These Latina Inspired Manicures are Just the Style You Need to Rock For Your Next Mani

Nail care has come a long way since the first manicure salon opened in New York in 1878. First considered part of the medical and hygiene industry, manicures were only for the rich who favored short, round nails as a symbol of wealth. Despite it’s origin, manicures are now widely available, inexpensive and more creative than ever.

Innovation in the nail care field has seen manicurists push the limits of what can be realistically done to nails. Bubble, sculpted and embellished nail art are seen both on the runway and in your barrio. Themed nail art is an especially popular trend and is designed to express individual style.

What better way to express that style than with nail art specifically designed for Latina-themed manicures?

These creative Latina-inspired manicures  have your girls asking where you got your nails did.

19. A manicure to that will have you singing “Recuérdame.”

We still haven’t gotten over the feels from Disney’s Coco. It’s cool, though, because we can turn our manis into makeshift ofrendas to honor Mama Coco and the familia. These decals from Cha Cha Covers make us go “Un Poco Loco” over this look.

20. Man-Go get this mani, ASAP.
