Faces Ultimate Pro long Wear Matte Lipstick in Cinnamon

After a long time (four months to be precise!) I am reviewing a product which is not nail paint!

Faces Canada Launched its Ultimate Pro range recently. I never tried a lipstick from Faces, so I was excited to try this shade as soon as I got my hands on it.

Cinnamon is a beautiful matte brown shade. I usually do not wear brown shades on my lips, but the shade is good for a change.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer Light As Air

China Glaze is one of my all time favorite International brands. I love the formulation of their polishes. Light As Air is an example, that even the best of the brand can sometime go wrong with the polish formula.

Colorbar Pro Nail Lacquer Blue Web

I don't own a lot of dark polishes but the ones I have, are for stamping and watermarbling. I feel that somehow the dark blue polishes make my hands look dark and dirty :( 

Colorbar Pro Nail Lacquers have beautiful colors and rich formula. I prefer these colors over the regular ones as they are mostly one-two coaters. Thus it is easy to achieve the perfect manicured nails.

Blue Web is a rich blue creme with blue micro shimmer in it. This polish looks beautiful on nails at night.

Triangles in Triangles??

I am good at making flower and petals on paper but when it come to nails it is even tough to make small triangles. At such places, nail art tape comes to rescue. You apply it in a pattern, apply the nail polish, peel the tape and you are good to go with a beautiful pattern on your nails.

Continuing with the Chevron - geometric shape nail art posts, today I have another simple tape manicure. 

This nail art is super easy to create and I love the combination of green with turquoise.

Mix of colors

Today, I created a multi-colored skittlette for my small nails.

I wanted to pair the teal and the plum together, so I included both along with a pastel lilac for this manicure.

Checkered Nails

With my little nubbies I am in search for easy manicures. Today's manicure is the simplest one. Checkered nails are easy to create and they look beautiful. 

Red and gold polishes always look good together. They created a perfect contrast on the nails.

A Cup of Inspiration

I enjoyed long nails for a few months and then decided to trim them down again. With small nails it is really difficult to decide about manicures.

So, I took the inspiration from my coffee cup :) and decided to do easy striped nails. This is my second ever manicure which is inspired by a particular pattern.

My Birthday Nails

On this Birthday, I had a few ideas for manicure. I narrowed them down to this Purple skittlette. This Birthday was special to me, as I celebrated it with my parents after 3 years.

Zoya Nail Lacquer Shawn

It's summer time! I love to wear neons and greens on my nails. 

Yesterday I thought of wearing Shawn on my nails. This polish came out with Zoya's Fall 2010 collection. I was waiting from a long time to get my hands on this pretty green polish. As soon as the website restocked it, I bought it (guilty pleasure!).

On the Zoya Website the color is described as "a warm, mossy yellow-toned medium green creme". I would describe it as olive moss green, nearly army green.
