The Fourth of July is almost upon us, and that only means one thing — a sickening abundance of stars and stripes. But just because you aren’t ostentatious about your patriotism doesn’t mean you can’t show off your pride fashionably. Here are four awesome red, white, and blue manicures to spice up your Independence Day:
Though complicated and intricate, this manicure is absolutely adorable. The gradation of the stars is subtle, but really well done, and the stripes are bold and sassy. (Tutorial here)
I really love the overlapping stripes on this one. They make for a unique texture, and kind of remind me of a picnic blanket. Fitting, right? (Tutorial here)
The base of this manicure is so simple, but the pop of silver from the stars completes the picture. The detail on the stars is so perfect, too, which makes this such a fantastic look. (Tutorial here)
I absolutely love how the stripes are in the stars in this manicure — sort of like a simplified version of the American flag or something. Very cute, and the abundance of dark blue instead of red and white makes these nails a little edgier (in my mind, at least). (Tutorial here)
Do you have a favorite stars-and-stripes manicure, Lovelies?
