Yolanda Hernandez demonstrates how to do Cinco de Mayo Celebration Nails.


1. Apply a reverse French application with Young Nails Frost Pink Acrylic.


2. Mix multiple shapes of glitter with red acrylic, and apply around the smile line. Apply white acrylic and allow it to dry.


3. Apply green, white, and red acrylic vertical stripes. Repeat to make the application wetter.


4. With a stylus, drag the color down through the stripes to create a marbled effect.


5. Apply Aztec design and a coat of clear polish to seal it. Shape and finish by adding rhinestones, and a gel top coat.
