Since nails have become a part of our look, it has also become a big part of our celebrations. New Year? We’ve got the nail art that’s perfect for that. Valentine’s Day? Our nails will complement our whole look. Halloween? Nothing’s scarier than an unadorned nail. Christmas? The holidays are better when we get the nails to match the family sweaters. Even simple date nights, anniversaries, parties, weddings and proms are not complete without nails painted or designed.

But there is another celebration that is coming right up. It’s not really a worldwide holiday but it’s definitely known globally and that a lot of people are celebrating. What is it? It’s none other than the independence day of US; the fourth of July. And of course, the best way to help celebrate is to have the whole patriotic vibe. So, getting a nail art design specifically for this event is a great way to be in the moment.

Since it’s the fourth of July, our designs are mostly based around the flag of the US. There are the most notable symbol of all: the stars and the stripes. But along with the flag, we would also be witnessing a lot of fireworks inspired nail art designs.
