I have been on a lookout for a chunky glitter nailposh ever since I can remember, sadly I didn’t find any. No I did not want to spend whopping 500 bucks on just a nail polish and I DON’T order from international websites hence I had no option but to make my own. YUP!
So You’d be surprised how easy it is to get some chunky glitter on your nails. It looks gorrrrJUS! ..also be prepared to see a gazillion pictures in this post hehe. Well what else do you expect from a glitter-obsessed-freak?
Things you need :
Clear polish (Top Coat)
Nail paint remover
Paper(to create the mess on)
Last but definitely not the least, Lose glitter (You can find this at craft stores, random beauty shops, pretty much anywhere)
1. Use polish underneath if you feel like, I have used a red. (You can also skip this)
2. Don’t do it on all your nails, choose one. I chose my ring finger’s nail.
3. Put a tiny drop of glue onto your nail and spread it nicely. Wait till it turns tacky.
4. Put some glitter on a paper and dip your finger in. (You can cover the sides of your nail to avoid mess but I was too excited to try it out, hence I didn’t tape)
5. Look at it, so vivid *do a happy dance* Clean up sides if you haven’t taped it. I used a Q-tip and a nail paint remover.
6. Let it set for a bit, say 40-50 seconds.
7. Top it off with a clear polish/top coat & voila youre DONE!

Since I have already shared the ELF excitement story with you, lets get into the review straight-away this time.
I have heard the best thing about this particular colour Candid Coral, its supposed to be the closest dupe of the NARS “Orgasm” and I have been wanting it forever. The only difference is the price, where Orgasm costs a bomb, ELF is lot cheaper.
The packaging is exactly like NARS which is quite attractive, black case with a tiny inbuilt mirror. No brush, though. Also a peek through plastic on the top.
Candid coral is a beauty peachy-pink colour with very fine gold shimmer. Even though it has shimmer, it still is wearable in the daytime. It gives an instant shine and glam to the cheeks and looks lovely on almost every skintone. I made my mother try it, she's slightly duskier than I am. It actually comes out the best on medium to dark skin tones.
Ingredients and the brand says about the product :

I couldn’t have been happier when I reveived these E.L.F products (haul here) a while back, sent by my cousin who lives in the US(Yes, God bless the cousins in the US). I couldn’t make up my mind which product to start from ! (Happy much?) Yes I was that excited. I had been longing for ELF since forever now, specially after raves in the blogsphere and also YOUTUBERS.
So I decided to start with the basic tool,i.e, the eyeliner. I am a huge fan of jet black eyeliners and hardly use any other colors. I received a pencil eyeliner/kohl, sketch pen eyeliner and a liquid liner. Being a sketch pen eyeliner lover, I picked it first. I wanted to make sure I start using them at regular intervals so that I can compare them better(post on this after all three are reviewed).
This is what the E.L.F Waterproof Eyeliner Pen looks like :
What the brand says about the product :
ELF Waterproof Eyeliner pen comes in a sketch pen form with sturdy plastic body and a cap that is too tight to handle. Trust me when I say this, the cap is extremely hard to open. Its so tight that I almost damaged the tip of the eyeliner.
Talking of eyeliner, its jet black in color and is decently pigmented. The first time I wore it, I didn’t use more than two swipes and after an hour or so I noticed that the eyeliner from the inner corner of my upper lashline had almost disappeared and that left me disappointed. I thought of giving it another chance and I used it for 5-6 times with 3-4 swipes. It definitely looked better.
But the main concern is that this eyeliner starts to crack and look uneven after atleast 1.5 hours of application, hence you might have to carry it around for touch ups.
The texture is smooth, the tip is thin and helps in drawing very precise lines. I usually end up using this just to make wings in the outer corners.
Its not the best product but at $ 1, I didnt expect much either.
Price : $ 1 or INR 51.
Why Buy? : You can totally skip this product if youre not an eyeliner junkie. Incase youre, just grab it for the money.
Availability : ZERO! They dont sell in India neither do they ship.

This post is dedicated to the lovely Sonakshi Sinha. We all have heard of how she was over-weight and not really attractive prior to joining the B-town. I thought of compiling some pictures to make the transformation prominent. (Like it was needed? :P) No blah blah, enjoy the pictures :)
Sonakshi seen here with folks, Shatru sir & the mother. (What on the earth were you thinking? The earrings are HIDEOUS)
Giving Reena Roy(Famous actor of yesteryears) a tough competition, eh?
BAM!!! Yes, the fresh-est face I've ever seen.
In the latest Dabboo Ratnani's 2012 Calender.
The CURLS. Love, absolute love. The lipstick is washing you out though. Hmm.
Now comes the most-noticeable and the most recent too.
DANG! At the Dabboo Ratnani Calender Launch Lunch Party.
I LOVE THE NEW HAIR! Yes, She cut her tresses.
So, what do you think about her New Look? YAY or NAY?
For me, a definite YAY-ness.
