Mardi Gras!

I love Mardi Gras! Celebrating the day is a rather big deal in Louisiana. Though I have never been New Orleans and experienced that slice of crazy. Up where I'm at, there are several parades. Floats, fun, and beads. I just had to do a mani for today.

Its a fun design to wear, but honestly it took a lot of patience. This was my first time using striping tape. I imagine practice makes perfect. I used two coats of Beauty UK Electric Purple then gold and green striping tape. I topped it off with a layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust. I absolutely love these polishes! Electric Purple has a pretty shimmer and good application. Fairy Dust is a clear base filled with micro holo glitter. Its an amazing polish to layer with.

Beauty UK polish retails for £2.49 on their website. You can also get sets there for £4.99. Individual polishes are full size (14ml) and the polishes from sets are minis (8ml).

    1. Thank you! Its easy to do, just takes time and patience.
