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
Essie DJ Play That Song Nail Polish

Essie DJ Play That Song Nail Polish

It's a shade perfect for summer with a cheesy name. Oh, it's also a radiant orchid shade! What else do you need? Essie DJ Play That Song came out in the 2013 Neon collection. It's a jelly polish (similar to Maybelline Colorshow). You can use this by itself or over a white nail polish but you get different colours. Over the nail by itself, you get the colour as shown in the swatches below, it looks more pink/fuchsia. Over white you get a colour closer to that in the bottle. It's also described…Read more
China Glaze Fast Track Nail Polish

China Glaze Fast Track Nail Polish

There's going to be an onslaught of nail polish reviews this month, starting with this one! I love my neutral murky polishes and this one is a great colour. China Glaze Fast Track was released with the Hunger Games collection. It's a beige neutral with tons of gold microshimmer. I love how the shimmer spreads evenly and really makes this colour no so boring. The polish is sheer and the consistency is thin. You get 2-3 coats to get a nice opaque look but it looks very smooth and even. The thin coats…Read more

April 2014 Favourites

It's time for the monthly favourites! This is a bit of March and April combined! As you can see there are quite a few nail polishes. I think I just forget to include nail polishes quite often in these. When I do remember, I tend to include a lot of them. Also if you're interested, I did a Top 10 Spring Nail Polishes post a while back. Here we go!   01. Nail Polish : Colorbar : Apple Martini It's a gorgeous green shade and I love wearing this on my toes.  …Read more
