Oh Say, Can You See… How Fab This Mani Is?

Whether you’re headed to a BBQ, a fireworks display in the park, or keeping it easy breezy with your pals, don’t forget about the details this 4th of July. This patriotic manicure is easy enough for anyone to pull off — try it before you head out for a day of festivities!

What You Need


  • Red nail polish
  • Red glitter nail polish
  • Light blue nail polish
  • Silver nail polish
  • Patriotic glitter nail polish
  • Dotting tool


Step One


Paint all your nails, excluding your ring fingers, a pale blue. Dark blue works, too, if that’s your preference. Paint your “party finger” a bright red, and then go over it with some red glitter.


Step Two


Using a dotting tool, apply silver dots on all your blue nails. This will add a little depth and dimension to the finished look.


Step Three


Finally, apply a coat of patriotic glittery polish over each of your nails. We’re using Sinful Colors Star Blast Off, which has circular red and blue dots mixed with white stars. We strategically placed some of the stars on the red nail for added impact.

Seal it with a top coat and you’re ready to party!
