I did this to enter Barielle's Mardi Gras Manicure Contest. I didn't win but that's cool; I still love them and I am very happy with how they came out.
I started with a base of ManGlaze, Matte is Murder, a shimmery matte black. It's got a great formula and I only used one coat.
I used 2 Barielle Shades: Holiday Madness, a shimmering bright sage green, and Rio's Rockin Bands, a shimmery red-toned purple. To apply these I used a dry flat tipped nail art brush and dabbed at the cuticle and then dry brushed towards the tips to give it the feathered look.
To finish the look I used one coat of Zoya's Gilty, a gold flake topper. I sealed it all with a coat of Gelous, In A Hurry.
