my tribe!



137 minutes was what it took to get this artsy piece of work. Most people think it's fake nails but it's not. It's not even nail polish; a special kind of paint that undergoes a long procedure of coating one coat at a time, drying under the UV lights and then proceeding with the next coat. It's a rigorous process of coating and drying and coating again and drying again until the artwork is complete. And it can't be erased by a remover which means this will stay on your nails for as long as the nail outgrows itself. 
By the way, I didn't do this. Shree Krishna from Fancy Nails Spa at Lazimpat did this for me. He also works with Elements Nails Spa at Jawalakhel. It was for the magazine and I asked him to do tribal prints. Looking at  the work, can you tell that it's his first time trying such intricately detailed art? He usually does french manicure or elegant floral designs. But he managed to do it with so much diligence, it could'nt have been more perfect. 


If you want to get any form of nail art, you can contact him at 9851132433. He's your man!
