Fat Tuesday Mani featuring Red Dog Designs Here Comes the Big Parade

Laissez les bon temps rouler!  Or in English….Let the good times roll!  I hold a special place in my heart for New Orleans and Mardi Gras.  It's colorful and loud, with music everywhere, parades, beads, amazing food and drinks and happy (albeit drunk) people as far as the eye can see.  So much fun!

So before I delve into cooking Jambalaya and baking a King Cake I wanted to share my Mardi Gras mani with you!  Let me just say this though…Gina at Red Dog Designs is a glitter genius!  She made this for our mutual friend at Ehmkay Nails and she literally knocked it out of the park!  (Here Comes)3 The Big Parade is full of purple, green and gold CIRCLE glitters, and smaller sized hexs in the same color.  There is also microfine purple and holo glitters.  All the glitters lay flat and smooth on my nails.  It's perfect….and it's Limited Edition so go get it now if you like it.

The details:
2 coats OPI Funky Dunky (thumb, index, pinkie)
2 coats Julep Oscar (middle, ring)
1 coat Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow (middle, pinkie)
1 coat Red Dog Designs (Here Comes)3 the Big Parade
1 layer of topcoat
