You could say that I am a proud Puerto Rican and you would be correct! I take great pride in my culture and each year around the same time Puerto Ricans around the country gather in New York to show just exactly how proud we are!
This year marks the 55th annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade!!!
Even though I cannot be there in person, I am so there in spirit and mani! LOL!
I will preface these post with a warning... there is a ton of Puerto Rican going on in here! So much so that E called my mani the drag queen of manis! I will admit that I may have gone a bit nuts but ya gotta sometimes, know what I mean? There were just so many ideas floating around in my head and I think I used them all.
For my Puerto Rican Pride mani I used a base coat, one coat of China Glaze Ruby Pumps and my new Finger Paints Liners for the art. Hip Hip Hue-Ray is the white liner and Royal Renoir is the electric blue liner. I will say that I found them a bit thick but the colors are amazing and they weren't too terribly hard to work with. I even managed to do my right hand with the exact same design and that is no small feat my friends! After completing the flags on all but one finger, I added my fimo stick Puerto Rican flags and blinged them out with some rhinestones. Voila! A Puerto Rican Pride mani that would make any 'Rican happy!
I hope you like them!
|Bet you can't guess that I am 100% Puerto Rican from 100 miles away!|
|Nothing like a drag mani to get the party started! :)|
P.S. I tried to get E to bust out her best 'Rican inspired mani for today (she is Puerto Rican too) but she decided to leave it to me since her fungal visiter hasn't left yet :(
