Cinco de Mayo Nail Inspo

This Thursday is Cinco de Mayo, a day that commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In the U.S it is a day where the Mexican culture is celebrated! You know how much we love a holiday, and the themed manicure that comes with a holiday, so obviously we want to deck our nails out with a themed manicure. So… We have rounded up our favorite Cinco de Mayo themed manicures to inspire you! You can check out the full Pinterest board here, but first read on to see our top five!

Moustache and Chilli

Cinco de Mayo Nail Inspo

We love this cheeky, yet simple interpretation of the Mexican culture! If you aren’t the most talented nail artist, this mani idea is perfect for you because it is easy and simple but looks amazing.

Mexican themed Stamps

These stamps combine to create an awesome Mexican themed manicure. If you don’t have access to the stamps, try painting your nails in this color theme and using the dry brush technique to create an awesome look.

Sombrero Inspired

This sombrero inspired mani is just plain awesome! The figure on the thumb is quite detailed, but if you aren’t as experienced with nail art the other fingers are easy to achieve with the help of a striper brush.

Cinco de Mayo Fun

This manicure is amazing, but the detail is difficult for non-experienced nail artists.
