Happy New Year Nail Art

Hello Girls, Its finally the end of 2014!! Oh My, what an year it was. I did more nail art than ever this year. It had been very enriching experience in my nail journey. I did a lot of designs, lots of trials n errors, bought lot of plates and polishes , got lot of followers , I moved to self hosted Wordpress, I shifted my polish to a full cabinet storage and lots more!!

Pheww! Looks like I have lived 10 years in the last 1 year. However, the time flies and here we are bidding farewell to 2014 and welcoming 2015.



I did 2 nail art for the New Year 2015. Hah! You must be thinking, what else..she does nail art to say/express every damn thing! Yes, but that’s who I am and that’s what I love.

Sweater Print Nail Art

Hello Girls, Its cold and Chilly these days and what better time to do a Sweater print Mani. All my Winter and Christmas Nails Art collection would have been so incomplete without this. Also, this is the last prompt for STN Challenges which kind of makes me sad :(. After this, I am going on Challenge Break.



Yes, I just want to do what I feel like doing instead of prompts pushing me. I participated in a lot of challenges in last couple of months. As I said in my earlier posts-‘Challenges Kill Creativity’. And, too many challenges definitely do kill creativity and make nail art a task and a target to achieve. It becomes more of a ‘To Do’ list than ‘Wishlist’. But, they also push you to the untried zone and challenge your comfort zone. So the balance and hence the choice has to be fine.



So at this point after around two months running after the challenge, my wishlist and untried polish and plates call me!!I want to try all the untried polishes I had been ignoring and my whole bunch of new …

Delicate Green and White Nails

Hi Sugars, Today’s nail art is one of those nail arts where decision and implementation were just distanced by seconds. Usually the distance between an idea conception/inspiration and implementation can range from minute, hours, days to months and years!! Yes! That is how long we take at times.



I saw @Sharingvu at Instagram with this nail art and I just wanted to recreate it. She is an awesome artist. I chose this design for its simplicity and elegance. I am having slight temperature for few days and had been feeling low. I wanted a ‘Feel Good Mani’ so I turned to it.



Also, It has been ages since I wore a green polish, really. I don’t know why but I seem to have completely missed it. I had bought a gorgeous shimmery rich metallic green from Faces last month to make up for the loss. But I had still not tried it.



So this nail art by @Sharingvu nailed both the aspects. I just wanted to recreate them. Now the nail art looks quite simple and also easily achievable in the video. But it’s a sca…

Christmas Stockings and Santa Nail Art

Hi Sugars, finally its christmas time!!! And before even begining to blabber in the post, I wish all my readers a very happy and merry Christmas :). I wish you all the polishes in the world for this Christmas (What other wish could you expect from a polish alcoholic like me :P ). As I mentioned earlier in my posts, I don't much relate to all elements of Christmas because I don't celebrate it. Inspite of this fact, I feel connected to Chrismas as a result of lot of blog reading and christmas nail art ofcourse :). They make me feel like living Chrsitmas.



Anyways there is one element of Christmas that any one can relate to; which is Santa and gifts :). So I put my socks outside every christmas in expectation of some gift :P. And this is the closest memory of Christmas for me.



Hence I did this nail art inspired by The "Jaunty Juli". I have always loved her freehand work, no doubt she is very talented. I had done this nail art earlier inspired by her. The way she does her n…

Poinsettia Nail Art

Hello, I am here with 'Poinsettia Nail art' and just to tell you this is also one of the elements of Christmas. But since I never do nail art without some background or story, I did some reading. I wanted to know how and why is Poinsettia related to Christmas and tradition.



But I what I am still confused is which story do I share? There are so many and most of them are lengthy :P. So here is the shortest one I could find:

Poinsettias are one of the most popular Christmas decorations around, with more than $200 million in sales every holiday season.One interpretation of the plant is as a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem, the heavenly body that led the three magi, or wisemen, to the place where Christ was born. A Mexican legend tells of a girl who could only offer weeds as a gift to Jesus on Christmas Eve. When she brought the weeds into a church, they blossomed into the beautiful red plants we know as poinsettias, known as Flores de Noche Buena in Mexico (Spanish for "flowers…

Christmas Lights Nail Art

Hello Girls, Its December , its chilly and its christmasy!!! Except the fact that it is December none of the above adjective applies to me. Yet! I am as excited about them as you are. This is the first time when I have like taken a full fledged dip in Christmas and Winter Nails. And it is so much fun.





