I didn't set out to do these nails on purpose when I took a break from case reading today but this is what I ended up with. They remind me of a wedding in India for some reason. Do they have that effect on anyone else?? Maybe it's the really pigmented, rich red base, or perhaps it's a silver details, maybe it's the swirls? I don't know. Either way I kind of really like it. The design itself doesn't jump out at you from far away (it's barely noticeable unless you're pretty close to the nails) so it's a more subtle design (as compared to my juggling balls design which couldn't have been more attention grabbing unless I had it tattooed on my face). I googled photos of indian weddings and got the picture to the left from this blog post. Can you understand my inspiration now?
And when I tried to capture it with a flash this really cool contrast happened with the colors that made the design reallllly stand out. I liked the picture so much that I wanted to add it in and share it with you guys. If I had a do over I might consider doing this design with white stamping instead.
