Mardi Gras Gradient Nails

Hey, Hey, Hey!  Do you know what time it is???  IT'S MARDI GRAS TIME!!!!  I already did one Mardi Gras post a few weeks ago (HERE) where I talked about Mardi Gras in my town.  Today was actually the big Krewe of Centaur parade so I did my nails up all festive for the day.  I actually didn't get to stay for the parade but I did go to a party for a bit.  People get out there at the break of dawn and set up along the parade route and basically just have a big tail gate party all day long with lots of drinks and food.  It's one big all day party then the parade rolls around for about an hour and everybody stays and parties into the night.  Good times!

My nails were a big hit today and I think I have some potential future clients, yay!  :)

These were done using Sally Hansen Golden-I, Kleancolor Metallic Purple, and Sinful Colors San Fransisco. 


I love doing gradients with metallic polish, it's just so pretty.  They're also very messy and hard to clean up but the end result is so worth it.   I actually did something like this last year too but my gradient skills and clean up skills have very much improved lol.  It's true what they say, practice does make perfect. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great night and Laissez les bons temps rouler!