I am literally celebrating Winters and Christmas just on my nails and yet it makes me just as happy. I am here with Christmas Lights Nail Art Today. I have been seeing Christmas light nails around for so long now. They have always seemed pretty to me but I could never relate to it.



However, this time since I anyways dived deep in Christmas Nails, I can totally feel them. I did a simple evergreen nailart for Christmas Lights.



I did a white French nails first. Then I used Bundle Monster CYO13 to stamp those diagonal stripes. I wanted it to look Christmas without a doubt so I used the colours red and green. The red I used to stamp is Konad Special Polish while the green is Sinful Colors Calyps…

SnowFlakes Nail Art

Hello Girls!! Its winter time and so I wanted my nail art to be dipped in it (I mean not literally). I have always loved and fascinated snowflakes on my nails. They are so dreamy and delicate. Ever since I started doing nails I have always awwed them. But this is my first winters where I am actually doing them.



The surprising thing is I have always hated and dreaded winters. And my regular readers would know that I never do nail art of things I can’t relate to or approve of. If I can’t imagine it or feel it, I won’t do it. But in spite of my body getting repulsed by winters my nails are absolutely loving being decorated with every element of winters.

I had this design floating in my mind since couple of winters and I am so relieved to finally do it. Just imagine if something would have happened to me, this would be haunting my ghost mind too. Yeah! I can be melodramatic at times.



Now about the nail art, I used Wet and Wild 2% Milk as base. It is a sheer cloudy color polish ideal for nude…

Winter Scenery Snowman Nail Art

Hi Girls, I have already mentioned earlier that I have neither seen a real snow not do I like Winters. Frankly I hate winters.  And I had never expected myself to be tolerant to it even on my nails. But here I am quite enjoying winters and snow on my nails. That's the kind of advantage one has with creative liberty. I can create my own world on my nails and enjoy it :)



This is a free hand nail art I did and they are inspired by Robin Moses 'The Great'.But they are not a fraction of what Robin does. Plus in my defense I had fever and my hands were shivering. Trust me, I was in bad shape. But that's with nailart freaks like me. When we are happy we feel like doing nail art to pour our creativity and happiness. And when we are low, we definitely wanna do nail art to cheer us up and remind us why life is beautiful :).



I really imagine if I were in the scenery I have drawn, what would have been my feelings? It is spell bounding  and beautiful no doubt, but would I have surviv…

Christmas Tree Nail Art

Its Christmas time and its snowing festivity in the nail world. And I am getting carried away too.This is my first time with Christmas Challenges and I seem to be quite enjoying it :)



I did 3 nail art back to back yesterday and all winter/Christmas. I finished the entire process of doing and removing 3 nail arts spread across 5 hours. I took considerable amount of breaks in between too :).



I feel it was a very fertile and productive evening yesterday and I was able to finish more than what I had planned. These occasions of exceeding expectation are very rare and I am relishing it today also.



I used textured white from Sally Hansen Sugar Coat- Sugar Fix. They are perfect for snow effect :). I am so glad I used them. On pinky and pointer I used Wet and Wild 2% Milk as  base and did a gradient glitter sponge with Allana Renne - Santa's Little Helper. Its a gorgeous Christmas glitter polish.



I used Mash plates for the Christmas stamping and a local green polish for stamping.I wanted both …

Christmas Candy Nail Art

Hi Girls, As I informed you all earlier you should be expecting quite a few Winter and Christmas Nail Art here. Today I am presenting the very lovely and irresistible Candy Nail Art.



Every time I look into this nail art, I get lost in the swirls of it. I mean who doesn't like candies? And it is more exciting when they a colorblast like this one?



I used Maybelline Colorshow Porcelain White as base. Starting from my thumb, for Orange stamping I used Salon perfect Traffic Cone, Blue is Konad Special Polish , Red is Konad Special Nail Polish , Green is Sinful Colors Calypso and finally pink pinky is Models Own Sun Hat.



I used Winstonia 2nd Generation Plate for Swirly Candy designs.And then added rhinestone at the center.



I am pretty pleased with the neat and crisp stamping. Stamping is also quite a technique and you really need a practiced and seasoned hand. I think I am getting better it :)



Are you in mood for Christmas too? Is my nail art successful in sprinkling some Christmas on you? T…
