Holiday Series: Snowflakes

Snowflakes!!! There is something about them which makes me like everything about them. From snowflake jewelry, cutlery, patterns, wrapping paper, I love everything about them. So I decided to try my hand at stamping by buying a snowflake stamping plate from BornPrettyStore and trying my hand at some more stamping. All these pretty snowflakes are created from the images used on the stamping plate. The base polish is OPI’s The Spy who loved me and I used OPI’s My Boyfriend Scales the Walls to create the stamped snowflakes. Hope you all Enjoy it. See my free-hand snowflake nail art from last year here.

Holiday Series: Feeling Festive

Hello Friend's. Another day during the Holiday Season and another Holiday Nail Art. This one is very festive looking and I used glitter placement technique to create this one. The polishes used are Chanel's Dragon and on top of it using SinfulColor's Watch It Shine, I added the diamond glitter placement . What do you all think? My Husband thinks it looks more like a Indian wedding than Holiday season. Do you agree with him?

See other mani's using the same glitter here and here.

The house is made from Urban Outfitter's Flip Flop, windows/doors are made from Revlon's Plum Seduction and the candy cane red is Chanel's Dragon.

SO, what do you all think ? Would you like to step in my Winter Wonderland.

Holiday Series: Mistletoe

Sharing with you all today, another one of my Christmas Nail Art. It's free-hand painted Mistletoes. It looks very Christmassy, as I have been told by my friend's. I love how the red glitter looks on the red nail polish. It's OPI's Gettin' Miss Piggy With It over OPI's The Spy Who Loved Me, one of the "Holiday-appropriate" shades that I have.

So what do you all think? A Kiss-deserving nail art? :)

Tutorial: How to remove glitter polish easily

It's Holiday Season and what do we all love the most in this Season on our nails? Well, glitter polishes of course? The sparkles, the bling, the pretty shades it’s all good until the polish starts to chip off and it’s time to remove the glitter polish from your nails. As much as I love putting the glitter polish on, I hate removing it because its always hard to remove. Those tiny sparkly glitter particles, that looked so lovely a few days ago become the object of concern now, as they refuse to leave your nails. So while reading some online article one day, I discovered this easy trick on how to remove glitter polish easily without hurting your nails. I decided to try it myself, before sharing it with you.

For this technique, you will need the following:
1. Nail Polish Remover
2. Cotton buds
3. Aluminum Foil (can be found easily in any Grocery store.)

Step 1. Take cotton bugs for each finger and soak them with nail polish remover.

Step 2. Apply cotton buds soaked in nail polish remover on every nail covered with glitter nail polish.

Step 3. On fingers covered with cotton apply the aluminum foil and cover the whole finger tip.

Step 4. Wait for 5-7 minutes and then take out the foil and then the cotton bud. The glitter polish should have come off by now and if a little of it is remaining here and there, just remove it with more nail polish remover.

Easy Peasy isn't it? Don't agree? Try it yourself with your favorite glitter polish this Holiday Season.

Coral and Beige

I decided to wear this dress again for a party and wanted to paint my nails to match my dress. This nail art is what I came up with to match the shaded part of my dress and gold dots and circles (Scroll all the way to the end to see the fabric). I used Maybelline's Naturally Cream (see the swatch here) and Charlotte Russe's Coral Nail polish.
