Indpendence Day NOTD

Julius Levinson: David. What the hell are you doing?
David Levinson: Making a mess.
Julius Levinson: Yes, this I can see.

I'm a big fan of disaster movies, it has to be said. Plonk me in front of a tv and give me some regular guys who turn into McGyver halfway through the movie, end up saving the world from aliens/earthquakes/robots/ice, and I'm happy. 

In honour of the great American holiday that is Independence Day, I was going to go all quirky and do some movie-themed art, but the prospect of drawing Will Smith on my nails didn't appeal to me as much as the prospect of drawing a bald eagle with a cocktail stick did.Here you go:

L-R: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails, Catrice 'Pool Party at Night', Revlon
'Revlon Red', and W7 'Snow White'.
Step One: Pretty Decent...
Step Two: Wobbly, but acceptable in reality.

Step Three: Tackorama! Little finger was horrendously smudged.
If you're celebrating, I hope you have a fantastic day.

Cross-Stitch card I did ages ago. Looks suspiciously French.
Happy Independence Day!
