Nude Everything: Nails

My obsession with nude nail polish is not a new one, but definitely one that has amplified immensely over the past couple of months. Honestly, I probably have already written something similar to this very post, but I’m going to write this anyway because I cannot seem to get over this trend. Nude nail polish. Nude lipstick. Nude eyeshadow. I’m thinking this would make for perfect content for a mini series.
As for nude nails, it has been all that has been adorning my nails for the past couple of months. No jokes. Every time I try to switch things up with some of my old favourites –a pale pink, a butterscotch or even my supposed all-time favourite, a fire engine red, two days later, I am so annoyed with how my nails look, I wipe it all off for a nude again. There’s something very appealing about how clean and minimalist nude nail polish can look.

Urban Decay Naked Palettes in India!

If you're anything like me and have been hooked on to the blogging world for a long, long time, this particular piece of information might tickle your fancy. Bloggers have been talking about the Urban Decay Naked Palette for a good while now. It has been on my wishlist for much too long. It always seemed a little like heaven to me -beautiful but untouchable because I had never actually seen it. 
Now imagine my surprise when I saw it sitting on a stand in a local store.

Day to Night: Summer Dresses


I have a new found liking for dresses. I always thought I was a black skinny jeans kinda girl. Now, the thought of black skinny jeans make me cringe. Sadly, I own too many of them to completely abandon them. I have a new interest in denim and dresses. I think they can both be so versatile and transform smoothly from daytime to nighttime. Here's an old school outfit collage post with a few ideas to transform a summer dress from day to night. Let's leave the denim for another day?

Winged Liner Is Classy

I like winged eyeliner. I like Alexa Chung. I like makeup. I also like coffee.
I've always been an eyeliner kid. When I was younger and my mum didn't allow me to wear makeup, I would draw on eyeliner using kajal. The kind that comes in a tub and you have to stick your finger in to use it (and then it gets in your nails and everything is gross). So essentially, I was drawing my eyeliner using the tip of my finger. Needless to say, it wasn't a good look. Throughout the years, I've practiced and experimented with various other (more conventional) forms of eyeliner. And although I wouldn't go so far to say that I have perfected the art, I can surely say I'm better at it.

The Wrap Up

I've been conscious about this being the fifth and last year of my college life for a while now.

What comes after the absolute end? I always wondered. And wondered and wondered. I expected to shed a few tears. Three months ago, I didn't realize how close to the end I was. Maybe when I have one month to go it'll hit me, I thought. One month to go and it still didn't hit me. Maybe when I have one week to go it'll hit me. One week to go and still nothing. Maybe on my absolute last day it'll hit me. My last day went by like a breeze.

Dry Skin Saviours

 The seasons are changing. Winter is gone for good. Summer is almost here (or spring, should we call it?). And the air has this uncanny dryness to it, which is so uncharacteristic of Mumbai weather. I like to call it the dry calm before the humid storm.  My skin has been getting oddly dry for March. Sometimes even drier than it got during December or January. 
Here are the products I use to salvage the situation.

My Everyday Makeup

I'm one of those people who are always very affected by the weather. The heat, the cold, the humidity -I am extremely conscious about these things and they affect my moods and behavior greatly. This isn't always ideal because I hate hot humid climates, it's hot and humid where I live, which is why the chances of me being in a perpetual bad mood are very high. 
 To counter this, I like to get myself excited for the change in seasons. Even though I'm not looking forward to the blazing summers, I'm looking forward to bright nail polish and tank tops and shorts and sunglasses. It may sound idiotic, but I have learned that it actually works. Similarly, I switch my makeup up every now and again based on what works best with the air around me. This is currently what I've been wearing.
