How To: 4 Fourth of July Nail Ideas!


Happy 4th of July to America! Here are 4 quick and easy (and last minute) ideas for your nails.

M O N E T  
  • Add drops of different colors of polish onto a white painted nails. I used 3.
  • Place a piece of plastic wrap on top.
  • Tap if needed to mix the colors & remove.
  • Add a clear or glittery coat once dried.

S W I R L
  • To see my more in-depth original tutorial on this, click here.
  • Paint a base color. I chose blue.
  • Scrunch up plastic wrap and dip in red polish. 
  • Dab on nails.
  • Repeat with white.
  • Add clear or glitter coat.
F R E N C H
  • Use a clear or white coat as a base.
  • Cut out tape or Post-It notes (the post its don't stick to nails as bad as tape does) in the shape of nail and stick onto nail.
  • Paint around your template.
  • Alternate colors.
  • Remove Post It template and add clear coat.

F I R E W O R K S
  • Every Fourth of July ends with a firework celebration, so here's my much safer version.
  • Paint nails white.
  • Drop 1 drop of red paint onto nail.
  • Drag a toothpick or pin through to create a firework effect.
  • Repeat with blue.
  • Add glitter coat for extra sparkle.
B O N U S 
  • Try your red, white, and blue nails with polka dots, stripes, or ombre.

Enjoy and see y'all Thursday!
