NailFile PHOTOGRAPHIC NAIL DESIGN COMPETITION

THEME: Mardi Gras & Carnival

DEADLINE 14 October 2019

It’s festival time! Nail techs are invited to get their creative party shoes on, don their masquerade masks, feathers and beads, and create a set of nails that depict the theme of Mardi Gras.

 

But what exactly is Mardi Gras? Originally a Christian feast that culminated on the first day of Lent, Mardi Gras (also known as ‘Fat Tuesday’) has now evolved into a festive, carnival event. The most famous Mardi Gras takes place annually in New Orleans and is a raucous celebration comprising parades, weird and wonderful colourful costumes, sparkly beads, masquerade masks and unusual traditions.
