It’s that time of year when you get to show off your patriotic leanings, regardless of which political party you belong to. Whether you are hitting the beach or partying down in a rooftop garden, these red white and blue picks will keep you standing out.
This OPI set is exclusive to Merle Norman cosmetics. It includes Hussy – a classic car inspired red created exclusively for Merle Norman by OPI, Alpine Snow, Yoga-ta Get This Blue, and RapiDry Top Coat. $12.50 at Merle Norman stores.
Streekers are a fun, temporary hair color that is applied with a small sponge applicator, making it super easy to use. The colors are nice and bright, and wash out with your next shampoo. You can use it to make patterns – I’d make some fun stripes with the red and blue colors – and the unique formula bonds with hair, so you can even brush it without disturbing the color. Streekers, $10.95 at Ulta.com.
Looking to make a major statement? Violent Lips can help you with that. Their American Flag lip tattoo is super easy to use, simply trim the tattoo to fit your lip size, peel it from it’s backing, set it on your lips inside the waterline, and wet it with water. Allow to dry for at least five minutes. $14.95 at ViolentLips.com.
Feather hair extensions are all the rage at the moment, and it’s a great way to show off your Fourth spirit. These are easy to apply, just make sure you have a crimping tool to close the crimp bead that holds it in your hair. Feathers blend beautifully in the hair and can be washed, brushed, and even blow dried. $24.95 at Amazon.com
