Nail Growth Status..Week 3..and a beginner nail Art- 15

Advertisements

Hey Everyone,

I am back with the weekly status of my nail growth. A bit of growth we can see right?

I am attaching a comparison pic this way it will be easy to see the growth. As nails are still small I am yet to finalize their shape. As of now I shaped them for oval shape. But I may go for the square one.

Additional care nothing as such my Soultree Hand and foot cream got finished so I started using Juicy chemistry one. Initial impression coming soon for that.

As I was very disappointed with last nail art I thought to do a bit of research and after that try. So I came across this image from Pinterest I am mentioning the link below with full credit

You can check the original Nail art by clicking here on Pinterest.

Anyway it’s super easy trust me and if you have nail art brushes it will be even more easy.

What I did..Applied base coat (Maybelline). One coat of white nail polish (Miniso), black stripes from black nail polish (Miniso), yellow nail polish (Faces Canada) and lastly a matte top coat (born pretty). Below are pics. Not very happy with the finishing but still love it. Definitely going to try this when my nail will grow larger.

With lots of

Quick and Easy Nail Art-8

Advertisements

Hey Everyone,

Hope you all are doing well. 10 days back I broke a nail hence has to trim down all nails. Now my nail is back to decent length so I thought to have a quick nail art.

I am a beginner in nail art and hence as of now all my nail art done are of easy and beginner level. You can check them here

Just 2-3 days back I painted my nail with a beautiful Peacock green nail color from Kiko Milano I have reviewed it here. So I thought to step up and do a simple quick nail art on the same. I love polka dots and hence thought to put some polka dots on nail on the upper tip side. I chose orange, white, sky blue and red color. Though the red color was not much opaque but rest 3 were quite good. I used a dotting tool but you can use toothpick or any such thing from which you can make dots.

My suggestion will be never take the color directly from bottle or bristle, on a hard surface (plastic, metal etc) pour some nail polish and then do the design. Also the nail polish from which you are making the dots should not be very thin as the dots will not be in proper shape and not be too thick and dry also.

Below are the pics

Maybelline New York Facestudio Master Strobing Cream

Product Name- Maybelline New York Facestudio Master Strobing Cream in Nude

MRP – Rs 665/-

Almost 3-4 years back when strobing was all over obviously along with highlighter and all. I was so tempted I purchased my first Strobing product. You can read the review here

It took time to understand how to use highlighter/illuminator/ Strobing product and more than that what works best like powder or cream or gel or jelly. But once you get a hold there is no going back.

Maybelline Strobing cream is one of the old buy I got it around 2 years back. I won’t say I have used it enough generally these kind of products you can’t finish a little goes a long way plus if you have so many other same kind of products, it’s sure you will hardly be able to finish.

So recently I was doing declutter came across this one and oh God I have not reviewed this beauty yet. Trust me guys this is one of the best affordable beginner friendly strobing product. I have recommended it to many of my friends and they all loved it.

-A very tiny bit is required for that glow

  • it will be better if you don’t layer it much as layering will lead to concentrated or textured highlighting which looks very fake and bad too
  • you can mix it with your foundation too but do remember use the tiniest amount

  • you can use it as eyeshadow or eyebrow highlighting, collar bones etc too apart from cheek, nose and forhead

  • I will always recommend to use powder on powder and cream on cream, so if you are using cream/liquid strobing product you use it just after foundation or after foundation/liquid blush and seal it with compact

Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick – 08 Sensationally Me

Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick – 08 Sensationally Me

MRP- Rs 349/-

Maybelline has recently launched its Sensational Liquid Matte lipstick range in India. They come in 11 shades, and mostly are nde shades. Some are red and pink. I chose Senationally me which as per Nykaa Site is Nde shade. Well i did checked the swatch and I thought it will be pink based nude. Somehow I was not wrong but not totally right also.

The product comes in a very basic packaging no complain of this due to price factor. Afterall you are getting a good branded product at decent price. When you remove the plastic wrap you can check the name of the lipstick in bottom of bottle and it is printed very small. It took me sometime to know which color it is.

Lets discuss my views pointwise :-

  1. Formula is very drying but if you can survive Sugar liquid matte you can survive this too. But make sure you apply lip balm before applying this lipstick.
  2. Though this is the case with every lipstick but with some its little more hence always make sure your lips are well moisturised and exfoliated else it will look flaky when you apply it.
  3. This color little bit wash me off, though in pics I dont know it looks so cool toned in person its not this much cool toned. But yeah I dont feel the warmness when I apply this color.
  4. This shade will definitely wash out medium to dark skin beauty.
  5. Color is Pink based n*de but its more pink than n*de.
  6. Staying power is good which is common with most of the liquid lipstick. Stays for long and survive small snacks and meals.
  7. Formula is not very comfortable your may feel little stretchy.
  8. It dries quickly and 2 coats are enough to give your full opaque pigmentation.

I loved it but not, my main problem was the shade. Formula wise I am fine because I use lot of Matte Liquid Lipstick so I make sure to moisturise and exfoliate my lips.

Below are the swatches, have you tried this? whats your thought let me know in comments below.

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick – 642 Pop Of Pink

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick – 642 Pop Of Pink

Price- Rs 299/-

Mattes are in trend from quite long now and looking at the so many launches by brand it seems its going to stay for long. I am a matte lover since long, I prefer liquid formulas over bullet. But in recent time I started liking Bullet too. In this my  favourite formula is powder matte.

But Maybelline creamy matte is no doubt super comfortable on lips. If you are someone who dont like drying matte formulas you can always go for creamy mattes.

In mid of this year I got many creamy matte shades and this Pop Of Pink was one of them. My reiew can be summed up as below for this particular shade.

Pros-

  • Extremely comfortable formula
  • color will look beautiful on fair to medium skin tone
  • application is very smooth
  • staying power is 4-5 hours without any proper meal
  • It can be used as blush and it gives good healthy blushed look

 

Cons-

  • Not transfer proof
  • Streaky application
  • washed me out (it can washout mid to dark skintone)
