Mehndi / Henna Nail Art

Hello there!!
How are you doing? Today I have this mehndi/henna nail art for you. In case you are wondering what mehndi is, its a kind of temporary tattoo which is mainly applied on hands and feet during festivals and marriages in India. You can find more details HERE. Below are some pictures of the mehndi designs I found on google.

And here comes the nail Mehndi nail art....

I used..

I started with a base coat followed by two coats of nude nail paint. After it has dried completely, I used brown acrylic paint and a nail art brush for the design. Finally applied a topcoat and done :)!! I will definitely do this design one more time as you can see my nails are very short here and I am not completely satisfied with these. And that will have a tutorial too :) ..What do you think about these? Do let me know by commenting below:)

Studded Turquoise-Black Nails

Hello there!!
                  How are you doing? It has been a long time since I posted something. I was a little harsh on my nails due to cleaning and stuff while shifting to our new apartment. I didn't want to show off my damaged nails and that's the reason for this loooong break. Now, as they are getting better, I am back on track with this very simple turquoise and black nails. Hope you like it :)!!

I used..

I started off with a base coat and painted my nails with two coats of turquoise nail polish. Then for the ring finger and thumb, I created black stripes using a striper. Then filled one gap with gold nail polish as shown. For the remaining nails I applied black graffiti nail paint and added a round gold stud at the base of the nail. Finally applied a top coat and done!!
So, What do you think about these nails? Do let me know by commenting below:)!!
