NOTD: Mardi Gras

Today is Mardi Gras! I actually sat down for an hour and worked on this manicure. It's actually a bit more time consuming than it looks, especially placing all the little, stubborn beads! The thumb alone took me about half an hour, but I'm pleased with the result.
Thumb: Base is China Glaze Happy Go Lucky. The mask on the thumb is freehanded. After drawing I covered it with rhinestones & added bullion beads to the side. The feathers sticking out are done with China Glaze Grape Pop & Four Leaf Clover.
Index: Base is China Glaze Grape Pop, topped with OPI Sparkle-icious. That polish is Mardi Gras in a bottle itself! =)
Middle: Base is China Glaze Four Leaf Clover. I added rhinestones & bullion beads to represent the Mardi Gras beads.
Ring: Base is China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, sponged with Four Leaf Clover and Grape Pop. Stamp is from m78, stamping polish is China Glaze 2030.
Pinky: Base is China Glaze Grape Pop. This one looks kinda out of place, I know. I didn't know what to do with it, so I placed rhinestones on top to go along with the rest of the nails.



If you celebrate Mardi Gras, have fun! =)

Bugün Mardi Gras, dünyanın çeşitli yerlerinde, özellikle ABD'nin Louisiana eyaleti, New Orleans şehrinde kutlanan bir karnaval. Küçükken bir kitapta okumuştum ve hoşuma gitmişti, ben de bu şekilde bir manikür yapayım dedim. Bitirmem yaklaşık bir saat kadar sürdü. Bu kadar uzun sürmesinin sebebi boncuk yerleştirmek ve boncukların inatla düşmesi. Ama son hali hoşuma gitti.
Baş parmağımdaki karnaval maskesini ben çizdim, sonra da taşlarla kapladım ve kenarına boncuklar ekledim. Altta baz olarak China Glaze Happy Go Lucky var. Tüyleri ise China Glaze Grape Pop ve Four Leaf Clover ile çizdim.
İşaret parmağımda China Glaze Grape Pop üzerine iki kat OPI Sparkle-icious var.
Orta parmağımda China Glaze Four Leaf Clover üzerine boncuklar ve taşlar var, karnavalda kızlara verilen boncukları temsil ediyor.
Yüzük parmağımda China Glaze Happy Go Lucky üzerine diğer iki oje ile sünger uyguladım ve konad m78 diskindeki deseni China Glaze 2030 ile damgaladım.
Serçe parmağımda China Glaze Grape Pop üzerine temaya uysun diye sarı ve yeşil taşlar yapıştırdım.
Bugünlük de bu kadar =)
