So, you don't have the dexterity or time to create miniature designs on your nails to show your patriotism. It's understandable. Reach for these NCLA Fiercely Independent nail wraps ($16) instead. During our weeklong trial, admirers had plenty to say about these decals (from the cashier at the local yogurt shop to the server at the lunchtime sushi spot).
While the design is reminiscent of the American flag, the skull and bones, heart, and dollar sign interpretations add edgy elements. They're quite easy to apply, as well, although there were a few wrinkles in the process. Wear these wraps on your Fourth of July beachside vacation (no, they won't budge when wet) or save them for later this month to show support for your favorite team during the upcoming Olympic games.
