Flag Accent Nail


This almond shaped set features deeper hues of navy and dark red with a stars and stripes accent nail that’s really eye-catching. The sophisticated color palette adds a touch of elegance to the festive design, but it’s still perfect for casual celebrations as well.


Stars & Stripes On Chrome


The silver chrome base color on this Fourth of July manicure really makes the thin stripes and bold stars pop. Since the chrome is a bit reflective, it catches the light for a slightly shimmery effect.


Summer Strawberries

This fun 4th of July gel nail design by @madnails.ut is just plain adorable. There’s a subtle nod to Independence Day with the color scheme and stars, but also some super fun summer elements like gingham and strawberries, too.

Colorful French Tips


When you want to go for a subtle, yet festive look, this manicure idea with colorful French tips looks fantastic in bright red and blue. Add a simple flag motif to one accent nail for an even more customized Fourth of July look.


Polka-Dotted Patriotism


Who doesn’t love a polka-dotted accent nail? The white base really makes the red, white, and blue dots pop. This is a fabulous look to try this Independence Day if you love matte nails.


Subtle & Sophisticated Stars

Stars and stripes, but make it subtle. This stylish manicure from @sammismanis looks so clean and summery with the negative space, colorful french tip, and bold red star accent.
