"The Big Easy,” aka New Orleans, is notorious for its nightlife, street performances, Cajun food, and highly-celebrated Mardi Gras celebration.

OPI has taken all of the elements that make New Orleans what it is and has created a collection of 12 lacquers that encompass a day-in-the life of this one-of-a-kind, colorful society. Learn how to re-create the "Big Easy” look here, using GelColors from the New Orleans Collection by OPI.
