Cute Blue & Purple Summer Nails

I have been thinking I need to do more summer nail art! As vacations approach and relaxation begins, some people may have a few minutes to do some pretty easy nail art!This look is glittery and fun, but not over the top, and a change from a solid manicure. I also decided to record my first tutorial with this look, because I know people would like to see how to do this nail art as well! The video was pretty fun, and a learning experience! It took me an embarrassing 2 hours to edit it, but here they are.

I used China Glaze Aquadelic, Fade Into Hue, and (my favorite glitter) Lorelei's Tiara for this look

A break and some news!!


Sometimes a break does you good. Sometimes a break makes you realise how much do you actually miss something! And sometimes it can make you realise that some things might not be as important as you thought. And something needs priority over others.
Yeah... what can I say. My blog and nail art is important to me and I missed it like crazy!
So why the break u ask? Well ... The news is I am a mommy!!!!!! 
My cute little bundle was born on 13th of June and is almost a month old now. And he has cutesy lil nails himself. 😊

During pregnancy the smell of polish made me mad and drove me nauseous. I tried to paint my nails a few times but my mind was just not into it. Saddened me quite a bit I tell ya! 
I tried again today and I didn't gag!!!! However let me warn you I have nubbins like nubbins I've never had before. Ahh the price we pay for love! But I m happy that I have polish on my nails after 6-7 months and I cudnt care anymore abt my cuticles or the shape or size of my nails. (For now that is).

On my nails today is BK holo no.5. A dark red holo with strong holo effect. 

On its own it looked more like fuchsia on me. I have applied 2 thin coats. But maybe next time I'll use a red base.

Next pic is in natural light. But on a really dull rainy day so the holo isn't flashing

Though the baby does seem to take considerable time and attention I shall be posting as and when possible. 

Yay! M a mommy! I know it's tiring and all that but frankly being a mummy isn't as stressful and scary as I imagined it would be. Also I am staying with my mom a couple of months to help me out with the baby so I am really grateful for everything she does. Moms r d best!! ❤❤❤

A hearty thanks to you all for still sticking with my blog. A lot of readers were concerned and messaged me directly to ask about my whereabouts. Thank you!
Also I did read that GFC is out so please follow me on bloglovin.

See ya soon!
