Newspaper Nail Art

I saw this really cool Nail Art called Newspaper Nail art. It looks really nice as it seems like someone wrote all over your nails in a really neat font.

I'm planning to try this out once at least, I only need to get me some grey nail paint first. Any suggestions for a pale grey?

You can watch the video below by Cute Polish on how to do this:

Have you tried this nail art? Any tips on how to get it right?


  1. I don't think you necessarily need a pale grey, any light base would do I guess..

  2. looks cool and unique. thanks for sharing

  3. Super cool this one..thanks for sharing Tanveer....i am trying it roght away...i dont have a light grey i will use my french polish in light pinkish beige..thanks again

  4. simple n easy..thanks for sharing tanveer..i m getting addicted to this blog

  5. Thanks for sharing this, super simple & looks chic. In fact if you want to try this look,how about replacing the grey base & using a nail base is shade similar to Economic Times paper color (Like Yucatan If U Want OPI Nail Polish C23) and making this absolutely Office friendly! LOL. Seriously this is too cool. I wana try this :)

  6. looks very different n innovative :))

    Thanks for sharing Tanveer

  10. i really wanna try this one too..

    maybe this week i will :)

  11. dis is niceee..different..

  12. you just need a white color as base coat..the newspaper makes it lil bit greyish...i have tried this and it was frnds wer like 'omg how did u do that???' :))
    nd tips:give uniform pressure to the whole nail while pressing the paper strips..sometimes it can happen that the font will get lighter on the sides then it wont look good..Practice makes u just wipe off and try again if u r nt satisfied...

  13. wow..its so different !!!!! i love nail art

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…
