Birthday Haul!!!

Of course what follows a birthday mani is Birthday haul!

However this was an unplanned haul..somethings had been ordered waaay back in Jan. Some in Feb, some March and soo on. One package from Llarowe got lost on its way to India (I blame customs..someone somewhere is enjoying holo polishes without knowing their importance!!!), and Leah generously agreed to replace that order which I promptly sent to a cousin visiting US.
As luck had it, my red angel plates got delayed and I had to file a complaint with USPS coz they couldnt locate where my parcel went  x_x
The OB-QA plates arrived without any misery (I have a few extra sets if anyone within India wants to buy). And my cousin got me Maybelline's eye tattoo in Pomegranate Punk!!! 
And all this arrived just in time for my birthday!!! :D
Have fun ogling! swatches to follow soon.

    will wait for your reviews ..

    1. Oh Rashmi!!! Ur comments always make me smile/laugh without fail.
      U start by doing very small or sober nail art..then u'll get into it. try doing polka dots or colourful french tips first.
      Usually I m too lazy to do tutorials..but I'd like to do for u.
      Tell me what you want me to do..I dont have all the nail polish available in India. Gimme a few brands.. and Q: what do u mean worth investing for mani? you mean for stamping?? or just any type of nail art?

    2. when somebody says "rash you are too funny / or you make me laugh /smile " ahhhhhh i feel soooooo happy :D :D ... i only return what i get :D :D

      thank you so much kejal for the tut. in advance ...
      right now toh i am actually zero , but i do want to try out mani with some basic things ..
      i have bourjois , colorbar , colorma , revlon and some very basic nail paints , so i wanted to know , are they good enough or do i need some special nail paints ? like extra thin or thick ?? like i have seen the texture and finish also differs ... so shall i buy new ones or the old ones will do ?? i have some coloroma matte ones ( if they are called matte ?? )

      when and how you started your journey ? i would love to know that and how you progressed to this kind of mani ??

      am eagerly waiting for your tut dear :D

    1. hey Amrin.. Nice blog u got.
      Most polishes don work as stamping..they r either too runny or too transparent. Usually one coat polishes work well.
      Hey cool! do show me ur UT haul :)

  10. Uh-mazing haul! I'm so tempted to snag some stamping plates and try out some nail art, do I need some special kind of thicker polish for stamping or will regular polishes work?
