Nail tech Alexa Rosco wanted to create stiletto nails with a freehand Bollywood design to show off her Eastern Treasures polish collection. The goal for the final look was a creative, dramatic, and eye-catching design. The embellishments added to the stiletto tips gave them an ornamental Bollywood feel.

Tips for creating your own Bollywood nails: Nails should be shaped to stiletto, coffin, or almond shape for an ornamental look. A variation of contrasting bold metallic colors and dramatic color gradients is common in the Bollywood theme. Try half one color and half a contrasting color, or just painting the tips a different shade if you are not too skilled at blending and gradients.
