Fourth of July 2014 Outfit + Makeup + Nail Ideas

4th of July 2014 Outfit + Makeup + Nail Ideas

Time to bust out the red, white, blue, and barbeque to celebrate our great nation!  That’s right–it’s 4th of July again and I can’t help but decorate myself from head to toe.  Here are a few outfit ideas (things I plan to wear on July third and fourth), patriotic nails, and a simple beauty look to top it off.

To come up with this look, I did what I do when I dress for any holiday and surveyed everything I own that coordinated with the occasion.  In this case–red, white, blue, stripes, and sparkles.

What’s more American than cut-offs and Chuck Taylor’s?  Probably a lot but work with me here ‘Merica…

On my face, I did my makeup like normal except with shimmery blue liner on my lower lash line (it’s Nicka K New York shimmer eyeliner that I got in my June Ipsy Glam Bag) and I layered a red Tarte lip gloss over Vivid Rose Maybelline lipstick.

Headband is Stella & Dot’s ‘Zoe Lariat‘ // necklace via Jane // hair (see review here)

I cannot for the life of me remember where those earrings are from but they’re just simple silver hoops.

My camera in no way did this nail look justice…glitter is not a good photography subject AT ALL.

  • the RED polish is Atom + Eve – a ruby red glitter nail polish
  • BLUE is Butler Please (one of my fave shades of all time because it is such a bright, brilliant blue) with Fairy Dust (holographic micro glitter) on top
  • WHITE is White Matter topped with Fairy Dust as well
  • I used the Formula X system on all of my nails.  I did a review on it here and it makes my polish (even non-Formula X polishes) last for at least a week with only tiny chips/cracks.

So there ya go!  Fourth of July Valerie Style.  I’d love to know what you’ll be wearing and what you thought of these looks.  Have a very happy and safe July Fourth holiday weekend!

Here is what my family wore July 4th, 2012.

I’m linking up with What I Wore Wednesday and Random Wednesday and totally encourage you to check out what other super stylish bloggers are wearing.
