Streetwear 01 Black Divine Nail Enamel - Review, Swatches

In sunlight
What it claims: Gives a dazzling shine to your nails. Shake gently apply 2 coats.

Cost: Errr... I forgot, coz I ripped off the tag the moment I reached home to apply it & I have had this with me for 3 months now. I think it was some 70 odd Rs. for 9 ml bottle.

What I liked: 

1. The shade - a lovely gunmetal grey black with lots of shine & silvery shimmer. It is the perfect way for dark nails without the gothic overtones of black & deary undertones of grey. Plus the shimmer is very fine, and not gritty at all.

2. Lasting power - this thing with just two coats lasted a whole 5 days on my nails without chipping - & this is with no top coat. This is the longest any nail paint has lasted on my nails

3. Very shiny finish. (I don't like matt nail paints - I tend to add a top coat at times just to make my nails look super shiny)

With Flash
What could be better:

1. This ain't the big 3 free.

Will I repurchase this: For sure, this is a very good way for me to wear a black shade to office. I love the color, the shine, the finish. It is a very unique color, it's dark but not goth.

  1. looks like metallic grey na...I have noticed that grey nail paints suit most and this looks fab on you.

  2. Hey....

    Streetwear is sadly an under estimated brand in India..Ateleast their nail colours require some attention I feel..Even I have a few shades and they lasted well on my nails..

    This is a good shade Tanveer...Will check it out next time :-)

  3. I'm not usually a fan of such colours (prefer the gold-bronze metallics), but you're right-- it's good for office. :-)

  4. Looks v cool....n the lasting power seems gr8 too!!
    nice post!!

  5. Very nice and chic tanveer :)

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…
