Richly Indian


So yeah, not sure if you've heard...but I currently live in India. (you know, that country you call for tech support?) I know that I haven't done a lot of India-inspired nail art, so I decided to do today's design for you! I'll admit, I first did this design on my friend Ruby, the most adorable girl that used to work in my office (I'm so sad she doesn't anymore). She's 24 years old, but looks about 14, and unbelievably to me has 2 kids!! She would always joke with me and say things were supaaah. (super). She's honestly one of my favorite people in India, she cracks me up! (and I'm not the only one- everyone likes Ruby!). She was going to her 'native' (this is how people here refer to their hometown) for her birthday, and wanted me to paint her nails, so I did! This was the design that I did for her, and I liked it so much, I decided to do it on myself.


I used:

Brown: OPI Suzi Likes Cowboys
Gold: China Glaze 2030
Coral/Orange: Lotus Herbals Orange Alert
Topcoat: Seche Vite

  3. The design reminds me of henna! I'm a recent follower so I had no idea you were residing in India! This is interesting to me because I'm Indian...but I will restrain myself and not ask you a million and a half questions :)

  5. That is gorgeous! I don't know why I didn't connect you mentioning India a few times with living there. That's just how I don't connect the dots I guess. Lol have a great day!

  6. Gorgeous! I wouldn't have thought of it as a strictly indian design, I am used to the more intricate henna tatoo like ones. I like this style a lot better.

  9. You should update your other blog, about living in India! I moved to Germany from the States recently, and my family/friends love reading my blog chronicling my experiences living in Europe.
