Sephora by OPI Leaf him at the Altar Nail Color

The moment I saw this polish, I fell in love with it. Though I don't like a lot of green polishes on my nails, this gives a pretty different look to my nails.

Leaf him at the altar is a very beautiful shimmery metallic green polish with yellow undertones. It has lovely golden-silver shimmer which gives a foil like finish. It's subtle and elegant and seems to fit into any season.



I usually stay away from metallic finishes but this one attracted me. It's a particular shade of green that isn't too bright, nor is it too dull or muted.

Geometric Shapes: Triangles

I use to hate geometry as a kid (I hate to find out angles in between...so boring!) but I love the geometric shapes...

A lot of nail art challenges are going on on various blogs. The challenge I am most attracted to is the one with Geometric shapes. I am new to trying geometric shapes on nails so I thought to give it a try...


Thought these are not perfect triangles but something very similar to them.

Braided Nails

Today I created freehand braids on my nails...

Braided style is a lovely manicure which gives a different look to nails. It looks like a braid on nails..but it's just stripes..



The manicure looks pretty easy but one has to be careful while placing the second and third stripes, as they should come exactly in the middle of the nails.
