DIY 4th of July nail art ideas
Don’t feel like you have to stick to hand painted nail art either! Some people are amazing artists and have a lot of time on their hands. Other people just want a beautiful design on their nails without spending forever on it. Why waste your 4th of July painting nail art when you could be enjoying it! That’s why nail polish strips/wraps and nail stamping are great alternatives!
Personally, I tend to stick to Color Street nail polish strips. They’re 100% nail polish so they are easy to apply and can be cut/hole punched to get really creative with your own designs. They have many different colors and come out with holiday specific designs throughout the year. With theses I can get a put together professional looking nail design within 10 minutes.
Nail stamping can be another quicker alternative to hand painted nail art. While this method takes longer than using strips/wraps, you can be more creative with all the different plates. Using a clear stamper you can transfer designs to your nail. No more crooked hand painted lines or messy looks! Don’t have any or not what you need, check out these 4th of July stamping plates!
