Hello!

Happy Navratri to everyone!

People especially women who celebrate nine nights festivals of Nav Durga follow the particular color of the day. This tradition is very popular among states of Maharashtra and Gujarat.

Women follow this tradition widely and adorn themselves with similar color clothes and accessories during Navratri.

This nail polish I had bought during my visit to Vietnam. And I repent for not buying more bottles!! This is the best white nail polish I have ever used. There are good white polishes in different brands but for the price I paid this is a treat! Applying this creamy white polish with the long good brush of the bottle cap is so satisfying…

High gloss and durable nail polish with wide range of shades to choose from. Note that these are not UV gel polishes and does not require UV lamp to dry.

El corazon is my all time favourite brand and this shade gives a royal look to your Navratri avatar! This brand has its own unique formula of nail polishes which prevents nails from staining as well as improves nail quality. Maybe I will pit up one more post with its special base coats for healthier nails.

This is a pretty shade of yellow. Requires 3-4 thin coats to be perfectly opaque and gives you a creamy finish. When I had purchased it was Rs. 109/- for 8ml bottle. Decent pricing with great quality. Must have at least few shades in your collection.

CP trendies – crazy for neons – Shocking green B902

This nail polish set was gifted to me by my close friend. As per her its one among the affordable polishes available in Dubai. They are 11ml round bottles with thin bristles. Loved the quality and shades but I wish they had little more thicker bristles. I felt after drying they give slightly matte finish but they are not matte polishes. So a top coat is must if you are looking for a high glossy look. But overall I don’t mind investing in few more polishes of this brand.

Navratri day 8: color : Peacock green

Significance: The colour Peacock Green is significant as it indicates that the wishes and prayers of mortals shall be answered by the Goddess. Goddess Durga is worshipped in the form of Gauri on this day of Ashtami, as people revere her as the Goddess of fertility.

Nail polish: Kaleidoscope Lakomania LM -05

Kaleidoscope Lakomania LM – 05

Kaleidoscope is by El corazon brand itself. So there is no need to doubt about the quality. Lakomaniac series of polishes are color changing polishes/chameleon polishes. They reflect different shades with different lighting.

El corazon Confetti 529a

Another gorgeous collection of confetties by El corazon. Firstly I love these flat bottles of their collection. It looks royal! I am not a hard core glitter fan but these confetti polishes stole my heart! They look grainy textured but believe me its as smooth as other polishes. But for high glossy look you need a good top coat.

Cute Cat Nail Art Water Decals!!

Hello friends!!

Today Creative Nails has got some cute cats for you in the nail basket 🙂 :-). These are water decals bought from Born Pretty Store. These must be dipped in water before using to expose their adhesive side. They are not very sticky, which means you can move them around as much as you want to get them positioned just right. On the other hand, traditional adhesive stickers are very sticky and so you need to place them carefully and you get only one shot to place them at the exact position. Most of us know how to use sticky stickers but not water decals. In case if you have never used water decals before,don’t you worry! Creative Nails will help you! Follow these simple steps.

1) Paint your nails with clear polish and let it dry.

2) Apply the base coat matching your water decal. Let it dry.

3) Cut the water decals with scissor. Don’t worry if your decal is not having clear boarder but take care to see that you will not cut the plastic protective coating.

4) Take water in a bowl and put the decals in water. Leave the decal under the surface of the water for about 15-20 seconds.

5) Remove your decal from the water and it should easily slide off of the paper backing. If the decal does not slip off, it means you didn’t submerge it long enough under the water.

6) Carefully take the decal and place it on your nail. It is not so sticky. So you can slowly slide and re-position the decal.

7) Wait a couple minutes till the droplets of water have dried up and then apply a topcoat to get the decal to really stick onto your nails.

8) You are done!!!

Tiger Print Nails!

Hello friends

After fishes and caterpillars, now it’s the turn of the Tiger. The tiger is the largest of the cat species, reaching a total body length of up to 3.38 m (11.1 ft) over curves and weighing up to 388.7 kg (857 lb) in the wild!! Isn’t it quite dangerous to get such a huge and wild animal on nails? So this time Creative Nails has bought only prints resembling the tiger. With this nail art, Creative Nails wants to leave a message to all those people who buy items made from animal body parts – “Please save these wild animals from extinction; else, in future, we may get to see them only in art galleries and museums”

Velvet Nail Dust!

Hey friends!

I am trying out new things in nail art. This time, it’s the turn of Velvet Nail Dust. I just tried using it and created a simple nail art. I thought of sharing it with you all so that you too can decorate your nails with velvet dust.

Step 1: Apply two coats of base color.
Step 2: Before it gets dried sprinkle the velvet dust on your nail.
Step 3: Slightly tap on the velvety dust so that it adheres to the surface of the nail.
Step 4: Remove the excess velvet dust using a fan brush. Don’t worry if you don’t have a fan brush. Just hold your fingers upside down and tap on them. The excess dust will fall off. Wipe clean the edges of the nails with cotton.
