FYI: Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day

but it IS a great excuse to break out my newly acquired bottle of China Glaze Party Hearty! Wearing it is basically the only reason I did this manicure, which also explains why my "eagle" is really just a brown blob. By the way, Mexican Independence day is September 16th, and that's when my family celebrated. Cinco de Mayo is really a American celebration of Mexican culture on a historically significant day, a day in which Mexican soldiers were vastly outnumbered by better equipped French soldiers and still won a battle.

      Isn't Party Hearty beautiful? Good thing it matches the flag, or I may have had to wait til Italy's Festa della Repubblica (Republic Day) on June 2 to be able to wear it!

In case you're interested, the colors I used for this mani are:
China Glaze Pearty Hearty
China Glaze Holly Day (green)
Sinful Colors Snow me White
Sally Hansen Rapid Red
Kleancolor Shiny Summer Days(gold)
Sinful Colors Nirvana (brown)


  1. YES, Party Hearty is gorgeous! Definitely my favourite polish to wear around Christmas. It's festive and fun.

    1. I was thrilled when I found it back in stock- I had passed on it when I originally saw it around November. After seeing all the beautiful manicures people did with it over the Christmas season, I realized what a mistake that had been, it's THE Christmas glitter to own!
