Mardi Gras Beads

Even with Chinese New Year as an early warning, Mardi Gras totally snuck up on me this year! I didn't have much time today to get hugely creative, but the New Orleans native in me couldn't let such a high holiday pass without at least a little bit of nail art.

Starting with a base of Color Club Wild At Heart, I dotted some quick strands of Mardi Gras beads in Sally Hansen CSM Butterscotch, Sally Hansen CSM Grass Slipper, a purple I mixed together, and my trusty Zoya Ziv.

The combination actually managed to be cute and playful without being loud or overstated (though, if there's one occasion on which 'loud and overstated' is totally appropriate...). If I didn't have some "nail homework" to do in the morning I would totally be keeping these on through Tuesday!

.oO Happy Mardi Gras!! Oo.
