Merry Christmas and Christmas nails

Wish you all a Merry Christmas! Did you all get lovely gifts? How did you celebrate Christmas? I had a great time with my family. There was a small Christmas party at our society's club house. It was fun.

We had 7 days #Festivenails challenge going on at Indian Lacquer Lovers group on facebook. I managed to come up with 5 designs. You can check out my previous designs here

1.Christmas tree and Elf nail art
2. Snowflakes nail art

Today's first design is Peppermint swirls nail art. Using a paint brush I freehanded these on my thumb,index and middle fingers . On accent and pinky I applied glitter polish over silver base. I used the tutorial on to make these swirls.

Christmas tree and Elf nail art

Hello everyone! How are the holidays going on? I am looking forward for Christmas Celebrations :)

Today I have two #Christmas manis to share with you all but with my tiny nails. Guys I happen to break two of my nails and then cut all my nails :( They look so small now. I could come up with only these simple manis for Christmas.

First one is pretty simple. I made Christmas tree on my thumb and accent nails and random dots on the rest of the nails. I used OPI Alpine Snow, Maybelline Downton Red, Maybelline Verde Palmeria and #WnW
Gold Fergie for this design.

Nail Art inspired by painting - #ILLNail art challenge

Hi friends! How are you all doing? We are nearing Christmas holiday season. Are you all excited ? I will posting my Christmas manis soon :)

Today I have nail art that I had made few weeks back but didn't find time to post. It was for #ILLNail art challenge inspired by art and the condition was to use only three nail polishes. Phew it was tough to decide which colors to choose.

Finally I came up with this. I used three nail polishes and acrylic paints for this look. This nail art is inspired by a painting found on google.

Sally Hansen Pacific Blue with stamping

 Today I have blue polish and some stamping for you all. I am a sucker of blue polishes and have so many already. My new favourite is Pacific Blue from Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear collection. I am in love with this blue polish. Sally Hansen Xtreme wear collection is priced at Rs250 and available in most of leading Indian stores; these polishes are awesome and dry pretty fast.
I am new to the world of stamping and learning the art of stamping. I wanted to try out some images from my Cheeky stamping plates collection and used OPI's Alpine snow for stamping. Isn't the blue and white combination beautiful?
On my thumb, index and middle finger nails I used image from CH5. They reminded me of spaceships :) . For my accent nail I used all stars pattern from CH4 and on pinky small star's pattern.


 I had difficulty using small images on these cheeky plates like the small star pattern, those tiny spaceships on the CH4 plate. My Konad stamper just didn't seem to pick up the entire image. I guess it could be the etching on these plates. Did any of you face similar issues with smaller images?

Waterfall manicure

Hello friends! I am enjoying my two weeks of stay at Hyderabad(my maika) hence MIA these days. I have been so so lazy these days. I got my stuff that I had ordered from US - Bundle Monster CYO plates, WnW nail polishes, few cuticle care products. I couldn't wait to try out these polishes and here is what I came up with - Waterfall manicure. This is inspired by The Nailasaurus. She is simply awesome.


I painted my accent and pinky nails with Color Club - Miss Bliss holo and rest of the nails with WnW Tickled pink polish. This is my second holographic polish and I must say I am in love with Colorclub holos.


Then with a nail art striping brush I used rest of the polishes to create waterfall pattern using this tutorial - Here is the end result. I really liked the waterfall mani although I bumped my middle finger you can see that spot clearly in pics.

Let me know what you guys think of this mani. Also check out The Nailasaurus's tutorial.
