittlette. Yes, I did say "skittlette". This is different from a skittle in that 2 of the nails in your design are the same. It doesn't have to be 2 next to each other, but at least 2 on the same hand need to be the same.
I actually saw this term coined on ChitChatNails blog here. She defines it as:
"Not quite a full skittles look, a skittlette manicure is one with at least two different accent nails. Pick any formation/order you wish, but for a true skittlette at least two nails need to be the same (the others can all be different) OR two pairs of identical nails and a different nail.For those of you who like math/equations. A skittlette can be any of the following: AABBC, AAABC, AABCD (in any order on your nails so that AAABC=ABCAA=AACBA)"
So, there you have it! The Memorial Day Skittlette! I used only 3 colors for this as (like I said above) I wanted it to be simple and just show the colors of our country. I was going to add art, but I decided against it.

This is a macro of the Jindiependence by Jindie Nails. I loooove this color for these types of holidays. It is perfect with stars, in red white and blue and just about every size and shape of glitter in the color combination aforementioned.
What do you think of this? Did you do a design for this special holiday? I would love to see them if you did! Post them on my Facebook and tag me so I can share as well!!
