52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge - 2 Colour Gradient and Teal


So, yes as name suggests, I am participating in this new challenge organized by a facebook group, I am part of. In 52 week pick n mix challenge, there will be two challenge prompts(one technique and other color) for each week. one can either do two different manis for each of them or can combine both and do a single mani. Another rule is to try oldies or untried polishes to create manis, which i really like as i have lots of untried polishes. 

This week's prompts are "2 color gradient" and color "teal". I decided to combine them and do a single mani. Here's my manicure. 

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.

Sheer Base and Lace


India is famous for lots of things and one of them is our year-round festive celebrations. This particular time of the year brings most exciting and celebrated festivals in the whole country. We are celebrating Navratri these days. It is nine day long festival where we worship goddess Durga and do fast for nine days(though, there are lots of food we cook specially for fast, and it is very yummy).   

Another thing to celebrate is ISRO's(Indian Space Research Organiztion) huge success with Mangalyaan entering into Mars orbit. Not only India is first Asian country to do so but we are first country in the world to get success in first attempt. So proud of our scientists. 

Coming to today's manicure, I saw some beautiful sheer base manicures on instagram and wanted to try it myself. So here is my sheer base lace nail art.

In Mood for Halloween


I know its too early for halloween manicures but September is going to end soon, so I thought why not try one or two subtle halloween manicures. I didn't do any extreme halloween characters, just basic red and black inspired nail art

Friday, is always the happiest day of the week for me and pre-orders of new iPhone starting today is yet another reason to be more happy. I was waiting for this launch as I have been looking for a new phone and  I just placed my order few mins ago.

Anyway, today's post is also special and with lots of pictures too. Polish Me Silly(formerly Lush Lacquer) released their Mega Multichromes collection. I like multichrome polishes and this collection is just stunning. I bought three of them and they are too beautiful to share in a single post, so I am going to share them in couple of posts. Today, I have swatches of Paradise to share.

El Corazon "Jelly Neon" Polishes as Sheer Tints


How was the weekend? Spring is started here in Australia and now we see sun more often. I am so loving it because it has been really long (ten months long)winters for me as I was in UK till april and moved to Australia in May which is kinda start of winters here. Anyway, I am happy that finally i can get rid of coats and jackets.  

Enough of rant, today I am sharing few nail arts which I did using El Corazon "jelly neon" collection(swatched here). When i reviewed those polishes, I said that these will work great as sheer tint polishes. I tried them and they didnt disappoint me.

El Corazon Active Bio-gel "Jelly Neon" Collection Swatches


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. 

These polishes are a better version of opi sheer tints in sense that these are not as sheer as them yet perfect for layering over other colors as well as can be wear on their own without any base colour. Formula of these polishes is very nice, not gloppy unlike sheer tints and smooth.
