Quick and Easy 4th of July Nail Options

Hey loves! I wanted to give you a quick and easy few options to be a little festive this week with your nails. I am excited about the 4th, we'll be swimming and cooking out with all our best friends. 

Here are 4 different looks for you to try, just different variations of the same style. You could use any color variation, just some ideas :)
Look #1 is using only a dotting tool to put some polka dots on an accent nail. Remember, if you don't have a dotting tool you can use a bobby pin or even a toothpick.
Look #2 is using a dotting tool to make a star or flower design then I added a little red nail jewel to the center of that
Look #3 I added red and blue nail jewels to the silver accent nail
Look #4 is not using any tools at all, just a simple multi color nails 

Here are the polishes I used for these looks:
