33 Days Challenge - Day 9: Indian

I needed a lot of thinking before I came up with an idea for today's entry in the 33DC. According to Debbie - The Crumpet, this theme can be interpreted as either Indian - Native American or Indian - from India. So after considering the options and googling for inspiration, I decided to go with Indian - from India. So today's entry is an Indian print.
zoya Jacqueline Mentality Proper

I started with two heavy coats of Zoya Jacqueline, a perfect off-white creme. It has a nice flowing formula and is very pigmented, especially for a white/off-white polish. It doesn't look chalky and it actually levels itself nicely. I think I found me a new favorite nail art base! Swatches show two coats relatively heavy and no top.

I then took Mentality Proper and my Cheeky Jumbo Plate C and just went wild a little. I love those Henna patterns and I love the way Proper looks, a redish brown, almost like real henna. I am totally happy with this mani, even though I pressed my stamper slightly too hard and managed to smear the design in some spots.
