Krishna Janmashtami Nails – Peacock Feather Nail Art Tutorial Using Drag Marble Technique!

Hello friends!

Happy Janmashtami!! 🙏🙏🙏

Janmashtami is the day Bal Krishna is worshipped or Krishna in his infant form is worshipped. A naughty baby who would exasperate his mother no end, Krishna has been a charmer since childhood and known to win the hearts of everyone he meets. A statue of baby Krishna is placed in a swing decorated with flowers and soft pillows with richly decorated cushions and women folk sing to him, offer him sweets and pray to him on this day. The festival is celebrated with much pomp and splendour all over India and crowds of people throng Krishna temples to worship the dark Lord.

Krishna is said to have been born 5200 years ago and he is the most popular and also the most powerful incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who is said to have been born to free the Earth from all evil. Cursed that he could never be a king, Krishna is responsible for the making of kings and their empires. His ready-wit, his cunning and at times even his manipulation is a lesson of learning for people. Dark as the night, Krishna (Krsna) is named so as his name means ‘dark’. His discourse with Arjuna, the third Pandava just before the war of Mahabharata gave the Hindus one of their most sacred texts, the Bhagvad Gita. Dressed in a yellow loin-cloth, with a flute to his lips, standing with one leg crossed over the other at the ankles, Lord Krishna is compassionate, all-knowing and the embodiment of Dharma or righteousness.

Krishna Janmashtami Nails – Peacock Feather Nail Art Tutorial Using Drag Marble Technique!

While the Lord wears many ornaments, his constant accessory is a peacock feather in his hair. Have you ever wondered why Lord Krishna wears a peacock feather? Does the feather have some deeper meaning or significance? And why only a peacock feather? Why not any other feather or some ornament? There have been many tales surrounding the reason Lord Krishna wears a peacock feather. Let’s take a look at some of them:

1. A symbol of purity

Lord Krishna had mainly 8 wives known as the Ashtabharya and had 16,000 junior wives with whom, he did not share any marital relations. Also, Krishna is known to be the Askalitha Brahmacharya, one who is eternally a Brahmacharya as despite being married his aim was never any sensual pleasures and only the betterment of the world. Thus, Krishna is considered to be completely pure and free from any sensual desire. Peacocks in India are considered to be a symbol of purity. There is a mythological belief (albeit false) that peacocks do not use sex for reproduction but rather, the peahen drinks the tears of the peacock to conceive. Thus, Krishna is as pure as a peacock and that is what the feather signifies.

2. The colour of nature

A peacock feather is said to have all the 7 colours of nature and it appears bluish in the day and black at night. Ether, which covers all of us also appears blue by daytime and black by night. Lord Krishna, also called the dark skinned one is represented by both these colours. Thus, Krishna wears the peacock which symbolises the entire range of colours humans are made of and that each one of us a part of the almighty. As God, he is formless but to mortals, he appears Blue by day and Black by night, making him just like a peacock feather.

3. His love for dance

There’s a story that says that once, Lord Krishna decided to play the flue in the forest. So melodious was his music that the peacocks were enamoured and began to dance with him. All beings of the forest were completely spell bound. The peacocks danced till they grew tired but Lord Krishna went on dancing for days. Finally, when he stopped dancing, the spell was broken. But the peacocks were so full of happiness and gratitude that the king of peacocks went up to Lord Krishna and as gratitude, asked him to accept him feathers as they were his most prized possession. He dropped some feathers on the ground and Lord Krishna accepted his humble offering. Since then, Lord Krishna always wears a peacock feather in his hair.

4. The rain God

Peacocks love rain and dance during the monsoons. The sight of a sky completely covered by dark clouds is enjoyed by them and makes them happy. Similarly, Krishna being dark-skinned resembles the dark, rain-heavy clouds. When the peacocks see Lord Krishna, he reminds them of rain and thus, makes them very happy. Also, his music coupled with his dark skin helps them dance better. thus as gratitude, they offer him their feathers which he happily accepts and places in his hair.

While these are some of the most popular concepts, there is also the concept of Maya or Illusion that is promoted. According to a Quora user, this is why Krishna wears a peacock feather in his hair:

“The main teaching of Lord Krishna is that our whole life and the whole manifested universe is His ‘Maya’. He continuously tells His great disciple Arjuna to realize His presence underlying seemingly unrelated events and various living organisms populating the universe.

Even though Lord Krishna also manifested inside His own ‘Maya’, He was never controlled or disturbed by its powers.

The feathers of peacock exemplify Lord’s Maya in a manner which human mind can try to grasp. The brilliant colors of peacock do not arise from the correspondingly colored pigments. Instead, they arise from the phenomenon called ‘structural coloration’. The light waves entering the different thickness of keratin layers on peacock feathers get out of phase and undergo interference. The resulting light wave patterns give the beautiful play of colors which the human eyes see. The ‘actual’ color is just deep brown pigment which occurs in the background of these keratin layers.

Thus, Lord Krishna wears a brilliant example of His own Maya in His crown and stimulates our intelligence to understand the fact that the whole universe is a diverse manifestation of one single divinity. Thus, we are also supposed to understand the nature of Maya continuously during our life so that we do not get carried away and suffer due to its influence. If we also start wearing this idea in our mind, like Krishna wears its symbolically in His crown, then we can also enjoy this life in the manner Lord Krishna wants us to live.

