This year for the Fourth of July, I'm setting the bar a little higher with patriotic nail art. What better way to show your gratitude for our country's independence than with pretty nails?

I'm not alone on this. Search Pinterest for patriotic nail art and you will see hundreds of pins and repins by people who think this is a pretty neat idea too! But is it realistic?

I set out to determine whether average people like you and me can accomplish amazing-looking red, white, and blue nails just like we see on Pinterest.

Watch this video to see if July 4th nail art is a win or a fail!:
