Mardi Gras Nails

I did an exciting and festive mani for Mardi Gras this year. I layered Candy Lacquer- Apple Jack over Funky Fingers- Prince Charming. This turned out spectacular!

Apple Jack is filled primarily with yellow glitter in various sizes of hex sizes. There are smaller sizes of green hexes and giant red hexes!

I used two coats of Apple Jack and application was fairly easy. I did have to place the glitter evenly a little bit. Candy Lacquer can be purchase via the Big Cartel shop. Currently the shop is closed, but it will be reopening this Friday February 15th.

Funky Fingers- Prince Charming is a shimmery purple. This was taken without the flash indoors.  It was on the sheer side, and while I was putting on the first two coats, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I was surprised! It ended up looking very nice. It was durable also.

Here is Prince Charming taken with the flash. You can slightly see tiny blue shimmer particles, but the base is more red-toned. I've seen this one at Five Below stores fairly recently. Funky Fingers retail for $2 each or 3 for $5. They have a great formula and range of colors for the price!
