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
Butter London Nail Polish in Toff

Butter London Nail Polish in Toff

A while back I got my hands on a bunch of Butter London nail polishes. They look stunning and so are the formulas. Today I'm reviewing Butter London Toff which is a creme deep plumy brown. There is some dustiness to the shade which gives it a really sophisticated look. I really love the shade; it's also a darker office appropriate neutral. The quality is amazing as well. The creme polish is opaque in one coat, though you might prefer 2 coats depending on how big your nail bed is. The consistency is…Read more
Zoya Trixie Nail Polish

Zoya Trixie Nail Polish

My love for my Zoyas is pretty well documented here, today I'm reviewing a brilliant shade called Trixie. Most of favorite Zoya polishes are either creme or dense microshimmers. This one clearly falls in the later and oh boy, it gives beautiful metallic foil like effect which is very reflective. As you might have guessed, it's a silver microshimmer polish. I also like there's no other tone to it like yellow or blue, it's straight up bright silver. The base is actually a bit sheer with very very dense microshimmer. Hence, you need…Read more
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Gilded

Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Gilded

Time for another nail polish review! I really like collecting unique nail polishes, this one really caught my eye when I was going through ebay. Sinful Colors is a brand that makes very very affordable polish at $1.99. Their range is huge, competing with OPI and China Glaze; you can also find a lot of dupes! Despite the price, they are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP which is another win! Going back to the review, here's the shade Gilded. So, it has red and gold glittery bits in a clear but slightly milky…Read more
Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva, Red Carpet and Starry Night

Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva, Red Carpet and Starry Night

So if you've been reading the blogs, everyone's going crazy over the new Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania nail polishes! They might just be the best thing launched in the new year so far! I may be a budding lipstick addict but I'm still a nail polish addict at heart. Add glitter into the mix and I'm floored. Ever since the textured nail polishes were launched, all the expensive ones like OPI Liquid Sand, Zoya Pixie Sand just aren't very easily available in India. But the Colorshow ones are amazing quality and the…Read more
Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more
Just Swatches : OPI Nail Polish

Just Swatches : OPI Nail Polish

Time for another swatch post! Here's my collection of OPI nail polishes. You'll notice most of them are dark, murky colours. I really like their shimmer polishes, I don't have too many brights. It's too difficult for me to pick a favourite because I like so many of them. But my most worn colours are probably Parlez-Vous, Ink, My Private Jet and The World Is Not Enough.   01. Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ - It's a creme finish and a perfect fall colour, a lovely vampy burgundy. 02. Every Month is Oktoberfest - This…Read more
Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish in Wintermint

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish in Wintermint

I have a lovely nail polish to review today! It also happens to be a dupe (with minor variations) for Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream which has me squeeing on the inside. Revlon Parfumerie launched in the US a couple of months ago. Basically they are cute bottles with good quality scented nail polish. I don't really care about the scented part but Wintermint has a nice minty scent. Wintermint has a mint green base with gold and green micro glitter along with large teal glitters suspended in it. From afar it looks like…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
