Maybelline Color Show Nail Color Remover | Review

Who on earth needs a review for a nail polish remover, right? Well, I am writing one anyway because you need to know about this particular nail color remover if you haven’t already. If you hate the scent of most nail polish removers and are too impatient to spend more than a couple of minutes on removing your nail paint then you must read on!

The Maybelline Color Show Nail Color Remover does smell like a regular nail polish remover in the bottle, but once you use it on your nails, it actually leaves behind a pleasant scent. Also, this product is able to remove the more stubborn formulas with significant ease. I am talking about the gel finish nail paints and those with chunky glitter in them. Also, you need just a dab of the product for both the hands, which means that the bottle lasts for quite some time.

The formula also claims to contain Vitamin E which is supposed to be really good for the nails. Personally, I have noticed that my nails stain less since I have switched to this nail paint remover. I am talking about the yellowing that happens on the nails when you don’t leave them bare for adequate time in between manicures (I plead guilty).

The efficacy of this nail polish remover justifies the price point of INR 90 for a 30ml bottle. If you are in the market for a new nail paint remover then I recommend trying this one. I am sure you won’t be disappointed!

Fall Nails Are Here!

Is it just me or does every girl feel a little more bad ass with a dark and vampy nail color on her talons? My favorite dark shade is oxblood and since fall is here, I can finally flaunt it without people thinking I am a little crazy. On my nails today is the shade Plumtastic from the Colorbar Quick Finish Nail Lacquer Range. This nail paint is richly pigmented and dries very quickly too but unfortunately, the brand seems to have discontinued the range because it is out of stock on almost all websites. However, if you do find it somewhere then do grab it because it is super opaque and longlasting while being pretty affordable too!

Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel – Lychee Delight | Review and Swatches

I just came to know that Nykaa is releasing some new shades as a part of their Pastel Nail Enamel collection, and here I am, still drooling over the shades from the original range. On my nails today is the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel in the shade 82 Lychee Delight, a sophisticated yet unique nude nail color that is the perfect balance of white and grey.

As the name suggests, this shade seems to be inspired by the color of the pulp of the lychee fruit, although it has slightly heavier grey undertones. This milky grey color will complement fair to medium skin tones really well and is the perfect shade for professional women.

This particular shade requires at least 2 coats and you may even need 3 coats if you want a completely opaque finish. Just like the rest of the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamels, the formula of Lychee Delight is also quite thin and easy to work with. The brush is a narrow one and you will need to go over each nail at least thrice to coat the entire surface. Despite the brush being narrow, the richness of the formula prevents the final finish from being streaky.

Priced at INR 179, the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamels are quite a bargain, considering the huge range of flattering shades they are available in. The only problem that I have with the formula is that it begins to chip within 3 days. Nevertheless, these nail colors are gorgeous while they last on the nails and I will definitely be checking out the new shades launched by Nykaa for this season!

I hope that this review was helpful, you can buy the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamels here.

Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel in Lilac Cupcake | Review

I got the Nykaa Pastel Nail Enamel in the shade #73 Lilac Cupcake as a birthday perk with my purchase from Nykaa.com, and it arrived just in time for spring. You know that a nail paint is good if you apply the same color twice in a row, and that is what happened with this beautiful periwinkle blue nail color.

What impressed me the most about this formula is the opacity that it provides in just one coat. I do throw on a second coat for good measure but you can definitely get away with just one. I do not need to say much about the color because it speaks for itself. A milky, pastel blue that is nothing like anything else I own. This color is subtle but bright at the same time and looks really good on the toes as well!

The formula provides a medium shine and has a wear time of 4-5 days. The pastel range is my favorite among all the Nykaa nails paints, the colors are unique and beautiful. Priced at INR 179 for a 9 ml bottle, this is the perfect nail color for a beach vacation!

Easy Nail Art For Beginners

If you are bored of monochromatic nails but do not have the time or steady hand to create intricate nail art then accent nails are the best solution for you. You basically paint your nails in the usual manner but add some design or contrasting shade to one of the nails on each hand. This will instantly enhance the beauty of your manicure without taking too much time or effort.

Here is an example that I created with orange nails and a metallic gold accent nail. You can use gold with warm colors or silver with cool toned colors to make your manicure look trendy. You can also add a pop of neon to neutral shades for a bright contrast. The options are infinite, just let the creative juices flow. I created my summery manicure with the Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour in Orange Couture and the Colorbar Metallic Nail Lacquer in the shade Treasure.

Kara Nail Polish Remover Wipes | Review

Today I will talk about a product that makes the process of painting the nails even more pleasurable. The Kara Nail Polish Remover Wipes are an excellent alternative to carrying around a bottle of liquid nail paint remover when you are traveling. Each wipe is soaked with Olive Oil and Vitamin E that help to keep the nails well nourished and hydrated. A single wipe is capable of removing the nail paint from both the hands, even when you are wearing a dark color on your nails.

Another great thing about this product is that you no longer have to deal with the strands of cotton left behind by cotton pads, when you want to repaint your nails immediately. The only thing I don’t like is that the oil makes the process a little messy and the color and oil may spread all over the fingers. However, the residue comes off quite easily on washing or wiping the fingers with cotton.

The wipes are available in different scents but my favorite is the strawberry one. A pack of 30 wipes is priced at INR 100, which is quite reasonable considering that the product is very effective and acetone free too. These nail wipes are extremely convenient to use and have become a handbag essential for me.

I hope this review was helpful. Buy this product here.
