Indian Festival - 3D Rakhi Nails...

Hello Everyone,

Today I share with you my 3D Rakhi Nails. Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is the Hindu festival that celebrates brotherhood and love. It is celebrated on the full moon in the month of Shraavana in the lunar calendar.

The word Raksha means protection, whilst Bandhan is the verb to tie. Traditionally, during the festival sisters tie a rakhi, a bracelet made of threads, around their brothers' wrists to celebrate their relationship. This thread, which pulsates with sisterly love and sublime sentiments, is rightly called the Rakhi. This ritual not only strengthens the bond of love between brothers and sisters, but also transcends the confines of the family. Have a look my 3D Rakhi Nails :

I used Zoya Linds as base two coats. For 3d Rakhi I used studs, flat pearls, caviar beads, fimos etc.

Lumba Rakhi


The day is all about raksha or protection, not just for self but for the dear ones, for peaceful existence of the human race. Each ritual that is followed has a significance. The sisters seek love from their brothers, the brothers seek courage and endurance. People worship the Gods of water, the basis of life.



I Made various type of Rakhi. On pointy and ring finger I made traditional Rakhis and on pinky I made a Rakshi especially for kids, a Pokeball Rakhi.
On middle finger I made a Lumba Rakhi. Lumba Rakhi is a traditional custom in the Marwari community, originally from Rajasthan. On the day of Raksha Bandhan, the sister will tie a rakhi not only to her brother but also her sister-in-law (bhabhi). They believe that once the brother is married, the wife completes him. They are meant to be one, and so the sister will tie a traditional rakhi to her brother and a lumba rakhi to her sister-in-law to take well-wishes and blessings from both.

Quite feminine a thread, Lumba Rakhi is tied to a bangle and hangs like a pendant from the wrist. The tradition is devoutly followed among the Marwari community.


Thanks for reading. Hope you like it. Enjoy your day and a very happy Rakshabandhan to all!
