Black & White Leopard Print with Rhinestones

Good morning everyone!! This week I decided to go black & white, & then jazz it up further.
I used 3 coats of white as my base for the leopard print & added silver dots with the polish brush itself. Used black acrylic paint for the leopard details. On the middle I've used Maybelline Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva. I'm so glad I pick the gold & silver ones from this range as they go with a variety of shades. Finally on the ring finger I applied 2 coats of black & used my favorite Revlon topcoat to stick the rhinestones. I quite like the final look & hope you do too :)

Vintage Roses with Pearls & Glitter

Good morning everyone!! I love using 3D elements in my manis but wasn't able to for quite some time due to the absence of my favorite Revlon topcoat/glue. I was finally able to lay my hands on it last week, that too at a discounted price (thanks to the numerous sales everywhere). This week its a pretty mint polish with roses and dots on it. The index finger has some simple glitter on it, but the show stealer, as per my husband, is the ring finger. Nothing spells vintage like pearls & I added to it with a rhinestone & some gold beads. I'm really loving the look, hope you like it too :)

Pastel Pink with Hello Kitty

Good morning everyone!! I'm actually finding it quite difficult to decide what to do with my nails ever since I'd to cut them short. Having kept my nails shaped square for a number of years makes it difficult for me to see them otherwise. So I decided to do something simple and what better than to use some pretty decals, especially Hello Kitty :) I've applied a pastel pink polish, used a dotting tool for the yellow & hot pink dots & then applied the decals. The pink base is a local polish & is very pretty, but quite streaky as well. Even three coats couldn't solve the issue.

Lavender with Pink Glitter

I could go on and on about this, but I'll try to sum up my problems in a single sentence: I chipped a nail. Now under normal circumstances I would've pretended I couldn't see it. But when you take pictures of your nails and post them on the internet for all to see, there's no option other than chopping all the others off for the sake of uniformity. I decided to do something simple for the week and turned towards this gorgeous lavender polish which I received as part of a wedding gift.Two coats of polish, some pretty pink glitter and I'm done. The combination looks WAY better in actual and is one of the rare few manis which I've worn nearly three times till date. Enjoy the pics :)

Dark Blue and Glitter

Good morning everyone!! Wanted to do something simple and blingy for an event over the weekend and  this is what I came up with. I've sponged the glitters which I think looks better compared to direct brush application. Hope you like it :)
