Nail Art Inspired by a House Hold Item

Hi Girls, I am here on the last week of STNChallenge and the theme is "Inspired by HouseHold Item". Now this was the theme that I had been waiting the most because it opens endless possibilties of inspiration. And I have so many inspirations lying around in my house itself, my dresses, curtains, bedsheet, paintings, curtains, cushion and what not.

But eventually by the day I had to work on this theme, things in the nail world were not in good shape (I mean literally too, check the shape of my nails :P ). My nails turned yellow suddenly , I think it was a polish stain. I did all possible, but it wont go. So I got annoyed and chopped my nails to half the lenght. And thus my motivation for nail art also got chopped to half :(. As if this was not enough, with half motivation when I decided to still work on my nails, I saw the corner of middle finger nails has b…

NYX Salon Formula Lacquer Pastel Yellow Review and Swatch

Hi Friends, I am gonna review an old but hit polish today. I have had NYX Pastel Yellow for 6 months and have used it in multiple nail arts. I had been looking for a softer yellow for very long and I saw this on stand in Beauty Centre.

Product Claim : One coat of this pro-favorite polish is all it takes to transform your hands from ho-hum to haute stuff. With so many brilliant, on-trend colors and 10 nail treatments, our Salon Formula system makes it easy to get sexy, salon-quality manis and pedis...without ever leaving home.



Price and Quantity : Rs 350 for 15 ml (I got it at 50% off from Beauty Centre)



Color : The color is as the name says "Pastel Yellow". However, had I not seen the bottle I would have expected a softer yellow. This is not a bright sunshine yellow but it is not very soft pastel either. It is somewhere in between. It is a beautiful color no doubt, inspite of being yellow this color manages to be mellow.It is not loud by any measure, so we are good here. I didn…

Nail Art Inspired by Another Nail Artist

Hi Friends, as you might be aware that I am participtaing in the STNChallenges by Anita who herself is a great artist. God, the challenge is making push by limits and break my bones :P . But I am glad that it is really keeping me on my toes for this month.



I would have survived by taking inspiratin from any of wonderful nail arts by lovely artists around, but over ambitious as I am, I chose a design that I now think was out of my league. Stupid Me!! And obviously when the long back breaking nail art was complete I was dissappointed in my self. And not to forget as if doing it was not enough on one hand I again tried it on both hands, which made the job double difficult. But that's the way I feel satisfied so be it. Anyways my fellow nail art friends were very supportive and encouraged me through out. Its great to have such positive energy around :).



I took inspiration from the great Jaunty Juli . I saw this design on IG a few months back and had been wanting to do them since then. T…

Four Fountain Spa Review

Hi Friends,anyone visiting my blog would know by now that I am deeply madly and truely in love with nail art. Very Close second comes beauty about which I fail to write on a regular basis due to my job, home and nailart :P :P . But there is one thing more that I crave for and they are spas.

I love love love pampering my self and why not, I am stressfully working 6 days a week in office, after office I am wife managing my home and maids, at night with whatever energy I have I am nail artist and blogger. I truely believe I deserve to be pampered and be away from my "Self-Created Mess" once in while. Because a very famous poet once said "What is this Life full of Care, If you have no time to stand and stare"!!.

Anyways, I had been contacted by Four Fountain Spa long back to review their spa, but as I described my life above, I wasnt able to make time :(.Finally, I picked up a date and dropped in Four Fountain Spa Powai. Yes, this was the very next day I returened from G…

Nail Art Inspired By Painting

Hi Girls, I have been participating in STN Challenges for a few months now. The themes are fab and they make me push my limits each time. I enjoy myself during these challenges, no doubt some of my nailarts for themes fail terribly. But I am not giving up any time soon :P

The theme for this week was "Inspired By A Painting". Now I have 3 paintings at my home, two of mom made and gifted by her and one purchased. But I didn't feel the kick to get them on my nails, maybe because I have been seeing them everyday. I will do nail art inspired by them soon, it's on my To-Do list but last night was not the day.



This is again one of those nail arts which was very lengthy like Life Of Pi Inspired Nails where I took hours and did lot of permutation - combinations to get the look. It was confusing and exhausting enough for me to forget how I did and what I did.



I will not be able to re-create exactly if asked. But I am sure I will make a better one because I noticed a lot of mistak…

Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Red Carpet Review

Hi Girls, I am here with a detailed review of Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Red Carpet which is a rave in market these days. Girls and esp polish lovers can't stop talking about it and flaunting it. I have 6 of them now (planning to the remaining two also :P ), and I am restless to wear and flaunt them on my blog. But I don't like just swatching and not reviewing, so had to be patient to see the performance on my nails for a couple of days.



This is a picture heavy post since glitters and textures are camera shy. They barely show up their true selves infront of camera :P

Life of Pi Inspired Nail Art

Finally, after going through an ocean of inspiration but zero motivation I am here with my "Inspired By Movie Nail Art". I am very fascinated by doing inspiration manis these days and they bring the best out of me :). But somehow I was not very enthusiastic about doing a Mani inspired by movie. The concept is right and I have done movie inspired nails in past; Up Movie and Despicable Me. But this time I was short of ideas and execution plan.





Anyways, after lots of push and brainstorming I settled with Life Of Pi. Actually it was suggested by my husband to do a 'Life of Pi' inspired mani. He sent me few images of tigers through out the day so that I could pick up cues and practice. But with office , home and blog ; I frankly fail to devote time practicing. I know it's too bad. And I am working on it.



I was so tired after work and this mani drained out my life :P . It was so difficult to get the tiger and his angry expression. And that too squeezed to a nail size. Ph…
