If you find yourself wanting to stand out at a Fourth of July party this upcoming summer, this list will be perfect for you. These manicures are a great way to spice up a patriotic outfit, especially if you’re doing something subtle this year. Some of these manicures are super loud whereas others are subtle in the best possible way. Below is a list of eleven different Fourth of July manicure ideas.
1. White & Confetti
These are basically a reverse French tip. This manicure manages to recreate the beauty of fireworks. A chic, white base makes the glitter in this manicure really stand out.
2. Red, White & Blue Watercolor
These are incredibly unique. If you’re looking for something that will incorporate red, white and blue but will also be different from the typical nails, this manicure is for you. The little specks of gold in the center of each nail makes this look like a work of art, not just a manicure.
3. Red & Blue French Tip
This style is simple and elegant. It’s fantastic if you’re celebrating in a more formal way. It’s even just nice if you’re looking for a normal manicure. This style would be perfect if you’re someone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of money on nails you’ll have to get rid of after the holiday. These will last beyond the Fourth of July.
4. Fully Patriotic
These are the over-the-top patriotic nails of your dreams. Between the flag, the diamonds, and the stars, this design has it all. It all comes together to make the most extravagant manicure for The Fourth of July.
5. Marble Nails
These nails are artsy and over the top in the best possible way. This manicure is meant for people with a rocker, edgy attitude that want to pay homage to the holiday in their own way. It will look fantastic on natural nails and on fake nails.
6. Glitter Tips
Take your French tips further by swapping out a white paint to red, white and blue glitter. These tips are anything but boring. You can leave the rest of your nail nude like below or be daring and add a pop of color for the base.
7. Red, White & Blue Shimmery
Although these nails are the basic holiday colors putting them on long, luxurious fake nails make them head turning. This manicure is for the people who aren’t afraid to be the center of attention and to be daring with their style. Also having the one white nail matte while the others are shimmers make a world of difference.
8. Patriotic French Tips
This manicure is a delightful twist on the typical french tip. These are nails that you can have done at the salon although they are simple enough to where you could recreate them yourself. These nails are perfect because they’re patriotic without being too daring.
9. Glitter Statement Nails
These are also nails that are somewhat simple, but instead of having your nails all different colors, you can commit to one color. Pick a nice matte or simple shimmery color. From there, you can pick one or two nails that you want to be turned into a red, white or blue disco ball. Very glamorous.
10. Vintage Patriotic
These are great nails if you want to be patriotic in a slightly more unique way. These colors are a great throwback to the forties and fifties. This manicure is very pin-up inspired, and they will look great on real or fake nails.
This manicure is perfect if you want something bold but subtle enough to blend into the rest of your summer outfits once the holiday is over. If you’re also worried about making the perfect star on your manicure, consider only drawing half stars like below. That way everyone will know what design you’re going for without having the dress of drawing a star.
