Grumpy Cat Nail Art

I am going to share an ancient nail art I did long back. I dont know why I missed sharing it :( :( . My brother is a big fan of Grumpy Cat. And he has shared so many hilarious Grumpy Cat jokes with me , that now I also enjoy it whole heartedly :) . Intially I did only the cat but then the trade mark 'No' of the cat was missing.So me, my sis and my brother were sharing some Grumpy Cat jokes on whatsapp and sharing laughs. My brother suddenly asked me why dont I do a grumpy cat nail art?? And I didn't see a reason why did not do it yet :P :P . Since this request came from my little brother (not literally little because he is 21 but he is youngest so he will always stay 'little' for us) :) , I had to do it.Anyways I did this free hand nail art in a fun mood. I am not good at making faces and precison may be. But I attemped this nail art just with the correct spirit (although the face of grumpy cat may not be correct :P ). And the No! written on nails is just what grum…

Envious Neon Green with Stamping on White Nail Art

I am here with a neon nail art, just wanted to make some head turns :P :P . I had been keeping nails unpolished and dull for long. Obviously I had come to back with a bang and  neon matte was a perfect tool for the bang.

But it was looking much more neony than I wanted it to be. I wanted to break the neon monotony so I painted my accent finger white. The color scheme looked more balanced now and not entirely greeny and neony. I wanted a decent contrast to pull down the drama from neon. And white did a fair job. I wanted to get some serious colors with fun neon on my nails. Like you know naughty and desciplined at the same time. I used the Faces Neon Matte 'Greed'and Faces 'White O White' .

So I decided to stamp with Konad Balck using Plate No 72. I did use a matte top coat on white to get a coherent finish. Also, I used faces Neon Matte 'Greed to draw studs like dots on the accent nail to make it look like related and the connection seemless. I have never liked rando…

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet Nail Polish Review

I have been always a fan of mint color and pastel shades. Ohh, my heart melts seeing pastels till date. They are too sweet not to imprint your mind. Similar was my feeling when I saw this polish, love at first sight!!! I got my friend from US pick it for me. Also, this was my first Sally Hansen Polish, so it is special to me. Although I had with it me with for an year now but I swatched it for the first time recently. Lets see the swatches and review of this one.

Faces Matte Nail Polish 'Greed' Shade 73 Review

Hi Girls, you know how sometimes we feel low and nothing seems to work or fall in place. That's the time when we either switch to praying or shopping :P :P

I had not been feeeling myself for days together and I was sulking on a christmas holiday. I decided to try the shopping therapy to lift up my mood. Now, this therapy never fails :) . And it was christmas so even if santa did not gift me anything, I decided to be my own santa :P :P . I told my hubby that I just needed a couple of polishes and we moved to Beauty Centre . Now obviously I did not pick up a couple of polishes, I picked up around 12 :P :P . I did purchase 3 of Faces Neon Matte Collection. Such an edgy mix "Neon" + "Matte".  Lets see how the first polish faired.

Wild Flower Nail Art

Hi Sweets, I feel like I am talking to you after long long time. Though I managed to be regular in posting my articles last month but mostly all of them were scheduled. So practically all of them were written in November, so I kept on feeling disconnected to you entire december :( :( . I really cannot explain how terrible that made me feel. Being honest, I missed connecting to you more than I had anticipated. I was and am hell like busy lately , family issues, health issues and office issues and what not.

Anyways, I don't want to share a depressing story here. I just want to share a happy nail art. I was totally about to skip doing a nail art due to the loss of control I am having on my schedule and health. But then day before I made it a point to leave office on time and zoomed to a parlour to feel sane again. I got a head massage and foot massage done. Trust me it helped me so much not only phyiscally but also mentally. I felt so light and relaxed and 'human' after that. …

Hi Girls, there are two make up product I love the most. One is obviously nail polish and the other is kohls. I have been 'awwed' by beautiful pigmented kohls since ages. When I read Inglot has range of colored gel liners, my heart started pounding faster :) . But I wanted to buy it after trying and not online. So I waited to visit an outlet on my own. Finally when I went to Delhi I pestered my  hubby to visit Saket Mall where I could both shop Sephora and Inglot outlet :) :) . What happened after that is not a mystery :P :P

Sweet Geisha Nail Art

Hi Girls, nail decals are very in these days and so I went ahead and got a lot of them :P . Ya more than possibly I could use :P . I had a terrible nail accident the other day (I exaggerate  anything when it comes to nails) . On my way back from work, I boarded an auto rickshaw, now you know how bumpy our roads are and how Schumacher our auto drivers are . The driver took a steep turn and to save myself from falling, I pounced on the bar ahead of me, when I hit my nail on the stupid drivers seat :( :( :( .

I was almost was heart broke when my nail art friends 'Tea bag Method' to save the split nails. And after 5 minutes of 'Operation Tea Bag' in ICCU, my nails were on 'Ventilator' . Atleast now I wont have to trim down all nails, I shortened them though. Its a life saviour, Google it interested. Anyhow  with short nails I could not do better than this. I was also feeling a bit low and was in no mood to do lot of artistic work here.

So here I am using Geisha Nail …

Maybelline Color Show Keep up the flame Nail Polish Review

With new year just beginning, I want to start with a party and bright color nail polish review. And with this dashing red, I hope you paint the town red. I have another gorgeous edgy nail polish swatch to share today. The name keep-up-the-flame is true to what you can expect out of this color. It is indeed fiery and flamy. I am not a 'Red' person but this is a different red. It is loud, ofcourse but that it is what makes this color stand out in crowd.
