Diwali Crackers and Celebration Nail Art

October 21, 2014 Setu 19 Comments

Hello Gorgeous! Its Diwali time, a festival of fun, frolic,color and crackers; making it the 'king' of festivals :).I would say 'Like Mango is to Fruits, Diwali is to Festival'.The shops are decorated, houses are cleaned, attendance is reduced to half in office ,malls are flooded with crowd, maids asking for bonus etc are characteristic features of this festival.

So, I am wearing Diwali not only on my sleeves but also on my nails :). Nails are very important part of grooming and definitely separates you from crowd.

On nails I am wearing some crackling diwali crackers and some blingy festivity. The color used is neon-ish magenta color from Sinful Colors called 'Dream On'. It is a bright color and this hue is considered auspicious too. You can use any color you wish, it should just reflect your feelings and your mood :). Nails have a very big heart girls, they welcome all colors very graciously if you apply it right; so don't be scared to experiment.

There are so very many elements of Diwali that I would have to literally borrow nails of at least 10 friends to depict all of them and to do justice to them :). So I picked up my favorite elements and you can totally pick any of yours.

I feel Diya, Kandils and crackers capture the essence of Diwali in quite holistic manner so they were my picks. They are all drawn using an ordinary fine painting brush which is available at any stationary shop. One can trim it down equally from all sides reducing the bristles and hence making them thin, like I did. The brush can now be used for fine work. All the drawing on the base polish is done with acrylic paints which is again available in any stationary shop. No, it doesn't get washed off with water if you top coat it. You don't need an expensive Top Coat if you don't have one. A simple clear polish will do the trick :).

Diwali without some glam and glitter is too boring!!!I incorporated loose glitters to decorate my Diya, Kandil and Crackers. Such glitters are available in any craft shop. I used fine end of toothpick to pick each spec of glitter and place them on nails. It should be placed while the base is not fully dry, otherwise the glitter will slip down our curvy nails. Now your nail art is finished, and you should apply the top coat/clear polish to 'Seal the Deal' :).

Now as you see nail art is not expensive, not difficult and every thing you need is absolutely available around you. So as I always say to readers of my blog- You don't need 'Skill' but 'Will' to do Nail Art. Get creative this Diwali and do not keep your nails deprived of this festival :)
