Fourth of July is this week, and while we're gearing up for fireworks and a barbeque, it's important to think about fun ways to be as festive as possible. Adding red, white and blue to your outfit is key (or really push the envelope and don some stars and stripes!), but you can show your American pride in other fun ways, too.

One of our favorite ways to express ourselves is through nail polish -- and when we came across this pretty picture of a flag-inspired mani on Pinterest, we just had to share. It's not too complicated to do -- you really just need a steady hand for the one striped nail and a toothpick dipped in red polish to make the little heart. The best part? It's all for fun and no one will be staring at your nails, looking for perfection, but they'll be super impressed you took the time to switch it up.
