Indian Lacquer Lovers Nail Challenge (#ILLnailChallnege) Week 1- Polka Dots

Hello guys!!!!
How you all have been??? I have been a bit busy with all office and household chores.  but today I am here with a polka dot mani. This mani I have created under the various nail art challenges by an Indian Nail Art lovers Group the 'Indian Lacquer Lovers'. The group consist of all the lovely ladies of Indian origin from across the world. The group decided to have weekly nail art challenges and the theme for this week was 'Polka Dots'. I was thinking of what colors to choose for the mani and then I thought of merging this challenge with another challenge by 'The Sparkle Queen' called #HePicksMyPolish, in which a guy be it your brother, your boy friend, your hubby, your son, your dad, your neighbor, i mean whoever but it has to be essentially a 'GUY', picks 1-3 polishes of his choice and you have to create a mani using those three colors only. So, i asked my hubby to pick three polishes for me and he PIcked-
1. Street Wear #37- Yellow Delight
2. China Glaze Neon- In the limelight
3. China Glaze Neon- Pink Voltage

These three colors were really very different and the mani I created is-
 The pictures were a bit hazy no matter how hard I tried!!! So I took one picture with flash on.
Without Flash On
With Flash On
 So here is my Simple mani which I created and I hope you all like it. Please do leave you valuable comments...........

My First Ever Blog Award- The Liebster :)

Hello guys!!! I am super duper excited to write this particular blog post today as I have been nominated for my first ever blog award by Jem of  Nail Jems

The basic purpose of the award is to help upcoming and new blogs to get recognition and for that you need to be nominated by some other blogger (like I was nominated by Jems). Once nominated, The rules to be followed are:
  1. You must link back to the blogger who nominated you. 
  2. Answer the 11 questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you. 
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
  4. Go to the blogs you nominated and notify them of your nomination.
  5. Give your nominees 11 questions to answer.
The questions asked to me by Jems and my answers to the questions are as follows-

1. What made you start blogging?
Once I was just browsing the facebook and I saw pictures of beautiful manicures and I was like how do they do it??!!! I then searched videos in the youtube and I discovered that the nail art community is a very big community and has been there for a very long time (I thought that its just a new thing :P) and that there are so many ways in which you can do a nail art. I discovered the use of acrylic paints for nail art (I was like wow!!! you can use acrylic paint for that as well!!!!). I then bought my nail art supplies and started my own journey. Initially the things did not turn out very well but then it was all good . I started my FB page and became member of various nail art groups. I then discovered that people blog about their nail art works (I was surprised here as well, because I thought that blogs are just to write about some random stuff..... I never thought that blogs can be used for this purpose as well). I saw that there are blogs which have a very huge following and have been here for many years, so getting inspiration for those fellow bloggers I thought that I should also write about my passion, my nail arts and so with this thought I started my blogging journey and its so far so good!!! :) 

2. Who?What inspired you to do nail art?
As I have mentioned in my first answer that I discovered that the nail art community is very big so I was inspired by many people, whose videos I saw and admired. I can not name only one person who inspired me.

3. Stuck on an can take one nail polish, one manicure tool, one nail treatment, and one kind of nail art decoration... which?
Ummmm....... I wish I could take my whole box with me because it is just difficult to select just one polish but as I have to name just one so I guess I will take OPI's #NL G18 ( Every month is Oktoberfest) with me which is right now my favourite colour  One manicure tool I will be taking along with me will be my Ranara 180/240 grit nail filer. One treatment which I will be taking along with me will be my base coat coz I don't want to yellow my nails and one nail art decoration which I will be taking along will be my golden nail art foil.

4. Who are your favourite nail artists and why?
 I don't have any particular favourite, the nail art of one's I like, they become my favourite.

5. Which nail art technique do you have most difficulty with?
The answer to that question will definitely definitely be WATER MARBLING!!! I really like that technique and the designs just awwwww... me but when I start doing it I, most of the times, just fail!!! I just get mesmerized by the designs it create and just bow before the people who can get that technique right in just one go. 

6. What other hobbies do you have after nail art?
I just don't get enough time to have enough of this nail art hobby as I have to go to office and then do household chores as well but whenever I get time, I just like to read novels. 

7. Other than nail polish what's the one thing in your life that you can't live without? (thing not person!)
My answer to that would be the game 'Candy Crush Saga', the game is so addictive that you just like to play it always and don't want your lives to end. 

8. What is your dream job?
Wow!!! I would like to do the thing which I like so my dream job is to have my own nail art salon (really).

9. What would your dream house be like?
I don't want a very big house, I want to have a two room set, with a big hall, the balcony should be facing the mountains, or the ocean. I really want to have a big bathroom though, having a nice bathtub in it.

10. What would you advise for someone wanting to start a blog? 
Hmmmm..... First of all, just have positive thoughts before starting a blog, its really tough to compete with the other bloggers having a huge followers but remember they were also at our stage once, so, as the time will pass by, you will also get recognition. To boost up your followers, post about your blog posts in various nail art groups, ask other bloggers to visit your blog and do follow the other bloggers because it really is a give and take kinda thing. Participate in various nail art competition and challenges and do appreciate other bloggers and artist for the work they have done.

Blue Waves

Heya guys!!! How you all have been?? I have been busy with some household chore (dealing with TERMITE INFESTATION!!! and it was so gross..ewwwww....) but I took sometime out and thought of doing water marbling!! Though I suck at it but still can't give up, can I ever (never)!!! So first of all let me show you the design 

 The design was satisfactory and I could get the results not giving much efforts (like I used to in some of my previous marbling experiments still they never turned..... ummm..... anything good :P)

Polishes used are:
For base I used White- Faces Ultime Pro #23 (Snow White)
For marbling I used-
1. Jessica- # 653 (Indigo Glow)
2. Maybelline Colorama- Perla
3. OPI- #NL G18 (Every month is Oktoberfest)
over the marbled design I applied two coats of NYX #37 (Pink Avenue) which is sort of a flaky glitter polish.

Overall the design turned out fine. So tell me what do you feel about the design and leave some comments down.

Hello guys!!! I am here with a new mani. I did this mani in a hurry and I was so uninspired :( so did not came up that nice but anyways here is the picture of the mani.

Products used-
1. Brown polish: Faces #12 (Bronze)
2. Yellow polish: Street Wear #37 (Yello Delight)
3. Green glitter: LA Colors
4. purple glitter: LA colors
5. Acrylic colors: Orange, Yellow, Green, Lavender

After applying a base coat, cover all your nails brown except that of ring finger, which is to be colored with yellow color. Dab green glitter on the tips of brown color and purple glitter on the yellow color. Now apply a clear polish (this is optional, I have a top coat applied to give my nails a smooth finish before going to next step). Using green acrylic color and fine paint brush, draw two wavy lines and some leaves on all the nails. Now using yellow acrylic color draw flower petals with gentle motions over the nails painted with brown polish and use lavender color to draw flowers over the yellow polish. With orange color draw a dot in between the yellow flowers and with yellow color draw dot in between lavender color flowers. Let it dry, apply a  topcoat to seal in your design.

The design is not so unique but do leave me your feedback and comments, I love to read them.
