D.I.Y: Glitter Nail Art

This is one of the easiest D.I.Y you've ever come across. It hardly takes 15 minutes to wrap up the whole thing with a new glam nail art.

Here's what you need:
Glitter
Transparent Nail Polish
Acetone (ONLY if you mess up)
Cotton (For the acetone)

PROCEDURE
Step 1:
Take a bottle of transparent nail polish along with your favorite color of dry glitter.


Step 2:
Mix the glitter or you can even choose a single color for the nail art. I mixed all the colors together for the multi colored nail art.


Step 3:
Start with the nail art by first applying the transparent nail polish on one nail.


Step 4:
Now put your finger inside the box of glitter and give it 2 seconds. Then slowly take out your finger and check if the glitter has settled properly.




Step 5:
Now continue doing this with all of your nails till you finish the process. 



If your hands are messy, clean the glitter with a sleek clean paintbrush and your nail art is all done.

Fashion Haul: Holidays Mode.

Now I know I've been way too much active on the blog since June has started but you can't blame me. 11th grade is way too slow and there is so much of free time that somehow I'm coming up with posts on a very fast pace.
With all the internships getting over I have so much of free time that I usually land up in a mall. Here's what I got from my last visit to the mall:

Eyelash Curler
Before you all think why I would buy an eyelash curler, I must tell that I have long and pretty eyelashes. No kidding, I literally flaunt how perfect sized they are.

From: F21; Price: $11

Pocket Size Mirror
My last mirror which was also from F21 had a little accident so I had to buy a new one. The good part about this one is that it matches perfectly with my eyelash curler in terms of  color.

From: F21; Price: $6

NY 83 Crop Top
I have no idea what new love I've developed for numbers. Wherever I see a tshirt having a number printed on it, I put my hands on it. But this specific crop tee has a different style on the shoulders so it gives a eccentric look

From: Promod; Price: $8

Feather Earrings
As soon as I laid my eyes on these, I couldn't leave these. I had been looking for long feather earrings since five months and finally I got the perfect ones.


From: Claire's; Price: $7.5

Floral Crop Top
At least one floral printed crop top was needed and this one was pretty. It has a cross back so it gives the impression to be worn on a pool part or a beach.

From: Pret; Price: $15
Floral Snapback 
Frankly speaking, I regret buying this because I have no idea where I'm going to wear a snapback so flowery. Anyways, it's not a bad investment though. Gives a girly look and the print is colorful.

From: F21; Price: $5.5

Beaded Headband
As I have mentioned in my earlier posts that I have a thing for headbands, wherever I see one, I have to buy it. This one is quite quirky and I basically bought this one because I didn't have a headband like this before. 

From: Thrift; Price: $3


P.S- credits for better picture quality goes to my mum for finally buying me a DSLR.

Nikhil Thampi: The Upcoming Designer.

Born on: 4th November, 1986

Favorite City: London.
Nikhil Thampi who always thought that he was destined to learn about human behavior and who also is a  psychology graduate wasn't aware that his life would take a different turn and he would land in the fashion industry.
The secret to his success is that he always followed his heart and not his head. The boss of all the work is his heart. His journey to success was also possible by being independent, individualist and also being original. 
His first collection was showcased in 2011 at Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai. His biggest inspiration was always his grandmother and his family was always a big support in pushing him to be a part of the fashion week.


Nikhil Thampi doesn't believe in keeping it same. He likes to reinvent and create something new everytime to avoid boredom in his clothes. His designing is fierce and you may be taken by surprise everytime he brings out a new collection. 
The high points of his career was being a part of Lakme Fashion Week twice along with judging NIFT Graduation Exhibition and having 3 segments on him on the tv shows: Style Police and I Love Style.
One of Nikhil's biggest achievements was being invited to the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.
His clothes are found at Pernia's Pop Up Shop and also at his Delhi store which is: Twist @ 2, Hauz Khas Village.

The Sweet Sixteen.

People say when you turn 16, you cross a milestone. But then it doesn't feel like I crossed one.
Yes, I finally turned sixteen. 
Yesterday was a blast. So, the primary plan was to go out for a lunch with family but I was shocked when they threw a surprise party for me.
This is what I wore:






Dress: Forever New
Eye Liner: Revlon

The day couldn't get any better. 
One of the best birthdays ever.

XOXO
