Red n Green Floral Nails

I wore my red and green Indian dress to a party recently and decided to paint my nails with red and green floral design below. The polishes that I have used are Ulta's Red Carpet Red and Revlon's Emerald City. I started by painting my nails in the base color red and once its was dry, using a dotting tool and green polish painted the flowers and the dots. Pretty simple hun.

Hello Lovelies. Today I am sharing another Cupcake Polish swatch with you all. This one is called Joy. This is from Cupcake polish's in Holiday Magic collection from 2015. Joy is a very pretty icy blue polish with linear holographic micro glitter. This polish is very sheer but the color is perfect for Winter. This is so far the my least favorite polish from Cupcake Polish in terms of the formula. The formula is very thick for a holographic polish. For the pictures below I used 2 coats and then sealed it with HK Girl top coat.

Fall beige colorblock nails

Hi friends, today's nail art is something I created as a maniswap with the talented Tawnya from @wicked_w_nails. For the maniswap she was inspired by my winter woods nails, you can see mine here and I created her beige colorblock nails, You can see her creation here. For recreating her mani I used the following polishes: L'oreal's Eva's Pink, Maybelline's Naturally Creme, Zoya's Purity and Willa. If you would like to do a maniswap with me then let me know :)

Turquoise Stone

Hello Lovelies, today's nail design is a maniswap with the lovely Stephanie from Lovestruck Lacquer. Check out her nail art blog HERE. I decided to create her turquoise stone nail design and she created my Holographic Pink Leopard Nails. You can see my creation HERE and Stephanie's HERE. I used the spray paint technique to create stone effect. Base blue polish used is Sally Hansen's Plush. Zoya's Ziv and Willa were used for the stone effects. I also used BornPrettyStore's liquid peel off tape so that the nail polish did not stick to my skin and this was very easy to use (see below). If you want to make a purchase from BornPrettyStore you can get a cool 10% OFF by using coupon code QANX31. If you would like to do a maniswap with me then let me know in the comments section below :)

Drip Drop - Calabasas

Drip Drop Polish is a Indie Brand which I found at The Indie Shop event in May. Every vendor at the event had a exclusive polish made especially for the event and named it after a city in Southern California. Drip Drop Polish named theirs Calabasas. Since I live very close to Calabasas I had to buy this beautiful duochrome polish. This is a blue polish which shifts color from blue to purple when exposed to light. It was really hard to capture the shift in the light and hence all the pictures below are at different angles and different lighting. I used 3 coats for the pictures below and really like the formula of the polish as well.

Then used What in Carnation? from cupcake polish( see it's swatch HERE). After that using Cocoon from cupcake polish I added some free-hand leaves. See Cocoon's swatch HERE. After that I sealed it with Holobliss which is a holographic top coat from Bliss Polish.

Frida Kahlo

Hello Lovelies, Today I am sharing my new find: a Frida Kahlo nail polish. If you are not familiar with who Frida Kahlo is, she is a famous Mexican painter from early 20th century known for her self portraits. Now back to the polish, I found this nail polish at CVS pharmacy last week and decided to get the most basic shade (this has no name). For the pictures below I used 2 coats. since I like trying new brands this was a good and unique find to add to my polish collection.
