Nail Art: Floral

 

It has been a while since I posted a nail art, and this one has been sitting in my folder for sooo long. This is an easy peasy floral nail art.

I chose the color pink, but you can pair it with any color of your choice.  This is one of my go-to nail art when I dont want to spend much time doing it. All you need to do this nail art is a dotting tool/ bobby pin/ tooth pick and your choice of nail polish. I like to do my dots using a tooth pick as it gives more uniform dots.

Do try this nail art and link back if you like 🙂

Maybelline Colorshow Gold Digger nail polish ~ Gilded Rose 903: Review & Swatch

Maybelline gold digger

Maybelline has an entire range on gold themed nail colors: Gold Digger Collection, and I am reviewing a beautiful peach color nailpolish from this range ~ Gilded Rose 903

I have reviewed the first three shades in the pic above HERE, HERE and HERE

Price: Rs 145

 

maybelline-gilded-rose

Gilded Rose 903 is a peach colored nail polish with sugar texture. 

It comes in classic Colorshow packaging: cylindrical transparent bottle with black cap and name engraved on top. The brush is decent but not great. Gilded Rose is a peach colored nail polish with peach and golden shimmer. This is not as bling shade as some of the OTHERS in this collection, but it is a good shade if you like subtle colors. However, this shade can make hands look dark, so try it at the counters before you purchase.

People confuse this shade of Gold Digger collection with  ‘Pink Champagne’ shade of the previous Glitter Mania collection. There is a difference between the two shades, the latter being more blingy and rose gold in color, and Gilded rose is peachy in color with toned down bling. Also, there is no chunky glitter in Gilded Rose. The texture however, is the same. Personally, I like Pink Champagne shade more.

This is not a top coat, and it takes 2-3 coats to build the color. The tip wear starts after 3-4 days. Being a glitter nailpolish, its removal is quite a pain. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE

Overall, this is a good color if you like subtle colors with toned down bling. This is a great office appropriate color in my opinion. But it may make hands look dark, so try it on your nails first.

Faux Pas #1

So I do a lot of nail art, some turn out great, which I post it here (I try to post ’em all). But some look so bad that I would rather see the ‘Mountain’ (Sir Gregor Clegane) of Game of Thrones without his helmet (Eeeeeek!).

So instead of throwing such nail art pics in trash, I decided to post some of it on the blog itself, just for fun.

And so, this is the series of my epic fails at nail art 😀

After all, none of us is perfect 😉

This was my first attempt at gradient I think, and I chose such contrasting colors, that it didn’t blend at all 😀

But I think I can still call it as “Fire nail art“. Doesn’t sound bad!

Maybelline Colorshow Gold Digger nail polish ~ Gold Gluttony 905: Review & Swatch

Maybelline has an entire range on gold themed nail colors: Gold Digger Collection, and I am reviewing a stunning top coat from this range ~ Gold Gluttony 905

gold gluttony nail polish maybelline

 

Gold Gluttony is a transparent nail polish with chunks of gold flakes of different sizes. This is a top coat and looks great on both light as well as dark base colors. This is a no-fuss nail polish which can take your manicure up a notch in no time.

It comes in classic Colorshow packaging: cylindrical transparent bottle with black cap and name engraved on top. The brush is decent but not great. I think the brush could have been wider to pick such chunky gold leaves effectively. Sometimes, I am left with only 1-2 gold specks in one coat and so have to place the gold flakes individually on each nail. Also, using multiple coats to load up on the bling makes it gloopy and slow to dry.

Other than that, it is a great nail polish to bling up the manicure. I always wanted a nailpolish like this- gold chunky leaf glitter, and this one is a great budget option to have.

Being a glitter nailpolish, its removal is quite a pain. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE

Zig-Zag Nail Art

zig zag nail art

 

It has been a long time since I last posted a nail art, and so here I am posting a nail art which has been sitting quietly for many many months in a forgotten folder somewhere in my computer. (Eeeeee!)

This was supposed to be a color block nail art of pink and yellow, but then I added a zig zag line (just like that) with a nail art pen.

My nail art pen went gloopy, that is why there are random black lines here and there :-/

See my other super easy color-block nail art HERE & HERE

Maybelline Colorshow Gold Digger ~ Oh-My-Gold! 904 : Review & Swatch

Maybelline gold digger

 

Maybelline launched Gold Digger Collection in their Colorshow nail polish a while back. I will be reviewing a few of their shades in a series of posts. I had reviewed a beautiful top coat from this range- Bling Thing 902 earlier and here I am reviewing a gorgeous silvery gold color from this range ~ Oh-My-Gold! 904.

 

oh my gold maybelline

 

Price: Rs 145

Oh-My-Gold 904 is silvery gold nail polish with gold specks and glitter. The golden glitter and specks get masked by the silvery polish which gives a muted shimmer effect to the whole look, which I love!  This is a metallic nail polish, which is neither silver nor golden, but somewhere in between.

One coat is opaque enough, but I apply 2 coats anyways. It dries fairly quick.

The glitter and golden specks are not too out there and gives a beautiful diffused shine.

The packaging is standard packaging of their Colorshow nailpolish. It comes in cylindrical glass bottlewith black cap. The shade name is engraved on top of the cap. The brush is decent and picks enough nailpolish for one coat. The glitter in this nailpolish remain suspended and does not settle down at the bottom of the bottle. The glitter does not tug and the nail polish settles into a smooth finish.

I am right handed, so my polishes start to chip early on my right hand. I could see minor tip wear from this polish starting next day on my right hand (which happens with almost ALL the nailpolishes) and proper chipping in 4 days. But nail polish on my left hand stayed put for 5 days (!),  and so I am impressed with the staying power of this polish.

Oh My God 904 being glitter nailpolish, its removal can be quite a pain, especially if you layer this polish a lot. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE

Overall, Oh-My-Gold 904 is a beautiful silvery-gold color with muted shimmer and specks which gives a beautiful overall diffused shine. If you wear metallic colors like silver and gold, do check this one out. I love this shade and will definitely repurchase it.:)

Maybelline Colorshow Gold Digger ~ Bling Thing 902 : Review & Swatch

Maybelline launched Gold Digger Collection in their Colorshow nail polish a while back and I will be reviewing a few of their shades in a series of posts. Here I am reviewing a gorgeous top coat from this range ~ Bling Thing 902.

 

Maybelline colorshow bling thing

 

Price: Rs 145

Bling Thing 902 is transparent nail polish with confetti of glitters. It consists of black and gold glitter in 3 sizes- small dot sized, medium hexagons and big chunky golden hexagonal. The big hexagons have holographic effect. One coat is sufficient to apply on top of another nail polish color, but you can apply two coats as well if you want to go overboard with the glitter and bling. In the photos below, I have applied 2 coats on my index finger and 1 coat on the rest.

The packaging is standard packaging of their Colorshow nailpolish. It comes in cylindrical glass bottle with black cap. The shade name is engraved on top of the cap. The brush is decent and picks up enough glitter to be applied in 1 coat. This nail polish is loaded with the glitters which remain suspended and does not settle down at the bottom of the bottle. The glitter does not tug and the nail polish settles into a smooth finish.

This is one funky confetti nail polish which can jazz up your nails in no time.
