Creative musings in bright colors

Mardi Gras

My Zoyas are some of my favorite polishes, and Valerie is no exception. She made my top 10 polishes of the year, and yet I hardly wear her! So, I designed this mani around her. And it came out looking like Mardi Gras, so I am posting it today, in honor of tomorrow (this was actually painted in December. I HAVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG!).


I wanted to do a tight fishtail braid (a la Lucy’s Stash), and just like Lucy, I went with three Zoyas! My picks were Valerie, Holly, and Ziv. 3 different finishes and 3 different colors. And I love it!



My original plan was to do a fishtail on every nail, but this was a weeknight and so I was limited by time. Instead I settled for a chevron french tip, with an accent fishtail and something somewhat in the middle on my thumb. *shrug*


I cannot get over how glittery this manicure is! Valerie glows, Ziv keeps throwing off sparkles, and Holly shines.


Hope you enjoyed!
