NOTD: Maybelline ColorShow Nail Polish in Coral Craze

NOTD: Maybelline ColorShow Nail Polish in Coral Craze
For the past couple of weekends I have only been lazing around and browsing through fashion and beauty magazines... Leafing through glossy pages one after another can be relaxing, invigorating and stimulating... That apart it can also be informative and now I know this fall is all about GRUNGE where beauty trends are concerned...

We have a wedding in the family! Yayee! The pati's cousin is getting married during the end of this year and I am dying to experience Delhi in all its glory during the winters :) It'll be a whole week long series of festivities, people wearing their best and a lot of rich food :D

REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Nail Polish in Cherry Tomato

Review of Bobbi Brown Nail Polish in Cherry Tomato
Not everything in life is about being right or having the last word in an argument. Though I knew of this philosophy and our parents always inculcated this in us since our childhood, but lately I had been finding myself not paying heed to this teaching. I was actually plunging myself to arguments and controversy head-on.
I had a introspective weekend, this one, and needless to say I came back to what my parents always taught me that one doesn't always have to be a part of an argument, oftentimes its better to just watch the fun from the sidelines...

Once I realised this, it was as if I was reborn and I saw things in new light...

Hey!
Purple is a colour that can be opulent or even child-like depending on the tonality and shade used. It is a very versatile colour that is used in a variety of makeup looks; especially eye makeup because purple goes with brown, hazel and even blue eyes. But purple is generally given a raw deal in nail paints because of it’s perceived frivolity (in the case of gregarious colours) and goth-ness (in the case of purples so dark that they almost look black).

Hey there!
When it comes to nail paints I tend to be very adventurous. I have a wide array of blues, blacks and reds but somehow I always consciously stayed away from staid colours like pearly whites, peaches and corals but the nail paint I am now going to review is a coral. Not just any staid coral but a bright summery flamboyant coral that is sure to make your summer weary heart sing!
Read on to see if the product pleased me as much as the colour did.

REVIEW: Maybelline Colorshow Nail Paint In Silk Stockings

Maybelline Colorshow Nail paints – Silk Stockings
Guest Post By: Pallavi
I really didn’t know how anyone could wear nudes on their nails. I have never worn them and never ever had an urge to wear them too. I was never sure how this would look on my hands. I always thought these shades were meant for super fair hands. But as everybody says there is always a first time and so it’s here too.

NOTD with Maybelline Colorshow Glitter Mania Nail Polish in Starry Nights
At the moment my nails are bare, I have not one speck of makeup on my face and my hair is greasy, falling limp on my shoulders... This is a nightmare situation for me but I still don't do anything to rectify it... Why?
Why, you ask me and the reason is simple...

I am TIRED...

Ladies...I have to declare that this is my most favourite shade of this range. I have never been a green girl. I don’t like green color. I don’t have any dresses in green nor even accessories. But this color changed all the old myths. Now, it’s a wrong notion that I and green are no more friends. Green has forgiven me and it look equally chic on me as it does on others. So, no partiality.

Review of Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Blueberry Ice
There is something about Maybelline Color Show nail polishes that makes one never get tired of them... No really what is it about them? Also another question that keeps running through my mind every now and then is, does anyone know the exact number of shades that constitute this range. I mean every time I am on Facebook or at the Maybelline counter, I just keep seeing newer and prettier shades coming out of the Nail Polish factory at Maybelline! I mean really, Maybelline sure has hit jackpot with this range of nail colors!

I don’t know about other ISLM readers, but I love a red manicure. Coming as they do, in a plethora of distinct tones ranging from fire engine red to an oxblood, you are sure to find a red that suits you to a T!
Nothing attracts me to makeup as much as the colour red does, so I was quick to snag this CG polish that promised me “berry” fine nails. ;)
Read on to see if it lived up to its tall claims and left me spellbound.

NOTD: Lakme 9 to 5 Long Wear Nail Color Oak Room

Review of Lakme 9-5 Long Wear Nail Color Oak Room Guest Post By: Pallavi

Lakme seems is on a roller coaster these days. They have been coming up with many great products which are affordable as well as superb in performance.
They have launched a 9-5 range specifically for office ladies. Under this they have come up with gorgeous lipsticks which made lipgloss girl like me to use lipsticks. They have also come up with 15 amazing nail paint shades which seem to be tailor made for office goers.

Maybelline had struck jackpot when it launched its Color Show range of nail enamels... Bright hues, quick drying, pretty packaging and extremely comfortable to the pocket were some features that made Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamels a huge hit with everyone... We were all bust getting ourselves gorgeous shades after shades and filling up our vanity drawers when Maybelline shocked us (pleasantly) once again... With Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Enamels...

Maybelline Colorshow Nail Polish in Fiesty Fuschia on my Nails!
Isn't it always so much fun to experiment with colors, to lose yourself in the rainbow of shades that we can see, to fancy any hue that is possible to create? Red on the lips, purple on the nails, Orange on your cheeks, Teal on your eyes, am sure most of you have done it all...

This brings me to the discussion about Nail Polishes and how nail paint shades have evolved over the years and through the generations. I distinctly remember my mum having a limited set of shades, mostly maroons, purples and chocolate browns. A little variation here and there and that's about the color palette that women, 3 decades ago were content with...
