Hi lovelies,

It is raining polish happiness in Ahmedabad. I already shared the good news about Inglot entering the Ahmedabad market. When I went to check out their store, I stumbled on another counter. 



 Yes... Faces Canada has opened its store inside Lifestyle at AlphaOne Mall right behind the MaxFactor counter.

If you google, you will find beauty bloggers raving about their eyeliners and polishes. I went looking for the matte polishes, but found none. Considering they opened just 10-15 days ago, I asked the SA to ask if they were going to get matte polishes. I really hope they do. If not, the eyeliners are ripe for the picking.
Yeah.. buying nothing is never an option ;)
I am just glad about these Diwali bonuses. I hope the other brands take a cue and make a grand entry too. Are you listening China Glaze, Essence, OPI, MAC, Kryolan, Chanel... well, you get the idea.

P.S. If the store has presence anywhere else in the city, do tell me, I shall update it here :)

Inglot's in Ahmedabad!!!

Pin It


Hi lovelies,

I bear good news. At least for those who live in good old Amdavad. For those Gujaratis who have been praying and cursing the gods alternately for keeping big brands away from our city, there's hope. For Inglot, a renowned international cosmetic company, is finally in Ahmedabad! YAY!!!!



Yes... it is here. At AlphaOne Mall in Vastrapur. Quite close to me too. Double YAYYY!!!
Okay, it is a large stall and not a store. Not yet :) I can always be hopeful.
Just look at those gorgeous colours!!! 
I own a couple of Inglot nail polishes. They don't have names only numbers. Sigh.
But I love Inglot 517, a gorgeous creamy pink matte which I used here



I also own Inglot 204, a blue flakie.. yes, they have flakies... which I used for this art.



Isn't it gorgeous!! 
I was in a hurry yesterday so just caught one snap of the stall. I am going back today and shall update you on the products available there.
For now, I think this is the only stall in the entire city, but if there are other outlets do let me know in the comment box below :)

For those who don't know, Inglot is a Polish brand that was established over 25 years ago by Wojtek Inglot, a chemist working at that time in R&D department in pharmaceutical company.They launched the world’s first ever Breathable Nail Enamel ensuring better health care for nails whilst enhancing their beauty.
Their unique Freedom System allows customers to experiment with countless shades and colour combinations of different face products, giving them the opportunity to create their own customized colour palette. What more can a beauty addict want?!

31DC2013: Day 14 Flowers

Pin It

Hi lovelies,

Day 14 of the 31 Day Challenge is about Flowers. Since I totally loved the neon I used for stamping for the previous two days, I continued using it for this work.


I totally fell in love with this design. I brought the first Bundlemonster set just for the half-flower design you see on all my fingers. And then, of course, I sat on it till today. 
I also singled out a rose from another Bundlemonster set to tie it up with the base polish.
The base is a beautiful indie polish by Lush Lacquer. It is called Rosies Posies, a white crelly with bar and hex glitters of various sizes in neon green and pink. Goes perfectly with the theme doesn't it?

Colours used:
Base: Lush Lacquer Rosies Posies 

For stamping:
Polish: Colorbar Bloody Mary (neon pinkish red)
Plates: Bundlemonster 04 (half flower), BM 323 (rose)

31DC2013: Day 13 Animal Print

Pin It

Hi lovelies,


Day 13 of Chalkboard Nails' 31 Day Challenge brought in animal prints. I am not much for animal prints, but I loved the combination of colours I ended up with.




I stamped a zebra print using a neon pink red on a clean dove grey background. I also randomly picked out black, white and hot pink glitters in square and rectangle from various polishes because I am hugely lusting after Glam Polish Bricks and Blocks. I wish Australia would lift its ban on international shipping of polishes. I really need that polish in my life, like right now!
Thankfully, you guys will understand my obsession :)
So, don't forget to leave a line on whether this manicure is to your liking.

Colours used:
VoV (unnamed grey) base


For stamping:
Polish: Colorbar Bloody Marry (neon pinkish red)

Plates: Konad M67 (zebra print)
Accent: Random glitters in hot pink, black and white

31DC2013: Day 12 Stripes

Pin It

Hi lovelies,

As you can see from the header, the theme for Day 12 of the 31 Day Challenge was stripes.
This is the manicure I ended up with. Though a little complicated, I liked the design a lot. I'll definitely try this again.


I used a black base and then painted on stripes using white acrylic paint and coloured polishes. I also tried one without the base. My thumb, if you look carefully. I liked both looks.
Hope you liked it, too.

 Colours used:
VoV Blackberry (black creme)

Colorbar Bloody Mary (neon pinkish red)
Zoya Mitzi (matte chartreuse green)
