33DC Day 5: Mexican - Mariachi nails

Hello my dears! How are you today?
For the 5th day of this 33 Days Challenge the theme is "Mexican", which for me was undoubtedly meaning: Mariachi! I like Mariachi music, the costumes, everything is so fun. Ages ago, let me think, it was 2001... or so, I was still living in Argentina and I organised a birthday surprise to my hubby (back then we weren't married yet) with a Mariachi band, and it is one of the most wonderful memories we have of our time together in Argentina. I guess never a surprised was so "surprising" unexpected and fun! We started the evening very quietly, in a small family reunion, and chatting normally, and ended it dancing, singing like crazy and drinking tequila!
Well, all this was to show you my Mariachi nails :)

There's a regularity in all my manis in this challenge: I manage to screw it every time!! I didn't have time to re-do this mani, so please, don't pay much attention to the huge dent in my pinkie. I was using a regular topcoat not a fast drying one, and I totally forgot I had TO WAIT for it to dry... that would have been a good idea (dumb).

For this mani I used one coat of China glaze Liquid leather as a base, and then draw the details using a small brush and some dotting tools. The polishes were: H&M super red, Underline Iced nail polish in Oro and NYX Ink liner in white.
I hope you've liked the mani, and please go have a look to the other great manis for today!
