Hey, guys!
Today I have swatches of Orly new PCH collection to share with you.
Orly PCH Collection Swatches

Orly recent;y released their summer 2016 collection back in may, I am a bit late in posting swatches though. These are fun and bright to bring a pop of color in your summer nails. This collection consists of   6 beautiful colors, few are super bright and others are usually bright. The formula in these are amazing, its application was smooth as well, the polish glides on to your nail when applied.

Let's begin with the swatches!!

Orly Put the Top Down - Its a gorgeous bright pink creme with a peach tone in it. I so loved this color. Shown here is 2 coats plus Orly All in one ultimate top coat.

Pink And Blue Chevron Nail Art

Hey, everyone!
I am back with another cute nail art to share with you! This time, it's not with bright colors instead it's with light colors. I know it sounds so boring when there are no bright colors right! But when your eyes need some rests from all the neon stuff, you do lighter color nail arts , well I guess its just me hehe.

Pink And Blue Chevron Nails


This time, I used 2 colors (Summer Sunnies and Vitamin Sea) from the Serendipity beach please collection whose swatches are already posted a few weeks ago here, basic white, Serendipity Holo daylights from the Christmas collection  and some single chevrons vinyl from Whatsupnails.com .

Pink And Blue Chevron Nails

I started off by applying 2 coats of Summer Sunnies(Light Pink), topped it with a coat of fast drying top coat. Then I applied 3 pieces of single chevron vinyl leaving equal gaps between them, filled Vitamin sea(blue) and white in the gaps like in the picture, removed the vinyl and sealed it with a fast drying top coat.

Bright Summer Aztec Nail Art

Hey, all!
I am seriously getting obsessed with bright colors this summer, is it normal for everyone? or it's just me this season? Well whatever be the case you get to see my colorful Aztec nails which I am so in love with :)


I used various different polishes and products for this nail look. I started with 2 coats of China Glaze White on White on all my nails then I applied Mitti peel off barrier around my nails to protect my skin from all the gradient mess. I used 2 different colors for each nail, for pointer I used China glaze Orange knockout and Absolute Tarte au citron, for middle nail China glaze Heat index and Orly Paradise Cove, for ring finger I used China glaze Celtic sun and Kiwi cool-ada and finally for my pinky I used Kaleidoscope polish no-03 and El Corazon 423/271. I sponged all the colors to their respective nail in a random manner to make a gradient look and applied fast drying top coat.

Once it was all dry, I placed the mountain range vinyl and striping tape where I wanted the gradient base to appear and sponged black over it, removed the vinyl while the polish was wet and sealed it with a fast drying top coat.


Hope you all liked it!

Born Pretty Store - Lip Gloss Swatches & Review

PRESS SAMPLE
Hi, everyone!
I am back here finally after my final semester exams, expect a lot of regular posts from now on!!:)
Today I have a very different blog post to share with you, although it's basically a nail blog, but do expect a few exceptional posts like this one in the future. I thought of changing my blog name as well as names on my other social media, but that might not be a good idea since page names are what makes us who we are and gives us the identity we have in social media. I would still like to know your opinion on if I should continue posting such type of posts in the future or should not? After all, it's you guys for whom I do this:)

Born pretty store lip gloss swatches



OKAY, so I received these 3 lippies from Bornprettystore to give my honest opinion on them after reviewing them. All the swatches are pictured in natural light to get the exact color on the camera. all of them are applied by the brush only. Let's get into the swatches:)

First, one is M N Generation 2 (Number 4) - Its a pink mauve kind of shade and it has a long applicator brush. it is a semi matte finish lip gloss, The application was a bit tricky in this one, it was patchy and I had to go over the patches with the second layer. Overall it's not highly pigmented like the other 2. Link of this p[roduct will be at the bottom of this post.

Next is O Burden moisturising lip gloss (Number 11) - This one is highly pigmented barbie pink, dries into a solid matte finish which is really great. But I don't know why, it made my lips a bit dry, maybe that's how matte lip shades are because it's my first time trying, so I can't really judge here. It didn't suit my skin tone that much but I am pretty sure it will look great on fair skin tones. Its link will be down below.

The last one is By Nanda Lip Lacquer (Number 1) -  A gorgeous blood red matte lip gloss, super highly pigmented, absolutely my favorite out of the three, it suits me very well, removing it can be quite difficult but with my cleansing oil, it came off easily. I just loved it:) Great product for such cheap price.
