Gloss & Matte


My daughter picked these polishes for me. Actually I shut the box after the first three polishes she picked, I dont think she would have stopped at three or four or five. The more the merrier πŸ™‚ But it was so much fun.

Neon pop


What I had in mind was a neutral beige base with the slightest hint of neon here and there. This is lot more than slight, but its okay.


The thumb,I didn’t know what to do with it. It looks funny, I think. πŸ˜€

Oatmeal raisin love!



This is Faces sand coat Oatmeal Raisin. I do not like the name. I love the rest of it. It’s breathtakingly beautiful and unlike any polish I own. I did three coats here. Now, going by Faces Cosmetics history I’d say its their take on OPI’s very famous Alcatraz Rocks. Not that I am complaining. πŸ˜‰


I am mostly pretty meh about polish fads/trends. Like I dont own any shatter or magnetic polishes. But the textured polish trend has all my attention.


This is the first mani I have ever done with striping tape. All courtesy the lovely Kejal. She sent me the tape and my first set of nail art brushes! ! Thank you Kejal! I need to break open the brushes now. πŸ™‚

This one is with topcoat. So if you dont like textured polish its still just as stunning with a topcoat.

And this is a very thin coat of Jessica Gingersnap over Faces Oatmeal raisin. Fascinating!!!

Holo heart!


Its here! My valentines mani! πŸ˜€ Little things-great joy! I did this in a rush (as usual) and it shows. But I still like it. Also it looks atleast ten times better in person than here. I hope I will remember to re-do this mani . I really like the negative space nails, and for the first time in years (seriously!) my nails are not stained, so I dont feel bad showing them. Hurray to that!

New Year’s nails

This is a simple beautiful understated bling on my nails. Its low maintenance, it goes with any and everything and when I get terribly bored, all I need is to look at my nails and see the play of light. Fun!
