Maybelline ColorShow Glitter Mania in Pink Champagne (607): Review & Swatches

Glitter nail paints are my favorite kind of nail paints. They look really glam, stay on long & oddly enough, if you choose the correct shade - are very office appropriate!

Maybelline recently launched their Glitter Mania nail paints with about 7 shades roughly. Priced at Rs. 120/- for 6ml, this range is a new launch.

There isn't much information on the bottle about the product so let's just dive into the review!

What I liked: 

1. The color! It is a pretty silver with a tinge of pink. In the evening it appears silver, but the pink in it gives it a beautiful rosy sheen that makes it look different from regular silver glitter nail paints. I also think it seems to make the color a lot more wearable than a plain silver which can be too cool for Indian skintones. Another thing about this particular shade is that is actually a very neutral shade and works beautifully for office. While overloaded with glitter, it looks classy enough and the color is neutral enough for office. It will look beautiful but not attract weird attention like a orange or blue nail paint might.


2. The product has a usage date of 36 months from expiry... which is a very long while. I am pretty sure the nail paint would have dried up by then tbh.

3. It is priced decently at 125/- and the brush itself is decent and picks up optimum quantity of glitter.

4. The product formulation itself is pretty good. The glitter is dense enough to get complete coverage in a single coat, although I prefer two coats for the *bling*, it dries quickly (like 5 minutes max) plus the gritty, glittery texture means that even if you are a clutz like me and screw things up by introducing air bubbles or fingerprints - this nail paint won't show it! Messy application? Bring it on!

5. Like all glitter nail paints, it stays on for a good 4-5 days without any sort of top coat.

 What could be better:

1. Information about ingredients. At 125 bucks, I don't expect this to be the Big 3 free, but to provide no information at all about what the heck it contains is a little disturbing.

2. Packaging: The bottle is not sealed when sold. Psychologically I don't like products that aren't sealed because it just makes me feel like I am buying a product that could have been used.

3. Like all glitter nail paints, this is a b*tch to take off and it will leave your nails wrecked.

Overall: I love this shade - Pink Champagne and recommend this if you love glitter nail paints. 

It is a lovely color and is neutral enough to match both Indian & Western outfits and also looks lovely for office. I use this on short nails, as I personally don't like how glitter nail paint looks on long nails. As you can see from the images above, I am a messy applicator and I like that this nail paint doesn't require me to be precise.

The price is good and did I mention how beautiful the color is?

  3. Looks like the sally hansen pink glitter one (I forget the name). I absolutely loved it (got it with my pedicure one time) but taking it off sucked so much that I didn't bother to ask for it again.

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.



Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.


For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
