Creative musings in bright colors

Saree-Inspired

Last weekend, I attended two weddings. The second one was an Indian wedding, complete with sarees! The bride and groom were kind enough to get me and some of the other “white girls” sarees for the event! Mine was blue, burgundy, and gold. Of course, I had to make matching nails!

The saree was predominately a beautiful blue/teal color, with purple in the borders and a bold golden design. I didn’t copy the design (very intricate!) but I did use the colors in this nail art.

    • thanks! And no…just gold base, wait for the polish to dry, add striping tape and work quickly (one nail at a time) for the blue and purple before pulling off the tape. top coat and voila! maybe…45 minutes (not including dry time).

  6. That is stunning! I love those colours together 🙂 xxx

  7. Your nails look perfect! Today I did my first real striping tape mani but with just two colours. But one day, I want to nails like yours! ButI probably need to let mine grow a little more to have enough space for many stripes of striping tape .

    • awesome! yah, growing my nails out did help with design and spacing (particularly for striping tape and watermarbles) but it can be cute on short nails too!

  8. Love this design. 😀

  9. This is stunning! 😀
