1. Classic Stripes and Stars
There’s no better way to show allegiance to the flag than to flaunt it. This awesome stripes and stars design do just that! What do I like about this one? The matte polish looks elegant!
2. Confetti and Fireworks
4th of July is a celebration after all. And must I say, it’s one of the best holiday celebrations I always have every year. And you know my fave part of 4th of July? The fireworks! If you love it like I do, try this nail art design.
3. Dots and Lines
Looking at it, it does look like intricate work. But hey, 4th of July only comes once a year so there’s no excuse why you can’t give your A+ effort in doing your nails right? But since this nail design requires precision, asking a friend’s assistance should prove helpful.
4. Accent Stars
If you’re into long nails, then this is the 4th of July nail design you can try! The longer the nail, the more canvas you can work with. Go for stripes and some accent gold stars to add dimension to your nail art.
5. Unique Flag Design On Every Finger
When it comes to 4th of July nail designs, the American flag is always a popular design inspiration. But with this one, each nail features a different feature of the flag, which makes it all unique.
6. Metallic Flag
For some reason, when I see this 4th of July nail art, I’m reminded of Wonder Woman–which is an awesome superhero by the way. Anyway, this metallic take on the American flag is another cool design. If you want to achieve those precise straight lines, tape will be your best friend!
7. Drip Flag Design
Here’s another take on the flag design. Instead of creating precise lines, used the drip technique to give it a more fluid look. This is actually one of my fave 4th of July nail designs in this list. I like its unusual but fresh on the eyes design!
8. Glittered Flag
Glitter nails are always glam and fab…but this glitterfied American flag takes glitter nail art to a whole new level! I like how the pixie dust sparkles. Plus, the combination of the colors is a real winner!
9. Stars and Diamonds
Now this one is for the ladies out there who like to keep it cute. This nail design veers away from the usual red, navy blue, and white as it opted for a bright blue shade…which isn’t bad at all. Using those star and diamond stickers make this design more fun!
10. Fun Classic
4th of July nail art designs don’t have to be super glamorous. Here’s a simple yet fun take on the classic flag theme, using stars, stripes, as well as blue and red polka dots.
If your makeup table doesn’t look like this, it could be time to re-organize ladies. What do you think?
11. Patriotic Polka Dots
4th of July is a day of festivities and celebration. I included this nail art design here because it reminds me of hanging banderitas or party buntings. And of course, the polka dots really add to the cuteness of this nail design!
You can give your nails more depth by making it 3D! Go full-on glamorous with your nails with red, blue, and pearly white caviar for nails. With these nails, you’ll be ready to hit the town for any Independence Day after party!
13. Go Nautical
Nautical colors and 4th of July colors are the same, which is why some women opt to wear nautical designed nails on the 4th of July. One of those women is yours truly! I’m in love with anything nautical, stripes, anchors–you name it! This nail design is definitely on my list.
14. U.S.A. Love
There’s no better way to profess your love for your dear country than Independence Day, right? So if you watch to ditch the star-spangled banner designs, go for the bold U.S.A. on your fingernails!
15. Heart and Polkas
Don’t like stars that much? You can always show your love for your country with a heart! This design is really cute with the mixture of polka dots, silver glitters, and a heart sticker on top of the red and white stripes. A very good combo and an easy one to do too!
Something about this 4th of July nail design that makes me feel hungry. I think it could be the marble cakes my mom used to make us. But anyway, this marbled nail polish is absolutely beautiful! Truly a work of art! You can see the flawless execution on this one.
17. Watercolor Sparkle
This watercolor inspired nail design is my top 1! I like everything about it–from the color combination to the execution! Since I love watercolor, this design is really close to my heart. But most of all, putting in the effort for this one is surely worth the final result…just look at that piece of work!
18. 4-Way 4th of July Nails
Independence Day is about freedom and with this 4-way nail art design, you can also exercise your freedom to choose your design. Paint your middle finger blue and the rest with red and white stripes. Now for the middle finger, you can go with polka dots, stars, a star sticker, or nail sparkles–your choice.
19. Chunky Glitter Flag
Show your love for your country with this 4th of July nail art design using chunky nail glitters. You’re going to make the flag from scratch and the video above will teach you how to make a glitterfied U.S.A. flag!
20. Wavy Stripes
Beautiful. Exquisite. Tantalizing. I can’t seem to get my eyes off of those wavy stripes. It looks hypnotic, doesn’t it? I really like this 4th of July nail design. But I think I’ll change the sparkles on top of the blue polish with silver stars instead!
21. Diamond Pattern
This is one of the most unique 4th of July nail designs I’ve seen. It looks like a lot of time and effort was put into making it, but don’t worry, you can do it too! You will need the help of a nail stripping tape to create the checkered diamond pattern. And then once you made the diamonds, you can freely design inside it. What I really like about this is that it sort of looks like a quilt…and I love DIY quilts!
