This firework nail tutorial is a great way to enjoy a happy Fourth of July this upcoming weekend. If you don't feel like dedicating an entire outfit to the color scheme of red, white and blue this firecracker manicure is a great way to subtly channel some patriotism for your country.
These explosive nails are a simple tutorial enough to do at home with salon-quality results. Begin by applying an opaque white base coat to your fingertips. Add an arc of either a red or blue nail polish color. Then use a toothpick or a thin utensil to run a glittery nail polish shade through the arc in quick brushstroke motions. This will recreate the look of exploding fireworks shooting through the night sky.
