My Take on Revlon Icy Violet:
Icy Violet is a nice shade from purple family. It has micro glitters in blue color. I think they are really very fine and camera would not be able to capture their effect. Still I have tried to take pictures in different lights and location. Like day light, evening time, lamp light and tube light :D Let’s see how they all look. Enjoy NOTD’s pictures.

 This is a cool deep purple with blue iridescent shimmer that flashes in the light. :) After 5 days of application. It is still intact without any signs of chipping.
 Look from a distance :)
You would love it if you are looking a purple shade. The consistency is also pretty decent and it glides really smooth. 2 coats of it and you are good to go!
§  Very smooth to glide and apply.
§  Highly pigmented.
§  No chipping before a week.
§  Not very shiny.
§  Very good coverage with two coats
§  Good lasting power 
§  Easy to remove with acetone/remover.


§  Might require a top coat for very high shine.
Will I Repurchase Revlon Icy Violet:
May be, I will try the shades that I don’t have.

A Mini Ethnic Haul

Hey Guys,

This ethnic haul was done some time ago and forgot to share with you all. It was an event that happened in CP New Delhi called Puraani Delhi ka khaana…..yum!! I must say the event was very nicely organized even after being a no-fee-for-entry one. The cleanliness was properly considered which I liked the most. There were live performances too. So let me jump now directly to the stuff I got from there.

Here’s the first one:  Black Golden Potli Clutch
I was eyeing a potli sort of clutch that can go with my heavy sarees esp in golden tone. And when I saw this I knew I got to buy it!

The most awesome stuff we had was jalebis….all with a sweet tooth would understand the power of those sweet-juice-filled-round-pipes. They were out of the world, damn crispy and sweet.

Next is bangles in pretty blue.


Last thing I picked up was a casual bangle bracelet. Something in it attracted me so much so that after leaving it once I came back to grab it. May be the smoothness, or the shine, or the design….or maybe everything.  ;)

All in all a fundoo Saturday evening with whole family at the good old CP. It happens to be one of my favorites places in the capital. Hope u guys liked what I pick.

Which is your favorite place in the city?

LA Colors - Magnetic Force Review

Hey-lo Beauties,

I am reviewing a nail enamel from LA colors, color craze range – Magnetic Force.

Product Desciption:
Color Craze is an exciting new collection of vivid, bright colors for fingers and toes! Brilliant colors instantly add character to any style. No matter what your mood is – these playful, dazzling, flirty shades will surely brighten your day & nails. 72 shades to choose from!

1$, picked up from dollar tree :D 

Quantity:13 ml / .44 FL OZ

My Take on LA Color Magnetic Force:
It is a happy bright coral from orange family. Pretty tangy one I must say with gold glitter that shine in sun light. :D While taking pictures I realized its varied looks with different angles. At times it appeared happy bright pink baby while sometimes too much of orange was the dominant shade. Check it out.
                                                               Enjoy NOTD’s pictures.   

                                     Here it look pinkish-coral in day light / with flash.

It seems pretty close to neon orange esp when taken in shade / without flash. :)   

                               It has got a sturdy cap and the applicator is just fine.

You would love it if you are looking for tangy shade that gives a nice pop of color. Also since neon are so in this spring u might love to flaunt the dual effect (wink) shade. Only thing which I did not like that this time it chipped off too early as per my expectations! But overall pretty tangy coral :) Check it out!

§  Smooth to glide and apply.
§  Highly pigmented.
§  Pretty coral shade with gold glitters.
§  Very good coverage with two coats
§  Decent price. 

§  I saw my first chip-off just 2 days later this time L
§  Not very easy to remove with acetone/remover. 

Will I Repurchase LA Colors Magnetic Force:
May be, I will try the shades that I don’t have.

Go Green & Preen ;)

Hey Guys,

How are you all doing this week? Was wondering how it would be like with a mid week off! Come to work for 2 days, go on a break with mid week off and come again for 2 days and then enjoy weekends....sounds too good to be true :D 

Okay back to reality. Here we are fighting off the Wednesday Greens...similar to Monday Blues. And what better way to ward of the mood-lowering evils than with our makeup and beauty sword :)

Enjoy the pictures :)

With the BB cover ;)
Mingling with nature's green
