Golden Polka Dots nail art

 

It has been a while since I last posted Nail art. I had the pics of this nail art lying and I thought to put it to better use 😛

I love polka dots nail art as they are easiest to do without much effort and look the funkiest. I have done other Polka dots nail art. Do check it HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

This is one super simple nail art and all you need is a bobby pin/ toothpick/ dotting tool and nailpolish of your choice.

I clicked the pics after 2-3 days I did the nail art that is why you can see tip wear on my nails.

I have used Maybelline Colorshow nailpolish in shade Bold Gold.

Maybelline Colorshow Party Girl nailpolish : Party Lights 118 ~ Swatch & Review

Every girl must own a few glitter polish to glamour up the nails every now and then, and Maybelline has some amazing glitter nailpolish selection. Maybelline launched Party Girl collection last year in their Colorshow range. This range has gorgeous glitter shades with different color palette. I have already reviewed two shades of this range before : Tequila Sunrise (1st in pic above) and Fireworks (3rd in pic above). In this post I am reviewing another beautiful shade: Party Lights 118

 

Price: Rs 175 for 6 ml

 

 

Party Lights 118 is a beautiful silverish purple color nail polish with purple hexagonals and glitter suspended in a purple baseThe nailpolish has silver shimmer which gives this naipolish a beautiful silverish sheen making it look like foil nailpolish. 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. The purple glitter and hexagonals doesnot look stark against the base color like in other shades of this range. Instead, it gives a beautiful diffused shimmer to this shade.

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 enough nailpolish for one coat. It takes 2-3 coats for full color intensity as one coat is slightly sheer.

Party Lights 118 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

The tip wear/chipping starts after 3-4 days, which is quite okay, as I don’t expect these polish to be super long lasting.

Maybelline has another purple glitter nail polish from their Glitter Mania range. You can check the swatches HERE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, this is a beautiful purple glitter nailpolish with a silverish sheen. This nailpolish is loaded with glitter and 2-3 coats give full coverage. This is a beautiful color to glamour up the nails. I will probably repurchase this when this bottle gets over.

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 gold digger

 

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

I have reviewed the first two shades in the pic above HERE and HERE

Price: Rs 145

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
