I’ve been in Brasilia twice at carnaval time but can you believe I’ve never actually seen it live? First time around I was told carnaval wasn’t the place for a pregnant woman to go and the second time around we decided we couldn’t really be bothered – probably a good thing as there was a lot of trouble out that night. When people talk of carnivals three things spring to mind: the annual Liphook carnival, Notting Hill Carnival and the Brazilian Carnaval.
The Liphook carnival isn’t the sort of event that would inspire a mani so I decided to do something inspired by the other two. I used China Glaze Black Diamond as a base and used Leighton Denny Liquid Silver, Color Club Hot Like Lava and a gold striping pen to freehand a design. Then I topped off the nails with some feathers I pinched from my nan’s craft stuff. Like the candy floss mani this is something I would never wear on natural nails but I guess that’s one of the advantages of working on falsies: your only limit is your imagination.
