Smith and Cult - Tang Bang

Hello Everyone. Today I am sharing, new-to-me, nail polish brand called Smith and Cult. I came across this brand in Nordstrom and was immediately drawn to the bottle of these polishes, which looked like mini perfumes. Among all the shades that they had to offer, I bought Tang Bang with is a gorgeous burnt orange shade and a color which I didn't own in my polish collection. The formula for this polish is very smooth which makes the application very easy. I used 2 coats of polish for the pictures below with top coat. The only down side is that the polish bottle cap is really heavy and after applying it I thought there should be an easier way to apply it and the cap should come off and it did and there was a smaller handle underneath. I like this nail polish, the bottle is beautiful, the shade and formula are very rich and gives the luxurious feeling. Smith and Cult polishes are Vegan and Gluten Free. They are also a 7 FREE Formula.

Christian Dior

Hi Everyone. Today I am sharing swatch of my latest Christian Dior polish called 745 GRENAT. This polish was release by Christian Dior for the Holiday Season 2017 and is part of their DIORIFIC VERNIS - HOLIDAY 2017 LIMITED EDITION which comes with four different shades. I bought this from Nordstrom during the Holiday Season and got around only now to try it out. I bought this shade out of the four because I knew I would use this red more than any other shades offered in this line and wanted to get maximum usage out of this polish for the price that I paid for it.

Grenat is a gorgeous deep red nail polish with a decent formula. What I like about this polish is the gorgeous bottle it came in and the brush that comes with the polish, which is wide and makes application of the polish really easy. For the pictures below I used 2 coats and a top coat. I have bought Dior polishes before and you can see its swatch HERE.

Fun Lacquer Magnetic Polishes

Hello Lovelies. Today I am reviewing 2 magnetic multi chrome polishes from F.U.N Lacquers. These polishes are from their 4th anniversary collection. For those of you don't know F.U.N Lacquer standd for Fabulously Unique Nail Lacquer. I wasn't provided these polishes for review but I bought them when they went on resale. I got 2 polishes from this collection Harmony and Incredible. All F.U.N Lacquers are 5-FREE! They do not contain Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor and it is cruelty FREE. Which makes it so worthwhile to purchase these polishes. I bought them from F.U.N Lacquers website for $14 each and received them in 9 days which was very impressive.

Both the polishes are magnetic polishes and require a magnetic tool to create and generate magnetic designs on the polishes. So I used a magnet pen tool from BornPrettyStore which WAS provided to me for review :) This magnetic pen tool is really light weight and easy to use. It can be purchased from Born Pretty Store by clicking HERE for $1.49, product code #32407. This is a really useful tool if you like magnetic polishes and highly recommend buying it.

Now lets talk about the nail polishes. The first one is called Harmony. Harmony is a multi-chrome magnetic polish that shifts the colors from copper to gold to green. I used 2 coats of polish on clear base coat here and then used the magnetic tool from Born Pretty Store to create the diagonal lines for the magnetic pattern. This is a thick formula and using a third coat makes it really lumpy. This is my favorite among the two polishes as the color shift is really visible that even strangers commented on it. It is also easy to photograph.

The second polish is called Incredible and this is a multi-chrome magnetic polish that shifts the colors from maroon to gold to green. But I felt that I really really had to look and catch that color shift happen on my nails and it was even harder to capture it on the camera. This is also a very thick formula so I used 2 coats for the pictures. I used the magnetic tool to free hand some swirls on this one. Next time I would like to use a black coat for the nail art I create with these polishes. I tried it on one nail with Harmony and the effect was darker and different.

Hope you all liked my first swatch and first product review of 2018. There are many more coming so keep watching this space for more :)

Happy Sankranti

Happy Sankranti everyone. If you have never heard of it before, Sankranti is a Hindu harvest festival, celebrated in India, to mark end of the month with the winter solstice and the start of longer days. It is known with different names in different parts of the country like Lohri, Pongal, etc. The celebration includes Kite flying competition, dancing, bonfires and feasts.. During this time the skies are filled with colorful Kite’s. So I decided to decorate my nails with some freehand colorful kites. I used multiple nail polishes to create this colorful design and I am loving it how it turned out. What do you think of this design?

Book Review | Mrs Funnybones

Hello Everyone. Here I am with my first book review of 2018. Most of you know that I am avid reader and finish at least one book in two weeks, unless I am stuck with a boring book. But the book that I am reviewing today is anything but boring. It's Mrs Funnybones by Twinkle Khanna. If you are from India, you would already know who Twinkle Khanna is. For those of you don't she an ex-Indian actress, now a successful entrepreneur and columnist. She rights a column in Times of India as Mrs Funnybones, hence the title of the book.

I read this book early last year but couldn't get around to sit down and review it. This book is about Twinkle Khanna a.k.a. Mrs Funnybones and hilarious incidents in her life. So its more like reading someones personal diary with chapters being different incidents from her life. The book is easy to read and makes you laugh out laugh(literally), so much that more than once my dear husband had to ask me "what are you reading" and "share it with me". The book is really small and I finished reading it in a day.

If you have been contemplating reading it, I would recommend that you actually read it. I rate it 5/5.

It's been super cold, rainy and gloomy here. And I have been sharing a lot of Winter nails so I decided to take a break from them and create some pretty and colorful tropical designs on my nails. So I came up with these red and yellow Hibiscus nail art. I am really happy on how these turned out. These I created freehand using polishes - Zoya's Purity, Rekha, Darcy, Willa, Tilda.

Golden Snowflakes

It's getting colder and colder, so I decided to make some glamorous golden snowflakes for this winter season. I used Zoya's Blu as the base, then on that using a fan brush, I added Zoya's Sia. Finally using a nailart brush I free-handed some golden snowflakes using Zoya's Ziv. How cold is it where you live? Is it snowing for you?
