It’s finally here! The 2012 general election is on Tuesday and whether you are excited or relieved that it is election eve eve it is the perfect excuse to rock some patriotic and/or election nail art.
As usual we’re just bursting with ideas around here so I decided to compile some appropriate (yet easy) nail art into one post. For a slew of ideas (and links to how-tos) check below the jump.
I’d love to know if you plan on doing any election themed nail art or if you find any inspiration from the ideas below!
Most importantly, whatever your political affiliation may be, don’t forget to rock the vote on Tuesday.
For the Trendy Girl: Patriotic Caviar Manicure. We all know that texture is the biggest thing in nail art right now. So why not combine trendy with patriotic? Sounds like the perfect combo to me!
For the Low Maintenance Voter: Patriotic Accent Nail. If you want to show your patriotism but don’t want to or have time to do elaborate nail art take a page from Olympians Allison Schmitt and Elizabeth Beisel and keep it simple by adding a sparkly red accent nail to your sparkly blue manicure.
For the Girl Who Wants to Try Something New: Straw Nail Art. This is a different yet eye catching way to rock red, white and blue. I promise the poll workers will want to know how you did it!
For the Romney Supporter: Romney Campaign Logo Nail Art. If Mitt’s your man this is your nail art! The perfect way to show support for your candidate!
For the Star Lover: Stars & Stripes Manicure. Not much is more patriotic than rocking the American flags on your nails. This is an interpretation of Old Glory that makes it a bit easier to fit on a nail.
For the Idealist: Rock the Vote Manicure. If you’re biggest concern on Tuesday is the percentage of the population that participate the Democratic process this is the manicure for you!
For the DIY’er: DIY Star Glitter Manicure. Have some star glitter? Have red and blue nail polish? Have that DIY spirit? Give this manicure a try.
For the Obama Supporter: Obama Logo and Star Manicure. If you want 4 more years look no further for your election day manicure.
For the Polka Dot Lover: Patriotic Polka Dots. Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Unaffiliated…who doesn’t love polka dots? Polka dots are the least controversial thing on the planet and therefore make the perfect manicure for those who want to stay entirely nonpartisan outside the voting booth. We use secret ballots for a reason!
