$25.00 at Sephora.com
Happy Mani Monday y'all! Oh, and of course...Happy Mardi Gras!! Scott and I drove home to Louisiana this past weekend. Every year we try to get together with our good friends to celebrate and watch the Mardi Gras parades. We had a blast as always and ate WAY too much king cake. I mean...we had a gluttony situation on hand. I am definitely feeling the repercussions! For those who don't know anything about Mardi Gras, here is a short run down: Traditionally, Mardi Gras is the last "hurrah" for Catholics to treat themselves and indulge (usually there is a lot of over indulging taking place) before Ash Wednesday arrives which will mark the beginning of the clean (and sober) weeks of fasting through lent. If you have never made it to a Mardi Gras parade/party in Louisiana then you should definitely try and go! Just be prepared for the craziness to happen.
In celebration of Mardi Gras this month, my Mani Monday polish this week is the beautiful Dolce & Gabbana nail lacquer in Royal - pearly royal purple. The main colors that represent Mardi Gras is purple, gold and green. I didn't want to get too out of hand and do a crazy combo of the three, so I decided to go with just one. When I saw this gorgeous shade of purple, I thought it was very fitting for the occasion. It's such a sophisticated looking shade and it has a hint of pearl shine to it! It will go with any fab Mardi Gras ball gown or a casual parade outfit. Purchase it here at Sephora and Laissez bons temps rouler!!
