This is a simple but interesting nail look that incorporates the three main Mardi Gras colors, purple, gold and green. Although this Mardi Gras nail design may look a bit complicated, it is actually pretty simple and can be completed in just a few steps.

You will need purple, gold and green colored nail polishes of your choice. To finish off your Mardi Gras nails, you should also have a clear top coat to seal in your design.

To begin, use your gold nail polish to make a horizontal line towards the middle of your fingernail. The width of the line should be about the size of the nail polish brush. This will separate your nail into three sections.

Next, use your purple nail polish to fill in the bare section beneath the gold and finally use your green polish to paint the tip. Complete your Mardi Gras nails with a coat of clear nail polish.
