#31DC2014 Day 29: Spooky Ghost Eyes

Hey beauties, today I did a supernatural themed nail art for the 31 days nail art challenge.
I was confused about what to do for this theme and I wanted to create ghosts for this, but the spooky eyes seemed a lot easier ;)

I really enjoyed doing this manicure, as Halloween is so close this can be easily used for it.

The Lacquer Legion: KitKat Crisp Wafers

Hey everyone, today I did fun chocolate nails for The Lacquer Legion theme "Crisp". 
I thought about creating Potato chips (Lays), then crispy waffles and finally zeroed on to chocolate wafers.This theme surely made me hungry.

What is more crisp than KitKat wafers, right! 
I created the packaging inspired design on my finger nails and the wafer inspired design on my thumb.
Have a look...

#31DC2014 Day 28: Tangled Movie Flag

Hey girls, today I did a flag inspired manicure for the challenge.
It's hard to believe that the nail art challenge is in it's last week. It's like an annual celebration of nail art for every nail art lover.

Now on to today's manicure...I got inspired from the flag of animated movie Tangled, with the big glowing Sun and blurple (bluish-purple) background.

#31DC2014 Day 20 : Water Marbled Leaves

Hey everyone! today I did water marbled nails for the twentieth day of the nail art challenge.

Hey beauties, today I did a decal neon manicure for half moon theme of the nail art challenge. I didn't want to do the basic half moon manicure so I tried the inverted ones :D

Scaled Gradient Nails

Hey everyone, I finally did a SUCCESSFUL curved scaled gradient today and I am on cloud ninth. Trust me, this is scary technique.

It took me one week and three unsuccessful attempts before this... phew!. Every time I did the gradient, I screwed up on the proper gradient distance or gradient or the shape....and the list goes on. Just looking at my nails I can say that there are way more layers than a normal manicure :D But oh well, all those layers made it pretty!

#31DC2014 Day 8: Metallic Quatrefoil Nails

Hey everyone, this is a very late post for today. You can understand the problem once you will see the manicure. I did it twice and still I am not happy with it. The pointer and middle fingernails are ok but the ring and pinky are kind of completely off.

Gradient With Splatter Nails

Hey girls, today I did a manicure with two different techniques "Gradient" and "Splatter" for the techniques challenge. 

This theme was difficult as it really takes effort to mix and match techniques that go together. I tried Saran Wrap with splatter and it was a complete fail. Luckily for me the second attempt with the gradient and splatter worked.

Oriflame Nail Food Review

Hey everyone, today I am sharing my thoughts on Oriflame Nail Food.
When ever I get a chance to try new moisturizing products for my hands/nails I never leave it. Specially my nails and cuticles always needs pampering as I toil them so much with my regular nail arts.

Hey everyone, today I created a mix and match nail art. I picked an image from one of my good old konad image plate for this. This plate has been lying unused in my image plates folder since the MoYou plates entered my stash. I forgot how beautiful images Konad image plates really have and they are the ones which started my nail art craziness.

#31DC2014 Day 3: Sunflower Yellow

Hey everyone, today I created floral nails for the third day of 31 Day nail art challenge. 

I wanted to create Sunflowers for this theme; so I started creating sunflowers from my pointer. But when I reached my pinky, my sunflowers were out of shape and they looked more like some random flowers. And being a lazy person that I am, I left them just like that. I am very happy with my index finger though. So here are my sunflower-y nails...

Fun Tribal With Tutorial

Hey everyone, today I am sharing some fun tribal nails.
