AIS Sunday challenge: Untried colour combination

Pin It

Hi lovelies,

I decided to take part in the Adventures of Stamping's Sunday challenge this week. The theme was untried/odd colour combination.
Colorbar Bloo My Day and ChG Glistening Snow stamped with MdU Orange using MoYou Pro XL 23 and Bornpretty star studs
I used Colorbar Bloo My Day, a teal blue creme, from its Quick Finish Range as the base for ring and middle fingers. China Glaze Glistening Snow, an awesome silver holographic micro glitter, was the base for my ring finger and pinkie.

I then used Mundo De Unhas Orange to stamp these pretty flowers from MouYou London Pro XL 23 plate. I used neon blue and neon orange (yes, they are orange. My camera freaked out and turned them yellow) from Bornpretty store to jazz up the manicure.
The stars are extremely cute. I got it from the store when they recently had a discount on nail art studs.

#TGPNPC Dirtiest Named Polish: Day 37 of The Neverending Pile Challenge

Pin It
Hi lovelies,

This prompt called for the Dirtiest Named Polish but I don't own any :( The only one 'dirty' enough in my collection was Colorbar Rust Lust. Then, there is Colorbar Flirt.
Colorbar Flirt stamped with Color Club Cosmic Fate
It is quite sad that with a name like Flirt, this pinky peach nude creme is just another granny colour. I had actually chosen this for the granny colour prompt till I realised that I did not have any other polish that sounded naughty, forget dirty :P

I used Color Club Cosmic Fate, a peach holo, to stamp a flower web pattern from XL plate on it. And voila, the nail art proved to be an equal flirt, hiding in the shadows and showing its full glory when the light hit. Just check out the flare in the holo!

My favourite turned out to be the thumb which clearly shows the flower pattern.

Hope you liked it :)

AIS: Yellow base

Pin It
Hi lovelies,

Some of you might know that I am a member of Adventures in Stamping, a stampaholics group on Facebook. They have a challenge for every Sunday, and this week, it was doing nail art on a yellow base.
Since yellow is a colour I do not use regularly, I thought it was a good idea to meet the challenge.
Colorbar Sun Blaze stamped with BM 206 using MdU White

I used Colorbar Sun Blaze, a bright buttery yellow, from the Quick Finish range as my base. As with most yellows, this one was streaky despite all my careful ministrations. But when I added a coat of Wet N Wild Kaleidoscope -- a clear base filled with holo micro glitters, to add some sparkle, the polish levelled out.
And then, I went ahead and smudged by middle finger real bad. So, I layered a coat of Color Club Gingerbread, a gold-based holo glitter to cover up my mistake.

Since it was a stamping challenge, I used the flower buds image from BM 206 and stamped with Mundo De Unas White. This toned down the 'yellowness' of the polish, and made it more wearable for me :)
How did you like this manicure? Don't forget to drop a line.

Indian Independence Day

Pin It
Hi lovelies,

I'll make this short and sweet. This is the manicure I did to celebrate India's 68th Independence Day on Friday, August 15.

The base is Faces White Knight, a silver beige matte polish, on which I stamped with Mundo De Unas Green, Orange and Papyrus (a light cream).

I used two stamps from BundleMonster 406 plate for this design.I used my new neon orange (I know my camera freaked out) and neon green studs from Born Pretty Store to jazz it up a bit.
I also submitted it to Indian Lacquer Lovers on Facebook where nail bloggers have put up their creations to celebrate the Indian Independence Day.

#TGPNPC Gold: Day 36 of The Neverending Pile Challenge

Pin It
Hi lovelies,

For this prompt, I bring you my first MAC polish. And it is very special also because it was a gift from lovely Dhara who blogs at The Happi Therapy.
MAC Sinfully Sweet
This is Sinfully Sweet from the MAC Indulge Collection of Fall 2013. This limited edition polish is described as 'sparkling champagne with gold pearl'. It means the polish is a gold shimer mixed with warm gold flecks. 

MAC Sinfully Sweet

Though gold, the colour is not in your face. And it goes with most of your outfits. I really liked this polish, hope you do too.

#TGPNPC Brown: Day 35 of The Neverending Pile Challenge

Pin It
Hi lovelies,

The next theme for the Neverending Pile Challenge is Brown. I do not have a lot of brown polishes. Probably because I do not think they'll suit my skin colour. But there is this one polish that stole my heart: Femme Fatale's This Fruitcake is Not a Lie.
Femme Fatale's This Fruitcake is Not a Lie layered over Inglot 346
The Fruitcake... is part of FF's Christmas 2013 Trio."A burgundy brown jelly base filled with shimmer brown and caramel along with magenta squares, chocolate hexes, and accents of red and green. Definitely a festive shade, this colour was inspired by the tradional fruitcakes served during the holiday season," states their website.
Femme Fatale's This Fruitcake is Not a Lie layered over Inglot 346
The polish was packed with glitter. I layered it over Inglot 346 (warm dark brown with golden shimmer) as seen on my pointer and pinky. The two polishes seemed made for each other.
Here's a close up of all the lovely glitters in this gorgeous polish. It dries a bit textured as you can see in this picture. Two coats of Seche Vite should take care of the problem.
How many colours can you spot? I haven't had a proper fruitcake but after owning this polish, I definitely want to get my hands on some :)

#TGPNPC Green: Day 34 of The Neverending Pile Challenge

Pin It
Hi lovelies,

Still catching up with the Neverending challenge on my blog, the challenge is GREEN! And I had a tough time choosing from the scores of green polishes I own. Finally, I decided to go with a lemming I managed to fulfil: here's Picture Polish Kryptonite.

Picture Polish Kryptonite indoors
I am no superman, but this polish is a killer! Just look at it. Perfect colour, perfect depth, perfect sparkle. OMG! I just couldn't stop staring at it.
Picture Polish Kryptonite in sunlight
Kryptonite is a blogger collab shade by PP created in 2012 with Australian blogger Cathy aka More Nail Polish (you must check out this blog). This is a dark green scattered holo which dries smooth on the nail. The formula was excellent. This is three coats.

Here's a shaky print of a macro shot so you can see the holo particles. I am so much in love with this polish that the thought of doing nail art just did not enter my head. I do not want to apply it, just admire the bottle (kooky, or what?).
What do you think about this shade? Do leave a comment below.
