4 Simple Nail Art Looks for 4th of July 2016

Some Press Samples Featured**


Hello lovely readers! I am getting to celebrate the 4th of July weekend with family and friends. I have 4 quick and simple looks that will help anyone achieve patriotic nails for the occasion!


Look 1: Red, silver, and blue manicure with white stripe 
For this look, I used Orly Mirrorball (silver holographic), Red Carpet (red with holographic shimmer), and On the Edge (bluish purple creme). I finished this look with a simple white stripe, using striping tape.

Look 2: Red, white, blue, and stars topper manicure
A glittery topper is one of my favorite ways of dressing up my nails for a festive occasion. For this look, I used 1 to 2 layers of 'Murica by Funky Fingers over Bonna Blue by Fresh Paint (pastel blue creme).

Look 3: Red, white, and blue dry brush manicure
For this look, I went for an artsy, yet, tools-free manicure. I started with 2 layers of Chelsea Porcelain** by Londontown Lakur. After removing excess polish from the brush, I randomly brushed over my base using Beau of the City** by Londontown Lakur (royal blue creme) and El Matador by Cult Cosmetics (red creme).

Look 4: Red, silver, and blue textured manicure
For this last look, I used some of my favorite full-coverage glitters in red, silver, and blue. Shown here are Zoya Pixie Dusts Oswin (red), Cosmo (silver), and Noir (blue).
