The 4th of July is my favorite time of year to go all out. We vacation at my parents’ summer house and have a 3-day long cookout, so I love having super cute outfits, hairstyles, and nails for the whole event.
I always like to ask for a festive 4th of July manicure at my nail appointment before the holiday.
There’s something so extra about having holiday nails that really adds to an outfit.
However, I have always been surprised by the lack of 4th of July nail inspiration on Pinterest. Compared to other nail trends and holidays, there’s barely any cute 4th of July manicures!
Today I’m sharing my favorite 20+ 4th of July manicures to give you some ideas. These nails are super classy but are still festive.
4th Of July Nails At Home:
I typically see my nail technician before the holiday and ask for a simple design, but last year I wasn’t able to go because of the stay-at-home time period.
Instead, I ordered nails off Etsy and loved them. That time is really what got me into stick on nails and nail stickers!
If you’re not talented and have shaky hands like I do, then I recommend ordering stick on nails on Etsy. These nails are super high quality compared to drugstore brands and will last much longer.
You can also order Patriotic stickers to put over your regular nail polish. I recommend adding a top coat over the sticker to seal it in.
