Summer is the season of patriotic holidays. We kick off summer with the biggest one of all, the Fourth of July. But we end summer with another one, Labor Day. This means there are still reasons to rock patriotic nail art for some fun Labor Day nail designs.
What are Labor Day nail designs? We simply have to look at the history of Labor Day to know how to style it. Labor Day is an American holiday that got its start due to a rocky time in American History.
There were workers who were tired of being mistreated by employers and so they rallied together. They fought against terrible working conditions, child labor, and so much more.
The fight was long and difficult but eventually, the workers won out getting a lot of what they asked for and making life more tolerable for generations to come. It is a true story of American people banding together to create an even more perfect union.
The Fourth of July is a holiday that celebrates the creation of the American Union, the United States of America. But Labor Day is a celebration of a different type of American Union, and it is worth celebrating loudly and proudly.
The question is, how do you factor better working conditions into your nail art? Simply put, Labor Day is a patriotic holiday. We aren’t celebrating the soldiers who fought for freedom or the government officials who led us through difficult times throughout history.
Instead, we are celebrating the American workforce. We are celebrating ourselves and the fact that our ancestors fought for better conditions for us all. We are far from perfect these days but we are even further away from how things once were.
Imagine having an elementary school-aged coworker; not a fun situation for anyone involved. So we celebrate Labor Day in our style with the icon of the American people, the one thing that covers each and every person in our country; the American flag!

Patriotic Nail Art for Labor Day
The American flag doesn’t represent a government or aisles; donkeys or elephants. Instead, the American flag represents a people, the people of the United States. And so, we can use that flag in our Labor Day nail art ideas.
