Hello Girls, how have you been ? I am doing good. My left hand nails are in pink health and right is almost grown. Looks like I should be able to paint my right hand in a week or so.

The inspiration for today's nail art is not one thing is specific. It is a mix of prominent colors and prints I have seen in and around at various occasions /festivals and weddings.

In India, we enjoy wearing bright bold colors with glam and glitters on special occasions.The attire itself oozes festivity and celebration of the occasion. I totally love it.

This was a quick design and print which I fabricated in my mind mainly picked up from my memory of our festivals. It also got me thinking, if I had a 'Saree' (our traditional dress) of this color combination and print, it would look stunning.

The base I used for this polish is 'Absolutely Yours' from Faces Hi-Shine Range. I love this polish. This brand pleasantly surprised me and this polish exceeded my expectations.It is a warm orange color with copper tones and shimmers. It also has distinct pink shimmer in it which is what makes it different. I adore this color and its very different from all oranges I have in my stash.

I sponged a glitter pink-golden polish at various random places on my nails.I stamped using Sinful Colors Black and Mash plate.

I got a thing for glitters so I did some border glitter placement on my accent nail. I am not sure whether it doomed my nail art or made it pretty. But here it is.
