There’s nothing more patriotic than rocking red, white and blue for the Fourth of July. Why not get a little crazy and sport some patriotic fireworks on your nails?
Fourth of July fireworks nail design
You’ll need an opaque white polish (we used Orly’s White Tips), a gold glitter polish like Julep’s Oscar, and red and blue nail art striping tape.
1. Base coat
Start with a white base coat. You may need two coats to make sure it’s nice and opaque.
2. Cut the tape
Cut four small pieces of the blue striping tape and three pieces of red. Make sure they’re big enough to make an impact, but small enough that they don’t cover the entire width of the nail.
3. Place strips on nails
Start by making a cross on the nail with two pieces of the striping tape you just cut. Make another cross over that, rotating it so that it fills in the white space of the first cross. Place the red tape over the blue the same way. (We left out one of the red pieces to give it some personality so it’s not a perfect burst.)
4. Glitter top coat
Paint on some glitter polish as your top coat. It makes the firework look a bit more magical!
