Rose mani with tutorial

Hey ya guys
Today I wanna Thank all the people who are giving me awesome suggestions for themes I should try and stuff I can do to improve my blog. I love you all and trust me I consider each suggestion seriously and try to work on it as soon as possible.
My first tutorial post is also based on a close friend's suggestion.

I didn't really mean to make a tutorial of this one but still I just took pictures as I went and so this is just a pictorial of sorts. I promise to make a detailed one next time.

Step 1. I painted the thumb and ring finger in Maxfactor white and the others in Lakmé Color crush 39

Step 2. I made abstract blobs on the thumb and ring finger using the back of a painting brush from OPI Panda-Monium Pink

Step 3. I sharpened a 0 number. painting brush to do the detailing because I felt it was more flexible than the nail art brushes I had.

Step 4. I made the rose like details which are just curved lines beginning from the centre of the blob and going outwards.

Step 5. I made the leaves using Revlon Super Nature

Step 6. I made the highlights on the Rose using the Maxfactor white and on the leaves using OPI Amazon...Amazoff

Step 7. Sealed it all with a Lakmé 9 to 5 top coat.

Hope all that was useful. Let me know if there's any room for improvement.

Fifa themed mani inspired by J Lo

Hey ya
So last week my another cousin requested a FIFA themed mani (wow guys I really really appreciate your feedback and tips) and so I brainstormed but didn't feel like doing the usual football or flags or anything cos the MANIVERSE at the moment is filed with such manis and really good ones belive me and hence I felt I should do something different and yet FIFA and hence this......

A mani inspired by J Lo's attire in the song Ola Ola which is the official FIFA World Cup song.

I completely free handed the design using my 0 number paint brush. The half moon I created by cutting the tape in a half moon shape and then using it as template. The rhinestones are by Konad which I had bought long back from Flipkart.

More suggestions are always welcome let me know if I did justice to the theme or not.
Thanks for stopping by :)

Tree of hearts mani

Hello people....... wassup??? hope you guys doing well.
Today's mani is inspired by my favourite blogger with beautiful hands and amazing talent. She is none other than Leslie from workplaypolish guys seriously you should check out her work I bet you'll love every single one of it.

I had tried this mani some time in feb but it failed drastically but now I felt that my freehand skills had developed considerably to give it another shot and here we are ;) I'm really happy with the way it came out. The White is a new Polish that I bought from Maxfactor it's seriously worth it because it's smooth and non streaky unlike many whites out there. Rest are a plethora of OPIs from my recent hauls from Singapore and Dubai. 
I completely free handed the design using a zero number paint brush which I further sharpened. 
Here's the link to my inspiration feel free to let me know how I fared against her awesome mani.
Thanks for stopping by. See ya

Rejuvenating an old mani

Hey guys my recent post was the orange ombre mani which I told you reminded me of sunset and so I thought of putting my freehand skills at test and try painting palm trees on it, to just try and run the mani for a few more days.
If you missed the old post it's Here. It could have been better I know but still I kinda like it. Not bad considering I used a striping brush to do it.

Galaxy mani

Today I finally finally get to post this mani which was requested by my sweet little cousin who one day wants to become an astronaut and therefore requested if I could make "the galaxy" on my nails.

I was anyways looking for an excuse to do galaxy nails which probably he doesn't know are such a huge thing in MANIVERSE :)

 I used a variety of Polishes for this mani as you can tell but the one that I'm holding is a scattered holo beauty from Inglot.

As usual I do belive there's room for improvement and I'll come up soon with another one.

Just like my cousin if any of you have suggestions for any theme that I should try please let me know in the comments below.

Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it.

Orange gradient mani

Hey ya people
So here's a mani that I did using my latest OPI Polishes. My my although they cost me an arm and a leg (considering I don't spend approximately INR 750 on one Polish :o) they didn't disappoint me AT ALL so smooth in their finish, adequately pigmented, and so so long lasting.

I decided to give gradient mani a try finally *achievement* and tried this look which reminds me of sunset or sunrise whichever you please :) No more rambling straight to the pictures.

I'll update the names of the Polishes soon, please follow and comment if you appreciate my work.
Have a nice day:) and thanks for stopping by.
