Mardis Gras Manicure 2014

Mardis Gras Manicure CoverHappy Mardis Gras!

I’m not going to pretend that I’m super into Mardi Gras or anything but, as with most holidays, I embrace the opportunity to do a holiday appropriate manicure.

For this manicure I used 2 of my favorite polishes from China Glaze; Dandy Lyin’ Around and Glitter All The Way.

I used 3 coats of Dandy Lyin’ Around as the base. I really love Dandy Lyin’ Around. It’s the perfect alternative to a stark white polish. Once I let Dandy Lyin’ Around partially dry I used Glitter All The Way (which I have always described as Mardis Gras in a bottle) to add glitter fading from the tip.

This is obviously a very simple manicure but I do think it’s festive and my nails are definitely ready to party!

There are swatches under the jump.

    Cute! Luv the base color, such a delicate pretty white! Does it have a tinge of yellow or is that just my computer?

      Not any yellow. It’s slightly dusty which makes it look a bit soft.
