Polka Dots with a twist

Back with one more nail art. . . I so so so luved it when I was wearing it. Wasn't so sure of the color combination but it worked. This was inspired by a Nail art tutorial by Polishpedia. ( Click on the link to go to the original tutorial)

The colors were easy to choose (even though I wasnt sure it would work). Two of my most favorite colors.
Maybelline Colorshow Tenacious Teal (Teal but greener) - This is a very very beautiful color not much of a teal tho' and goes opaque in 3 thin layers or 2 thick layers.
Revlon Nail Enamel Raisin Rage (berry shade) - An amazing color and an amazing formula to work with. Just 2 thin layers is enough for opacity.

Teal is a lil thinner formula so I wasn't so sure of how it would be if I apply it over the berry shade using the scotch tape method. So I did a freehand with the berry first on one half of the nail and cleaning the strays on the other half with a q-tip and then applied the teal. The dotting tool was a bobby pin :D. I didnt want an accent nail so I went ahead with the same theme for all my nails.

So what do u think of  it???? Do comment below.

Matte Pink and White Flowers Nail Art

I have a few nail arts to show off to you guys but I got lazy . . . But there's a list of posts coming now with my nail arts but for now this is the one I having on my fingers right now.

This is the first time I've done flowers :D and am so so so happy with how it turned out. This is perfect for a weekend mani. . . Elegant and classy. This is my entry for the nail art comp held by Lisa on her blog.

I wanted a matte base polish, something which would not overpower the nail art. So I decided on a pink polish with matte topcoat. Tools are just my dotting tools :)

Nail Art : Christmas Tree and Presents - Fail

I know I have been off for real long time . . . I again sorta lost inspiration. But then there was this contest on A nail art contest on the the theme Christmas/Newyear. I like to dabble on nail art. But I never thought I'd ever enter a contest but again here I am entering. I have no hope for a win but I luved participating. I have already done 4 manis and planned for my fifth.

My first entry for the Christmas/Newyear Nail Art contest by
Christmas Tree and Presents.
                 Isn't that what everyone remembers when it comes to christmas. But you know what I remember church, relatives, tree, glitz and food. We will have our tree, stars land fairy lights. Every house glitters at night. Then there's the carols. The home to home carols start  by the beginning of december. Then on christmas eve is the truck carols. The churches rent a truck and then decorate the truck/lorry with fairy lights and sing carols. I remember running to the road the moment i hear the Truck/Lorry carols.

The Christmas day starts at 4am with my mom waking me up for church. Then we go to church by 5 am. After the service coffee and cake was served at church and its then we wish everyone "Merry Christmas" and chat with every one around. Every one would be dressed well and shining with jewels. Then we return home for food and more food till lunch. Then after lunch we either visit relatives or go to a beach. We pack tea, snacks and go to a beach. Once in the beach we have our tea, stay for an hr or 2 and then start back home. Thus ends our Christmas day. A very tired end for a very great day. Such fun we used to have.

I have been rambling too much and diverted away from the topic much. So heres the nail art.

Christmas Tree and Presents.

Is it Ok or "It Sucks"? I know its a bit of a failure.
