Mardi Gras is next week! Are you doing something festive to your nails to celebrate?

You don’t have to go for any design that is too intricate or time consuming. By simply wearing a manicure color, or mixture of colors associated with the celebration, you can have fashionable and celebratory nails perfect for Mardi Gras.

According to the Mardi Gras New Orleans website, the three main colors associated with the celebrations are purple, green and gold. “Purple represents justice, green represents faith and gold represents power.”

Some purple nail polish colors that would be perfect for Mardi Gras nails include Pamplona Purple by OPI, Purple Rain by NARS, Daddy’s Girl by Sinful Colors or Coconut Kiss by China Glaze.

Green nail polishes perfect for creating festive Mardi Gras manicures include Holly by Zoya, Last Chance by Sinful Colors or Kleancolor’s Green Grass.

If you would rather celebrate Mardi Gras with gold nails, polishes like Bold Gold by Maybelline, Antiquated by Color Club or Immortal Gold by MAC.
