American Spirit Patriotic Nail Designs
As it’s clear in the fashion world the American flag had involved from the sign of the land of the free to a fashion statement. Walking in the mall you see flashes of red, white, and blue on shirts, jeans, and jackets.
Such patriotic fashion statement has reached nail art enthusiasts and became a huge trend not only on special occasions but for everyday looks as well. Here’s a list showing you 33 ways to get your patriotic nails designed.

Define the edges of square nails in alternating red and blue. Leave the nail beds nude or beige to make the tips stand strong.

Dots make adorable stars too and we love the way they look over dark blue nails. Add red stripes to one more accent nail and leave the rest plain white.
