4th of July Nail Art Inspiration and a Free Gift Offer

If you’re looking for red, white and blue 4th of July nail art inspiration, then you’ll want to consider one of these super-cute nail looks from Julep. You can get all of the nail polishes used in these looks for FREE in the Star Spangled 8-Piece Beauty Gift if you join Julep’s beauty box subscription program. Or, if you’re already a subscriber, then use code LETSGET20 to save 20% on any Julep polish or beauty purchase that you make.

To create the easy patriotic 4th of July nail dots (pictured above) first create your base with two coats of the red crème polish, Myriam. Once those coats have dried, use a toothpick or a dotting tool to make dots with the white polish, Brigette. Once your white dots have dried completely, then add additional dots with the peacock blue nail polish from Julep, Paulina. Don’t forget to complete your look with a top coat to extend the life of your new 4th of July nail art look!

If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, then try creating stars and stripes nails. Begin by painting all of your nails with two coats of the red polish, Myriam. Allow to dry completely. Then, on your accent nails, use scotch tape as a guide to paint even stripes of the white polish, Brigette. Once these lines have dried, use a toothpick to draw blue stars on your accent nails with the blue polish, Paulina.

If you’re a master at nail polish and have steady hands, then you may want to try these red, white and blue wave nails for your 4th of July nail art look. Begin by painting half of your nail with Myriam, your red polish, then add on a scalloped edge. Allow to dry, then apply the white scalloped paint layer with Brigette. Once that layer has dried, complete the look with a third scalloped layer of Paulina (blue). Optionally, you can also add a touch a sparkle on top of the blue with Kirby. Be sure to finish your completed 4th of July nail art look with a top coat to make your mani last and shine!
