Miss Claire Crackle Nail Paint - Preview

I'm sorry I haven't been posting recently. I just came back from a holiday & as usual there was a truck load pile of work waiting for me in office. Plus my lappie is still defunct. As a result I'm not really in touch completely with other blogs & I am really missing that.

Crackle nail paint has been a real craze in recent times. Colorbar has launched a black & white version but it is priced at a hefty 500 bucks.

If you have been eyeing crackle nail paints but don't wanna shell out too much dough in these times of Greek debt & impending recession, I've got news for you.

Miss Claire has launched their crackle nail paint in about 10 colors. I had gone shopping today & I picked up silver, golden, emerald green, black & white (not in pic). They also have hot pink, red, maroon, blue & dark green from what I remember. I'm most probably get those depending on how well the Five I got perform.

Miss Claire is some Korean brand I think, coz the bottles say "Made in Korea". I have seen their stuff at Alfa, I once got a pink lipgloss from their range which was really nice, but I haven't tried anything much.

Please don't mind the swatches in the pic above. I was wearing Jordana nail paint in Blackberry, which is a deep berry shade. I was a little sceptical that these nail paints would actually crackle so I asked the sales guy to let me test them. He applied these, so it isn't the neatest application. But this pic is just to show you that these indeed do crackle.

Now here is the best part. These cute babies cost only 150 bucks at Khar Beauty Centre. Since I bought 5, I bargained a bit more & paid 140 per bottle of 15 ml.

These are also available at Alfa - 2 in Irla, but they sell it for 180 & seemed to have a slightly limited stock.

I'm very excited about these nail paints & will try them out in the coming days.

Have you tried either Miss. Claire or any other brand's crackle nail paints? Did you like them?

  15. They seem really fun things to try out..can't wait!! :)
    great find!!! :D

  16. OMG! This is crazy! I just bought the one in black yesterday to test it out! I was also skeptical about whether they'd crack or not, so i just bought one. If only I'd checked your blog earlier I would have bought the silver and purple ones too! Hehe~
    I have a question, though. I don't know if it's only the black crackle polish i bought or what but, when it dries, it turns to matte grey. Then only if a put a top coat, it becomes black again. Did that happen to yours too?

  17. OOH...150?! I'd buy one in a heartbeat! The emerald green one looks fab

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…
