Black & White

Good morning everyone!! Last week was pretty busy for me. It was my husband's birthday & being his first birthday post marriage, I wanted everything to be extra special for him. I spent the week buying gifts, wrapping them prettily, planning for the day & finally, baking his favorite chocolate cake. With very little time left, I wanted to do my nails in a simple way & this is what I came up with.
I selected black & white as the base colors & used gold striping tape & a gold stud to jazz it up. The finished look turned out to be simple yet elegant. Liked it??

Materials Used

Black: Revlon Knock Out
White: NYX White

Feeling Blue

Good morning everyone!! I'm freezing here as I's so COLD!! I wait all year long for the weather to cool down, but now that it has finally happened, I've been feeling quite lethargic & prefer to spend my time reading & rustling up delicious hot meals. That means I haven't been painting my nails as often as I normally do. But today I have a wedding to attend & I chose to do my nails in a color matching my sari. I applied 2 coats of a light blue polish, 1 light coat of glitter & finished it with studs, rhinestones & beads. I love how simple & gorgeous this design is. Agree with me??

Christmas Nails

Good morning everyone!! I know this post is shamelessly late, but I'd so much happening in the last couple of weeks that I just couldn't find the time to post the nails I did for Christmas. There was illness, a number of outings, trying to spend as much time as possible with our family & my brother leaving for Australia for further studies yesterday. I'm gonna miss him badly :(
Coming back to the mani, I applied 2 coats of a dark green polish, sponged on some fine gold glitter polish on the lower half & used beads & rhinestones to create the look of tree ornaments. On the ring finger, 2 coats of red, tape & green polish to create the tree, chunky glitters for the ornaments & a star stud to finish the look. This looked really stunning in person & I'm so proud of it. What do you think??
