In In­dia, brides from most com­mu­ni­ties wear bright jewel-toned shades dur­ing cer­e­monies and are laden with em­bel­lish­ments. A well-con­cep­tu­alised nail de­sign should add to the look while lend­ing a fun edge to the elab­o­rate bridal at­tire. As Sonia Srivastava, owner of Tips and Toes, says, “For brides, nail tech­ni­cians must hold spe­cial con­sul­ta­tions to find out what kind of out­fits they are wear­ing and work with those colours.” Both Sonia and Amyn Manji, Di­rec­tor of NailSpa Ex­pe­ri­ence, agree that most brides favour dia­mantes and glit­ter for their nails. 3D flow­ers and feath­ers are other pop­u­lar ingredients.

A pop­u­lar trend on the run­ways as well as the streets, nail art tech­niques are be­com­ing steadily eas­ier to achieve in the com­forts of one’s home. While In­dia may have wo­ken up to the al­lure of nail art some­what late, it has caught up with ease. Ac­cord­ing to Sonia, In­dian nail ser­vices are at par with the West as most of the prod­ucts are sourced from high-end in­ter­na­tional brands.
