Fancy Friday #141 – Mardi Gras

Hello and happy Friday. We took a little break in the Fancy Friday group to renew our energy, but now we are back. In Denmark we have a tradition called Fastelavn  where kids dress up in costumes and go from door to door, like a Danish Halloween, but without the scary part. So since that falls on this sunday we decided for this to be our theme for this week.

The first thing I thought of was dressing up, which lead my brain to carnivals which in turn landed me on Mardi Gras. The colors of Mardi Gras is gold/yellow, green and purple, so I did a simple striping/fire works manicure with those three colors.

For the base I used three coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, and free-handed the lines using a striping brush and Barry M Gold Foil for the gold, Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer for the purple and Kiko 531 Pearly Green Butterfly for the green. This is super simple and super fast to do, and it can be varied with different colors and finishes.

A couple of years ago I was in New Orleans, although not for Mardi Gras, but we brought home some Mardi Gras beads, so they had to be included in a photo with these nails, since they match so well. Remember to click by the other ladies to see what they did for today.

I anledning af Fastelavn på søndag, er det fredagens tema. Jeg kom straks til at tænke på Mardi Gras i New Orleans, hvor folk klæder sig ud og går i parader på gaden. Mardi Gras farverne er guld, grøn og lilla, så jeg lavede en simpel striping manicure med de tre farver. Husk at klikke forbi de andre for at se hvad de har fundet på.
