Independence Day | Nail Art Fever

I really really really hate missing out on this, but due to certain reasons I couldn’t be a part of the Independence Day Nail Art Fever that has seemingly taken over the entire female population of Pakistan this time around. Hehe, just kidding.

But. I haven’t been sitting idle! I’ve kept my ever-so-watchful eye on all the brands that are propagating this trend. Yes you, I’m watching you!

And the top 4 takers are Maybelline New York – PakistanColor Studio – PakistanL’Oréal Paris – Pakistan,  Essie Nail Polish Pakistan. Have a look:

NOTD – Chanel Le Vernis in Taboo

I’m doing NOTD after such a looong time and it feels so good because I’ve got something special in store for today! I’m wearing Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Taboo 583 which is a deep purple iridescent nail enamel with red undertones that shimmer violet and coppery red.

I’m so mesmerized by this one that I could look at the dancing shimmers for hours! Chanel nail colous are exactly what you expect from a high-end brand; luxurious and flawless. A friend of mine got this for me saying the shade name “Taboo” goes well with me, and I can’t say I disagree. 😛

The Great Salon Deception: Farah Hussain’s Ladies Salon

By HAYAA KHURSHID

Hey girls. So, everybody loves going to the spa right? This blogger certainly has spa-ing in her top five most favourite ways to pass the time, along with shopping and chilling with my besties and boo. Anyway, because of this and thanks to a very generous mum, I’ve had the luxury of sampling the best spas and salons that Karachi and Lahore have to offer.

Sometimes I leave the spa feeling like I had spent the day in heaven, with no remorse about the odd 4-10k spent on salon and spa treatments. That is because a good spa experience is supposed to leave you rejuvenated and refreshed, not to mention looking gorgeous and smelling divine.

Blogging has other perks. Because I spend a lot of my time on the internet, I managed to sample a lot of deals that come on these, “Oh, I don’t believe we can get so much in so little’ packages on sites like www.dealstoday.pk and others of its kind.

The Deal:

I was salon scouting a week ago, and I came across “Farah Hussain’s Salon” on www.dealstoday.pk. The deal seemed unbelievably awesome. A whitening facial, or haircut, along with protein hair treatment, an OPI manicure/pedicure along with a face polish and blow-dry, all for Rs. 1200. Amazing right? I jumped on the opportunity, because the same services at my pet spa, Roohi’s would have cost me three quarters of what I used to earn before I was a broke college student. Continue reading

NOTD – Tangerine Tango: The Color of 2012 using Femina Nail Color

Tangerine Tango has been deemed the color for 2012, so I decided to paint my nails the same today. I used shade F-1319 by Femina Nail Colors.

The color of 2012 is a citrus-red hue that will give your weary eyes a break from all of those neutrals. Tangerine Tango, Pantone’s 2012 color of the year, was selected because, “there’s the element of encouragement with orange, it’s building on the ideas of courage and action, that we want to move on to better things. I think it would be a disservice to go with a relaxed, soothing color now,” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. Continue reading
