Nail Art: Simple 4th of July Nails

Simple 4th of July Nails The Daily VarnishI don’t know about y’all but I am so ready for the holiday weekend. Because we went to the beach last week I’m going to be staying in Charlotte for the long weekend. The boy and I are going to take in a baseball game and watch fireworks at my favorite uptown park.

But, I know how hectic things can be leading up to a long, holiday weekend. So, if you don’t have time to do full blown flag nails or one of the gazillion patriotic nail art ideas in my ultimate patriotic nails guide I have got you covered.

This manicure is simple; it involves absolutely no nail art. But, it looks super patriotic and fun. I used the American flag as inspiration.

For the blue nails I used essie Style Cartel and topped that with deborah lippmann Va Va Voom. I kept the red (Color Club Frozen Daiquiri) and white (SinfulColors Snow Me White) nails plain which added some contrast from the blue nails.

If you’re crunched for time (or simply just don’t want to spend a lot of time on your nails…) this manicure will do the trick!

  1. I just thought of something, how would you do your other hand? Would you use the blue on your pinky and go the other way or also do your thumb and index finger? Can you tell that I’m really thinking of doing this as a mani? 🙂
