    I use the Neutrogena Dry Touch sunblock too….love it. Not sticky at all!

    Have you decided on your 4th of July mani yet? Anxious to see it!!! I just got Julep “America” in the mail and it is so cute. Thinking of layering it over navy blue OPI on my toes and doing red mani with accent nail of “America”. The important stuff in life……. 🙂
