I would like to begin the post today by pointing out the fact that some traditions ,certain customs can never be completely done away with. They never loose their luster. And why not, somethings are worth preserving. Isn’t it? One of such traditions in India is the Banarasi Saree. Yes, they are much more than a fashionable garment.
Every women, atleast till our mom’s generation have been proud owner of quite a few Banarase Sarees. It has been a pride possession for women for ages. Its like gold of garments. These gaudy and heavy sarees are literally preserved and kept in muslin clothes to be passed on to generations.These sarees are among the finest sarees in India and are known for their gold and silver brocade or zari, fine silk and opulent embroidery.
Today’s nail art is inspired by one of such sarees that I saw in my mom’s wardrobe when I was small. My mom has a good collection of Banarasi Sarees, that she sacredly keeps safe and dusts out on certain occasions.
My mom has a beautiful lustrous wine coloured Banarasi silk saree with classic small damask gold work on the body of the saree and heavy gold part on pallu.
I don’t have a pic of the saree but I guess my explanation should be good for you to imagine the richness I am trying to narrate. My inspiration comes from there.
The polish I used is ‘Dark Window’ from Krizia. Its is scattered holo beauty which shines gold, red, blue, green and what not. The stamping plate is BPS 016 and can be bought here and use discount code HQBQ10 for 10% off. The stamping polish is MDU Gold. The gold ultra holo sponged on tip is King Midas from Starilly.
I love dark vampy holos, its unfortunate that I barely wear them. The polish is absolute stunner but it long to dry, even after fast drying top coat.
Isn’t the polish gorgeous though? And I am swoon by the nail art, aren’t you? Its so gorgeous and royal, what’s say?
