Does Non-Cheesy Fourth Of July Nail Art Exist? We Think So...

Update: This story was originally published on June 26.
While we're not exactly going to be head-to-toe in stars and stripes this July 4 (we like a little subtlety in our patriotic fashion), we do love a good holiday-themed nail art project. This one in particular set off some fireworks in our hearts — created by Hiroko Fujikawa, owner of MARS the Salon, it's everything we've ever wanted in an Independence Day mani. And those stripes! We're super impressed by her line-making ability.
Luckily, there's a step-by-step tutorial up on POPSUGAR Beauty about how to get this look. All you need is red, white, and blue, some glitter polish, and rhinestones. You can copy elements of it, like just the flag or just the color scheme, or you could rock the entire manicure. Either way, you'll have the most festive hands at the barbecue. (POPSUGAR Beauty.)
