Tattoo Nails (2 challenges in 1)

Hi guys,

Let's get done to some serious nail art business after having done some serious swatching. I am so lagging behind with The Neverending Pile Challenge. So today, I decided to combine one of TNPC theme with the ILL weekly nail art challenge theme.

TNPC theme: Untried stamping plate.
ILL theme: Tattoo nails.

So here's what I came up with...

Maybelline ColorShow Glitte Mania 'All That Glitters' & 'Pink Champagne' swatches

Hi there,

Yesterday I gave you guys swatches of 3 new glitter polish babies from Maybelline New York. And I also mentioned that I was regretting not buying more. Well, I rectified my mistake and went in to get 2 more shades !! Let's get on with the swatches.

1st up is 'Pink Champagne'..which is exactly what the color is...a light shiny, sparkly champagne-y pink, with insane amounts of silver glitter...

3 Maybelline Colorshow Glitter Mania Nail Polish swatches & review *DUPE ALERT*

Hello polish lovers...

If you are not aware, a new polish baby has made its way in the Indian markets and has everyone quite excited about it !! The baby is called 'Glitter Mania' from Maybelline New York and is a part of their ColorShow range !! If the name isn't enough to get you all pumped up about it, let me just add the words 'textured polish'...Ah, now I have your attention ;)

I hit the nearest local store to ask for these and impulsively bought 3 shiny bottles :D

First up is, 'Starry Night'...super fine silver slivers of glitter in black base.

This is 2 coats of 'Starry night' on all the nails with the index and the middle nail top coated.

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Discontinued

Hi guys,

As I promised, I am here with the 2nd post for today. For today ( actually friday's) I chose XOXO Nails 'Sweet On Me'.

#ILL Weekly Nail Challenge : Recreate a Mani

Hey there,

How you guys been ?? I have been busy with my daughter's exams and since it is her first time with real exams, I am a nervous wreck. Hence the lack of posts. I didn't get time to apply polish !! And when I got some, I quickly came up with 2 posts. The next attempt of the Neverending Pile Challenge mani will follow right after this ;)

So, for this challenge, I decided to recreate Gnarly Gnails's tape mani. You definitely have to check her's. It's waaayyy better (obviously, duh !!)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Texture

Hi guys,

Hope you all had a good weekend !! Monday comes with another theme for the neverending (quite literally) pile owners. It's texture for today. And I do have quite some texture polishes in my untrieds stash so I decided to use more than one for today's mani. But I was only able to put together 2 lol...

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Holo

Hi there,

And helloo HOLO :D Yess, I am that excited :p I absolutely love holographic polishes. And this is the best time to wear them. At least this is one thing we, Indians can thank the sun for. It makes us happi by making our holographic polishes give out dancing rainbows on our dainty lil fingers and that totally does make up for the heat we bear !!

So I had around 5 holo polishes in my untrieds stash and I wanted to use them all but something like a gradient is off limits with holo polishes. I ain't wasting them on a sponge :p So this is what I came up with, managing to cut off 2 holo polishes off my untrieds list ...

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Vampy

Hi there,

I am back with another set of untrieds for The Neverending Pile Challenge. The theme is 'Vampy'. Now this was a tough these for me. I hardly get attracted to dark and vampy shades. So I knew I had to look up for reds in my untrieds and surprisingly I had 2 !! But one of them was a glitter crelly which is anything but vampy so I had to go with the remaining red.

Pretty Serious 'Menace from Mars' is a red texture polish with slight shimmer...this is my vampy best lol !!

#ILL Weekly Nail Art Challenge: 1st plate bought

We girls often remember our 1st's...1st crush, 1st kiss, 1st date, 1st gift given/received, so on & so forth...same is the case with bloggers !! I clearly remember my 1st MAC product, an eye shadow trio...my 1st indie, Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker...Likewise, I do remember my 1st stamping plate and cherish the story behind it (yes, there is a story but it's not for today)

Konad M59 was my 1st stamping plate and I haven't used it much !! So this was an apt opportunity to use it.

For the base, I used Kleancolor Metallic White, which is exactly what the name says...and did a light pink gradient with Colobar Pink Smith, which is a light pink metallic.

The Neverending Pile Challenge: As Many Untrieds

Hi there,

The next prompt of TNPC had us all participants using as many untried polishes as we could in one mani. Now this has got to be interesting !! I could only think of simple designs using one whole collection while other participants are doing 20+ polishes in one !! WOW !! You guys be sure to check the links below for some super stunster manis !! Mine is so so simple in front of these pros ! But I still love what I came up with :D

First off, have a look at these cuties ...
