Today is Dragobete Day!!! In Romania, Dragobete is known as a day for lovers, rather like Valentine’s Day. Dragobete is a traditional Romanian holiday celebrated on February 24. Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia, which stands for the main character in the pagan myth related to spring arrival and the end of the harsh winter. Due to his endless kindness he was chosen – according to some sources, by Virgin Mary – to be the Guardian of Love.
This Romanian holiday inspired me to do this nail tutorial, it’s an easy tutorial, although it might not look like it. I have tried to mimic those traditional motifs that exist in Romania, using acrylic paint and Stabilo pen.
