Brighten your tips with cherry red shimmer: If you want to instantly illuminate your fingertips, look no further than a bright pop of cherry red. Try creating an ultra Canadian manicure with nails painted shimmery red. Meanwhile, a single accent fingernail with maple leaves over white polish can easily create visual interest.

Accessorize your French manicure: For a playful twist on the classic French manicure, think Canadian colours. Try accenting a few fingernails with classic white tips, but experimenting with tiny red dots and red-painted tips as well. For a finishing touch, rhinestone-studded red maple leaves can usher in proudly Canuck vibes.

Go classic: If you want to stay true to your roots without glitter or decals, matte red and white nail polish is your answer. Try a bright crimson lacquer, and then detail a single white-painted nail with a bright red leaf to wrap your patriotic manicure in style.
