5th Wedding Anniversary Celebrations and Nails

Hi All, How was your weekend? Mine was fantastic. 23 Nov'13 was our 5th Wedding Anniversary. I can't believe it's 5 years already; time flies!!!My hubby gifted me some really nice nail art stuff. Thank you so much my love :) Special thanks to my cousin from US, my mama and mami; who made this happen by getting this stuff for me from US. I couldn't have asked for more :)

Here is a sneak peek of what I got -
1. Kleancolor neon mini set nail polish
2. Konad stamper and scraper
3. Cheeky Stamp plates
4. Coloclub Holographic - Blue Heaven 
5. Seche Vite Top coat
6. Maybelline Color show - Clearly Spotted
7. Revlon Matte Top coat
8. Set of striping tapes

A random pic that we clicked on that day with all the funky stuff on :) 

The mani I wore for my anniversary - Maybelline Color Show Lavender Lies topped with Maybelline Color Show Clearly Spotted. I added Revlon Matte top coat to it. Totally in love with the matte effect :)


Cheeky stamping plates are my first ever stamping plates. I was really excited to try them out and here are two simple manis using the Cheeky stamping plates. I used Colorclub - Blue heaven to stamp on Maybelline Colorshow Denim Dash polish.

For this one, I used #Maybelline Colorshow Bold Gold to stamp on Wet n Wild - Color Haze of Love

I am new to stamping and still exploring it. Enjoying the stamping world !!!

Leopard print nails with Gradient

By now, you all must be knowing my love for Leopard prints. I totally love them and the best part is that they are super easy to make. These Leopard prints are inspired by a top. Aren't they gorgeous!

This was the theme for #ILL Nailart Challenge - Gradient with pattern.


I started with white polish as base. Once it was completely dried I made gradient of light blue, lilac and pink polish using sponge. Then using black polish made Leopard prints and this is the end result.

Really love the way they turned out. Gosh I am so obsessed with Leopard prints!!! Have you tried out animal print nails? Which one is your favourite?

Hi Fellas! What's going on? This weekend was exciting. I met my dad (who was here in Pune to attend a wedding) and some of my relatives. . I finally got my goodies from US. Hurray!!! So happy :) Also watched Krissh 3. It was ok ok types. When would Bollywood stop adding unnecessary songs ...uffff!!!

Here are two manis I made for #ILL Nailart Challenge - Festive and Diwali nails themes on Indian Lacquer Lovers facebook group.

Here I made Akash diya on my thumb nail, Lakshmi footprints on index finger, diya on my pinky and colorful,sparkling sky on middle and accent nails.

This one is simple red and gold stripes with Ganesha free handed. I really liked this one.

Hi friends! How are things? How was your Diwali? Mine didn’t go well. I was sick and my son is still unwell. He is doing better now. Hope he gets well soon.

Alright coming to today’s post. I have been nominated for ‘Versatile Blogger Award’ by three lovely ladies – Subha Bose, Rachna Sharma and Asmitha Vivek. Receiving an award is always encouraging :)

A big hug and thank you for nominating me and sorry ladies just didn’t find time to write about this. So caught up in life for past few weeks. 

Here are seven things about me –

1)      I can speak English, Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, Kutchi and broken Kannada. Now this is coz I am a Maharastrian, born and brought up in Hyderabad whose neighbors spoke Kannada and married to a Kutchi J. I have lost touch with Kannada though.

2)      I dislike men who underestimate women or feel women should sit at home and take care of only household or are too orthodox and have restrictions on women. I feel women should be given equal rights and opportunities as men and treated with respect. After all women are equally strong.


3)      I am a total foodie. It is really difficult for me to control on food. Whenever I join gym I diet only for those months and manage to shed few pounds but then I get back to my old bad eating habits. Need to control it J


4)      I am a shopaholic. I might go over board and buy things at a go. In fact after starting my blog, I have realized I have purchased so many cosmetics and most of them are untouched or just used couple of timesL. I have decided not to spend more than Rs500-1000/month on cosmetics and that I will not buy something which I wouldn’t really use much. Let us see how long I stick to this ;)


5)      I am Libran and truly have typical Libran qualities like being Independent, making friends, being social, peacemaker, being Indecisive. If a situation arises, I simply cannot hurt someone’s feelings and might comprise on my likes to make the other person happy or just to bring a smile and yes at times it’s really difficult for me to take decisions just coz I want to make sure I have taken the best possible decision J My husband surely knows this quality of mine very well.


6)   I love pets. We had a dog when I was a kid. I owned 6 cats and a small aquarium couple of years back when I was in Hyderabad.


7)      I am lazy and hate waking up early but unfortunately I have been in early morning shifts for the past 4 years and wake up @ 5-5:15am Mon-Fri L. I try not to miss my afternoon/evening nap especially since my son doesn’t sleep before 11:30pm-12am in the night. Let me tell you guys all the laziness vanishes once you have a kid. I feel so very zonked. I tend to fall asleep while travelling without even realizing it J My hubby keeps yelling at me – Don’t sleep in the cab!!!

Yeah yeah I know I have made 7 things sound like 70 big things J …lengthy post.
