Hi Girls, as ravishing as your base polish may be; left on its own it starts to haunt you asking for nail art in a while. Pretty polishes do attract us and while buying we do think- OMG, it’s so pretty that it is beautiful even on its own. But eventually, when you wear them; they scream of nail art within a day of solitude. And you have that insatiable craving of doing atleast a ‘little something’ on it. This always happens with me. No polish looks good enough on its own after maximum a day of application.
The same happened to me when I applied ‘Witchling from Alanna Renne that I reviewed here. In my mind the polish seemed so complete in itself and even on my nails. But a few hours later I got an itch to do ‘little something’ on it. I didn’t know what to do, but I knew it had to be in Orange.
The Orange hex from the polish needed some more orange company. And I knew even a little ‘Orange’ art would just make my nails look ‘popping’. So with brush in my hand already dipped in Orange acrylic paint and a fraction of second to finalise the design before the paint dried on brush, I zeroed on “Fleur-de-Lis’ pattern.
I have always loved those patterns. They are commonly seen on cotton Kurtis or Sarees in India. I had been wishing for a stamping plate with this design for so long. The wait was so long that eventually I ended up drawing it on my own. And now I am thinking I was a fool to wait, they look pretty even free hand.
Even after finishing the pattern on each nail, my Fleur-De-Lis didn’t seem like complete. Let me say it felt like the pattern did not end neatly or did not have a defined crisp end. Whenever in such dilemma I always turn towards Rhinestones or Glitter hexes and they seldom disappoint me.
I used these Rhinestones I got from http://BornPrettystore.com for review. They are great and complete almost any pattern. I am already planning to order a second one. If you wish to order from BPS , use my coupon code HQBQ10 to get a 10% discount site wide.
This is my first Fleur-De-Lis pattern and I am thrilled sharing it with you. Do let me know if you are even half thrilled seeing it.
