You're going to love them all so much you may have trouble deciding which one to try this year. Have fun!
1. Metallic, American Flag Inspired Nails
Metallics are perfect for capturing the patriotic essence of these nails but they can wreak havoc with your natural nails if you’re not careful.
Using glitter over and over again can cause the nails to become starved of oxygen and this will leave them brittle, dry and damaged. In turn, they may break, bend or even flake. To prevent this, add a base coat before adding glitter, and always give your nails time to breathe between manicures every now and again.
