Monday Mani ' 2 States '

So, the giveaway is over and the winners have been contacted...I had a wonderful time reading the comments and especially the ones who said they would like anything I chose for them. So sweet you people are <3 I promise to do better giveaways in future :D

On to the main topic...

A few days back, I was reading this completely entertaining book by Chetan Bhagat called ' 2 States: The story of my marriage '. It is a story of a couple from different religions, the problems they face and how they overcome all the hurdles to get married. Totally filmy but super fun :D



 In some ways, it is the story of my marriage too ( minus the live-in ) It totally brought back to me memories of my dating days, struggle with both sets of parents and the problems I faced in the initial days of marriage due to total change in people, place, religion, culture and language. So I tried translating all those days into this mani....




The barbed wire is not only denoting borders of 2 Indian states but also differences in culture, religion and language. The heart rhinestone and the rings clearly denote that inspite of these differences, we managed to get married and have our happily ever after :D 

The base is Zoya Purity.

The barbed wire design is done using BM 323 plate and Street Wear Shine Divine polish in Black Divine.

The entwined rings are from Cheeky Summer Collection plate CH54 stamped with Kleancolor Metallic Red.

The heart shaped rhinestone came in a wheel with various nail art deco. 






Yeah, the black bled inspite of letting it dry for quite ome time and using Seche Vite :(
