Crocus Flowers

Hello Lovely people. Today's nail art is inspired by Crocus flowers. Crocus are pretty flowers which belong to iris family. This design I created using Zoya's Mira as the base purple and then using Zoya's Purity, Willa and Trixie I created the crocus flowers freehand with a thin nail art brush.

Here is a picture of crocus flower in Spring bloom

Indian Independence Day

Hello Friend's. Today is INDIA's 70th Independence Day. I wanted to create something unique for the day. And I came up with creating a free-hand Mahatma Gandhi on my nails. This is my way of giving a tribute for the great Indian leader who led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Hope you all will like my humble attempt at this design. You can see my all previous Indian Independence Day nail art HERE.

A very HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY to all my fellow Indians. JAI HIND!

Pineapple Nails

Hello lovelies, today's nail art is to satisfy some delicious summer cravings. Pineapples are on trend this summer season and I have been adding lots of pineapple prints to my wardrobe. Hence it was obvious to make some pretty pineapples on my nails too. I made these pineapples and stripes free hand using fine nail art brushes and added dots using a dotting tool. The polishes I used are all Zoya's - Purity, Willa, Darcy and Tilda. What's your favorite fruit for summer cravings?

Kawaii Nails

Have you heard of Kawaii characters? They are cute characters from Japanese culture (Kawaii in Japanese means cute). With short nails I was thinking what nail art I can do and then I saw some cute Kawaii characters and thought...that should be easy and ta da... here they are my cute Kawaii nails done in pastels. I painted these free hand with different polishes. Orange - unnamed polish from Charlotte Russe, Pink - Zoya's Jordan, Yellow - Sally Hansen's Mellow Yellow, Pale Blue - Zoya's Blu and Lavender - OPI's In Pursuit of Purple.
