Red White and Blue Nails For the Fourth of July

Red White and Blue Nails. The Fourth of July is the time to celebrate America’s independence with fireworks and barbecues. But to really show off your American pride, you need to sport patriotic nail art as well!

Red white and blue nails are the chicest way to accessorize your digits this summer. These sassy looks will go with just about any outfit and are sure to turn heads.[1]

Coral Cuties

While red and blue are staples of the fash pack, there are many other colors that make for some sexy nail combinations. In particular, if you have pale skin and are in the market for a new set of digits, there are some serious shades to go for. So, the next time you’re tinkering with your fingernails, look no further than these top-of-the-line beauties. The best part? They are easy to apply and look sexy no matter what you’re wearing! You will be a happy sexy fash packer in no time! From bold to subtle, a few coats of the right shade are all it takes.[2]

Bronze With Stars

The 4th of July is a patriotic holiday and one of the best ways to show your patriotic spirit is by rocking red white and blue nails. It’s a beautiful color combination and is perfect for any summer nail look.

There are a lot of red, white and blue designs to choose from but here we’re going to talk specifically about 2.[3]

Bronze With Stars

If you love the idea of wearing a full set of patriotic nails but don’t want it to be too over-the-top then this is the nail design for you. It combines the traditional stars and stripes with a more modern take on the look using negative space.

This is a great design to wear on your ring finger and will definitely show off your patriotism without being too over-the-top![4]

It’s easy to create this look using striping tape and a little bit of blue paint. You can also use a sponge to create the ombre effect, if you prefer.

You could even add a small amount of confetti to your mani for extra fun and flair!

The Bronze Star is a military decoration that can be awarded to members of the United States Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. The device was first authorized on February 4, 1944 and can be awarded for either meritorious service or combat actions.[5]

Patriotic Love

Whether you’re a diehard nail artist or just starting out, there are a lot of patriotic designs out there that look great for the Fourth of July. You don’t have to go overboard, though; a simple red white and blue design is a perfect way to celebrate the country we love.

Patriotic nail art is easy enough to create that anyone can do it. You can use stencils, decals, and gem-stars to bring your nail ideas to life.[6]

If you’re a beginner, it’s probably best to stick with simpler designs that require fewer steps. If you’re more advanced, however, there are a lot of nail designs that are super sassy and fabulous — even when the theme is patriotic.

The American flag is such a popular pattern for the Fourth of July, but there are plenty of other options to try. For example, you can make the classic stars and stripes pattern on your nails more subtle by leaving out the stars completely or replacing them with white dots.

Or, you can do a striped design with a subtle ombre effect. To achieve this look, start with a white base coat and then flick a red nail pen across the surface of your nails. Then, you can stick blue star decals or transfers over top to complete the look.

No matter what your style is, you can easily customize these designs to fit your personal preferences. And, you can do them in a variety of colors! If you’re looking for a little extra flair, try adding a few sparkly fireworks or a firework decal to your design.[7]

Negative Space Stars

Negative space nails are all the rage these days, and it’s easy to see why. Unlike your average mani, these futuristic beauties aren’t covered in layers of paint, leaving you with a smooth finish that looks just as good as a manicure done by a professional. To get the look, start with a base coat in your desired shade. Next, apply a coat of clear polish. After that, go for a high-gloss topcoat.[8]

The star of this design is a thin stripe of red, but you can opt for a bolder blue or purple hue if you’re looking to really dazzle your friends. It’s also not hard to find a quality topcoat in any shade of the rainbow.

This isn’t to say that these designs are limited to the Fourth of July, of course! They’re also a lot of fun for any time of year. If you’re a nail buff, you’ll have no trouble trying one out yourself.

The most important rule of thumb is to pick a color that will stand the test of time, as your mani will be seeing plenty of traffic come July 4 and beyond.[9]

Minimalist Moment

If you want to be seen but not too much, a set of minimalist blue French tips is a great way to go. This look is easy to replicate at home and looks great with any outfit.

This nail design combines the best of both worlds: A subtle gradient that resembles a sunlit sky on one half and a pop of red on the other. It also makes the most of nude nails, a popular color trend that can help you achieve that sexy look without going overboard.

The most obvious way to create this effect is by using an ombre effect, which essentially consists of painting one nail color over another. Then, draw an eye-catching pattern over the top of the ombre using a nail polish brush or a paint roller.[10]

In fact, this might be the most important part of the entire look – it oozes class and style. It can be a little tricky to achieve, so take your time and be sure to let each layer dry before applying the next.

The best part is that it’s a simple process that anyone can do at home. Just remember to have a good quality nail polish at hand, as you’ll need to use it multiple times to get a flawless finish! If you want to really impress your friends, try using a high-end brand like OPI to complete this look.[11]

Abstract Patriotism

Patriotism is a deep commitment to a country and its citizens. Often it is shown in acts of service such as volunteering in the military or donating to charitable organizations.

It can also be a dedication to a particular culture or way of life. For example, a German patriot may not be proud of what the Nazis did to their Jewish population in the 1930s, but they could still care enough about that nation to stand up against them.[12]

There is a certain tension in the makeup of American patriotism, however, between its universalizing ideals and its particularistic sentiments. This tension is a major force in American politics, and is evident in the current presidential election.

The debate over the moral credentials of patriotism is no longer new; it has long been a lively one in philosophy. Some philosophers have argued that patriotism is incompatible with the Enlightenment ethos of independence of mind and that it is a form of egoism writ large, an exclusive and aggressive concern for one’s country that contributes to international tensions and wars.

