My HG Top Coat-Essence Gel-Look Top Coat Review, Swatches

Hey people.. Happy Monday :) (coz I am sure most of you might be reading this tomorrow and not yesterday/today :P)
These days I am not having much of the Monday morning blues.. May be because I am liking my work :D Anyway coming to nails and nail art.. I am bad at it. Okay not to complain, whatever I did nothing really used to look great at the end. After watching so many tutorials on YouTube,I have come to a conclusion that no nail art is complete without a proper topcoat. That too, when you have an option of getting a gel look topcoat.. Please go ahead and get it. I just did the same.
When Essence launched their products in India, I was really happy. It was known to be a budget friendly brand with amazing nail paints and eye makeup. *Never really a fan of their lip products*
I have bought the ESSENCE GEL-LOOK TOP COAT

Pink and Silver Glitter Nails - French Style Glitter Nail Art

After my try on the leopard print nails I have taken some inspiration from the other nail art lovers and created this. The below mentioned pic is the enhanced version of what I created in the original post. I mean, my idea was not this at first but it is the last pic of this blogpost.

Animal Print Shimmery Nude Nails

Hey people,
I am completely new to this feature. I mean, the nail art section.I am a naive in the sponge nail art, you can see my work here 
Okay, I always tried it out most of the times,I fail. I was and I am still unsuccessful in creating marble nails, stamping! However if you are following me on instagram, you must have known that I recently bought a set of nail art brushes. I have used one brush from the lot to create this look.
I have used the New U nail paint in Sienna which I reviewed here 
Used the black polish from Maybelline Colorshow Nail Paints.
The chunky glitters from bornprettystore.
I have used the easy peel off base coat and it is from Etude House.
The top coat is from Essence Gel Finish Top Coat. 
Hallographic Top coat from Health n Glow Store

Method:
1. Apply the base coat.
2. Apply the base colour which is a skin colour here.
3. Apply the hallographic top coat on all the nails.
4. Take the brush and mark semi circles with the black nail paint.
5. Take glitters and apply on the ring finger.
6. End up with applying the Top Coat.
I do not have long nails unlike the other nail art enthusiasts. My thumb nail is broken :(
I like to keep my ring finger special and hence it always has some sort of shimmers.

Holika Holika Sand Nails in 06 Review and Swatches

Hey Girls..you know how much I love the Korean Makeup and Skincare, I am slowly shifting my basic needs to the Korean brands. Recently I found love in nail paints and I really wanted to try the texture ones. There are many brands which recently launched their own textured nail paints but they not really impressed me.May be because they didn't have many colours or the glitters(which I didn't want in my textured paint). I knew my requirement was clear. I wanted a light shade and a normal paint with no chunks of glitter. When I ran out of my foot masks,I wanted to shop for them and suddenly I found this textured nail paint from the brand "Holika Holika"

New U Nail Paints in ShowStopper and Burnt Sienna - Review, Swatches


Hey girlies
On my recent visit to New U store, I picked up few things out of which I have already reviewed the Beauty Formulas Cucumber Invigorating Scrub which totally impressed me. While I was paying the bill, I saw these cuties neatly arranged near the counter and I had to pick these after all, they retailed at 49 INR per piece.

Estée Lauder Nail Lacquer in Nouveau Riche and Love Bites - Review,Swatches


Hey Girlies
This post is a bit special to me coz these are the first ever high end brand Nail Paints that I am reviewing here on getsetblush.
To start off, I would like to know how many of you ask your friends/cousins/boyfriend/husband to get some makeup goodies when they are coming home from abroad.?
Notice that I was referring to only guys.
Well I asked my friend to get SOME nail paints and he got me these. He was complaining that "I thought nail paint is what you asked and not the brand nor the colour ".
I admit the fact that I didn't give a hint coz we both forgot talking about what exactly I wanted.
So, he got these two which he felt that I would like them coz he knows that I paint my ring finger with some shimmery nail paint and rest the plain or something not so bold.
Look what he got me.. !!
  Estée Lauder !!! I have never thought I would ever buy these at least not this year. But he got me and I'm so happy seeing these babies.
Price and Quantity:
$21 (around 1200 INR) for 0.3 oz *Pricey*

Hey girls..
I have always loved the matte finish nail polish. Somehow, I wanted the non shine ones. I was eyeing the matte turn top coat for quite sometime now :D
This post is about one such a nail polish which would turn non shine and gives the perfect matte finish.
The last last week.. we(me and Renji of Makeupholicworld) went to meet Jyoti of ETM at her place. We had superb fun together. We also met Nids and while leaving Jyoti gifted us with these nail enamels saying they are new in the collection.
Here are they...
Avon Simply Pretty Suede Nail Enamels in Sumptuous Rose,Touch of Taupe and Fuchsia Feel.
Check my video review here
Price:
These are at 99INR or so. You can always get for cheaper prices in monthly offers.
Package:
They come in the usual simply pretty range design with the sturdy glass bottle with a pink twist cap. The brush is small but enough to give a clean finish.
