Hi Snowballs, it is very exciting to do nail art after long and finally share with you guys .In the last 18 days, I have managed to do only 2 nail arts. The last time I did nail art was 18 days back and this one I did yesterday. Such a great feeling!!
I am not very fond of winters but this nail art actually made me fall for it. I was not actually aiming for this look but ended up here. And I am glad I did, because I am kinna happy with it The last time I did nail art was ‘I Hate winters‘. And now with this nail I show my love to the snow and our own snowman. I still hate winters, but I am just trying to show another aspect of it.

Girls, when I went to Delhi for Diwali….I used to doll up almost everyday and match up a nail art to that!! I thoroughly enjoyed the fashion parade there . So I wore a really gorgeous saree this day so I definitely needed something to match up to the look. I recently hauled from buyincoins which had lots of nail art accessories.
Although I wanted to do glam nail art but I would get late dressing up eating up all my time to do nail art. So I would rarely manage to do an elaborate nail art. In those tough times, I would often seek help from.

Hi All, today I am to share with you a very special nail art. I was Delhi for Diwali and my husband’s birthday falls on 9th November. Now, when I knew his birthday was going to fall in a place I knew nothing about , I should have planned something in advance. But I didn’t because we were awefully busy last month
So the eve of 8th Nov, I had nothing for the birthday. No Gift, No cake and no plan. I told my sister in law who stays near by to get a cake on her way home and came up with this nail art to make him feel special and surprised. And to add to my distress, my uncle (sister in laws father) unknowingly told him on his face “Kirti has gone to get your cake” when he called him.
I knew now nothing possibly can go wrong, my only hope was my nail art. I also made dinner for him with his help of course.
I had been waiting to use ‘Constant Candy’ from Color Show for long. I decided to use it for my hubby’s B’day Nails. I wanted it to have a soft look and pink is the color of love so I went it. . I used N.NAIL Strawberry Head Little Girl Nail Water Decals which had this Happy Birthday Sticker in it.
Fot rest of the fingers I decided to do birthday cake and candles.So I used the decal on my fore and ring finger. With the help of acrylic paints I drew cake and candle with free hand. I loved the color of flame, it came out realistic.
I also clicked a picture without cakes, do you think they were good on their own? I should have not drawn the cake?
My husband and my father in law were impressed by the nail art. How did you guys find it?? Does it seem special to you too??

