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 🙂 But it was so much fun.

Glittering again

Lotus Crimson Red, W7 Gold Dazzle, Barry M Yellow Topaz

I never got time to finish this one. I wanted to do the jelly glitter layering on all nails. And even though all these polishes dry fast I could do only one. It annoyed me much so I removed it in the car itself. Removal wasn’t fun.

Royal Trixie

Trixie is one of my favourite polishes ever. I love it. It has great formula too. If I am in hurry I just do a quick one coat and it covers well, dries fast, looks neat and stunning.


Revlon Royal. Two coats. Its alright. Nothing special.

Sally Hansen Purple pizazz


Sally Hansen Purple Pizazz two coats (?) over a coat of Lotus plum delight

This is a great purple polish. This polish deserves more praise. But I am so tired, its better if I don’t try. 😛

Colorful White

First I wanted white nails. Then I thought about Dandy lyin’ around, so I added white shimmer. Then I wanted to add some color. Ha! So the multi color glitter.


Then I wanted a jelly sandwich so I put a layer of sheer white. And I wanted to see how it looked matte. So there…..


Then I got busy, which was a good thing actually. 😛

Colorbar Crystal Calm & layering

Two coats of my favourite gold-Colorbar Crystal calm. And layering/jelly sandwich on the accent finger. I dont exactly know which polishes I used. There was Inglot Holo topcoat and some other polishes.

This I guess is my Diwali manicure. Today is Diwali,the festival of light, the grandest of all Hindu festivals. A perfectly good reason to overdress and over eat and stress about all the little things. Oh wait! the last one is just me. 😛
Happy Diwali 🙂

Lotus- Playfull Pink

Lotus Playfull Pink. Two coats.

Playfull Pink is a bright glossy pink, with good formula, and reasonable drying time. And its the perfect colour for the grey rainy days.

Lotus Colour Dews are Toulene & DBP free polishes which come for around Rs. 100/- (around $2).  I love these.

Orly Star Spangled

The pictures just give an idea of what this polish is but the true magic happens on the nails. Star Spangled is a deep red jelly with glitter that dances at every given chance. It looks like a red jelly and glitter sandwich. The glitter glows in the jelly but never overtakes it. I am in love with this polish and have had it on my hand almost every other week, which is a rarity.

I hope Stylecraze will get the full size Orly bottles and some more collections. And when and if they do I hope I can find Star Spangled there.
