Nopal Nails

Hello eveyone and I hope you're having a good friday! Today is Mexico's Independence day and although I'm not Mexican I am Mexican-American so it's part of my heritage and culture also living in a border city we tend to celebrate or observe both American and Mexican holidays. So I wanted to do some kind of festive nail design, I settled on a Nopal which is on the Mexican flag and very abundant all over Mexico and South Texas. I really love the way this mani turned out and it also reminds me of my Grandma because when I was little she used to have a Nopal in the backyard and I would help her cut of the pads and prepare a meal with them. Anyway enough about all that hope you like the design!

What I used:
- OPI Bling Dynasty
- KleanColor Military Green
- WetnWild Red Red
- So Easy Stripe Rite in Black
- Wooden Manicure Stick (for Nopal)
- Toothpick (for flower buds)
- Seche Vite



  1. Loving this! That polish looks SO great on your nails!

  2. Thanks! My mom actually bought it but I ended up liking it.

  3. Really awesome mani. :)
