El Corazon Matte n Shine 161 + Pueen 79


Today's post showing another El-Corazon beauty with an image stamped from new Pueen buffet(leisure) stamping plate. 

El Corazon matte n shine collection has fourteen shimmer-y polishes that dries matte. I have got couple of them and you will see me using them in my upcoming nail arts(see no. 162 here).  formula of this collection is great. Requires just a single medum coat or two thin coats to cover nail. I have a feeling that these will work as stamping polish too considering how opaque they are. I used two thin coats for the pictures and no top coat.

Wildlife Nail Art


This is certainly a shopping season for nail community. Every week something new releasing and last two week been very harsh on my bank account. I placed several orders and they started coming last friday. Keep in touch on my Instagram account to see my haul pics. So, the whole point of the rant is that bundle monster also released CYO 2014(create your own) stamping plate set few days back and I received it within six days. This is my first manicure with it. 

I am not regular in doing 52 Weeks Pick n Mix challenge but the good thing about this challenge is that, its not compulsory to do all the themes. This week's theme is "Animals-Wild or Yellow". In an other facebook group the challenge theme is wildlife, so I decided to do a wildlife manicure for both the challenge and here it is:

Halloween Series: Gothic Damask Pattern Nail Art!!


Buying new polishes is the most exciting thing to do for nail polish addicts. We sleep late in night, waiting for new restocks, wait for mailman like crazy and nothing in the world gives us as much happiness as getting a nail mail. We buy and buy and sometime when we casually go through nail storage, we find hidden untried polish gems.  Well, that is what happened with me yesterday. I was looking for my clean up brush and i went through my a-england polishes row to see if the brush fall down there somehow. I couldnt find thr brush there but A-England Jane Eyre caught my eye and i remembered that i loved this polish and was so excited to get it but never tried it.  So, that's how i chose the base for today's manicure.

Happy Diwali !!!


Today is Diwali, a very auspicious and most celebrated Indian festival. Diwali is also called "festival of lights" and is celebrated for victory of light over darkness, good over evil.  We also worship goddess lakshmi on this day and light up oil lamps to welcome goddess. Fireworks are also important part of the Diwali.  I remember the whole neighborhood gather outside their houses and burst firecrackers for hours. It was so much fun, this was the second best part which i use to love as kid, best part was getting gifts. Anyway, what i want to say is that, I love Diwali and miss celebrating it with family in India.  

Here, I am sharing my Diwali nail art , featuring some of the aspects of Diwali.

Celebrating India's MARS Orbiter Mission "Mangalyaan"


I mentioned in my previous post about India's Mars Orbiter Mission "Mangalyaan". The spacecraft(called Mangalyaan) successfully inserted into MARS orbit on 24th September 2014. 

ISRO(India Space Research Organization) is fourth space agency in the world to do so. Also, India is first nation in the world to achieve this in first attempt and first Asian nation to do this. Not only that, It is the cheapest MARS orbiter programme till now and costed less than movie Gravity, incredible right. I did a nail art to celebrate this achievement of ISRO. Inspiration for this nail art is an image i found on internet.

Today I have another El Corazon collection to share. Jelly Neon collection released this year may or june .  Collection has seven polishes and as name suggests they are jelly finish neon polishes.
