NOTD: Brown and Maroon Water Marble

Water marbling can be a great way to create deigns on your nails. It is a versatile technique that allows creation of very different effects just by changing the pattern or the nail paints.
In this NOTD, I have shown different marble effects on two accent nails (ring and thumb).
On the ring finger, I have created a floral pattern and on the thumb, a swirl design. Though the end result is very different on the two fingers, I have used the same orange and maroon nail polish in both cases and have just taken advantage of the way these two polish interact with each other to come up with two very different looks.
Hope you like them.
Till next time...

Some Bling For Your Nails: L'Oreal Color Riche Le Nail Art 004 Pearly Dress Review

Though I prefer creating my own nail art over buying stick-on/ stamp-on options, the L'Oreal nail stickers looked tempting enough for me to buy.
Product name: L'Oreal Color Riche Le Nail Art. Shade: 004 Pearly Dress.
Product price: INR 299.
Product quantity: 18 stickers.

My Thoughts: These nail stickers come in a black envelope with a clear slot through which the design can be seen.
Packaging: front
At the back, clear instructions are provided regarding application. I think it is very clever how the brand has put images of all available stickers on the back. Very tempting.

Packaging: back
The shade I chose was 004 Pearly dress which is a pretty silver grey shimmery sticker, studded with silver crystals.

Sniff Sniff: Revlon Scented Perfume Nail Enamel in Raspberry Rupture Review

I bought this scented polish a while ago. At this time, the review might not even be relevant but I would like to share my opinions just the same.

Raspberry Rapture
Product name: Revlon Scented Perfume Nail Enamel. Shade: Raspberry Rupture. Product price: INR 150.
Product quantity: 8 ml.
Shelf life: Three years.

My thoughts: In the bottle, the nail paint looks raspberry pink with hints of blue undertone. On my fingers however, they appear a hotter pink and is not very flattering for my skin tone.