However, only the divine being Himself can fully know His intentions.”

Valentines Day 2017 Nail Art!

Hello friends!

Valentines week is ended and Creative Nails tried to create nail art for all the special days. Now its time for the final mani of Valentines Day. Wanted it to be as simple as possible.

I have applied El Corazon bio gel base coat and used a beautiful baby pink shade Malibu from Dance Legend as base color and stamped over it using clear jelly stamper bought from IndianLacquerHolics. The stamping plate was old and I guess I had bought it from eBay. Also used HK girl top coat bought from Puja ( shopcutenails).

Here is the final mani. Hope you like it. Do leave your comments.

Bean Therapy Dark Chocolate Wrapper Nail Art!!

Hello friends!

Chocolate!! Who doesn’t like them? From children to teens and adults to senior citizens everyone loves chocolates. For some it’s a dessert and for others to remember their love or to forget the heartbreak. Whatever the reason may be people will find some reason to buy them. Among the different varieties of chocolates my favorite is DARK CHOCHOLATE!

Here are some of the benefits of dark chocolates (make them as your excuse if needed ;-))

  1. It is rich in fibre, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese and few other minerals. Thus making it nutritious.
  2. It is powerful source of anti-oxidants.
  3. It is considered to lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
  4. Studies have shown that when taken in moderation daily it helps to lose weight. ( Yippee!!)

Mouth-watering taste combined with health benefits, what more can one ask for?

For further information visit: https://authoritynutrition.com/7-health-benefits-dark-chocolate/

So here I am today sharing with you the nail art inspired by ‘BEAN THERAPY’ chocolates gifted by a friend. To those who don’t know about Bean Therapy chocolates here is some information.

At Bean Therapy you get to taste Mumbai based chef and chocolatier Sanjoy Solomon’s chocolate offerings. These hand-made chocolate bars are combined with the local ingredients from different parts of India. Adrak Chiraunji, Black pepper and mango, Ellaichi Saunf, Guntur Chilly, Himalayan Rock Salt etc. are a few varieties. Belgian chocolate infused with all these tongue tingling and exotic flavours when savoured gives a heavenly feeling. A combination of flavors which probably you have never experienced before.

What else, do you ask? Each chocolate is packed in a unique, classy and rich looking wrapper which makes it even better for gifting. To be honest with you guys it’s the packaging that the chocolates come with that inspired me to create today’s nail art.

Here is the Tutti-Frutti flavour inspired nail art. The vibrant colors that appear on the wrapper when transferred on to the nails, creates a fusion that makes the on-looker ogle at those gorgeous nails.

The flavors and the wrapper of the chocolate appeared so good at Bean Therapy website that I had to buy few more varieties from them.

Services provided by Bean Therapy is commendable. The chocolates were shipped immediately the next day I ordered and I received them in 3-4 days.

So what are you guys waiting for? Go ahead and order some for you and your family. I bet you won’t regret it.

Free hand Op Art On Nails!!

Hello friends!

Recently I met my best buddy Deeps and she was showing me the pics of her new hobby – Op art combined with doodles.

Op art, short for optical art, is a style of visual art that uses optical illusions. And doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be composed of random and abstract lines, generally without ever lifting the drawing device off of the paper.

Though my friend is a beginner I loved her art. She suggested me to try them on nails. Though there are stamping plates with optical illusion and doodles she wanted me to do a free hand nail art. Here is my first free hand Op Art  on nails! 🙂

This occasion is incomplete without this popular and my favorite song from movie Agneepath – Deva Shree Ganesha.

Deva Shree Ganesha..(x16)

Jwaala si chalti hai aankhon mein jiske bhi
Dil mein tera naam hai
Parwaah hi kya uska aarambh kaisa hai aur kaisa parinaam hai
Dharti ambar sitaare hai
Usski nazaare utaarein
Darr bhi uss se dara re
Jiski rakhwaliya re karta saaya tera

Deva Shree Ganesha..(x8)

Ho…
Teri bhakti ka vardaan hai
Jo kamaaye woh dhanwaan hai
Bin kinare ki kashti hai woh
Deva, Tujhse jo anjaan hai
Yun tto mooshak sawari teri
Sab pe hai pehredaari teri
Paap ki aandhiyaan na kaha
Kabhi jyoti na haari teri
Apni taqdeer ka woh, khud sikander huaa re
Bhool ke yeh jahaan re, kiski silien ya haare
Saath paaya tera hey

Deva Shree Ganesha..(x4)

Ho teri dhuli ka teeka kiye
Deva jo bhakt tera jiye
Usey amrit ka hai moh hai kya
Hass ke vish ka woh pyaala piye
Teri mahima ki chhaaya tale
Kaal ke rath ka pahiyaa chale
Ek chingaari pratishodh se
Khadi ravaan ki lanka jale

Shatruo’n ki qataarein ik akele se haare
Kann bhi parvat huaa re
Shlok bann ke jahaan re naam aaya tera hey!

Deva shree ganesha..(x8)

Ganpati Bappa Moreya

Twameva Mata cha Pita twameva

Floral Print Nail Art!

Hello friends!

Yesterday night just before bed time my bare nails asked me to color them! Since I was sleepy din’t wanted to spend much time in doing my nails. So started with drag marbling technique. But somehow I messed it up. :-(:-( Had no patience to remove everything and start all over again. So just went on doing patch work with acrylic paint and the end result you could see here!
