Nail Art: Fourth of July Manicure Ideas!

Fourth of July Manicure IdeasIt doesn’t matter how old I get I still get excited about Independence Day. What’s not to love about fireworks, barbecues, pool parties and baseball!? Throw in a whole lot of red, white and blue and it sounds like the perfect day to me.

The Fourth of July is the only holiday that, in my opinion, it’s completely ok to go over the top crazy with the theme. This of course extends to nails.

So even if you’re not planning on rocking an outfit with red, white, blue, stars and stripes you can make a statement with your nails.

Below the jump there are a slew of manicure ideas. There are a few new manicures that I did along with thumbnails and links to the massive amount of patriotic nail art we’ve posted on this blog over the years.

Patriotic Polka Dot Tips: Everyone knows I love polka dots. A good while ago I did a polka dot tips manicure and it was adorable. So it only made sense to try it out with red, white and blue! I love how this turned out. It’s cute. It’s simple. It’s festive. Polishes used: Ulta Snow White, L’Oreal Jet Set to Paris, wet n wild Everybody Loves Redmond

Red, White and Blue Scalloped tips: I love this idea because it involves absolutely no special nail art tools. For a complete tutorial on how to do a scalloped manicure check out this post. I used a metallic silver base then added the white, red, white then blue scallops. I think it looks a bit retro. Polishes used: Sally Hansen Diamond & Rubies, Essie No Place Like Chrome, Ulta Snow White, L’Oreal Jet Set to Paris

United States of Glitter: Ok, it’s a bit of a stretch to call this nail art, but I think this is my favorite! I’ve become a bit obsessed with NCLA United States of Glitter. There’s nothing NOT to love about red, silver and blue glitter nail polish! So the idea behind this manicure was to just have the glitter accent nail and have the other nails match the red and blue glitter. I really loved the way this manicure turned out. It’s simple but still very holiday appropriate. Polishes used: NCLA United States of Glitter, OPI Perfectly Red, L’Oreal Jet Set to Paris, Ulta Sow White
