Libertine Fall 2013 Nail Art Takes Us To Mardi Gras In New Orleans (PHOTOS)

I'd give just about anything for a one-way flight to New Orleans -- even if it's to dance in the rain on Bourbon Street. But if you're stuck in the Northeast like me or on a different side of the globe, why not take a mental voyage to The Big Easy with this nail art idea.

Inspired by art and the collages of color found in Libertine's fall 2013 collection, Butter London's global color ambassador Katie Hughes created this fun beaded manicure. She started with a "liquid gold" nail polish called Marbs (available this summer), then glued the same crystals found in the runway designs on top. The textured nail art instantly reminded me of the beads that get tossed around at Mardi Gras. But you won't have to show any body parts to get this nail look!
