4th of July is here! It's time to prep our nails for the festivities ahead. 😊

These trends are all about capturing the patriotic spirit while adding a touch of modern flair. From classic hues to creative designs, there's something for everyone to showcase their American pride in style.

Let's go deeper into the top gel polish trends that will have your nails shining bright like fireworks this Independence Day!

Before starting to showcase these amazing gel polish trends, remember to prepare your nails.

Proper nail preparation ensures that your manicure not only looks flawless but also lasts longer. So, first, remove any existing gel polish using our gel polish remover to avoid drying out your nails. Next, shape your nails with a file to achieve your desired length and shape. Then, push back your cuticles gently using a cuticle pusher, being careful not to cut them as this can lead to infections.

Finally, once your nails are clean and shaped, lightly buff the surface to remove any ridges and create a smooth canvas for our gel polish to adhere to. 😊

And of course, do not forget to wipe the debris and keep your nails clean.

With your nails prepped and ready, you're now set to explore and experiment with the stunning gel polish trends we have for you for this 4th of July celebration!
