We love a neutral oval nail with a cute accent. This mani by @nails_by_ned lets the stars be the focal point. Recreate this look using a fine brush (just wait for the base coat to totally dry) or go the easy route with starry stickers.@nails_by_ned

Here’s a funky French manicure that’s perfect for the whole summer. Blue and red colored tips add a subtle nod to the Fourth of July, and polka dots (which are so easy to make using a dotting tool) add some flair.Anna Efetova/Moment/Getty Images
It doesn’t get more patriotic than these flag-themed nails. To keep the manicure from looking busy or overwhelming, nail art on just two fingers is a good idea. Try flag press-on nails if this seems above your skill set.Shutterstock
Not feeling the traditional patriotic shades? Give a nod to the holiday with slightly softer colors like cornflower blue, a reddish coral, and a lavender instead of white.Shutterstock

These fireworks-inspired nails are lit. To recreate the look, use a neutral base, and when it dries, layer as much chunky glitter as you want. Jin Soon has a fun daisy-shaped confetti polish that looks like bursting fireworks.mikroman6/Moment/Getty Images
