I totally agree that resolutions are not only restricted to just personal life alone but also, it has to extend its hands onto beauty side too as these foremost principles could unmatchably able to bring a new transformation to the real definition of beauty. Besides, new year always reflects a new beginning and that’s why, this time I am planning to experiment with some of the beauty rules that are beyond my comfort zone as I want to know how much I could able to stretch myself to keep up with new beauty rules. So, let’s see what’s in store for?

Beauty Resolutions:

  1. Contouring and Strobing made centre stage in beauty throughout 2015 and I can’t see anywhere it is going to fade this year too. Besides, I would be over to moon if I master those tips and tricks of those techniques. Anyway, who doesn’t like to sculpt their face as a pro like Kim Kardashian.
  2. There is no excuse when it comes to removing makeup even if you are tired or exhausted and so, I made up my mind to follow the rules of removing makeup everyday without any fail.
  3. Haircare is one of those essential beauty routine that I need to concentrate even more and hence, I’m planning to try no-iron hair days in equal interval of time as this rule could make my hair to breathe for sometime. So, the other best option to go for is naturally curly wavy hair look.
  4. Well, I am not one of those person who can instantly splash a flashy coloured shade onto the lips and that’s why, this year I want to try bold and beautiful lip shades which is definitely away from my comfort level.
  5. Next, I always tend to opt for No-Makeup makeup days here and there and to give it a more zing, this year I would like to add up some natural lip balm onto my lips which is none-other-than, honey which could ideally bring a break to lip gloss and lipstick onto my lips.
  6. Nowadays, with so much damage from UV rays and high pollution, having a SPF factor in skincare and body care is an absolute wardrobe essential and to roll up even higher, this time I want to amp it up as daily care that includes all kinds of weather conditions like rain, sun and winter chill cold.
  7. If you are a beauty lover just like me, then nail care is a must-do regime and applying cuticle oil regularly could bring a healthy balanced to your nails. Also, coconut oil is one of those naturally sourced nail food that one should try for.
  8. Pamper sessions can able to bring a stress-free life and hence, make it as a practice to do frequent hair masks so that it could keep your hair silky soft as always.
  9. Practising DIY face masks every now and then is a well kept beauty secret for a bright glowing skin and hence, make some effort to do it regularly.
  10. Not all are blessed with a natural glowing skin and hence, keeping your body hydrated is absolutely mandatory as it can keep your skin glowing and healthy just like the baby soft skin. So, drink plenty of water every day.
  11. Besides, while moving onto healthy aspects of life, getting a good amount of sleep is very important to body as well as to skin and hence, try to sleep atleast 6-8 hours regularly.
  12. Lastly, fitness gives a major contribution to beauty side and hence, make it as a habit to do fitness 3 times a week which in return could bring a radiantly glowing skin that we all love.

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.

Or, you could also have a sneak peek onto some of my nail art gallery which is right in here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Barbie pink nail candies with green strawberry dots.

7jul151

Pink nails are so popular and it is raving with huge demand for this season and hence, with all that in mind, I just went to explore on a journey to get deep into the roots that could make me way to reach the destination of Barbie pink nail candies; plus, as a girl, we all are well-known of Barbie right from the early childhood play days and also, no one could able to erase those wonderful memories that too even when you get older and that’s why, having that as an inspiration, I started to recreate my new version of nail art which could combine all the flavours of summer including colour, theme and essence. Hence, with no wasting of time, eureka! I got an idea and that’s where I landed onto “Barbie pink nail candies with green strawberry dots”. This nail art design is so effortlessly easy to do and follow and so, let’s get started.

7jul152

Choice of summer hues:

As sun is hitting harder with silver mercury levels rising, there is no shortage of ravishing colours from mother nature and hence to stick onto colour and also to reflect the theme, I opted for pink and green, where the first hue is dedicated especially for Barbie, which is a universal defined colour and the latter one is purely for the strawberry shape and the luscious green grass that is spread all across the field like a green bed throughout summer.

7jul153

Products and Tools:

  • Revlon multi care base+top coat
  • Barry M sugar-plum No. 513 nail paint
  • Lakme colour crush green
  • Barry M No.429 matte nail paint
  • Boots cotton pads
  • Boots cotton buds
  • Cutex nail polish remover
  • Coconut oil

How to do this nail art?

  1. Start the nail art with freshly prepared clean nails.
  2. Then, apply a thin layer of Revlon multi care base+top coat onto your nails.
  3. Now, apply two layers of Barry M sugar-plum nail paint onto the first four fingers and thus, leaving the pinky finger not painted.
  4. After that, apply two coats of Lakme colour crush green onto pinky finger.
  5. Then, using doting tool from your nail art kit (tip: you could also use small kebab sticks instead), take the green nail polish and make some strawberry dots onto the ring finger which could be faultlessly achieved by making three adjacent dots that are connected to each other – yes, you heard it right as it is that super easy nail art to do.
  6. Now, apply a thin coat of Barry M matte nail polish on top of each nail.
  7. Not to forget, always leave drying time of two minutes after each application of nail polish.
  8. Then, take off any excess nail polish onto the sides of the nail using Boots cotton buds that are already soaked up with Cutex nail polish remover.
  9. Take few drops of coconut oil and apply onto your fingers as a nail food.
  10. Finally, take off any excess oil with Boots cotton pads.

