I just realized this morning that it’s Mardi Gras! I don’ t know how it snuck up on me like that- it’s definitely my kind of holiday, involving glitter, sparkles, rhinestones and beads. So in honor of all things sparkly and over the top, here’s what I’m wearing today:
These nails are long and unwieldy but perfect for Mardi Gras! In my quest to start using my rhinestones, I’ve made little bead “necklaces” out of gold, emerald and purple Swarovski crystals. The base is Zoya Julianne, and then I used a thin brush to paint stripes of China Glaze Emerald Sparkle and China Glaze Midnight Kiss. After that was done, I applied my rhinestones.
So, I just wrote, “Gimme Beads!” on instead. What I really wanted to write was “Gimme Beads and Nobody Gets Hurt!” but there just wasn’t enough room for that. On this one, I just used my dotting tool to make gold dots over the purple and green swirls.
Happy Mardi Gras to everyone!
