Peach and gold polka dot mani

Hi readers!
Today's post is a simple way to jazz up any mani within minutes, as it requires no special tools nor skills and looks fabulous at the same time. 
It's a polka dot mani with trigger accent, now for those new to nail art trigger accent is when you highlight your thumb and index nail, cool name isn't it?
Without further ado here's the mani which was resting in my phone memory for a long time.  

Colours used:
Peach- Lakmé color crush 23
Gold- Lakmé fast and fabulous 01 gold shimmer

P.s. The dotting tool I used is just the sharpened end of a painting brush, but you can experiment with many things such as Bob pins, empty ball pens etc.

Red and gold with stamping

Hi guys!!
This is a special post because the occasion that these nails were done for is really special..... It's my cousin's wedding and hence to go with my royal blue and red dress I went with red nails with golden accent. It is also special because it is my first attempt at stamping and so excuse me for the not so perfect nails.

The original plan was to have reverse combination on the accent nail but somehow it didn't work out and layer after layer of covering up the flawed stamping led to the weird texture and the last minute flower accents, but somehow it partly satisfies my desire to have a textured Polish, so it works for me;)

Polishes used
Red- 505 Cherry by maybelline express finish
Gold- 01 gold shimmer by lakme fast and fabulous
Stamping plate- Konad m57 I bought this along with a stamper and scraper from flipkart
Flowers- I got these from a beauty products wholesaler in Jaipur

Purple ombre mani

I'm so motivated with the responses for my first post that I actually couldn't wait to come up with the second one asap. Thank you all for the encouragement, it means a lot to me.

So here I have done a purple ombre mami using oriflame dark purple on the thumb and mixing it with lakme white.
It's inspired by my blanket but since it was my first attempt at ombre nails I couldn't manage to eliminate the streaks.
No worries a better one next time :)
