TREND TROTTING THURSDAY- NAIL ART

Happy Thursday Lovelies !

Trend trotting Thursday is back again with another trending topic- NAIL ART !

Today Pooja from a dash of style with a sweet smile and I have teamed together to bring to your feed, not one but two different summer nail arts. I had met Pooja  at one of the DMV blogger events and I have to admit that this girl has a penchant for everything stylish, be it clothes, shoes, accessories with nails following . Her fondness for colors and fabulous nails, show well through in her weekly series, which she likes to call Mani Monday
The ' watermelon ' nails that Pooja has in store for us today is easy, summer-perfect and pretty rad. Do check out her blog for more nail art inspirations. 
Unlike Pooja's tutorial, my ' butterfly '  nail tutorial  is tad bit lengthy, involves a few steps and uses a few tools as well.  If you remember this post, I had some nail pieces left from the pack that I've used for today's at-home-mani. 

So keep scrolling for the fun stuff.....  







For the watermelon nails Pooja used :- 1) Essie 'watermelon' 
                                                           2) Sally Hansen 'green with envy'
                                                           3) a black and white polish. 




For the butterfly nails you need 6 color polishes, feel free to use any coordinating color mix.  
I used 1) H&M  'blue my mind'
           2) Essie ' where's my chauffeur
           3) NY&C  'peony petals
           4) Essie  ' lilacism
           5) NY&C ' darkness
           6) Essie ' no place like chrome

In addition you would also need a fine tip nail art brush, a polka dot nail pen and some food plastic wrap. 



Hope you enjoyed the nail art tutorials today! If there is any other trend that you would like to see here, feel free to drop a line about it in the comment section below. Also if you would like to co-host, shoot me an email at myriadmusings1@gmail.com .


Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS - PEPLUM



Follow on Bloglovin


The peplum trend has reigned the fashion scene for a while now, but it's my second time around wearing this trend on the blog, this one being the first time.  It's not that I was reluctant to embracing this trend, but not being able to find the right piece especially a peplum top, kept me at bay. But when I spotted this one in the store and the way it draped on me, I was ready to welcome it home......even at the cost of paying full price !










I'M WEARING 

peplum top- H&M ( buy same, another option from H&M ( on sale now ) , a sleeveless option
skirt- Forever 21 ( last seen here ), similar option
pumps- BCBG, similar from Max Azria 
turquoise gold earrings- From Indialook-a-likemore color options










Congratulations to Asta , she is the featured blogger of the week. Do stop by her blog to say hello !





That is my story of the peplum top, now it's your turn to show/share what you got !








Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Monday Lovelies !
Good to see you all !
I have had one heck of a busy weekend, so today is my day  to relax and make this Monday feel more  like Saturday. Glad Ribhya is done with most of her classes....this gives me more blog-time in the morning. 
So as I recuperate from my weekend's mayhem, I 'll leave you with this casual, what-to-wear-to-your-dermatologist-outfit.  I wore this outfit to meet my dermatologist for a new facial treatment I am considering. Well I actually ended up getting the first session done, and I have all good intentions of sharing my experience of that facial treatment here on the blog soon. Stay tuned......!
On a different note this Michael Kors bag I am carrying is now sold. One of my readers humbly offered to buy it and rest is history.  So this might be the last time you guys might be seeing this bag on the blog. But don't you worry, I have had this soon-to-happen closet gap filled in with  this cutie ....thanks to my proactive shopping habits......LOL !







I'M WEARING
