Nails Did: Get Your Mardi Gras On

Mardi Gras is less than two weeks away and what better way to celebrate your local festivities than to do up your nails. So today we have a quick tutorial to do just that get your nails wildin’ for a crazy night.

What you will need:

– Colored paper
– Xacto knife
– Gold and purple rhinestones
– Purple and Green Glitter nail polish
– Top clear coat

Step 1:First paint your nails except one a glittery purple I’m using Opi’s Show it and glow it! Then paint one finger nail with a green glitter polish I used Opi’s Glow it up already! Apply two coats then let dry – do not apply top coat.

Step 2: Next grab your colored paper and start cutting! Cut up a few of each color with your xacto knife into very small pieces. Use  your top coat on the one finger you painted green and apply the cut up pieces of paper on top of it while the top coat is still wet so it sticks. Apply top coat carefully on top of your conffeti nail so everything stays in place.

Step 3: Grab your rhinestones – you can find them at your local Michael’s stores  – use gold and purple hues for the rhinestones to keep up with the Mardi Gras theme. Use your top coat as an adhesive then apply your rhinestones on all nails painted in purple. Apply top coat to all finger nails and your done! You’re all ready for Mardi Gras :)
