Obviously you wouldn’t show up at a Fourth of July backyard BBQ or a weekend pool party without an on-point proud American mani. With Dermelect’s help, you can use their ME collection to step up your game and rock the coolest stars and stripes look we’ve seen yet.

Grab Red-licious, Opulence, Phenom, and High-Maintenance, follow these instructions, and you’ll be ready for America’s birthday, baby.

(From Left to Right)

Nail Design #1

What You Need: Opulence, Phenom, Red-licious, High-Maintenance, thin striper/detail brush, small star-shaped stickers, clear polish, silver craft glitter.

  • Start off with Opulence to paint entire nail white and let completely dry.
  • Use three small star-shaped stickers and randomly place across the nail.
  • Immediately follow with Phenom lacquer to paint entire nail blue and quickly peel off stars while nail is still wet.
  • Use a thin striper brush to paint red stripes (Red-licious) inside the stars.
  • Mix in silver craft glitter with a clear polish and use thin, detail brush to outline stars.
  • Top off with high-maintenance instant nail thickener top coat for extra shine.

Nail Design #2

What You Need: Opulence, Phenom, Red-licious, High-Maintenance, makeup sponge.

  • Start off with Opulence to paint entire nail white and let completely dry.
  • Apply Red-licious and Phenom together directly to a makeup sponge, leaving a bit of room in the middle of the sponge in order to keep the white on the nail exposed.
  • Using the sponge, stamp down twice directly onto the white nail.
  • Repeat stamping process twice.
  • Top off with high-maintenance instant nail thickener top coat for extra shine.

Nail Design #3

What You Need: Opulence, Phenom, Red-licious, High-Maintenance, small star-shaped stickers, clear polish, silver craft glitter, small detail brush.

  • Start off with opulence to paint entire nail white and let completely dry.
  • Place one star-shaped sticker onto the middle of the nail.
  • Use Phenom to paint half of the nail, and Red-licious to paint the other half.
  • Dab clear polish into silver craft glitter to create a mixture.
  • Remove sticker and fill in using silver glitter/clear polish mixture with a small detail brush.
  • Top off with High-Maintenance instant nail thickener top coat for extra shine.

Nail Design #4

What You Need: Opulence, Phenom, Red-licious, High-Maintenance, glass of room temperature water, toothpicks, small detail brush, acetone.

  • Start off with Opulence to paint entire nail white and let completely dry.
  • Drop in small bits of all three lacquers (Phenom, Opulence, Red-licious) into a glass of room temperature water in this order.
  • Use a toothpick to create a marbling effect in the water by dragging the toothpick across.
  • Dip the nail into the water and use toothpick to clean extra polish before removing the nail from the water glass.
  • Remove the nail and clean cuticle area using acetone and small brush.
  • Top off with High-Maintenance instant nail thickener top coat for extra shine.
