With Mardi Gras happening in so many places around the world I couldn’t resist doing a Mardi Gras nail design.
Personally I hope to make it to the parade in Sydney. I had a fantastic time when I went last time! Fingers crossed it does rain too much!
I decided to keep this design fairly simple as this would be the first time doing free hand on my actual nails.
I choose a fantastic bright purple for my remaining nails.
For the rainbow pattern, the first four stripes were created using French Manicure guideline stickers. I freehanded the in-between colours. I had to completely redo one of the nails after making a complete mess of it.
Overall for my first freehand on my actual hand I’m fairly happy with the results.
