Hello, I am here with ‘Poinsettia Nail art’ and just to tell you this is also one of the elements of Christmas. But since I never do nail art without some background or story, I did some reading. I wanted to know how and why is Poinsettia related to Christmas and tradition.
But I what I am still confused is which story do I share? There are so many and most of them are lengthy :P. So here is the shortest one I could find:
Poinsettias are one of the most popular Christmas decorations around, with more than $200 million in sales every holiday season.One interpretation of the plant is as a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem, the heavenly body that led the three magi, or wisemen, to the place where Christ was born. A Mexican legend tells of a girl who could only offer weeds as a gift to Jesus on Christmas Eve. When she brought the weeds into a church, they blossomed into the beautiful red plants we know as poinsettias, known as Flores de Noche Buena in Mexico (Spanish for “flowers of the holy night”).
The nail are all freehand expect for pinky and forefinger where I stamped. The base on them is Colorshow Bold Gold and the stamping is done using Konad Special Red.
I wanted to give depth to my Poinsettia so I used two hues of red, one dark and the other bright. I am not sure if I have been able to demonstrate it correctly. I think my nails don’t speak my mind completely. These flowers were much more prettier and real in my mind.
But this is what I got atleast for now. Tell me your thoughts on them 🙂
