Bold red and white glittery tips: For anyone looking to embrace the patriotic spirit without going overboard, try accenting your fingernails with bright red nail polish and a single white statement nail. Meanwhile, eye-catching silver glitter used as a top coat brings your manicure statement to life, for an instantly party-ready manicure.

Gleaming scarlet and metallic nails with maple leaf stencils: If you prefer a playful alternative to sparkling tips, try experimenting with nail art and taking a plunge into the Canada Day beauty vibes. Polish three fingernails with a scarlet or candy apple red polish, and paint your remaining fingernails with a striking ivory shade and a glittery silver colour. For a finishing touch, add a red stencilled maple leaf on the white fingernail in order to show off your True North love.

Playful red and white maple leaves: Since maple leaves are the ultimate Canadian symbol, try adorning two white-painted fingernails with brilliant red leaf nail art. To add a contrasting vibe to the tiny maple leaves, polish your other three fingernails with a creamy rich red shade. This particular nail art idea uses OPI’s Red My Fortune Cookie nail polish.
