NOTD: My First Attempt At Nail Art (Free Style)


Pink And Green Nail Art


You know how for each one of us there had always been one subject in school which  was the toughest! For some it was Maths, for some History and for some Chemistry. I was in the latter group where Maths was of no issue but Chemistry had me sweating like crazy... I hated it and it hated me back...


Nail Art and I have been having a similar relationship all this while. Of course Nail Art is difficult and tough business and requires a skill that demands precision and a high level of artistic capabilities but we've been sparring all this while more so because of my lack of patience to let a coat of nail paint completely dry and only then proceed with another.

However, the other day, frustrated of being a pussy (no pun intended), I decided to tackle the problem head-on and just sit and do what came to my mind... And this was the result...

I know they are just baby steps but you would call it Nail Art wouldn't you :)

  4. I can totally understand you.. I'm extremely impatient with nail polishes.. I put my hand in the freezer, in water, under the fan to make it dry faster :P

    2. Apparently immersing your nails in cold water or sticking hands in freezer is supposed to speed up the process.. It feels like it does dry up faster :P

  9. By the way , is it necessary to use a base colour nail paint , the tranperant one which is used before we wear actual nail pant ?
    Few days back , I purchased VOV nail paints , the colours were irresistable but when I removed the nail paint , nails looked stained ( this doesnt happen with good quality nail paints) . I dont want my nails to look yellowish/stained after I remove nail paint .

    1. Hey! I know this isn't asked to me,but still I wanted to answer it. :D so Preeti, I really think you should invest in some good base coat and top coat. In india, base coat and top coat = transparent nail paint,but that is not so. Base coat and top coat have properties which prevent your nails from getting stained. I'm saying this because I've had my share of yellow nails because of 50rs nail paints. So, do invest in a good base coat. They're available online also! :D
      And also, your nails could be getting stained because you change your nail polish too frequently/use dark colors frequently/ use a nail polish remover that has acetone. So, I would suggest you give your nails a break from nail polish at least for a week every month and switch to an acetone free nail polish remover and let me know how it goes! :)

      Sorry for all the gyaan. Hope it helps! :)

    2. Thanks Nandini . The staining is duw to VOV nail paints . I got them for rs .15 each . I know it was not a good idea to buy something so inexpensive but the colours lured me :(

      Delete
    3. oooh all queries answered :D Yup like Nandini said a base coat is really important especially if you are using not so nice nail paints :) and yup do let your nails breathe at least for a couple of days in a month ;)

  12. Is that absinto? Because I simply loooooove that mint shade! My bottle is almost empty, and considering how nail polish bottles take eons to finish, that's quite a feat :P

    Great way to jazz up your nails. And being easy is the most appealing aspect of this manicure. Clumsy me loves it!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
