Beautify Your Feet On Festivals - Apply Alta Or Mehendi and Wear Silver Anklets.





On festivals and special occasions we wear beautiful jewellery, clothes and makeup however we often forget our feet! Beautifying your feet is probably one of the most easiest things to do.

An alta bottle costs around 15 INR and it takes about a total of 10 minutes to apply and set it dry. If in case you are allergic to Alta since it is a red dye, you can also try Mehendi as it lasts longer and looks beautiful as well.

I really enjoyed this Diwali the old fashioned way, NO CRACKERS!!, Lots of Rangoli around the house, Diyas, Flower decoration and Wishing Lanterns. I also made sure that not only my face and clothes look beautiful but also my feet. Why should we ignore our feet?

I was also wearing Silver anklets on both the days of Diwali!!

There is old Indian saying that the lady of the house should always wear silver anklets in feet specially on Diwali as it is a symbol of goddess laxmi - the goddess of prosperity and if the lady of house does wear these, she brings in luck...

If in case you do not like one's with gungro you can wear silver anklets without the gungro also which are easily available at any silver jewellery store.






Both Silver and Golden anklets look extremely beautiful!


 I wore both Silver and Golden anklets this Diwali.

Silver anklets with Mehendi:

Golden anklets and Alta on feet:


These are also silver anklets but they are Gold plated.










Golden anklets with Mehendi:



On My Wedding Day.


Sparkling Silver Shoes!! LOL - Sparkle With My SHOES!! :)








Both Alta and Mehendi complements silver and golden ankles as well as sparkling shoes, don't go out without them on festivals such as Diwali and special occasions such as Wedding Anniversary and Karvachauth.








Alta is available at any general store and takes only 10 minutes to apply on your feet. If in case you are allergic to alta, find a mehendi wala to apply mehendi as you need a skilled artisan to do it for you!

Hello Everyone, Thank-you for all your Compliments, due to popular demand I have posted a new set of pictures which I took this Diwali. Many people wanted me to wear toe-rings so I am wearing two different types of toe rings in these new set of pictures....


Enjoy!! waiting for your response.....

  18. everyday I come here and see no change. So beautiful and gorgeous. The craze to see your feet like that keeps me dragging back here. I imagine them in different looks and wearing different jewels. in fact a toe ring perhaps something more mesmerizing. Surabhi like the name you have so are the beautiful feet you have. Never have seen a goddess but im sure she'll be like you. Love to see more of your beauty. Keep posting please. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Thankyou, for all the compliments Amit, I am touched!... I dint not that the so many people will appreciate this post so much and I had no idea, I just took some random pictures of my feet on Diwali... I never knew that this post will be such a big hit!!....

      Lol, I did not know that my feet were hypnotizing :), I did get a lot of compliments for skin , eyes and hair but never for my feet...It is overwhelming for me to compared to a goddess!!.. I know I am human and not a goddess... but thank-you for all the respect and adoration... I will never forget this compliment!!..

      I will definitely do a post of anklets and different Indian jewellery for feet.. however I am busy preparing for my fashion show in May this year...and as soon I am free from it...I will be a doing a post again!!

      Thankyou for all you LOVE!!

  23. It really is amazing how different cultures view things. Something as innocuous as an anklet can be viewed in such vastly different ways! I have really enjoyed your blog hop and appreciate that it prodded me to do something that I should have done ages ago.

  24. Hello Surabhi.. I'm too fascinated by the snaps of your beautiful feet with Anklets and Alta. The snaps were amazing and I am tempted to see them again and again. Your toes are well shaped and so are the nails decorated with nail polish. All the difffeent type of anklets that you have sported adds so much glamour to your feet. People must be admiring your feet in public places and they must not been able to take their eyes of once they have cast their eyes on your feet. I request you to post a few snaps of your feet with silver anklets and toe rings may be 2 pairs or if possible 3pairs liek a typical hindu bride. If you could send me these snaps both with bare feet and also with different designs of foot wear. It will be saved in my personal lap top as a memorabilia and I would have it as my screen saver and keep changing it a frequent intervals. So when I power on my lap top the first picture I would see is of your beautiful feet decorated with silver jewellery. Hope you don't disappoint me..

    1. Hello Praveen!!

      Oh my god you want to make pics of my feet your wallpaper? I don't believe this lol!! Thank-you for all your compliments but unfortunately I hardly show my feet in public...

      I was out of the country for month in Kenya and all I wore was sports shoes and heels on weekends with socks. I don't I think anybody got to see my feet there actually I am quite surprised because I never received any compliments for my feet in my entire life except on this blog post.

      People always complimented me for my eyes or skin generally. My husband loves my smile but I never thought that someone would like to see the pics of my feet!!

      I have received a lot of requests in the past for more of my pics of feet I shall I definitely post some more.

      Thank-you for reading my blog!!

  33. Hi surabhi ji, I saw new anklets in fair it reminded me of your beautiful feet and how it would look on them. I don't know if you would recommend me sending them to you its artificial . I don't knw why real jewellery is not like it . They have more designs to choose and many type too. Anyway still looking forward for new posts apart from the viewers post. thank you.

  36. dear surabhi ji happy karva chauth to you. I hope you will more photos this year around and post . It has been long waiting and I feel like waiting is over and we can see the new beginning again . I mean the lovely feet of yours. I hope you will try something new with traditions of india. I have hated all the new thing in market. I think the old jewellery has magical effect and lovely henna makes it two. wishing you again with full enjoyment of life.

    ReplyDelete
  37. sometime I feel like sending you all the anklets in the market you can wear and try some and post some pictures here but then I don't know how you will think or you might get me wrong. Waiting for another Diwali so you can post new photos. I know this is really out of the question. and you might get bored too. But I just hope that we could see more of your beautiful feet in video. I like the golden anklet video but it was like very short. it is obvious that making self videos of feet is hard. If you have selfie stick it is easier

  38. it is 2017 and yes we are holding breath for the most beautiful and sensual feet to come out in their new looks. Surabhi if you dont mind may i ask if you took any pictures on womens festival karva chauth. I have seen many women doing henna work on their feet. i wonder if you also put henna design on your feet during karva chauth. I think the mehindi and payal are sisters that goes together all over india. It is like a tradition if one cannot find anyone using both. I would like to see your beautiful feet in henna too. Thank you
