Hello lovelies! How was your weekend? Hope you had a great time and that you're starting the week in the best way.
Today I decided it was time to put some motivation to my nail art. You know, December and the Holidays Season brought many excuses to do nail art, and since January began, all my nail art has been dedicated solely to the once per week challenge I'm in. So I thought I'm definitely one to need some excuse, and I found two very good excuses!!
First Mardi Gras is on the 12th February this year and Valentine's Day is on the 14th February (that's every year), so I thought that would give me two wonderful excuses to do some crazy manicures and some girly manicures as well!!

So, What I have for you today is my very first manicure (and may be last?) using cracking polish. Honestly I do not like to wear cracking polish. Eventually I came to the conclusion that the only occasion that might justify putting cracking polish on my nails would be Carnival! (please, this is only my opinion, no offence to all cracking polish lovers <3)
For this manicure I've layered Nail art cracking top coat in Crack me! Pearly pink over Essence Life is a Freeride (see the swatch here). I think the cracking effect is quite visible even if I could not get a good picture with natural light.

I would love to know: Do you celebrate Carnival? Are there any special celebration in your country/ city? If so Would love to know the details!! Do people wear costumes for this occasion? Would you enjoy to see manicures inspired on Carnival Costumes? I'd love to read your comments on the subject!
