Fourth of July Nail Designs

The summer is here and before you know it, the 4th of July will be coming up. So when you break out the fireworks, the barbecue, the flags and the beer, why not spruce up your nails with some awesome Fourth of July nail designs! Break out your red, white, and blue polishes, and let's get to work making some holiday nail art!

Want to just get out to the party already without having to spend all the time doing your nails? We don’t blame you at all! Why not try a simple glitter polish with the famous three colors. Just paint it on and you’ll be ready in no time to hit that BBQ! Glitter polishes are extremely simple, but remember that you can have a bit of variety with the size of the glitter itself, and different glitters can spread more evenly or spaces apart.

Just because it’s the 4th of July doesn’t mean you’re relegated to designs that only use stars and stripes. This artist made blue and red dots over a white background using the tip of a bobby pin as a dotting tool (if you don’t want to buy one, it’s a great little tip). You can also experiment with using other things around to house to stamp out little shapes. Feel free to try out other shapes and patterns or change around the colors to fit your likes more. It’s a really simple design that can be a lot of fun to make!

Check out this nail art which used red and blue glitters on the ends of French tips to add a little shine to the end of the fingernail. It almost reminds you of the fireworks! You could even do a mix of red, blue and silver or gold glitters on the tip of each nail, or alternate all the colors.

I really love this set of nails. This design really brings out the Americana and uses some gorgeous glitters to make some beautiful art. With a fully painted red glitter nail, and then blue and white stripes with a super cute little red heart, and then a simple blue glitter French tip with another small heart, all 3 of her designs blend together to make some truly fantastic nail art! Try out your own combinations of the designs and maybe you’ll end up with something great!

The amount of detail in this set of nails is really amazing. They painted on each individual star with really great detail. A way to do this is to paint a white undercoat, and then put star stickers over them once it dries, and paint over it with some blue nail polish. Remove the stickers and viola, you have perfect little stars. This applies to any shape you want as well. Also consider just digging up some stars in a nail art wheel to press straight on.

Well, that should give you a solid foundation for some great ideas for Fourth of July nail designs. Have lots of fun, bring out the Patriot in you, and be careful not to ruin them at the BBQ. Enjoy!
