Nail biting contest!

Painted nails. Nails with threads. And mirrors and beads. It was nail art at its colourful best at the St. Teresa's College in Kochi on Wednesday. Organised by the College's Women's Study Centre, the nail-polishing competition showcased the creative talents of students. Thirteen teams participated in the event, which was open to all departments. Initiated by the Department of Home Science, the contest was first in a series of events to be held on the campus during the coming days.

Students drew inspiration from well-accepted techniques and decorative painting styles used in nail art. Beads, threads, mirror and even flowers were used for decorating the nails. Special themes ranging from "Panchabhoothas'' to "Religion'' were selected for the craft.
