It is so cool to have these nail designs on this Fourth of July. Here, these minimalist stars, simple stripes, Americana-French tips and more from our favorite IG nail artists will make you satisfy:
Design by @misspopnails: “Start with a sheer base and then alternate cyan, red, or gold to the half moon or tips with a diagonal color across. Keep your ring finger as the accent nail with an outlined gold star”.
Design by @palemoonseattle: “Add an unexpected touch with a printed nail wrap in a mahogany wood design. Add blue and white diagonal stripes to the base as a nod to the nation’s colors”.
Design by @pshiiit_polish: “Embrace the negative space trend with this triple dot design (which was actually created for the 2016 Euro Cup, but hey, it works)”.
Design by @palemoonseattle: “Keep the negative look minimal by taping off the base and painting your upper nail in solid royal blue”.
Design by @formulaxnail: “Alternatively, tape off the middle for a clean, bare stripe”.
Design by @nataliepavloskinails: “Another easy negative design is this simple nail design. Paint white stars randomly spread out (or use decals) and finish it off with a clear coat”.
Design by @fleuryrosenails: “For a stronger nail look, fill out the negative space with a deep blue lacquer”.
Design by @nataliepavloskinails: “Use mirrored nail wraps for added shine, then paint a clean coat of blue polish below”.
Design by @jinsoonchoi: “Start with a red base coat and then sprinkle a pinch of glitter to the base of the nail. Finish it off with a clear top coat”.
Design by @flossgloss: “Start with a clear base coat and then add red, white, and blue strips along the curve of your nail’s edge for a patriotic take on the French tip”.
Design by @aliciatnails: “Contrast textures with a navy matte base and stars painted in glittery polish on top”.
Design by @ninanailedit: “Lobster, anyone? Expert tip: Apply petroleum jelly or Elmer’s glue around the nail bed to protect your skin from mistakes”.
