The Best Red, White, and Blue Nail Polish for July 4th

Mix and match them for your best spirit fingers.


Dior Nail Lacquer in Pandore


This super shiny, luxe polish gives an almost gel-like finish. The red hue is flashy and vibrant—just want you want when celebrating with fireworks—and really great on all skin tones.

To buy: $27;

Essie Nail Polish in Really Red


This polish is just as the name suggests—really red! The hue is more of a classic red with blue undertones, which is especially flattering for those with more fair skin tones.

To buy: $9;

Floss Gloss in Mrs. Tony Montana


This opaque white polish only needs two coats—max—for full coverage. If you're using it all over, remember that white or creamy colored polishes take a little longer to dry.

To buy: $8;

CND Vinylux Weekly Polish in Cream Puff


While a white manicure is clean and looks put together, there’s nothing more obvious than when it starts to chip. That’s why we love this formula that, when paired with the Vinylux Weekly Top Coat ($10.50;, lasts at least a week—and usually longer.

To buy: $10.50;

Jin Soon Nail Polish in Blue Iris


Not quite navy, yet not quite cobalt, this blue is the perfect not-too-bright, not-too-dark shade for painting all ten nails or to use as an accent color. We love the idea of a white nail with a blue stripe or a star.

To buy: $18;

Deborah Lippmann Nail Color in Harlem Nocture


Give your blue a little festive flare with this shimmery shade. The slightly silver finish has an almost chrome effect—perfect for sitting under the stars and waiting on fireworks.

To buy: $20;
