Today, I was supposed to have "tribal" nails. I turned to Bollywood - as I always do! - for inspiration. I chose a movie filmed in Rajasthan, a part of India known for its beautiful folk art and patterns. Instead of picking a nice tribal pattern, I was enthralled (as I always am) with this beautiful wedding costume that our heroine wears - that's her, peeking out from under her bridal veil.

Her beautiful saree inspired this mani.
This is a base of Sally Hansen Insta Dri Rapid Red stamped with the lovely palm design on Konad M83. I useed Sally Hansen Insta Dri Snappy Sorbet for the stamp. I freehanded the tips with Snappy Sorbet. My other golds or bronzes didn't stamp well over this combination, so I pulled out my "heavy". I used the Sally Hansen Gold Chrome Nail Pen and BM 11 to stamp the accents.
Wow! I love this! It's simple and surprisingly quick (especially using the fast dry polishes). Every time I look down, I want to start singing songs from the movie!
If I ever take this off (haha), another attempt at "tribal" nails is next!
See you soon (at least when this wears off!), Konaddicts!
