Patriotic Nails for the Fourth #BeautyBuzz


DIY Patriotic Nails

I’m super psyched to announce that I’m the newest co-host for Beauty Buzz, a weekly beauty collaboration with Mom Trends, Mama in Heels, and Sassy Moms in the City (and now ME!)

Beauty BUZZ

I’ve been writing weekly beauty posts and linking up with these lovely ladies for a while so I’m thrilled to be joining them to co-host this this fun linkup. Be sure to tune in every Tuesday for beauty tips and reviews (and of course a fabulous giveaway!) I hope you enjoy this weekly feature.

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, and I’m having fun with this patriotic red and blue nail polish pair by StrangeBeautiful that came in my June GLOSSYBOX. (You can view my June GLOSSYBOX unboxing video if you want to see all the other goodies inside!!

Do you like to do patriotic nails for The Fourth? You can see from my manicure above that I’m not very creative with the nail art, but if you are, here are some fun ways to dress up your nails for your Fourth of July festivities. I’ve included links to the sites that show you how to achieve these looks, and I tried to choose tutorials that look fairly easy. Let me know if you try one of these!

Easy DIY Fourth of July Nails

Now head over to visit my Beauty Buzz partners, Kristin of Mom Trends, Janise of Mama in Heels and Alison of Sassy Moms in the City to see what goodies they have to share!

You can link up your beauty post with Janise this week.
