Who doesn't love some hearts on the nails ? I totally dig them :D Especially if they are black..yeah I am a lil weird :p

Today I have the last polish from the KBShimmer's Valentine's Day Trio. It's called 'You Rock My ♥'. This is a funky mix of hearts, stars, rounds, hexes and some shreds in hot pink matte and black in a clear base !!

KBShimmer 'Falling For Hue' swatches & NOTD

White, for me, is a medium of relaxation. I love white...whether its clothes, hair accessories or nail polish. Off late, I have started to hoard a lot of white crelly based glitter polishes. The latest being KBShimmer's 'Falling For Hue' and this was part of the special Valentine's Day Trio. I have one more from the trio, which I will show you guys in a few days and the third is yet to come to me :p

'Falling For Hue' is a white crelly with metallic red, pink and fuchsia hex glitters in various sizes...

Colorbar Metallic Nail Lacquer swatches

Hi lovely ladies,

I am here to keep my promise of putting up a lot of swatches :D Today I have 8 Colorbar nail polishes to show you guys.

Remember how I always crib about unavailability of different textures in India. Well, it seems like my complains will have to rest now. Because now there are a good number of glitters, textures, metallics, fuzzy coats etc, easily available in the market today. I will have all the aforementioned types up on the blog soon (all bought locally). For now, sit back and enjoy the shiny new metallics from Colorbar.

Neon Grafitti Nail Art

Hi girls, I am back with a super cool nail art which screams fun !! It's not very often that I love what I do on my nails. But today is a huge exception. This manicure is something I just can't stop admiring and wouldn't mind wearing for weeks at a stretch. The original idea isn't mine and I had seen MadamLuck 's mani on IG and it kinda got stuck in my mind. I knew I had to do as on my nails :D Take a peek. ..

For this design, I first put on a white creme which is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 'White Out'. The neon strokes were painted using the distressed method or the dry brush method (originally invented by Chalkboard Nails). The polishes used for the same are Orly 'Glowstick' (neon green), Orly 'Beach Cruiser' (neon pink) and Kleancolor 'Neon Orange'.

The super cool graffiti is stamping using Pueen 50 from the Pueen Cosmetics Buffet 24B stamping set and stamping polish is Konad Special Black.

All topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I absolutely love the rugged look all the nails have and for once I didn't smudge the stamping, its in the design lol !!

If you follow me on IG, you will have known by now that I, recently received a HUGE nail mail recently which had around 35 polishes and 2 new stamping sets. So you know you can expect a lot of new swatches and nail arts on the blog.

How you liked this design, lemme know below :)

The Totally Doable Nail Challenge February Round-Up

Hello dear readers,

Its been almost a month since I blogged last. I am having horrendous problems with my computer. I will spare you all the details and give you guys a humongous post with 10 nail art pictures. They are the ones I did for The Totally Doable 'I have A Life' Nail Art Challenge. I hope it is enough to make up for my irregularity.

The first two nail arts, I have already blogged about but if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the rest as well.
