Two weeks ago I attended an Indian wedding. Well just the reception, although I wish I could have attended at least some of the ceremony! Regardless, I fell in love with some of the traditions that come with a large Indian celebration. The choreographed dances by like every relative, the music and of course the delicious food! My gosh, it was fantastic. It’s hard to believe that only 2 years ago I barely liked any Indian food and now I not only love the food, but I’m kind of obsessed with the culture. Especially the dancing.
This wedding may have been the unconscious inpiration for my nails today. Jewel tones and gold always make me think of saris. I love the beautiful colors on saris. Which could be considered a little odd considering my personal taste in fashion runs more towards the darker, subtler solids as opposed to bright and shiny prints. Saris just manage to keep it classy.
It may also have been inspired by the gold polish I got at Sally Beauty Supply about 3 weeks ago. When I am unsure about a color, or think I won’t use it very often I sometimes get it in Sally’s tiny sample sizes. It’s not any cheaper than just buying cheap brands like Wet N Wild, but it makes me feel like I’m saving money. Don’t worry, I know it’s a delusion.
It’s a very sparse gold with small square glitter combined with larger hexagonal glitter. I’m very surprised by how often I have been doing an accent nail as of late. I never used to be a big fan, but I think in the end I’m attracted to not having to choose between multiple colors.

These are the people who took me! It was their boss’s son’s wedding, and I think we all had a lot of fun. I may have had about 3 Shirley Temples. They’re pretty much my favorite. You just can’t beat grenadine when it comes to taste!
