There are many ways to get ready for this coming National Day, and getting your nails done in the nation’s signature red and white may just very well be one of them. If you’re still in need of some inspiration, scroll through for some of these nail ideas before your next appointment with your manicurist.
1. Sleek Twist
For an elegant and modern twist, why not incorporate a couple of these sleek black strokes along with red and your natural nail bed as base.
2. Preppy Fun
Gingham is a great pattern of choice that oozes playfulness and preppiness.
For a subtler take on the national flag, incorporate some outlined stars in white for your nails.
4. Flaming Tips
For something both patriotic and feisty, do a rendition of the flame nail art trend in red and white.
5. Matte Red
This is for all the minimalists out there — try the red out in matte for a twist.
6. Ombre Fun
An ombre nail base and red stars will make it national day everyday.
7. Scalloped Edge
Instead of painting a red french nail tip, the inside edge is scalloped here for a playful heart pattern.
8. Contemporary French
Here’s yet another contemporary twist to the classic french mani — with red and pink as tip for chic effect.
9. Do The Polka
The quintessential polka dot is impossible to mess up. Make your manicure stand out with these graphic polka dots over bright red. The different coloured polka dots gives the look more depth.

It’s not National Day if there aren’t any fireworks, and what better way to show it than with some glitter on your nails?
