¡Viva Fiesta!

¡Viva Fiesta! Every spring in San Antonio, the entire city throws a giant week-long party. It's either to celebrate Easter or to have an excuse for music and bright colors and drinking in the street. We at the symphony participle by throwing a Fiesta Pops concert, which includes a real live Mariachi Band. If you happened to be at the concert last night, you did in fact hear a Mariachi song that was about...a handlebar mustache.
An event this spectacular obviously requires a special manicure. I chose 5 different piñata colors, painted each nail a different shade, then used two coats of Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday on top.

The colors I used were:
  • Thumb: Zoya Pippa
  • Index: OPI Belize it or Not
  • Middle: China Glaze Gaga for Green
  • Ring: Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby
  • Pinkie: OPI Fly

On my Right hand, I used the same colors but changed the order. I wanted a complete melange of piñata shades. If I had more time, I thought about getting some tissue paper too...maybe next year.

What do you think? Does it capture the spirit of Fiesta? Have you ever gotten to experience Fiesta? I would love to hear your stories.



  1. This is so cute! I like how the glittery topcoat ties all the shades together... Sometimes skittles manicures look a little "random" to my eye. And a week of Fiesta sounds like fun, wish I could go! :)
