Each week, in a column called HipLatina Style, we take a look at the different ways that Latinas show off their unique style, and share it with the world. This week, it’s all about the badass nail art designs (by Latinas, and non-Latinas alike) that have us yelling out, “they nailed it!” Think your fashion/beauty look, art, or other form of style is equally fabulous? Hashtag your Instagram photos with #HipLatinaStyle to be featured next!
How dope are these nails?! They give a shoutout to La Virgen de Guadalupe, with a design that makes the nails look like they’re part of a rosary.

Gilded and Intricate
These nails are the perfect balance between classic and ornate. You have the classic, neutral base, which is overlaid with rhinestones, and almost-Baroque curlicues.
Coming Up Roses
There appears to be a trend here with these nails. If you have a neutral backdrop, you can get a little more creative with designs without it looking tacky. This mani has a beautiful pop of color, in the form of pink-red roses, set against a blush-nude background.
This year’s World Cup took the world by storm, and we all were excited to rep for our country/countries (and all our Latin-American countries!) in stylish ways. These Argentina-inspired nails are so intricate, so cool, so neat, that we had to include them in this roundup.
A Touch of Lace
