I’ve known since last year that when Mardi Gras came around I was going to do a roundup of items themed around the holiday. Being from Louisiana and not having done one already is a bit shameful if I’m honest. Anywho, for the past month or so I’ve been kicking around how I wanted to do it and I finally decided that I wanted to focus on products that I’ve either used or I could actually point you to on the blog for swatches. Within the past week I finally narrowed it down to the specific theme of “Mardi Gras Nail Polish Picks” for this year, next year I’ll focus on another category, and I decided to focus on primarily Zoya products as they’re a brand I happily promote. These are the Zoya polishes that I feel make the best Mardi Gras Nail Polish Picks!
Zoya Maria-Luisa – $10.00 || Maria-Luisa is a gold special effect polish that can be layered over other polishes with a coat or two, if you want a light Mardi Gras look layer it over a white and if you want a more vampy Mardi Gras mani layer it over a black. However, if you have the time to build it up with a couple of coats you can actually wear this by itself as well. For swatches of Zoya Maria-Luisa check out the video in this post.
Zoya Thea – $10.00 || Thea is a purple Pixie Dust polish with chunks of hex glitter in it. While this is designed to be worn without a top coat for that chunky effect you can put a couple coats of top coat on for a more polished look. For swatches of Thea check out this post.
Zoya Rina – $10.00 || Rina is a shamrock green bar glitter special effects polish. Like Maria-Luisa it can be put on top of another polish, I recommend only one coat with Rina, or with a couple of layers it can be worn on it’s own. For swatches of Rina check out the video in this post.
Zoya Chita – $10.00 || Chita is a deep green Pixie Dust Polish. While Chita is a deeper green than the typical greens used for Mardi Gras, I actually think this would work wonders in a vampy/darker Mardi Gras themed manicure. For swatches of Chita check out the video in this post.
