So I did my nails! Philippines flag inspired!
This Sunday on June 2 is the NYC Philippines Independence Day Parade and I decided to do my nails in honor of our independence and our cultural pride.
It’s pretty simple really. I just painted on the Philippines flag on my middle finger and then put on the colors of the flag on the other 4. Next I decided to write in baybayin. I wanted to write Pilipinas but I would need all 5 nails for that and one was already of the Philippines flag so I decided to write out Pinoy instead. Then on the last nail I put the sun and stars on top of the white. Next time instead of the sparkle dots I want to put rhinestones on them but I need to buy some nail glue and the rhinestones.
Anyway so I’ll be attending the Philippines Independence Day Parade in NYC on Madison Ave. My brother is actually going to be performing on stage this year. It’s actually last minute but he’s getting ready for it. That means since he’s a performer we get to have passes behind the stage and of course with those passes we can meet some of the celebrities who are attending this year! :D
Some to name a few are Marian Rivera, Bong Revilla, Gary Valenciano, Derek Ramsay, and Heart Evangelista.
But I’m really there just to watch the parade, dance performances, music, etc. We are actually not walking in the parade this year (we have been walking in the parade for the past 4-5 years now) just because we actually just want to enjoy watching the parade this year. Which works for me because I want to be taking pictures of different groups and performances as well as some videos.
So expect some pictures next week both on this blog and the Pinoy-Culture blog!
