NOTD: Mardi Gras Madness!!

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!


Oh yes oh yes, today is Mardi Gras! Time to eat, drink, be merry, and collect as many little strings of plastic beads as you can! Bring on the zydeco! Bring on the crawfish! Have at it, 'cause lent starts tomorrow!


For my Mardi Gras manicure, I started with a skittle of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Goin' Way Down South, Four Star Daydream (both from Side B of the Dad's Mixtape collection) and My Precious, along with Spellbound Nails Milky Way. Then I stamped the fleur-de-lis image from UberChic Beauty 14-01:





I stamped using Messy Mansion Soft Gold, and then I added some cool ringed half-pearls I got from Born Pretty Store to make my own little string of beads:





Here's how it came out:

What do you think?! I love how these colors play together to make a perfect Mardi Gras triad, and there's enough shimmer and glitter to give it some New Orleans glitz. And I was really impressed by the ringed pearls--they stayed put for ages. If you like them, you can find them here in Born Pretty Store, and can use my code for 10% off your purchase: MCL91.


Happy stamping, and happy Mardi Gras! Laissez les bons temps rouler!!
