I have a special place in my heart for Fat Tuesday. High school french class wasn’t necessarily the most legit class but for four years Mlle made it something special. We celebrated Fat Tuesday every year doing some ridiculous arts and craft project, like making paper marionettes (Shout out to Jasper who dances for nickles!). We also got to eat some serious delish French food, including guest chef appearances by Mr. Mahoney across the hall. So we celebrated in a French class kind of way.
I still celebrate. Even though I’ve never made it to New Orleans or ever flashed for beads, I still take the time to theme out my day… and maybe hit up the bar and get some beads anyways…
As promised I themed out my manicure. A Mardi Gras inspired manicure using the NEW shade Violet Haze from the mark. Nailed-It trend lacquers duo – violet femme shades. I then stamped China Glaze Passion over it with the swirl design from konad plate m63. All in all I think it makes for one Bon Fat Tuesday! (and yes I know clean up around the cuticles is needed… they’re just so raw that I need it to happen naturally – by doing dishes haha )
I themed out the rest of me with a purple and yellow combo. My dress, The Very Vintage Dress is available in my mark store in and out of last chance. So if you want it and don’t see it in my eBoutique, hit me up! <http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com>
And just for the fun of it, here’s Violet Haze in all its glory. I really LOVE this shade and think its the PERFECT weekend shade for spring! It is part of the Nailed-It Trend Mini Nail Lacquer – Violet Femme. You can see its counterpart here.
