1. Cover the nail with a green glitter polish.


2. With a fine-tipped brush and black paint, make crossing diagonal lines to create an outline for the diamonds.


3. Fill in alternating diamond shapes with black paint.


4. Using acrylic, sculpt a Mardi Gras mask and decorate it as you wish. Use clear acrylic to attach it to the nail. Seal with a clear top coat.
