Next time you get hold of red nail paint, don’t bother with creating straight lines. And if you’re someone like me, you already can’t paint straight lines. But, no worries! You can paint wavy lines like this for the Fourth of July!

If you can’t pick one between a half-moon and a French tip, then it’s okay! Because this two-tone nail design gives you the liberty to have both! You can paint the base of your nail red and the free edge a baby blue. 

19# Red And Blue Flowers

This cute and classy floral look can be achieved by using a dotter tool or even a bobby pin if you don’t have the latter. You have to dip either of the two in your nail polish and put little dots of the color on your nails!

20# Pop Art Nails

Before you argue that Pop art nails were trendy back in the back of 2020, let me tell you that this look can be recreated for the Fourth of July too! There’s a little bit of everything in this look: stars, stripes, gold, polka dots. Apart from nail polishes, you’ll need some patience too though.
