Autumn Cat Painting Nailart inspired by Persis Clayton Weirs

Hello Lovelies,
Today I am sharing a nailart which I am really proud of and I think I will regard it as one of my best till now. It's first time I painted any animal especially cat on my nails. This painting from Persis Clayton Weirs caught attention and I wondered if I can paint it !! Frankly initially I was scared to try as it was different from what I usually paint (landscapes) but I anyways tried it and I am glad I did. Creating this painting helped me to explore a different dimension of my skill. I learnt a new thing -keep pushing yourself :) Now you can check out the pics below and let me know what you think.....

Diwali falls 18 days after Dushera festival  (Dushera marks the demise of demon king Ravana by Lord Rama).

It's biggest festival of Hindus and rituals extend to period of five days. There is another story that Goddess Laxmi was born during Diwali festival.

--MoYou London Rectangular Stamper and Scraper-- First Impression/Review (Video)

Hello Lovelies,


Today I am sharing my review on MoYou London Rectangular Stamper and Scraper. Since I am not much into stamping I didn't own any good stamper and after exploring into the ocean of stampers (online research) I thought to try MoYou stamper and I am glad I did. Before this I had one Konad stamper which works really good for me since I have flat nail beds but it is small in size plus I find that I have to be super-quick with it as polish dries very fast on it. I also tried soft rubber stamper from Aliexpress but it also didn't work for me.....So here I am with my new love "MoYou Rectangular Stamper" :D. Keep reading my experience and also watch my review video linked at the end of the post.

Textured Tweed & Swirls Nailart- Fall nail design with Video Tutorial

Hello Lovelies,

Fall is slowly advancing and nature is slowly changing to show it's best outfit, Right? Sadly I can only enjoy fall season in pictures and online. Being in "non-fall" zone of the world has deprived me from experiencing this magic  :( But I won't quit painting my nails for fall that's only thing I can do haha so here is my first mani for this season. It's #PatternNails but inspired from dark earthy tones of fall. I tried to create #TweedNails but used #DryBrushTechnique for it so they look "Tweed-ish" and then painted the design with acrylic colours. It looks great on nails and the best part you don't have to spend hours to make your nails look that pretty :D . For those who love to watch Video Tutorials don't forget to click on the Tutorial link at the end of the post. Enjoy more pics below
