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
Zoya Perrie Nail Polish

Zoya Perrie Nail Polish

This review is long overdue. I've mentioned this polish in ton's of favourites and it's a perfect "radiant orchid" shade. 2014 is almost over so not that it matters, but it really is the perfect Pantone shade. Zoya Perrie is a creme polish in a lavender-pink inbetween colour. It's hard to pick a side, that makes it really pretty. It's a little bit darker in my comparison swatches but hopefully you get a good idea of the colour. Essie Lilacism is a very light lilac, Perrie is a pinker version of Butter London Molly…Read more
Butter London Nail Polish in No More Waity Kaity

Butter London Nail Polish in No More Waity Kaity

Mid-week crisis is upon me and I'm lagging behind with my posts. I'm hoping things will stabilize but next weekend and I'll be ahead of the curve rather than desperately trying to keep up with my schedule. A very odd nail polish colour for you here. Might not be everyone's favourite but it's certainly unique! Butter London No More Waity Kaity has the unusual combination of lilac glitter in a grey creme base. Yes, that exactly. The formula isn't very opaque as I hoped it would be. It takes 3-4 sheer coats to…Read more

October 2014 Favourites

Time for the monthly favourites. I've had such a crazy Monday, I just want to talk about makeup! A  bunch of things I've been using for the last 2-3 months and some are more recent favourites. So here goes!   01. Lorac Pro Palette :: So I finally got this a few months back and it's pretty much replaced my UD Naked palette. I love the colours! I've used it for subtle everyday looks, night outs with smokey eyes and shimmery looks. Also used it on Diwali and I have a few weddings…Read more
Zoya Alegra Nail Polish

Zoya Alegra Nail Polish

Happy Diwali to everyone! Hope you are all gorging on food and getting dolled up in the evenings! Here's a really pretty pink polish, Zoya Alegra. It's one of the formulas that will make you fall in love with Zoya, much like Valerie. It's a deep, almost red on the nails kind of pink. But it has that fuchsia tone to it. It also has a ton of micro shimmer ranging from silver to fuchsia, it also appears a bit gold  or more red toned due to the iridescence. It's quite captivating in person! Colourwise…Read more

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
Butter London Nail Polish in Rosie Lee

Butter London Nail Polish in Rosie Lee

Okay. Stop reading this, scroll down and look at the pictures, then come back up. Amazing right? It's just so SO darn pretty! My love for Butter London polishes grew exponentially after applying this polish. Rosie Lee is a glitter polish in a deep rose coppery gold colour and metallic. The glitter is small in size and very dense in a clear base. One layer is sheer but you get opaque coverage with 2-3 coats. The layers are thin in consistency so they also dry quickly. This is how all glitter polishes should…Read more

August 2014 Favourites

It's that time of the month to share my favourites! I have a few unusual ones here, because I can't really bring myself to fully review a hand wash and a hand sanitizer. Let's get cracking!       01. Eye Cream : Clinique : All About Eyes Rich After my trip in June, my eye area was in serious trouble. It was extremely dry and I thought it might be best to start using an eye cream. Now, this is mainly for hydrating the area. Other concerns like dark circles ( mine…Read more
