DIY Memorial Day Nail Ideas

Are you celebrating Memorial Day with a BBQ or time by the water? Hopefully you are spending time with family and friends! No matter what your plans take some time to decorate your nails. Add some fun patriotic designs. Here are some fun Memorial Day nail ideas. If I can do these YOU CAN TO!


Blue solid nails with red diagonal strips.


Plain blue is classic and beautiful. I used Sinful Colors Professional in Endless Blue.


Coat your nails with three patriotic color strips. Use a toothpick to create the swirl effect. Easy and you CAN NOT mess this up!


Red and Blue with one line of white to divide the two colors. I used Sinful Colors Professional in Endless Blue and GoGo Girl and Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen. It’s classic and fun.


My favorite design and the easiest one to create! Use blue as your base. Allow it to dry. Take nail art pens in red and white and gently mark dots on each nail. Finish with a top coat to protect.


For this ultimate patriotic look start with red (I used Sinful Colors GoGo Girl) and let it dry. Color the top corner with blue ( I used Sinful Colors Endless Blue). Use a white nail art pen to draw the lines and the dots.
