Mardi Gras is tomorrow!!! I’m not prepared. I’m a bit of upset that Mardi Gras coincided Valentine’s Day as I had just a few different Mardi Gras nail artwork concepts, however ran out of time. I like the mixture of purple, inexperienced, and gold, and what it represents for Mardi Gras. It’s simply so enjoyable and I at all times assume again to after I visited New Orleans throughout this vacation.
So I wished to share this look each with flash and with out. For Mardi Gras, I wished to make use of reflectives as a result of they’re good for a celebration and I had all the colours.
Quite simple look of three colours however right here they’re:
- Base: KBShimmer Berry Chill (virtually went with Awfully Frond of You)
- Inexperienced: KBShimmer Pull It Collectively
- Gold: KBShimmer Slush Fund
Stocking Improvement is extra of a Mardi Gras inexperienced, but it surely actually relies on
your base. It was only a tad too darkish towards my base shade. After all
you can do a purple, inexperienced, and gold reflective over a special shade base
however I felt like purple nails. I by no means do purple nails so after I
really feel it, I prefer to indulge. I really feel like I solely put on purple throughout
Halloween and Mardi Gras. That is such a easy look. It’s actually
dots utilizing reflective polish throughout your nails. It jogs my memory of all of the
damaged beads you would possibly discover on Bourbon Road. The whole manicure,
together with doing the bottom shade, took 26 minutes.
I simply eliminated this manicure so I can do a Valentine’s Day look and the purple base stained my nails orange. Have you ever ever had that occur? I had to make use of cuticle remover to try to get a few of the stains off, however I’m so curious as to why a purple nail polish would stain my nail beds, orange.
