Mardi Gras Mani Madness!!!

Ooh, I almost missed any part of celebrating Mardi Gras!  Well, if I insist on a few more days of celebration, Universal Studios carries the theme til April 23.

This is one of those designs I have swirling around in my brain looking for a way to manifest.  Here’s what I used as my inspiration…

This is a pin I got when I was working in Louisiana, one year, during Mardi Gras.  I didn’t GO to Mardi Gras but I was around New Orleans while it was being celebrated.  In many of my travels, I will purchase a piece of jewelry to remember the event or the place.  I have had this pin for about 10 years and still wear it during Mardi Gras.

The color scheme is yellow, green and purple.  And I added in OPI’s Black Shatter to the look…

Here’s Cosmetic Arts’ creme yellow, BB Couture’s ‘Caterpillar’, Cosmetic Art’s creme purple and the OPI Black Shatter. 

Send them to a party and this is what they come up with…

Mardi Gras Mani Madness!!!

I painted on the colors in a diagonal stripe alternating directions on each finger.  After drying, I put on a layer of Shatter.  I liked it so much, I had to run over to my hubs and show it off.  I got the gratuitous ‘oh, ah, yes!’ from him.

Well, I think it’s cute! I just wish I would have thought of it last night instead of tonight.  I’m still going to wear it tomorrow.  No one handed me a rule book!

Last weekend was the 70th anniversary of the Daytona Bike Week.  My hubs and I went as he had never been before.  And we had a blast.  Here’s the thumb ring I got to commemorate the event…

Do you have any objects that you like to collect during your travels or life events?