Yes, the nail art is done and seriously, the matte finished pink nails look exactly like a mirror reflection of Barbie pink dolls.

Wimbledon Tennis season has already started and I think, this nail art could literally match with any kind of summer dress which could also makes you to appear as so girly and posh and hence, if you are a spectator in the Wimbledon match, then don’t forget to catch up with this routine and there is no doubt that you would be getting plenty of compliments for your flawless manicure too.

My luxe obsession of colourful confetti nail candies.

6jul151

When it comes to summer, it’s all about the ravishing colours which are sprinkled everywhere that covers the entire season. Plus, you must have known the fact about the two famous companies who recently celebrated their own label of cosmetic range in a modern way and they are none-other-than, Chanel and Topshop. First, when you look on to Chanel, the high-end market competitor who started selling its brand new “It nail polish collections” fives years back who also made all the luxe-loving people to reach an uncontrollable level of excitement for nail polish shades whereas, the other company to be noted for is the high-street champion, Topshop, who also made a successful debut makeup collection five years before and also their products were reasonably priced and kept much affordable in a way that you don’t need to watch for the price tag that you buy. So, by compiling the above two facts altogether, it is well enough to know that both companies worked harder in a unique way to conquer millions of customers as their product buyers and hence, with all at back of my mind, today I am going to show you my celebration-mode confetti nail candies that can suit for any festive occasions to come in the mere future. So, let’s get started.

6jul152

Nail art:

I am a great fan of nail art and when you think about nail art, there are so many intricate designs and patterns that you need to be taken care of and also, it is a time-consuming process as well and hence, if time is the issue for you then it is a definite no-no although it is such a pleasure to garnish your claws with fabulous display of drawings onto your tender loving nails. On the other hand, painting your nails with just a hint of monotone hue might seemed to look like a boring situation sometimes and that’s the reason, this time I opted for a much interesting eye-catching pattern that is fancy and also not a rocket science that is difficult to handle for.

6jul153

Why did I choose confetti nails?

  • The first thing is that the design that you could achieve is as easy as even a five-year old can do it as it is not like a flower design that you need to do it on your nails in the nail salon which would cost more than what you expected.
  • The pattern is confetti themed and hence it is shiny albeit it is not as shimmery as a seven-year-old’s boxed glittery nail polish that comes along with the kid’s magazine as a gift.
  • It has a hint of sparkle yet looks completely elegant and stylish that could effortlessly ticks all the boxes of festive moods.
  • Another reason is that confetti nails are very well adorned by celebrities and street stylers and hence, if they can then anyone can do it too.
  • It sounds great on its own as it is so versatile to slather and smear it on your nails on a lazy summer afternoons as you don’t need to go for a ton of tools, nail kit and accessories to complete your nails.
  • Last but not least, this theme is hue-filled in all ways that triggers the whole point of playful and plentiful.

6jul154

Where to wear?

  1. As I said earlier, confetti nails are ideal for parties as it gleams with glee and it can faultlessly carry along well with the matching sparkling costume.
  2. These nails fit for any kind of festivity.
  3. It is absolutely great as a weekender as these nail candies literally goes well with denim shorts, white T-shirt and tanned sandals on a hot summery beach day.
  4. These nail candies supplement a hint of glam effect that could set you all in a quintessential holiday mode.
  5. You can also flawlessly show off your foil-toned glistening nails to your friends on your next catchup day.

Products that I used:

  • Cutex acetone free nail polish remover
  • Boots cotton pads
  • Coconut oil
  • Moisturiser
  • Boots cotton buds
  • Boots essentials – base coat
  • Rimmel London – 080 black cab
  • Barry M Aquarium collection – 428 mermaid
  • Boots essentials – top coat

How to create colourful confetti nails?

  1. Take the nail polish remover generously onto the cotton pad and wipe out all the old nail polish that are already clang onto your nails.
  2. Then, wash your hands nicely with the running tap water to clear off the dirt completely.
  3. Now, grab a few drops of coconut oil onto your fingers and massage it nicely all over the nails.
  4. After that, wear along some moisturiser on to your nails and leave it to soak for two minutes.
  5. Then, apply base coat onto your nails first.
  6. Now, apply two coats of Rimmel London’s black cab onto your nails.
  7. Then, apply a thin layer of Barry M mermaid onto your nails.
  8. Lastly, apply the top coat onto your nails.
  9. Don’t forget to dry your nails for two minutes each time after nail polish application.
  10. Finally, take off the excess bits on all the sides using cotton buds that are previously soaked up with nail polish remover.

Hurray! Now, your nails are ready to show off.
