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
