Fun Fourth of July Manicure

Show your love for the US of A tomorrow by copying this manicure created by my crafty sister Sam:

Start by applying a base coat like Essie All In One Base, $9.50 and painting all but your ring fingers in two coats of a deep red hue topped with red glitter polish. Try Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Dragon, $26 and China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Ruby Pumps, $6.50.

Next, paint your ring fingernails with opaque white nail polish (try Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in White On, $2.82).

Use tweezers to place three adhesive rhinestone stars (pick these up at your local craft store like Michaels) in a diagonal line across your white nails. Secure them with a bit of nail glue (try Kiss Maximum Speed Nail Glue, $2.49) for long-lasting hold.

Finish the look by applying a clear top coat to all of your nails. Try China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat, $6.49.

Happy Fourth of July to you all!