But MacIntyre, for instance, argues that a moderate patriotism is not uncritical or unconditional; it is not egocentric in that its adherents will show special concern for their country and compatriots but can also express an interest in human beings in general. This kind of patriotism is compatible with a decent degree of humanitarianism, and it can even be the source of some morally good conduct.[13]

Red White and Blue Nails For the Fourth of July

When it comes to Fourth of July nail designs, there are plenty of options for the patriotic at heart. From stars and stripes to firecracker ice pops and bandana-inspired designs, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect look.

If you’re looking for something a bit more subtle, consider a sheer base coat to give your nails a nude-nail look and then go for a fun patriotic design over top.[14]

Petite Popsicles

The hottest summer days are the perfect time to enjoy a popsicle treat. You can make these in a variety of flavors and colors for a fun treat with the whole family!

For these red white and blue ice cream pops, you’ll need chocolate, coconut oil, and freeze dried strawberries. The coconut oil helps the ice cream stay cool, and the chocolate makes a smooth shell that hardens around the ice cream while it’s in the freezer.

Next, fill a small jar or shallow dish with the melted chocolate and coconut oil. Spin the jar on it’s side to ensure the chocolate covers the entire popsicle.

You can also just use a spoon to dip each popsicle in the chocolate mixture, and then quickly tap off the excess before covering it with your favorite toppings. Sprinkles, flaked coconut, nuts, and candy pieces work well.[15]

Once you’re finished dipping all the popsicles, put them on parchment paper to cool. Then you can pop them in the freezer until you’re ready to eat them!

Gelatin based popsicles are a great way to keep your kids happy on hot summer days. They don’t drip like store-bought popsicles do, they’re mess-free, and the flavors are super yummy!

Baby Blue Stars

The sky is the limit when it comes to fun, festive 4th of July nail art. Here are a few of our favorites to inspire your patriotic self.

The red, white and blue color scheme is always a winner, but this year, go the extra mile with an accent nail and you’ll be the talk of the party.

For the astronomy buff in you, here’s some cool science stuff to ponder: Stars are formed when dust and gas collide. The stars that shine the brightest are known as O-type or blue giants, because they’re hot, bright and big. Some of these stars even spawn nebulae, which glow in the night sky because they emit intense ultraviolet light from their superheated cores.[16]

You might not have heard of them, but there are a few blue stars out there that you should be aware of. For instance, Rigel is one of the brightest O-type stars in the heavens. It’s also the first star to be seen by humans, so it gets a lot of attention from the public.

We can’t wait to see all the 4th of July nail masterpieces you put on display.

The best part is that these ideas are not only easy on the eye, but they can be made to fit your unique style and budget. Let us know which one is your favorite in the comments section below!

Red and Blue French

Red is a color that can be intimidating to some women, but it is one of the most popular colors for nail art. It is a strong, rich color that will draw attention to your nails and accentuate your chosen nail shape and length.

Blue is also a common color for nail polish, and it can be used in a variety of ways to create different looks. It can be used to create a feminine look, or it can be paired with other colors for a more masculine look.

You can also add a touch of sparkle to your nails by adding glitter. This is a fun and easy way to dress up your French manicure, and it will make your nails look extra festive for the holidays.[17]

If you want to give your nail design a more subtle feel, try painting your tips with soft pink. This is a flattering color for svelte women who are comfortable with their appearance and don’t want to be overly girly.

The dark reds and purples that are often associated with the holiday season can be a little too intense for some people, but they are still a great option to consider for your next manicure. These darker shades aren’t too bold, so they will still be a great choice for winter and will easily go with all your cold weather outfits.

Floral Fireworks

Flowers aren’t just for spring, they’re also a fun way to add patriotic flair to your manicure. Paint them in red and blue to match the Fourth of July theme, or use stickers or stamps for a dazzling floral design.

This easy nail art uses shimmery polishes and stars to create a glittering effect. Start with a light rosy red on your pinkie, then switch to darker shades as you work your way up your ring finger and thumbs.

These ombre nails are the perfect way to show your love of all things 4th of July. First, a clear shimmery base is applied to every nail except for one accent nail on each hand. Then paint the accent nail in a blue that’s reminiscent of a fireworks display.[18]

Then, draw a few straight and squiggly lines of the contrasting colors to complete this fun look. Finish with a high-shine top coat and you’re ready for the fireworks!

These festive red white and blue nail designs are sure to get the party started. Whether you’re celebrating a big barbecue or spending the day at the beach, these patriotic looks will make your holiday even more memorable!

Slanted French

Slanted French nails are the nail trend of the moment, and they look great paired with rainbow colors. The best way to get the look is to use a liner tool and paint different colors on each fingernail. This is a fun and easy way to make your nails stand out from the crowd.

You can also add a touch of glitz to the design with glittery gold polish. It can be applied to the entire nail or just the tips. The effect is elegant and classy, especially if you pair it with a classic white shade.[19]

For a less-busy look, opt for ombre nails instead. The ombre technique blends two different colors, often one light and the other dark. This makes the finished design pretty and subtle, so it’s ideal for weddings and other special occasions.

If you want to be a little more creative, try adorning your tips with micro images like daisies or happy faces. These tiny images will be adorable and bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Aside from being super cute, ombre manicures are a great option for any occasion. They’re also easy to recreate at home.

This red white and blue nails design is perfect for Juneteenth, the African-American holiday that celebrates freedom and independence. It’s a beautiful combination of patriotic colors that will look stunning on your hands.[20]
