New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) This season, forget about boring pinks, browns and maroons for painting your nails. Be bold and play with the wackiest nail enamels available in the town - red and black and even green and gold.
'Nowadays customers are experimenting with colours like red, black and white. They do not mind flaunting such nail enamels with confidence', said Smith, a manicurist at Sylvie' Saloon here.
Black nail polish has always been associated with the rock lovers and with those who love to be different.
'I have always loved the black nail paint. Though it is very difficult to carry such a bold colour, it surely helps in drawing attention to your hands, said Neha Madan a college student and rock music lover.
For the people who fancy red, there is good news: various shades of the colour are available to suit Indian complexions. This is quite a contrast from the recent past when red had virtually gone out of fashion.
Sonika, a beauty specialist at L'oreal Saloon said: 'Fortunately Indian markets are flooded with various shades of red and this gives customers the freedom to choose the right colour and carry it with confidence.'
'It is very important to choose the perfect red shade to match the tone of your hands. Not everyone is bestowed with beautiful hands, so the choice becomes really tough,' she added.
Apart from red and black, women are also experimenting with various shades of blue, green, mauve, gold and silver. All these are different from the conventional nail paints and are quite popular among the younger crowd.
'The punk look is in fashion, so playing with bold paints and colours simply get you the right attention especially if one follows fashion trends religiously', said design student Shruti Khare.
Although bold colours are very popular among teenagers, this isn't so with women who are in the 30s. Their comfort levels start and end with browns and pinks - and experimentation is certainly not the word for them.
'In our saloon, only 20 percent of our customers ask for bold colours on their nails. The rest prefer to follow the conventional norm,' said Azhar a makeup specialist at the Meghna Beauty Salon.
