Patriotic 4th of July Nails
All-American nail art
Bust out your red, white and blue polishes - with some glitter added in for fun - and show your patriotic side with these DIY manicure ideas.
Pick your favorite colors of nail varnish, and buy a striping brush, available at any beauty supply store, and you'll be set. And remember, these designs can be worn all year-round. After all, we live in America, and this would be an appropriate way to show your, ahem, stripes, at an all-American baseball game or just hanging out by the pool.
Opt for a more modern take on 4th of July nails with this festive design. A white opaque base is the perfect backdrop for red and blue speckles.
Sponge red glitter tips over a navy polish. Try China Glaze Love Marilyn in a gradient pattern over China Glaze First Mate. The best part? You'll never notice when this design starts to chip.
This design features different art on each nail, appropriately spelling out USA. Add an American flag to your pinkie and thumbnails, and you'll be set for anything from 4th of July, to Election Day, to an Olympic celebration.
Alternate each nail in red, white or blue, and place polka dots in contrasting colors - red and white on blue, blue and red on white, white and blue on red - at the tips for a trendy take on the holiday.
These preppy stripes are perfect for a day on the ocean, or a 4th of July picnic. Start with a red base and mix and match designs on each nail, alternating stripe directions.
Go for the classic stars and stripes with this nail design. Use a striping brush to create red and white stripes on several of your nails, and complement the look with at least one nail featuring a background of blue polish dotted with white stars.
Start working on this design now, and you'll have it mastered by Independence Day. Nails feature a red base, with one in blue and white stripes, giving both a nautical and 4th of July vibe.
