Festive Gold and Fuchsia Nails

January 28, 2017 Setu 2 Comments

Hi Girls, How are you all? I am good. December just went by and still no pinch of cold. Nonetheless, I am sharing a warm Gold holographic polish swatch from BornPretty Store. I usually long for these bright ad gleamy colors during colder weather. But cold or no cold I am enjoying this.

BPS Heart Of Gold Swatch

I got this polish from Bornpretty for review. Now I have used their earlier versions of Holographics and have known they are decent. But this range of holographics is simply 'Killer'.

BPS Heart Of Gold Swatch

This is a classic gold holographic polish called 'Heart of Gold' and its the best one could name it. It is a strong linear holographic polish. The effect is comparable to ColorClub Halographics. You can literally see the rainbow on your nails. You can buy them here and get 10% off with code HQBQ10.

Coming to the packaging. I so love it. It is exquisite, oozing luxury. If you read my review of BPS Holo polish from 2 year back, I have complained about packaging and bottle. They heard it and it is impeccable this time. The bottle has a rectangular cap which holds a another circular cap with brush. Its very difficult to hold wide brush holder and paint with precison, so they sorted it this time. Ohh! and the brush itself is a wide one and not traditional circular. I love flat wide brush, they just hold enough polish and provide more coverage. And less streaks ofcourse.

Festive Gold and Fuschia Nails

With such a gorgeous polish I was wondering what nail art to do. I decided to pair it with fuschia which is favrouite combination with gold.

I stamped with Harunouta L025 using Fushcia stamping polish from BPS itself. Woah, too much of BPS in this post. You can buy the stamping plate here and stamping polish here. And my discount code is already mentioned above.

Over the stamped nails, I did some glitter placement with blue and green hexes. I am happy with the nail art overall. Its so indian and festive too. It charmed me with its richness and beauty. What do you think ?

Peach and Gold Nails

January 24, 2017 Setu 0 Comments

Hi Girls, I have a simple nail art to share today. I wanted to try the combination of matte bright peach and gold. I had something prettier in my mind which obviously has not translated on nails completely.

Peach and Gold Nails

The hot peach polish is Orly Freeflow. Its is such a warm yet bright peach polish. It makes me swoon everytime I open the bottle. It is flattering for all skin tones.

Peach and Gold Nails

I used Moyou Asia 07 and MDU Gold for stamping and then did a coat of Inglot Matte Top Coat.



On my accent I am wearing KB Shimmer Diamond. Yes, I mentioned in one of previous posts on how I lost it and again re-ordered it out of love. It is stunner, what say?

Black Floral Nails inspired by Wondrously Polished

January 21, 2017 Setu 0 Comments

Hi Fellas, how are you? I am good. I am good whenever I do things that make my heart sing, bestow peace to my mind and provide feeling that I can create something pretty. So, no marks for guessing how much a Freehand Floral nail art makes me feel 'good'.

The nail art I am sharing with you today is not out of the world, considering the amount of detailing I have done before on florals. But this one, I just liked it for its randomness and wilderness. Not everything needs beautification and detailing.

I came across this nail art done by Lindsey from Wondrously Polished which was inspired by Washi Tape. Ohh, I was stumbed. I took a screenshot of it thinking to re-create it. And finally I guess after months, I did so.

The base is Sinful Colors Black. All the freehand is with Acrylic Paints and my favourite brushes from BornPretty Store. You can buy the brushes I used from here and here. Also don't forget to use my coupon code HQBQ10 to get 10% off.

I applied Inglot Matte Top Coat over the finished mani. Did I tell you it's the best top coat I have used? Oh, yes I did say this in my previous post. Also did I tell you I loved this mani a lot and wore it for 4 days straight.

Simple Nail Art on KB Shimmer Tiers of Joy

January 18, 2017 Setu 2 Comments

Hi Girls, I recently hauled from Color4nails on black friday and although I got 10 polishes.Though now I am thinking why didn't I take any more?lol.  I lost one slot out of those 10 polishes to KB Shimmer Diamond which mysteriously disappeared from my house from my last order. It was too beautiful to forget. coming back to swatching one of the polishes KB Shimmer Tiers of Joy from the same haul.

KB Shimmer Tiers of Joy Swatch

This was a part of  KBS Fall 2016 collection. It is a delightful cream based nail polish loaded with goodness of  gold holographic glitters, pink glitters, as well as micro holographic glitter.

KB Shimmer Tiers of Joy Swatch

It is a lovely office wear polish with some real sparkles added to it. I applied 2 coats to attain complete opacity. I will say this is a classy blend of soft creme and some bling which will suit any complexion.

