Nail Polish Of The Month


This green! 😍

It's called 'Honeydew Melon', if I Google searched correctly. 
Now I'm wishing for a velour tracksuit set in this exact colour. I might have to call H&M.
*M A N I F E S T I N G*


W For Woman, the Indian wear brand, have launched their own nail polish & cosmetics line in select stores. I picked up these 2 nail polishes for Diwali.

Green is named, Breeze
Silver glitter is named, Dazzle

Their nail polish manufacturer is the same as Colorbar's, btw. I'd say the quality is almost the same too.


Price: ₹199

If It Isn't Pastel, I Don't Want It.....


For my nails, it's either only pastels, sometimes black, or frequently french.

My toenails are done in 5 different pastel shades, most of the time. 

Here are 5 new shades I picked up recently. 
I kinda had to go out & buy them, because most of my favourite nail paints have started 
drying up & bubbling.

All from Colorbar again, of course.

*My ring fingernail broke some time back, btw.

10 Favourite Things.....


Got this flat lay to a C- (satisfactory minus) after 45 clicks & just when the camera battery was running out, by the way.

If you see what's bothering me about the arrangement now that I'm viewing it on a bigger screen, then you've also concluded that it's a murder, not a suicide. Wait, don't ask me to elaborate on that yet. I'm doing my own CBI investigation based on the countless & rather contradicting "Breaking News" on my Instagram explore.


I suddenly came up with this post, even though I have a number of long overdue ones in my drafts:

My 10 Favourite Things right now.....

38 Years Old, A Romance Novel Life & Unending Shopping Addiction


Life's been more exciting than any vacation I've ever been on. 
Not necessarily good or perfect, and I fall down a lot, but when I'm up & my antennas aren't disrupted (and I dress up a bit), it's something else.

Hot & intense, unpredictable & 'Romance Novel-esque' ;)
(This is gonna prick some people..... *ahem*)

It's true what they say, life really does begin in your late 30's, because that's when you know, without a shadow of a doubt, who you really are & who/what you WANT.

These days, my soul screams for the things it craves at 3:55 am

Either that, or Ziizayne has kicked me in his sleep again.


As some of you know, my birthday happened too soon again, and I am officially 38 years old now.
  I know I'm 3 weeks late with my mandatory birthday post & it's been sitting idly in my drafts since.

So, for all of you waiting to see a Birthday Haul....

Aside from my entire outfit here, I collected some things before my birthday:

Colorbar 1001 Nail Polishes ~ HAUL


Colorbar launched 1001 new nail polishes recently & I'm going C-R-A-Z-Y! 
I'm having trouble picking shades, even though the New U stores I went to didn't stock all 1001 shades. 

With Keratin & Almond Oil, and the formula is paraben-free. 

I picked up 2 shades one time, then I went back to get more...but then I didn't have enough time to pick carefully. So I managed to pick only 3 more. 


Sister's Secret #607 - Lilac
Pretty Face #822 ~ Rose pink
Lemonade # 1080 ~ Lemon yellow
Invisible #835 ~ Cool Nude
Salt & Pepper #1302 Arteffects ~ Baby blue with navy flecks



I'd already worn Sister's Secret and Salt & Pepper, and they're both great! The consistency is just right, nice brush, streak-free application & they don't chip easily either.

I wanna be in a room with ALL 1001 shades, and pick 20 more! =D



Price: Rs.199 
(THANK YOU, Colorbar! For keeping it under 200 bucks.)

Revlon Zinnia


When I was in school, I found on the last page of my Dictionary what I thought was the most beautiful word ~ “Zinnia”
It’s a type of flower, I learnt. 
I’d always go back to look at the word, as if I was afraid it wasn’t real & disappear, or something! Zinnia.... Zinnia.... Zinnia.... Zinnia-na

ZiNNiANA (pronounced: Zinni-yah-nah) was gonna be the name of my future daughter, I decided. 

Just a backstory of how I named the daughter I never had.

Trying this thing where I write short & quick caption-like posts just like on my Instagram, before I have to do something else... and then nothing! - for everyone asking me to blog regularly here again.


HAPPY DECEMBER, everyone! =)

Gothic Glam Manicure


Nice Girl: "Wow, I love your nails! Where'd you get them done?"

Me: "Really?! I did them myself."

Nice Girl: "Cool! I could never do nail art on my own nails."

Me: "Me neither! This is not really nail art. It's just glitter."

