Distressed Mardi Gras Mani

Hi everyone! I couldn't resist doing another Mardi Gras themed mani! This time, I created a distressed look (once again, following this tutorial from Chalkboard Nails), but instead of finishing it with black I used a foily gold. I started with a base of OPI Thanks a Windmillion. Then I used American Apparel African Violet and Orly Lucky Duck to add the distressed strokes. I finished it off by adding some distressed strokes of Zoya Peterhof Palace (aka Ziv). I thought it was such a lovely combo of colors and the gold topped it off perfectly.

Some fun with my new Olloclip! MACROS! *Cuticles blurred out for the safety of everyone involved.* Ain't nobody wanna see dat!

What do you guys think of extreme macro? LOL! I think it is going to be fun to use to pick up detail in finishes that my camera often fails at picking up. Thanks for looking everyone!
