The Land of the Free, U.S. of A, ‘Murica, whatever you like to call it; her birthday is coming up…and if you’re like us, you can’t wait to party like its 1776. Whether you’re grilling out in the backyard or watching fireworks on the beach, there’s no wrong way to celebrate July 4th. And with that in mind, we thought we’d take the fiesta to our fingertips and dedicate this week’s Manicure Monday to our favorite summer holiday. After foraging the web for the most adorbs DIY 4th of July nail ideas, we just couldn’t get enough of these eight awesome looks. So break out those red, white, and blue polishes; crank up the patriotic tunes (yes, “Party in the USA” definitely counts), and get to painting!

Add some interest to a traditional stars-and-stripes manicure with a glittery gold accent nail, a la @polishcandies. Or, go a more non-traditional route with this minimal look from @chelseaqueen. Trade out her fuschia color for a brighter red, and you’ve got a simple and gorgeous Independence day look. @pshiiit_polish nails it (no pun intended) by covering all the Americana bases with this adorable look. Red, white, blue, stars, stripes, dots – you name it, it’s there. Check out the tutorial here! Can’t get enough of this fun look from @blognailedit. Need the tutorial? Check it out here. Let’s be honest, what would the 4th be without the hot dogs and hamburgers? Pay homage to the classic grub with these awesome nails from @lifeisbetterpolished. Check out this super cute nautical look from @alllacqueredup – tutorial here! Bleed red, white, and blue? Then @hannahroxit has the perfect look for you, and shows you how to get it with her video tutorial here! And of course, what’s a mani roundup without an awesome tutorial from @missladyfinger?
