Paisley patterns always look beautiful whether they are printed on clothes or used in Mehendi (Henna) patterns. For the second day of nail challenge by Indian Lacquer Lovers, I chose paisley pattern for my nails.

#33DC Tape Manicure

Yay!! It's Friday. I was eagerly waiting for this weekend. I have to attend a blogger meet tomorrow, which I am really excited about! 

Here is the Tape manicure which I did today, for the third day of the 33 Day nail art challenge. 


#31DC2013 Day 25: Inspired by a Fashion

Today's post is inspired by Fashion. I love wearing scarves, so I thought of doing this nail art based on a scarf. I found this lovely scarf on Tory Burch's website. This is Tory Burch's Cheetah Print scarf. I can never get bored of animal prints...

#31DC2013 Day 24: Inspired by a Book

Hey everyone, today I am sharing another look for the challenge. This manicure is based on a book "Spoiled" written by Heather Cocks. It is a story about sixteen year old Molly and her struggle for adjustment in a new rich & famous life. I liked the book and thought to recreate the cover page.


#33DC Most used color polish: Sally Hansen Celeb City

It was quite a tedious task to pick the most used shade as there were many I keep on using again and again. A lot of pinks and purples were on my list when I started looking in my stash. Celeb City is the most used unique one. So, I picked it. I LOVE this shade. The foil finish and the silver beauty...

#31DC2013 Day 23: Inspired by a Movie

Hey everyone, deciding a movie for this post was a bit difficult. I wanted to do the manicure based on a movie I really enjoyed watching. After a lot of thinking I decided on "Bridesmaids", one of the best comedy movies.

#31DC2013 Day 22: Inspired by a Song

Hey everyone, today am sharing a sparkly look for the challenge. For the theme "Inspired by a song" I picked Katy Perry's Firework. The video song is full of fireworks. I didn't want to use the stamping or brushes to create the fireworks. Sponging seemed to be a nice idea to create the look of the dark sky lit with fireworks.

#31DC2013 Day 21: Inspired by a Color

Hey everyone, today's post mark my THREE HUNDRED posts on this blog :) Phew! I have written so much..lol. I tried to make this post special and added the needed bling to my nails for today's theme. 

Color inspirations are many but I love blue-green combinations the most. I had a beautiful glitter shade with this combination. So, I thought of using that for a drip manicure.

#31DC2013 Day 16: Tribal Print

Hey everyone, today is day sixteenth of the nail art challenge. Phew! 15 more to go...


Today's theme is Tribal nails. I did my acrylic paint version of tribal nails earlier. It is sort of difficult for me to create freehand details for a manicure. I used nail paints for the base this time (unlike earlier) and acrylic paint only for the lines.
