China Glaze Water You Waiting For Nail Polish

China Glaze Water You Waiting For Nail Polish

Hey guys! It's been a fun weekend so far! I saw The Imitation Game, I'm planning my Goa trip and to top it off, Man City lost which means Chelsea are in the clear! :D I got to do the fun part of unboxing this weekend, organizing my closet and makeup. I finally have a good amount of space where I can lay things out the way I've always wanted to. I cannot tell you, the amount of time spent in research and self reflection to finally draw up a plan of how I…Read more
Zoya Caitlin Nail Polish

Zoya Caitlin Nail Polish

I know, I know, you're tired of reading about Zoyas on this blog. But I've been determined to review them all this year! I think I'm almost there, here's the handy Zoya Swatch Post. Zoya Caitlin is a really pretty periwinkle blue with silver shimmer running through it. The shimmer also shows up well and evenly on the nail, it's a very winter shade. In the not-so-large spectrum of periwinkle blues, this one is slightly muted while China Glaze Secret Periwinkle is just a little bit brighter. I often find that shades like…Read more
China Glaze Tempest Nail Polish

China Glaze Tempest Nail Polish

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! I had a bit of a closet purge, sorting out clothes for donation. Attacking the shoe closet next! You might already know, I have a thing for blurple nail polishes. I think I've found one with the perfect balance. Is it purple? Is it blue? I can't make up my mind and I love it! China Glaze Tempest is a pearlescent nail polish with a purple base and fine blue shimmer. The shimmer is a bit duochrome and shifts the blue tone from dark…Read more
Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe Nail Polish

Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe Nail Polish

If I had to pick just one kind of makeup out of all to live with, I'd be nail polish. It's my first love and the fact that pretty much any colour will do is what makes it so special. I don't consider myself to be one with the best nails, I spend very little time grooming them. But I do love nail polish, always have. This particular one I've wanted for a very very long time. It was always on my wishlist and I can't tell you how excited I was when I…Read more
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Winter Wonder

Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Winter Wonder

Winter is coming! The one good thing about Pune is the weather. If you're someone who moves from Mumbai to Pune, it's the first thing you appreciate. I like that I can actually wear scarves and fluffy sweaters! Moving on the same theme is this next nail polish from Sinful Colors, aptly named Winter Wonder. Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Winter Wonder is a really nice holiday shimmer polish. It's a dark steel gray, almost dark blue base with a ton of blue, yellow, green and red shimmer. The shimmer highlighted depends on the lightning though…Read more
China Glaze Frostbite Nail Polish

China Glaze Frostbite Nail Polish

It's the kind of colour that makes your heart skip a beat, shines in your eyes because it's so bright and pretty much blinds everyone else. China Glaze Frostbite is a really bright cobalt blue. The name frostbite for me indicates a icy white frosty kind of shade. But this one will do as well! It's like the poster colour blue you get in bottles with a pearlescent effect. The shimmer is a lighter blue which looks really amazing in direct light. The shimmer is not quite as complex as something like Chanel…Read more
Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Nail Polish in Azure

Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Nail Polish in Azure

There are handful of colours which make my heart stop (hopefully not literally) when I see them. Dark blues, blurples... you can see why this purchase was made. Sally Hansen Lustre Shine in Azure is that perfect metallic royal blue or a sapphire blue which doesn't look purple or navy! If you are a blurple fanatic like me, you know how important this is! It's actually a royal blue and black duochrome. When you apply the first layer, it almost looks grey with blue iridescence. It's a very sheer polish and you need…Read more
Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

To be very honest, I don't always follow the seasonal trends when it comes to nail polish. My mood and what catches my eye pretty much dictates what I'm wearing at the moment. But for those who do, here are my top 10 picks for spring and summer! I like blues, greens and this year, the radiant orchid shade as well. Let's get started!       01. H&M Newlyweds - This is a lovely sheer polish which has a milky white base and gold shimmer densely scattered. It looks very understated and…Read more
Max Factor Mini Effect Nail Polish in Fantasy Fire

Max Factor Mini Effect Nail Polish in Fantasy Fire

Today I'm bringing you yet another nail polish that is utterly gorgeous. But not the best buy for the price though. I saw it for the first time on this blog and I just had to have it! It's part of the Mini Nail Polish line which are these tiny cute polish bottles. I lot of them are gorgeous complex shades including shimmers and duochromes. Anyway, I'll get down to business. Fantasy Fire is a layering sheer polish with a MAJOR duochrome shift. It's a blue-indigo base with shimmer that shifts from orange to green. It's…Read more
Formula X for Sephora Nail Polish in Orbit

Formula X for Sephora Nail Polish in Orbit

I've had a mad week recovering from a cough but things are slowly getting back to normal. I feel like this month went by in a flash! That aside, here's another nail polish from the Formula X for Sephora range. Orbit is a true navy blue and one from the New Classics or cream finish range. It's on the darker side but a gorgeous staple kind of shade. But I'm not too impressed with the quality, especially at the price. It's thick consistency wise and that makes application a bit more tedious. It can…Read more
