I designed this Henna nails for day 1 of Indian Festivity challenge 2014 – Karwa Chauth.
Karwa Chauth is an Indian Festival celebrated by Married Indian women. They fast on this day and pray to lord for well being and long life for their husband. This day is very auspicious for every Indian married women. They love to wear Indian traditional dress, apply henna (Mehndi), wear lot of traditional jewelery and accessories. Taking one of this Element – Henna as inspiration, I have designed today’s Indian nail art – Henna Nails.
Maybelline Glitter Mania – Red Carpet
Henna Nails water decal from Born Pretty store. (From Here.)
Seche Vite Top Coat
Starting with Maybelline Glitter Mania Red Carpet as base for this Henna nails.
Maybelline Glitter Mania Red Carpet is a texture nail polish. It has red texture base with hint of golden glitter. This color is perfect for Indian nail art themes. Red and golden are Indian traditional colors symbolic for Indian married women. So I found Maybelline glitter mania Red carpet perfect base color for my Henna nails.
Henna Nails Water Decal from Born Pretty Store:
I loved how intricate henna nail design this water decal has. During Indian festivals, we are left with very less time for detailed manicure. It was very quick and easy to use this Henna nails water decals. And still manage an intricate henna nail art.
We can design 10 nails with this sheet of decal. Weather you have small nail length or long, this decal fits perfectly all nail size and shape. Cut the design for desired width, remove plastic coating. Dab little wet cotton on back side and apply the henna nails decal on the nails. Seal the design with top coat. And you can get intricate henna nails ready within few minutes.
If you like the textured look on the nails, you may stick the henna nail decal on semi wet nail polish base and skip applying top coat. I have applied here Seche vite top coat on all the nails except last finger to show you the comparison.
This is very traditional Indian nail art. Hope you liked this quick and elegant Henna nails.
