With national Independence Day only a few weeks away, it's time to start planning your outfit and get ready to look your best in support of your country. Blogger Love Maegan created this simple nail decal tutorial that teaches you how to tie-dye your nails like an expert using the USA's national colors of red, white and blue.

To recreate this tie-dye manicure, begin by applying a base coat of white to freshly trimmed nails. The white base coat should cover roughly half of your nail. Then, apply your second color, either blue or red, in a stripe on top of the white. Follow with a third stripe of your last color at the end of the nail. Remember to work quickly so the polishes stay relatively wet. Then, grab a toothpick and drag it upwards from the white color through to the last color. Repeat several times for an effortless tie-dye look.
