Today I have 5 fairly easy manicures for July 4th. I hope this gives you some inspiration! Click through after the graphic for all 5 manicures and a short explanation of how I created them! Don’t forget to pin them if you like them!
First up is a saran wrap manicure with Revlon Midnight (blue), Revlon Persuade (red), and Revlon Bare Bones (cream). I started off with a base of Midnight on my pointer finger and Persuade on my other fingers. I then dipped saran wrap in Bare Bones and blotted it on my fingers. I went back over again with the correct colors for a bit more depth. I wanted it to look like a faded flag, almost.
Next is a fan brush manicure. I started off with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Then dipping my fan brush into first SC Pur Rouge (red), I applied thin brush strokes over each nail. I then repeated the process with SC Burning Bright (blue).
Next is a simple stripe manicure. I started off with a base of OPI Alpine Snow on all fingers but my pointer finger, which I used 2 coats of OPI Russian Navy Suede on. Then using a long skinny brush, I dipped it in OPI Over and Over A-Gwen and freehanded stripes down each nail. Lastly, I applied 3 star studs on my pointer finger.
Next up is a manicure that was inspired by this cake (found via CakeWrecks Sunday Sweets). I started off with painting two coats of Verity Hot Baby Blue on my pointer and pinky fingers. On my middle and ring fingers, I started with two coats of Jessica Sharktooth. Then using Sephora by OPI High Maintenance, I swirled it over Sharktooth. Lastly, I applied random blue dots with Hot Baby Blue.
Lastly is a sparkly re-creation of my current pedicure. The idea was suggested to me via a blogger friend (Becky at Naked Without Polish). I started off with two coats of Color Club Beyond, then I layered Finger Paints Peacock Portrait and OPI Minnie Style over the top of it. I was trying to go for fireworks in the dark sky.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these manicures. Which is your favorite? If you recreate any of them for your own July 4th manicure, please let me know by tagging me on instagram or twitter, or by posting to my Facebook page!
