Watermarble Stencils

Hello Friends. Watermarble is a popular nail art technique, but even though it gives beautiful results, I personally don't like it. The reason is the mess it creates and the amount of nail polish that gets wasted while creating it. SO I have used this technique only once before. Then I came across these lovely watermarble stencils from Stick It Nail Vinyls and decided to give it a try. Here are my creation using these vinyls and I like how they turned out. Polishes I used are OPI's Non-Stop White, Sally Hansen's Grey Cement and Sinful Colors Innocent. I added some black dots after using the vinyls using Formula X's Dark Matter. Hope you all like the results.

Zoya Chantal

Hello Lovelies, today I am sharing swatch of my latest neutral shade which is called Chantal from Zoya. This is a pale beige shade with the formula being very very thin. For the pics below I used 3 coats but as you can see it is very very light and not fully opaque. This shade is from Zoya's Spring 2014 collection.

Spring Fever

A year ago I had completed 300 blog posts on this blog and couldn't help but feel amazed about it. Now a year later I have completed 450+ posts and am almost nearing 500. That being said, as the spring season continues, time for some more cheerful Spring Nails(inspired by the pic below). Floral design is done free-hand. Polishes used are Zoya's Darcy, Formula X's Dark Matter and OPI's Non-Stop White. I bought OPI's Non-Stop White 5 month's ago and the bottle is almost over. Anyone else has similar problem with there favorite polishes ;) Time to start looking for a new 5-Free White polish. Any suggestions?

Bracelet: Chloe and Isabel by Sony

Here is the pic, that inspired this nail art

Magic

Hello lovelies, today I am sharing a floral design. I have created this free-hand using a thin nail art brush and with OPI's DS Reserve and Formula X's Dark Matter. Hope you all will like it.

Here is another shot of my nails, which my hubby took from his phone camera, while we had gone to watch a movie in theater. Even though lighting is bad and the photo is a bit blurry, I decided to share it anyways as it shows my love for rings ;)

Glow

Good Morning from this side of the world. Today's nail art is something I didnt know what it would be until I sat down and started painting my nails. This design came to me as I was painting and eventually this is what the outcome was. The polishes used are Butter London's Fruit Machine and Cotton Buds. The beautiful rose gold polish is OPI's DS Glow.

Indian Bridal Nails

Hello Friend's, today I am sharing, what I like to call the Indian Bridal Nails. If you are not aware, Indian weddings are a grand and colorful affair. Brides don't wear white, instead the traditional Indian Bridal wear is red and gold. The bride gets decked up in lots of gold jewelry as well and adorns her hands and feet with elaborate henna designs. So with the wedding season just around the corner, I decided to create these bridal nails, fit for a Indian bride. Hope you all will like it :)
