There are few holidays where it’s totally feasible to coat your nails in red, white and blue polish. In fact, we can only think of two (Bastille Day is coming up, you guys.) Oh, but since the 4th of July is right around the corner, now’s the perfect opportunity to deck out all ten digits (and your toes) with festive nail art in the form of fireworks, the American Flag and if you’re feeling whimsical—hot dogs! I mean, who doesn’t love sinking their teeth into a big, juicy Frank on the Fourth, right?

We turned to Instagram to check out the most popular 4th of July nail art looks this year (sadly, no hot dogs), and we were, at first, overwhelmed by all the crazy-cool and super creative designs. However, now we’re totally inspired to book an appointment at one of NYC’s best nail salons and ask the talented technicians to try and recreate these ‘Murica manis. So get in the spirt and make our nation proud by rocking your patriotic nails all weekend.
