Gallery: Your Fourth of July Beauty Guide


By semick

This Fourth of July, you’ll no doubt want blingy red, white, and blue tips to go along with your floppy hat and raspberry margarita. Get a few design ideas in our very patriotic gallery – and then scroll through below to check out some of the glitter polishes, flag-themed products, and other beauty musts to carry out your look!

  • These four shades from the Essie Summer 2015 collection are your classic red, white, and blues – but with a Hamptons-esque spin. Private Weekend is a sparkling crisp white, Sunset Sneaks is an energetic crimson, Saltwater Happy is a sugary Atlantic blue, and Pret-a-Surfer is ritzy marine blue.

  • Define your eyes and add a subtle spark of blue with Kevyn Aucoin The Eye Pencil Primatif in Defining Navy (available at Barney’s).

  • Adorn your fingertips with stars and stripes with ImPress Accent Press-On Manicure and The Collection Nails by KISS (available at Walgreens). Simply peel off and press on with no dry time and no mess for an all-American manicure in minutes!

  • Add a bold red pout to your look with Susan Posnick COLORESSENTIALS Lipstick in Tokyo, Paris or Milan. It’s even formulated with olive oil, minerals and Vitamins A and E to keep lips moisturized with rich color all day long.

  • These three NCLA Bon Voyage polishes have the cookies and cream look that pairs perfectly with your sweet beach day snacks! Try either a red, glitzy gold, or milky white base. Or if you need to dress your digits even faster, try out NCLA Nail Wraps in Blue Jean Baby and Star Spangled.

  • Pure Ice has a cute collection we can’t wait to try! Poppin’ Bottles (pictured fourth) is a silver and gold sparkle shimmer; Freedom (pictured fifth) is a red glitter with blue sparkles and silver stars. The set even includes their Frost Finish Matte Top Coat (and mattified bright colors are hot this year!).

  • Salon Perfect is your got-to for festive glitters! Try stars, microbars, triangles, and other explosive shape mixes! From left to right: Let Freedom Bling, Liberty Bubbles, Pa-tri-otic, Rockets Red Glare, and Spirit Fingers.

  • Saturated red, white and blue are a classic staple, but the SinfulColors Having a Blast also has a glitter-flecked emerald shade (Green Ocean) we’ve got our eyes on!

  • Show your American pride with an Italian side! FABY Italian Nail Lacquer in red, white and blue shades are the perfect accessory.

  • It wouldn’t be a holiday without a fun, chunky glitter from KBShimmer! Try Wave The Flag for your pop of red, white, and blue (the glitters are round, hexagonal, and stars). Then accent with a shiny silver dose of Alloy Matey!