Nice Girl: "Really?! It looks like crystals have been carefully placed, 
and the black tips look like leather!"


******

That convo made me look at my Lazy Girl Manicure differently, give it a name & a blog post.....

1st Untold Story & The Last Adored,,,,,,


"

Her: I'm leaving. Bye, have a nice life.

Him: Why would you do that? If that's what you want, I won't stop you. You looney!

Her: Ya, that's what I want! You're a horrible, horrible person!

Him: Why are you doing this?

Her: Because I can. Now just say 'Bye' to me.

Him: Hahaha....no I won't! I won't say it!

Her: Fine! If that's how you want it. 

Him: Over my dead body. Make me say it!

Her: Argh! Don't say it then!

Him: Why should I say it? You say it, since you're the one running. 

Her: I said it already! It's your turn now. 

Him: I will not say it. Can you stop doing this?

Her: Okay. Fine. I'll just leave then.

Him: ...............

Her: ................

Him: Come with me to Jaipur. I'm driving there tomorrow. You should come. But obviously you won't.

Her: I can't. Maybe some other time.

Him: Yeah, right. Just the way I'll ever get to know your name.

I hope your 2017 will fulfill all the wishes that 2016 couldn't, or wasn't kind enough to even try.

I know, for some of us, 2016 was flaky af.....sometimes dangling a cookie we don't even want until we thought, 'Okay, why not?!'
..... and then finding out you can't eat the damn cookie - because it's made of stone!

You say bad analogy, I say 2016 hangover.

Talk again soon! :* :*

Nails That Last....


Don't you just hate it when your nail polish starts to chip off only at the tips after, like, a day? For me, it happens more often, because I use that stainless steel scrubber to wash some dishes & the kitchen sink - so that means my right hand nails go first, pfft!

Applying hard-to-remove glitter nail polish at the tips has solved that problem....

Makeup Haul ~ New Launches + Drawer Organizers


I always get weird looks from the counter people at Lifestyle when I'm buying makeup. I don't know why. Maybe I appear too eager, maybe I walk from counter to counter a bit too crazily - sometimes back & forth to "compare", maybe I look too flustered, maybe I take too long to decide which shade I want, maybe I move to another counter while they are bent over those bottom cabinets looking for a product I asked for (they come back up & hey, where'd she go?!) maybe I ask "New launch? New Launch?" like a vendor in a train - "Bhel puri? Bhel puri?" 

Okay, okay, I'll control myself next time. Before I set foot in the beauty floor, I'll coach myself first:
 "Be cool. Breathe. Neutral facial expression. Walk graciously. Duchess Of Cambridge....."


First counter - Maybelline!

The Magnum Barbie Mascara ~ This is similar to The Falsies Mascar, but with a slightly more slender brush & the formula is more packed with fibres. First Impression: Could clump & smudge easily, but if you can handle that like a meticulous woman, false lash kind of volume & length!
Price: Rs.399

Color Sensational 3D Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Quartz Pink ~ A little palette of 5 eyeshadows, in which there is a top coat shimmer eyeshadow. Available in 4 shades. 
Price: Rs.575

Color Show Big Apple Reds Nail Paints ~ A collection of 4 red shades. I picked up R2 Big Apple Red. 
Price: Rs.145

Fit Me Concealer in #20 Sand ~ This is a repurchase. I'd got the first one in the same shade from UK, and they are both the same.
Price: Rs.500

Color Show 3D Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Quartz Pink

Nail Polish Of The Week


Tell me, have you ever taken the time to correct a sales person's pronunciation?

Not Bow-doy. It's Boo-dwah.

Not Bow-joice. It's Boorj-wah 
(Bourjois - Every.time!)

No? Me neither! I think it's quite offensive when it's not a friend, family or anyone you know closely. Don't you think? 


This nail polish! <3 p="">

Pink with a mauve undertone. Perfect for everyday. 2 coats. Applies smoothly, dries quickly.

New Year Haul & Life Update


Hi, Everyone! Happy happy New Year to each and everyone of you! Hugs & kisses xx <3 p="">
So late, I know, but I was rarely home these last few weeks. My brother and his family were staying over, and we were always out and about.

 I am so very happy 2015 is gone, because it was the worst year of my life. I went through some things that weren't good for me, and I had somehow lost myself. Okay, enough of that. Closed book.
This year feels different already. Another chance to start over, and live the life I want to live.
But it started off with a weird, life-threatening, surreal incident.....
