“Love of Beauty is Taste. The creation of Beauty is art” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Women are true artists, with body as a canvas they expresses their strong sense of individuality, independence and style. And entire world works in unison to cater to their every whim and fancy. Billion dollar fashion and cosmetic industries across the globe are dedicated to the singular task helping them express themselves.
In today’s world where personal style signature is definition of fashion it is important for us to understand what works for us and how to use our assets to maximum advantage.I personally am a hands person. Soft beautifully manicured, long fingered hands are my weakness. You can tell so much about a person just by looking at their hands. Like in Victorian times hands were used to signify purity and white buffed and clean nails were most coveted. In Ancient Greek and Egyptian traditions certain types of nail colours were reserved for royalty and breech of this norm was punishable by death. Luckily for us, no such restrictions exist. We can paint our nails nine ways to Sunday without threat of death! We only have to fear of committing fashion faux pax.
Gone are the days when matching saree and matching nail paint were heights of fashion. Now intricate art patterns are devised to grace our nails for every occasion. And pox be on you if you colour your complete nail in one colour. But don’t worry, being a fashionista is simpler than it sounds. With the right nail paints and bit of creativity its easy to create red carpet looks. The Fashion Moguls are still fascinated by citrus juicy colours, though the palate this season is little subdued. A more elegant translation of last season’s collection, the dominant hues this year will me Nectarine, Moroccan Blue, African Violet, Emerald green, Lemon Zest.
Use these colours and your inner creativity and bring out the fashion diva!
