Happy July 4th!

Yikes, July 4th really snuck up on me this year for some reason! I’ve been out of my home country a long time, but Happy Birthday America!

I did a quick ridiculously long over-the-top American flag manicure to celebrate (with rhinestones, of course!)


Here are some other July 4th nails I’ve done in the past:


Fireworks on a blue sky with flakies, gold glitter stripes and star confetti.


Super easy and quick- paint some nails white and add red stripes, then paint the rest of the nails blue and add some star decals! You can even use ordinary stickers as decals for one day if they are very thin. Nail decals are usually a bit more rubbery and flexible than regular stickers, though.


Foil stars on a denim blue base with acrylic dome rhinestones.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe July 4th! Don’t do any crazy stuff with fireworks, or you might find yourself with a couple less fingers to paint in the future.  And for those of you with pets- please keep them inside, away from the fireworks. Many pets can be badly scared by the noise and lights and will run far away, trying to escape the source of the noise. So keep your buddies inside in a safe place!

    Love the fireworks nails! Good luck to you in nail school. It sounds challenging but oh so fun.

      Yay- I’m glad you liked them. Nail school is a lot harder than I expected but I’m really enjoying it. I’m having trouble dealing with the acrylic smell, though. Pee- yoou!
