The same way that heart-shaped chocolates feel less cheesy after Valentine's Day, stars have a way of trending after Fourth of July weekend has passed. A star-printed manicure reads as festive or patriotic when sported at the beginning of the summer, but actually becomes fresh and cool by the end of it — in this case, peaking in mid-September on the streets of New York City.
Whether you go for a glossy jet-black base, inspired by the Rebecca Minkoff runway at this season's NYFW, or bright-teal acrylic tips (concept courtesy of Lizzo), scroll through for the most popular star-print designs. Not necessarily Independence Day-oriented, just minimalist chic — they'll have even the most nail art-averse reaching for a striping brush or stickers this fall.
