As the 4th of July draws closer, the timing is perfect for showing off our patriotic spirit in style (or booking an appointment for one, at least). Nails make the perfect canvas for self-expression; the bigger the canvas, the more there can be. But hey, what if you're rocking short nails? You're in luck because we come with some sizzling 4th of July nail art ideas that'll make those digits dazzle!

First off, let's talk colors: red, white, and blue are (other) stars of the show here, so already there's a lot going on, just colors-wise. If you have shorter nails, opt for minimalist designs that pack a punch.

Next up: stripes! Vertical, horizontal, or diagonal, and paired with flag colors on other fingers, they instantly scream "USA!" on your nails.

Finally, the stars! They're a classic symbol of freedom and can look downright fantastic on shorter nails. So, whether you choose cute accents, bold stripes, celestial stars, or all of the above, your nails will help keep you in a celebratory mood even after the Fourth has passed.
