Mexican Independence Day Nails

Today is Mexico's Independence Day! Yesterday I went to a festival/concert to celebrate with my family :)
I thought it'd be fun to try and do some fun Mexican flag inspired nails! I started out by painting all my nails white. Then I sponged on green, white, and red polish to create a flag gradient background. Once that was dry I used a dotting tool and tried my best to draw the eagle from the center of the Mexican flag. The eagles didn't turn out very good since my nails are quite short at the moment but I still think that what I could fit looked cute :)

Once I had finished the left hand I decided to just randomly sponge on green, white, and red on my right nails. I also added some glitter to give them a little extra sparkle! I love how these turned out! 
I really liked both designs actually lol! 
I hope you enjoyed this post and check back soon for more :)
