Sephora Beauty Haul – Mallorca.

 

I’m just back from the Spanish island, Mallorca and I’m still, rejoicing those wonderful moments and it was one of the best Spring breaks that I ever had and now, I’m feeling totally energetic and thoroughly refreshed. Well, I hope you are all having an awesome Spring break too. Mallorca is an amazing sunny destination in Europe and it is flooded with holiday makers from all over the Europe. Well, stepping into Sephora is a must if you are a true beauty blogger and me not in exception either and viola! It absolutely looks like a beauty haven. Now, let me jump onto the items that I’ve grabbed from there.

Sephora Cleansing Cream:

Firstly, let me start with skin care and I purchased the above item as it has gorgeous scent of rose which is Spring – friendly and also, Sephora-made cleansing creams are quite popular which is another reason to buy this item.

Sephora Peony Creamy Body Wash:

Well, peony is one of the concoction ingredient that is widely used in most of the fragrances and a body wash with that flavour is irresistible, isn’t it?

Tony Moly Face Mask:

Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch:

Panda is my favourite animal and dreamy panda eye sounds so good and I love the cute packaging of panda on this product.

A good top coat and base coat is always a must and I fell in love with this basic essential nail care product as it has wide bristled brushes.

Pink Nails Are A Major Comeback For This Season.

11jan16

Happy Mani-Monday! If you are a regular watcher of Keeping Up With Kardashians, then you might have not missed the teen beauty, Kylie Jenner’s pink nails which was telecasted last week and as always, she absolutely nailed it. So, with that as an inspiration, I made up my mind to paint my nails in pink and moreover, it’s been quite a while that I had pink nails on and also, soon after the glossy finish, I felt like my nails were embraced with a colourful bouquet of spring flowers. Awesome! Not only just Kylie alone, even in the latest Boots Magazine, the model on the cover page had a gorgeously matte pink nail candies and so, what are we waiting for? Let’s get started.

Application:

  1. Start the procedure with a well cleaned and washed nails.
  2. Apply cuticle oil if needed.
  3. Then, apply your preferred regular base coat onto your nails.
  4. Now, apply two layers of Rimmel London 60 seconds super shine by Rita Ora sweet retreat onto your nails.
  5. Then, add a single layer of top coat onto your nails.
  6. Lastly, to take out any excess bits onto the outer perimeter of your nails, run along a cotton bud that is previously soaked up with nail polish remover
  7. Now, your nails are ready to show off.

Special Features of Rimmel London’s Sweet Retreat:

Well, Rimmel London’s Sweet Retreat is one of those amazing nail polishes in which the consistency is quintessentially easier to work with and the flat brush detail tends to give a precise and even application and hence, you only need to coat 2 layers to bring in a fuller hued opacity look. Besides, this nail varnish dries up quickly as the name says and it also seemed to be chip-free for quite long. Furthermore, in order to keep up with the current trend of bringing spring colours earlier, I’m certainly sure that this chic shade is going to rock like any other for this winter.

So, that comes to the end of the post and I hope you all love reading this post. Also, don’t forget to drop in your lovely thoughts onto the comment section that is right below.

The weather is pretty much promising this week as there is no sign of black clouds according to forecast and hence, with that as an excuse, today I have just painted my nails with purple shade where in, I could able to keep reminiscing of the late summer look right again. Moreover, we all know that matte shades are getting more popular nowadays and hence, I want to supplement that feature onto my nails to a new matifying shade of purple that looks similar to the gorgeous bunch of lavender flowers in my back garden. So adorable! So, come along with me to get to know how I achieved it.

Before getting deep into the shades, I want to tell you more about the brand, Barry M Cosmetics. Basically, Barry M Cosmetics is a British cosmetic company who specialises in all types of beauty products including foundation cremes, pressing powder, concealers, eyeliner, kohl pencils, eye shadows, mascara, lipstick, lip balm, lip gloss, nail paints and many more. Moreover, they started this company in early 80’s and they offer brilliant beauty products that are relatively in par with the latest trends and also, they deliver high quality products at a very affordable price range.

Matte-Perfect Nails:

I love matte perfect nails and when it comes to purple shade, I can’t resist myself to get into it right away and to attain this look, I have used two gorgeous shades from Barry M Cosmetics with one as Barry M Speedy Nail Paint Need for Speed and the other as Barry M Matte Top Coat.

Furthermore, Barry M speedy quick dry nail paints are quintessential for urban city lovers as it works exemplarily well with people who have shortage of time and you could also achieve perfect manicure in seconds as well. Apparently, Barry M quick dry range uses a very innovative flat brush where the gorgeous bristles in the brush gives an even application and also precise look of nail paint every time on your nails; plus, the flat brush also assists you to reach all the corners of your nails without a fail.

Besides too, if you are looking for a completely different zero shine look from your usual glossy nail look, then Barry M Matte Top coat gives a perfect answer to your nails as it gives an opaque looking statement matte nails which is perfect to use for all seasonal needs and in further, it also gives an awesome matifying effect instantly with just one coat of it on top of your regular nail polish and also, this matte top coat gives a complete protection of chipping on your nails too. Hence, if you want a rubber like nail look, then apply a thin layer of matte top coat on top of your regular non-metallic nail polish and if you want to opt for a velvet like nail look, then apply a single coat of matte top coat on top of your normal metallic nail polish.

Procedure:

  1. Start the procedure with nicely washed and cleaned nails.

Sunset Palm Beach Nail Candies.

27aug152

Today’s nail art is all set for holiday theme. Moreover, two things are particularly famous in Los Angeles – one is venice beach and number two is avenue styled palm trees that runs along in line parallel to the street. Hence, with that as the inspiration, this time I will be adorning my nails with the gorgeous ombre effect setting of sunset as the background base and palm trees as the forefront runner. Doesn’t it sound wonderful? Besides too, I think there is no other better way to put altogether as a one single capsule. So, if you are in a holiday and planning to go on a holiday, then this nail art is quintessential way to interpret the holiday theme in a playful way and also, a cute way to entertain your holiday this summer. So, let’s see how to achieve this chic nail art in an easy and effective way.

27aug151ed

As you might have guessed, my sincere love to Barry M nail polish is continuing like a very long story and for now, I have picked three marvellous shades including deep pink, turbo charged coral shimmer, citrusy yellow and lastly, the Barry M nail art pen to create this fun full Sunset Palm Beach Nail Candies.

To get the ombre effect sunset background:

  1. Start the procedure with the freshly cleaned and washed nails.
  2. Apply a few drops of coconut oil to moisturise your cuticle.
  3. Then, apply a thin layer of base coat.
  4. Next, apply two coats of Sally Hansen’s white nail polish onto your nails as this helps to enhance the ombre effect layer at the top.
  5. After that, take a sponge and add streaks of pink, coral and yellow lines onto the sponge and dab it straight to your nails as two coats to get a nice pigmentation.
  6. Lastly, take off the excess bits by running a cotton bud that was soaked with nail polish remover along the perimeter of your nails to get a perfect tidied up look.

Note: Leave two minutes of drying each time after application.

Palm Tree Nail Art:

  1. Take the Barry M nail art pen and sketch the palm tree on top of the ombre effect nails by drawing a thin stroke of fine lines by starting from the tip of your nail and running towards the inner part of your nail.
  2. Allow the nail art to dry completely and this step is a must to get a nice smudge-free nail art look.
  3. Finally, apply a thin layer of top coat gently.

I hope you could also try this nail art at your home too.