I may have not done complete justice to the polish and ended up with a simple nail art. But I had been waiting to try out this color combination for long.

I wanted to do an equally soft and soothing nail art so I went for sober mustard brown for pair. The polish is from chambor which never has a name only a number.The stamping polish is MDU Cream and plate is UberChic set 03-03. Just to give the fuzzy flowers a centre, I added a gold hex.

Antique Filigree on Picture Polish Ornate

January 14, 2017 Setu 0 Comments

Hello Girls, I am swatching Picture Polish Ornate today along with a nail art that is no less classy the Ornate itself. It is a collaboration shade with 'A Lacquered Affair'. It is a warm mute plum crelly with lots of gold, bronze hexes and glitters. It also has magenta hexes which makes this polish even more adorable.



[caption id="attachment_7641" align="alignnone" width="2079"]swatch-of-picture-polish-ornate-in-artficial-light In Artficial Light[/caption]
The formula is classic PP, two coats and a top coat. It exudes richness and royalty both in the bottle and on the nails. It looks different when viewed in different light. When I clicked in articial light it looked darker dusty muted plum, maybe a little taupe too.



[caption id="attachment_7642" align="alignnone" width="1666"]swatch-of-picture-polish-ornate In Sunlight[/caption]
But when I clicked the next day in sunlight, the color like blossomed to a much lively plum purple. It looked amazing both ways. So how and where you click, will determine what you see.

Having said how royal yet classy the polish is, I had to think of a nail art with no less status. Initially I thought stamping with Gold, which will be best and bright. But it's a no brainer right?

When I closely looked at my nails they looked like an antique peice of beauty. So I picked up a lovely filigree image from BPL016 , which is my most used stamping plate. I don't know how many times I keep coming back to it. You can buy it here and enjoy a 10% off with code HQBQ10.

I wanted the mani to look a royal antique beauty. For stamping I used MDU Caramel, it just looked as soft and rich. The nails looked exactly how I wanted, a peice of beauty and class. What do you say?

Rose Love Letter Nails

January 07, 2017 Setu 1 Comments

There are some nailarts which we have seen in different variations over a period of time. But they don't loose their sheen or charm because they are classics. One of such is todays nail art. I know we may have seen many manis on similar lines but each one still makes us swoon. The Love Letter Nails with classic roses.

Rose Love Letter Nails

I wanted soft colors and warm feeling for my love letter nails. So I went in with one of favourite pastel base, Essie Blossom Dandy. Its a lovely soft light mint blue colored creme polish. It is an extremly pleasant and happy color.

Rose Love Letter Nails

I stamped the letters using MDU Caramel instead of black because I was looking for soft transition of colors rathet than bold contrasts.For quite some time I browsed stamping sets after sets looking for cute small flowers which I could turn to decals . But after wasting time in the futile search, I realised I can draw decent flowers quite effortlesly. And may be more real looking than decals.

Rose Love Letter Nails

So I dumped the stamping decal idea and made freehand flowers with acrylic paints. I used Bornpretty Store stamping plate like usual. You can them here  & here and get 10% off with code HQBQ10

Nails Inspired by WingBack Chair Print

January 04, 2017 Setu 0 Comments

Hi Girls, How are you? I am excited sharing this nail art with you. There are two types of nail art that make my heart skip beat. First being Freehand (esp Florals) and the Second being Inspired Nails. I love doing them so much. It gives me a sense of achievement and victory once I am able to pin down my imagination on my nails.

Nails Inspired by WingBack Chair

I was just browsing Instagram the other day and came across a sponsored post by a Limonstory about 'WingBack Chair' Saree Edition. I fell in love with the vibrant print. I immedeatly took a screenshot and the rest is history.

Just when you look at the vintage type damask prints and feel vintag-y ; the bright yellow and pink pull it back to look contemprary modern. I was head over heels over this brilliant mix. Elegance with bright colors, wow.

I made this nailart in breaks because with my current condition of back pain, I can barely paint my nails in one go. I don't remember how many breaks I took for this but I guess I finished them on second day.

The base is Color Club Look Dont Tusk over which I stamped a beautiful image from Moyou London Asia 11. I colorblocked the base with Orly Beach Cruiser and NYX Banana. To make these look even rich yet classy, I did glitter placement across colored borders. I know the glitter placement takes a lot of effort and time. But they always end up beautifully making everything worth.

After finishing, I top coated my nails with Inglot Matte Top Coat. Its one of the best Matte Coat I have used in years. I am throughly pleased with the nailart, the subtle print with punch of colors and glitter placement ofcourse. What do you think, is it fair to fall in love with oneselves work once in a while?
