carnaval nail art


Today is the carnaval parade in Cordoba, where I live. Carnaval is not a huge thing here and I think it’s quite a small scale parade, Cadiz is the big carnaval town in Andalucia but I’m sure it will be fun here today.

Anyway, I thought I’d use it as my inspiration for a manicure. I love the Venetian carnaval masks and tied to recreate the patterns from them on my nails. It was difficult to get the feeling of an intricately patterned mask on my small nails but I gave it a go…


I used: Floral Street – Nails Inc, Baker Street, Nails Inc, The Boltons, Nails Inc, Dragon – A England, Delinquent – Urban Decay, A Piece of Forever – Essence.

And here’s the masks which inspired my manicure:
