NOTW : Frangipani inspired Nail Art with a touch of Colorbar Metallic Nail Lacquer

Sunday, June 28, 2015

Rather than doing a NOTD post, I thought of doing an NOTW post, as I paint my nails on Sunday and sport it for the whole week. If there is a party I need to attend in the middle of the week and my current nails would not match with the outfit I am planning to wear, only then I change my nail paint in the middle of the week.

Why I drew this flower specifically, well there are quite a few Frangipani trees in my office which look so pretty in full bloom with a pleasant alluring perfume. I do refrain myself to pluck a few of them. On Friday,  I just could not resist myself while getting in office, I had planned to keep some at my desk for the whole week. Just as I went near the tree to pluck a couple of them, the security guard gave me a nasty look, and started whistling as if I was chopping down the tree. I was so mad, that I would have flipped a finger at the guard, but NO, a Lady doesn't flip a finger does she. Sadly I continued towards my office building without any flower. Hence this week I am sporting a floral motif nail art, inspired by the Plumeria / Frangipani / Champa ( in Bengali), I am definitely going to do a "in your face" to the security guard.

I had bought the Colorbar Metallic Nail Lacquer during my wedding last year in the shade Pink Smith and Shy Green. I so like the texture of these metallic nail polish. Its of a little watery consistency which makes the application very smooth. I had wore it many times with my Indian ethnic wear. This time I thought of mixing metallic nail polish with regular ones to add a little touch of glam.

After applying base coat, the flower is painted with the Maybelline Coloreshow Porcelain Party and Sweet Sunshine. To dramatize the flower, Colorbar Pink Smith is used at the core. On the outer empty spaces, it is filled up by the Colorbar Shy Green.

Hope you had a great weekend. I had an amazing one. Details about it coming up soon.
