Fourth of July nail art often gets a bad rap for being too literal, too kitschy, or too cheesy. However, in recent months, we’ve seen a cool uptick in the ways bloggers, nail artists, and it-girl salons are doing red, white, and blue. “Your 12-year-old niece goes to a barbecue” these nail ideas are not. Instead, here you’ll find fresh new takes on stars and stripes, negative space (yep, the trend is still riding strong), and subtle, summer-y designs that’ll look just as good with a beer and sparkler in hand as they will when you head back to work after the holiday. Click on to find the best nail ideas for the Fourth.
