Sugar skull nail art - Cinco de Mayo Nail Art
When my sister visited this past weekend, we realized that everyone was celebrating Cinco de Mayo with good food, good drinks, and good times. While the week was a busy one for both of us, I wanted to join in the festivities by creating a nail look inspired by Cinco de Mayo. I came up with a fun yet sophisticated look inspired by the rich imagery of Hispanic culture. I chose red and green nail polish colors, but you can substitute for any vibrant polishes you may have available. The base color can be any light color in your polish collection, as you don’t necessarily need stark white as a base. I have CND’s shellac in “Cake Pop” as a base since I thought the pink base would give this manicure a cute twist.
As always, have fun with your manicure and I hope you all had a great time on Cinco de Mayo!
