Flames Nails

Posted by Swapna Patil at Thursday, February 13, 2014 0 comments

I wanted to attempt flame nails, but not really flames of fire.

Just wanted something different, so tried this one with glittery nail paint. I used grey color as a background with a shiny black flames.

          But next time, I will try to make fire on flames or may be with different color combinations.

Grey Nail Polish: Safari nail polish HD 36


Glittery Nail polish:  NYC Rock Muse Smokey Nail Top Coat. This one is cheap but gives nice effect!

Dandelion Nails

Posted by Swapna Patil at Tuesday, February 04, 2014 2 comments

I wanted to make some cute and sweet design on nails. I was searching and searching the whole internet and I came across these dandelions nails. Photobucket

So simple yet so cute. I wish my fingernails hadn't been occupied otherwise I would have made this one for sure. Maybe next time. This is the time I feel we should have some more fingers. Photobucket

I saw it first on MadManis. She had made a really good tutorial , if you want to try it. You can check that tutorial. I would really like you to try this nails.

I made my versions of nails in which birds starts flying when you blow up a dandelion. I used Safari HO 34 as a background color. It turned out to be really beautiful.

I really love blowing dandelions and making wishes. It is not a flower, but a weed; yet so sensitive and beautiful. I feel like writing this lines:

Just grab a dandelion in your hands
Close your eyes and blow the spores away
Make a wish
& believe it will grow someday.

What do you think of these nails? Had you tried them too?
If you have any suggestions or recommendations , please let me know!! Enjoy!

My New Nail Paint Rack

Posted by Swapna Patil at Tuesday, January 28, 2014 2 comments

Hello girls! I would love to show my new nail polish organizer. It is a small cute shelf. I went to market and at Xenox, I found this shelf and that too on 50% discount. 

I love to keep my things organize. It helps to prevent us from wasting time. And as my nail polish collection is growing, so I had to find something that will help me store my lovely nail paints properly. I was using shoe box to store my nails till now. It was not handy enough for me. I really had hard time finding what I was looking for and I found this:milkysmile 

This shelf is really useful. All my  nails fits into it.milkysmile I had organized all my nail paints according to brands. You can keep at least 12 nail paint sin one block,so you can keep around 70 nail paints in this box. This shelf works for me.

I was planning to build one myself. But before I start to build one, I found this one. I am not building a nail rack till this one overflows, which will not take long.milkysmile 

Isn't it cool? Easy and manageable.

So, if you have any better ways, please let me know!

Republic Day Nails

Posted by Swapna Patil at Sunday, January 26, 2014 1 comments

Wish you all a very Happy Republic Day
I am not in India at this moment but I miss India so much. So, I thought to pay to India in my own way. :)


These nails features mainly all three colors of our tricolor flag. Oh! I miss those days, getting up early in morning, going to school and paying tribute to our beloved Indian flag. A dance parade by singing patriotic songs. <3

On thumb I made a waving tricolor flag. On middle finger, we all Indian in all different colors, but still together and united. Then I painted India gate, our national monument. 

I hope you all like it and have a good day. Happy Republic Day once again.


Jai Hind! Long Live india! :)Flag of India

Valentines Day Nails

Posted by Swapna Patil at Friday, January 24, 2014 0 comments

Hello everyone! I know it is 20 days too early but I thought of starting with Valentine's day nail art. I had made a collection of nail arts for Valentine's day. 

The first set is full of glittering hearts. It is very simple to do nails. I got these glittering nails for free along with other 3D nails which you will see below. Isn't it wonderful? I think pink base will also be a good combination. Have to try it once. 

This one is free hand Valentine's Day nails. Red, color of love is a base color. I uses acrylic white and black to make a free hand drawing on red nail paint.Its a great combination of colors. <3

For next nails, I used China Glaze Under the Broad Walk and China Glaze Crackle Oxidized Aqua to create crackle nails. For a thumb finger I used China Glaze Liquid Leather and 3D hearts. Full of love!! :D

The nails below are painted using China Glaze Hey Sailor. I used  Essie Blanc for second finger with dots made from black acrylic color and 3d Nails. 

This one I had made last year but was just getting used to the blogging. This is also used with Essie Blanc and black acrylic color. Wrote some love letters and messages which I only I can understand and a letter envelope with a heart in middle.

Thanks for checking out my Valentine's day nail art collection, hope you liked it!! :* :) XOXOXO
