This Rookie Mag 'Fourth of July' manicure is a slightly intricate way to inject some Americana style into one's nails.
Perfectly timed and complete with detailed instructions, this DIY is ideal for July 4th and beyond. Unlike similar nail looks, this manicure actually features no stars and instead focuses on the colors associated with the American flag. Complete with glitter to add some jazz to what might be an otherwise ho-hum look, this is a celebratory and young look sure to please the demographic of Rookie Mag readers.
What makes this tutorial both more interesting and a tad more difficult than others of its kind is the integration of tape to create stripes. The instructions require the use of very thin strips of adhesive to create perfectly straight stripes, making the look even more impressive.
