I have some very showy, jewel encrusted nails for you today that I actually did to show support to some friends of mine who are in Kochi, India right now, about to attend a red carpet movie premier for a screen play they wrote and directed, which was filmed around my home town of Canberra, Australia.
My daughter has a very small part in the movie, and as such we were invited to the red carpet premier in India, but unfortunately we were not able to make it. So to show my support, I wore these nails today, inspired by Indian wedding jewellery, which I pretended I was wearing to attend the red carpet event.
The base polish is Ozotic pro 621. While I know the Picture Polish Bridget is suppose to be the same polish, I find the picture polish version more orange and not as intense. I'll have to do you a comparison one day. The jewels are Swarovski crystals that I hand placed with gold bullions and the silver dotted lines are individual nail sticker strips that I was gifted.
Now let me tell you a bit more about the movie. The movie is called Salt Bridge and it's a Hindi movie, and I'm not even certain what the story is about, other than it's a drama about an migrant Indian family in a town called Salt Bridge and the various relationships they make, particularly the main lead man with an Australian woman and how the local community reacts. At least that's my take on it from a few conversations and watching a few scenes being recorded. I hope to see it released in Australia where I can sit and watch it through with the English captions, then I'll finally know what it's about.
Like I mentioned above, my daughter has a small role in the movie, playing the main female lead's daughter. That role is played by New Zealand actor Chelsea Preston Crayford, which Aussies might remember her from playing the brothel owner in Underbelly: Razor, which she won the silver logie for in 2012. I'm told that both my mum and I make an appearance in the background of a few scenes too, I think we were in the wrong places at the right time!
This is a photo from the Salt Bridge website, which shows my cutie daughter feeding the swans and ducks with the main lead actor, Rajeev Khandelwal.
