Jordana Nail Paint in Silver Glitter

It claims: 
Jordana #208 Silver Glitter Nail Polish
• Neons, Shimmers, Glitters & Cremes 
• Bold, Fashionable, Spectacular Color Range 
• Contains Natural Pearl for Improved Application, Wearability & Luster 
• Salon Formula 
• Made In USA


Price: Rs. 169 for 15 ml bottle (I got a 20% off on this from New Beauty Centre)

What I liked: 

1. I bought this nail paint a little before Karwa Chauth as it seemed like a very festive color. And it is! Because it is silver, it is pretty much neutral and goes well with a lot of desi dresses. But it also really jazzes up a simple top & jeans. The glitter shimmers and sparkles so beautifully and doesn't lose sheen over days.

2. Lasts pretty long. It stayed on my nails without dulling or chipping for 4 days. Also it didn't pick up colors from food (sometimes pale nail paints tend to get stained by haldi while cooking / eating - this one didn't.)

3. Cheap, and the Big 3 free!


What could be better: 

1. Taking this off is a big, big pain. It won't come off with acetone. In fact the acetone merely removes the transparent bits of nail polish leaving the glittered adhered even more strongly to the nail. I often have to peel this off to remove it. Or else dunk my finger tips in acetone for 2-3 minutes before it starts to loosen up. 

2. While the glitters are present abundantly in the paint, a single coat will give you spartan application. In the images here I have 3-4 heavy coats of the nail paint. 

3. Availability of Jordana is a bit of an issue.

Would I re-purchase: I absolutely love these glitter nail paints. They are priced decently, the quality is good. I would definitely pick up a few more different colors, provided I can find them :-p

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 …

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…
