Fourth Of July Nail Art That Puts The Stars In The 'Spangled Banner' (VIDEO)

We get that not everyone is into wearing red, white and blue on Independence Day. (Stores like American Apparel and Urban Outfitters almost had us thinking twice about buying a pair of flag-emblazoned cutoffs.) But if you're searching for a more subtle way to show patriotism, consider Fourth of July nail art.

Our friends over at Look TV sent us this video tutorial of a manicure fit for the 4th of July. Using silver glitter, blue nail polish, red and white nail art pens and painter's tape (the trick to getting crisp and clean lines), you can easily create a stars and stripes nail design.

Check out the video above for the five simple steps to this Fourth of July nail art. We think it'll make for the perfect DIY project with family and friends while you wait for the BBQ. Just be sure to allow your nails enough time to dry before digging in!
