Keep it Simple...Yellow and Purple

Hey everyone,  finally its Friday...I am excited to try a few new things this weekend. I am going through a yellow phase from last two days. I keep on mixing and matching yellow shades with several other shades, to find out which shades pair well with yellow. As I have a very few yellow shades its not a long process.


Today, I am sharing a simple and quick accent manicure with you, which is a result of my yellow phase :D

Blobbed

Hey Everyone, I know what are you gals thinking...blobbed?? what kind of post title is that? Let me explain. When my extra creative mind kicks in, I create fun manicures :) 

I did a neon manicure yesterday and everyone liked it. All it was little blobs of neon shades on two of my nails. So today, I thought to extend the same idea of manicure.

Faces Nail Lacquer Precious Peach

Hey everyone, this weekend I decided to wear something different from what I usually wear on my nails. I usually don't go for nude or too sheer polishes, they somehow make my skin look too tan and dirty :( I had this polish for more than four months now, so I decided to give this a try.

Jewelled Nails

Hi everyone, it's weekend!!...time to try new things. Today's manicure is a result of my over curious mind. I was continuously searching for an inspiration to use the nail foils since the day I got these. 

When I saw a foil manicure on Lucy's blog I knew I had to try it, so what's better than a weekend. In today's manicure I have used the foils in a different manner.

MAC Archie's Girls Daddy's Little Girl Lipstick

Daddy’s little girl is a part of MAC Archie’s Girls Collection.This lipstick is a part of Veronica’s shades. The name is so apt for Veronica.


On the website, the shade is described as a mid-tone pink violet with satin finish. This looks more pink in the tube but on my lips the shade comes out to be purple-pink. So I will say that it is a bright blue toned pink [The blue undertones make the teeth look whiter  :D  ]

Gradient Nails: Purple and Pink

Hi Everyone :) It's Friday, and I have a very special birthday party to attend this weekend. I was searching Pinterest for some inspiration and came across a lot of gradient manicures. So I decided to do gradient nails today. As Pink and purple are my all time favorites, I used these two shades for the manicure.
