Hello Friends, how are you? Things are good this side. Today I have a vivid nail art exuding royalty. There is something with bright purples which make them look so rich and royal. And when I did read I found out the following:
Purple’s elite status stems from the rarity and cost of the dye originally used to produce it.Purple fabric used to be so outrageously expensive that only rulers could afford it. The dye initially used to make purple came from the Phoenician trading city of Tyre, which is now in modern-day Lebanon. Fabric traders obtained the dye from a small mollusk that was only found in the Tyre region of the Mediterranean Sea. A lot of work went into producing the dye, as more than 9,000 mollusks were needed to create just one gram of Tyrian purple. Since only wealthy rulers could afford to buy and wear the color , it became associated with the imperial classes of Rome, Egypt, and PersiaIn fact, Queen Elizabeth I forbad anyone except close members of the royal family to wear it
Having known this, I am even happier saying ‘These are royal nails’
I paired it with gold to do justice to ‘His Highness Purple’. I used Zoya Finley from their Urban Grunge 2016 Winter Collection and Zoya Solange from their Summer 2013 Pixie Dust Collection.
I love love love Zoya. Did I tell you I am a Zoya fan? I love their colors, quality and even the bottle.
Zoya has some of the most amazing purples I am telling you. They are spread across their various collections like Matte Velvet, Urban Grunge, Pixie Dust etc.
You can buy the MILV decal I used MILV nail decals to achieve this look and this is my favourite decals out of the set they sent me. You can buy them here.
