If the last time you had Fourth of July-themed nails was around the age when Limited Too was cool, then yeah, I feel you. But in the wide, vast world of today's nail designs, you don't have to stick with the same basic red, white, and blue pattern of your childhood to feel festive.

And to prove it to you, I've cherry-picked the 23 coolest (yes, the coolest) nail ideas and color schemes that read more like a subtle nod to the Fourth, rather than a pointed fireworks display. Screenshot your favorites, ahead, then please proceed to your nearest nail salon.
