Cinco De Mayo is often celebrated using bright colors and patterns, which will be sure to catch the eye and can easily tell a historical tale.
Cinco De Mayo, traditionally, celebrates Mexico’s victory over the French army in 1862.
While many have mistaken this holiday as Mexico’s Independence Day, that isn’t the case – in fact, this victory took place nearly 50 years after Mexico officially gained their independence. It is important to note, however, that this was a relatively short victory for Mexico, as France did later invade Mexico and hold occupation there for several years.
All the same, this holiday continued to be celebrating in areas such as Pueblo, but festivities are not, normally, celebrated in Mexico. As a matter of fact, Cinco De Mayo is much more a Mexican-American holiday than a Mexican holiday.
All the same, many individuals think of the holiday as a representation of their culture and find a variety of ways to express their pride.
Traditionally, Cinco De Mayo is a festivity of bright colors. Cinco De Mayo nail designs may have a variety of themes, beginning with the traditional bright colors associated with many Mexican holidays. You may see bright shades of pink, orange, yellow, and blue. Additionally, you might choose to have your nails done in the traditional colors of the Mexican flag, an assortment of white, green, and red.
There are a variety of symbols you can choose from, from sugar skulls, which are unique to the Hispanic culture, to cacti and chile peppers and maracas.
No matter how you choose to decorate your Cinco De Mayo themed nails, they will certainly be a beautiful representation of culture and history.