Hi All, you may be aware that I had been to Delhi to my in laws for Diwali. I used to practically dress up every day for some or the other occasion. Either we had some guests coming or we were going as guests. But in all this run around, I kept on changing my nail paints and nail art everyday. I wanted it to match my dress.
Now the nail art I am sharing with you today is done to complement a black and white stripe knit top. Me and hubby were going to Meerut to visit a friend of his whose wife was expecting. Meerut is 1 to 1.5 hours drive from Delhi, so I agreed for the trip.
We had come back home at 4am the previous night (practically same day) after watching an excruciating long movie Krissh 2. And then we started at 11am the next morning (practically same morning). Do you think I had time between 4am to 11 am to change my nail paint and do a nail art. NO!! I was struggling to sleep even.
Anyways, I stepped into the car with no nail polish. But me being me, I carried a black and white nail paint and some accessory in the car with an ambitious dream of doing the entire polish and art in a moving car. And I succeeded indeed in my ambitious mission. One says correctly “Where there is will there is way”!!.
So here is what I did in car:
- Applied Base Coat and let it dry.
- Applied a coat of Maybelline Colorshow Porcelain White without dripping or dropping the paint and allowed it to dry.
- Applied another coat of Maybelline Colorshow Porcelain White and let it dry.
- Sponged the tips of my nails with Maybelline ColorShow Black Color with Konad Sponging Set.
- Did the cleanup job.
- Applied a beautiful dark pink glitter polish on top to get hold of some bling. The white and black alone looked bland.
- Sealed with a top coat.
Phhew!!! Please girls do not forget I was in a moving car (with some traffic jams in between) while did all this.No one likes traffic jams but I did not seem to mind one since it gave me time in between to some precision work!! I am quite impressed that I ever thought I could do this thing in a moving car (sitting on front seat) and even more amazed on how I was able to do it.
Ok, Yes…I am proud of it and my will power I hope you liked my nail art esp considering my dare of dong this in a moving car. Do you have similar experiences to share?
I am in not much of a talking mood today and probably there is nothing that I have not said about the awesome Maybelline Color Show Nail Paints in the past. They have taken care that the shades they have launched are not the ones ordinarily flooded in market. I hate to see awefully common colors on new launches. But Maybelline has nice nudes and dusty colors.
About Maybelline Color Show : Stay right on trend from your tips to your toes with new Maybelline Color Show. Our gel based formula with color popping pigments, comes in 40 bold, super stylish shades that look great on nails. So go on, mix, match and make the most of color.
Quantity and Price: 6ml for Rs 75
Color : The name really says it all about the color here. It is truly a Sea green shade. However, if I say a dirty sea green color it would have been more apt. I love the color. It is a dirty sea green color in matte with grey undertones. The color is gorgeous when wore on its own while is a lovely base for nail art. I like such colors. Its green with a difference.
Pigmentation and Texture : The polish is creamy and jelly in texture. It is very smooth on application and glides easily. The pigmentation is a two coater. A gorgeous shine once you have finished application is guaranteed. All the pictures are taken without top coat as I do for all my reviews. And you can see the richness for yourself.
At this price the color and finish is a steal. I am so impressed!!!!
Overall : I love the unique color (I hate common colors). And the finish is gellish. So I will go with 5/5 .
It has been sometime that I have been wanting to try out these Nail Water Decals and I am so happy I am finally sharing this with you. Few months back KKCentrehk contacted me checking if I would review their products. I decided flip through their website and I was so clueless after browsing their Nail Water Decals Section. I took a long time to select the water decals I wanted to review. Trust me when I say this “I was SPOILT for choice ” . They have like an ocean full of variety and genre of decals. Loads of designs and patterns to choose from. Don’t believe me ??? I bet you wont if you check this link . As per their site they have 2323 types of Decals…..Now that’s what I call SPOILT for choice . I was feeling so greedy seeing them all that I almost wanted to pick all of them.
The decal that I used is N.NAIL Strawberry Head Little Girl Nail Water Decals and is priced $5.75 . Yes I do agree, they are a bit over priced as compared to the market competitors. But the plethora of options you get and unparallel designs partially justify the price. They do have ‘Free International Shipping’ which is a must have at this price.
I used Maybelline Silk Stockings Nail Polish as the base color. I wanted a sober base to highlight the subltleness of these decals. But now I think I could have used brighter colors which would have brought out the beauty of these decals even more . But anyways, these aren’t bad either. They are cute, classy and chick.
I also added a little bow to alternate fingers to try out the look and add a little bit of brightness and girly bit to it. I am not sure if it was better off without it . You take the call. I am happy with both.
I found this design in particular very unique and sweet. The market is flooded with feathers and flower decals. This one is like a breath of fresh air
How to Use Nail Water Decal
- Cut each decal out as close to the image as you can then
- Paint your nail with any base color as usual and let polish dry completely.
- Put the decal in some water for 15 sec. Using a Tweezer or your sharp nails separate the white backing paper
- Place the decal on your nail and take some clear polish and paint over the nails.
- Cut each decal out as close to the image as you can then, paint your nail a light color (white, clear, ect.) Let polish dry. Put the decal in some water for 15 sec. Then remove the white backing. Place the decal on your nail and take some clear polish and paint over the decal several coats.
- Viola, you have the prettiest designs and patterns on your nails in seconds without the effort of painting
How did you find the nail art and the decals?? I loved them for everything but price. So I would rate them 4/5 ( -1 for being kinna pricy, at least to me) . However, the good news is you can avail 10% discount by using my coupon code. I hope this would ease up the purchase.
