Maybelline Color Show and Glitter Mania Nail Color Review


            I love it when I get the right color which lasts and doesn’t chip the next day. Maybelline Nail color is just perfect. I have been using a range of brands till now but nothing seemed to gain my loyalty until Maybelline Glitter Mania came about. I fell in love with it immediately and soon started adoring the Color Show range.

            Their site says that there are 40 different shades but whenever I have gone to a store they never seem to have the entire range. It has a gel based formula for increased staying power. It is also chip resistant and comes with an easy flow brush.  Price – Rs. 85/- although their site says that it’s for 75/-

            Glitter Mania is an absolute delight. It’s not the normal glitter nail paint which sometimes does look a bit tacky. It gives a unique sand-textured effect that looks and feels great on your nails. They have 8 glittering colors. Price – Rs. 125/-
           
            I have Hooked on Pink – 212, Nude Skin – 015, Burnished Gold – 707, Wine and Dine – 005. I love all of them!



Hooked on Pink is this bright pink color to add a pop of color to your everyday routine. I am not a very pink nail pain kinda girl but this one just made me what to buy it.

            Nude Skin is my favorite! It is exactly what its name suggests, very nude and neutral. This gives a very elegant look and is just perfect if you want to keep it simple yet stylish.

                        Burnished Gold this is perfect for a party or when you want to add a little bit of glamour to your outfit.

            Wine and Dine is like those old school nail colors which we all still love.



           
            I also had Glitter Mania – Starry Nights 603, but yesterday when I was taking pictures I dropped it and it broke L. I love the texture and the sparkle.



I can't wait to try on the other shades!

Fear of the Unknown

            It was just another day, a friend and I met for dinner and then decided to go for a drive. We had experienced a very spooky incident during our college’s Industrial Visit. The topic got our fancy and we started discussing that.  A girl got possessed and she had got out of control, it was after we called the local priest that she was back to normal.

            During our last day there, she suddenly became very aloof and went to a junior and said that she is going to murder her roommate that night. The junior obviously in the fun mood didn’t pay much attention to her. After sometime back into the room she went into the bathroom and didn’t come out for a long time, her roommates, worried barged into the bathroom only to find her banging her head on the wall and with blood on her forehead. They freaked out and rushed to call other people.

            The girl was speaking in several voices and constantly threatening to kill whoever touches her. Around 8-10 guys were trying to pin her down on the bed just so she doesn’t harm herself or anyone else but she suddenly had surprising power to over throw all of them.

            I know this sounds something straight out of a movie. It took some of us a while to understand what was exactly happening. It was after she started speaking in different voices and saying that she is going to kill everyone that we realized it was something that none of us had experienced before. She once even ran and tried to jump of the 2nd floor.

            Not knowing what to do, everyone just tried to keep her pinned on the bed until the priest came. He did something and she then fell asleep.

            Thinking about it sent chills down our spine. It was something that you watch in movies, it is something that you hear from friends whose friend’s friend had experienced something like this. It is definitely not something that you wish to experience in real life. In between these talks we realized that they were on an unknown road. There was nothing around us just a straight narrow road ahead without any street lights.

            I have always been very scared of all these things. Although I am not a very religious person but I do believe that there is some power which is beyond our understanding and that  we should take it seriously. I have watched just one horror movie i.e. Paranormal Activity 4, that too because my friends tricked me into watching it. I sleep with lights on whenever I am home alone. Ghost stories fancy me but the time which follows after that scares the crap out of me.

            Suddenly on that unknown road I started to freak out. I took out Google maps but there was no network. I immediately regretted talking about the ghost topic as now that was all I could think of. My friend however just kept driving, we passed a cemetery and I immediately took it as a bad sign.

“Shh… chill I am sure we just took one wrong turn. Nothing is going to happen” he said
“Just get us out of here, it is very spooky here” I told him
“Are you in for a little adventure? Let’s get you to face your fear”

He said that and took a turn next to the cemetery.  All those creepy and scary stories started crossing my mind, I started imagining every possible situation that could go wrong.

Suddenly out of nowhere, straight ahead we saw a small bench. It looked like a fishermen’s colony only that we couldn’t spot any other human. We could see the sea. It was like we were on a movie set.

He parked the car and asked to wait there for a while.
“NO”
“Yes, that’s how you get over your fear. Trust me you are not going to spot any ghost here.” he said and gave me a hand.

I unwillingly got out of the car and we sat on the bench in complete silence. Nothing scary happened.

I realized that all of it was in my head. I won’t say that I am completely over my fear but I have definitely come to the conclusion that something good shall follow.

Happily Unmarried Haul

I had checked out their site lots of time but never bought anything fearing the quality etc. 

They recently opened their shop 5 minutes away from my house and I have become a fan already. It is generally so difficult to pick a gift for guys but this shop has solved that problem.


They have a wonderful collection and some quirky things as well. I am listing down couple of things I have bought in last 2 months you can find these here - http://www.happilyunmarried.com/ or you can visit the shop.

I got this for a friend on his birthday. I didn’t know what to get him but when I saw these dice I knew it was just the right thing to get. Generally we are always lost about what to do; making plans has always been difficult for us. This should solve that problem!





I love Mumbai and all the quirks that come with it. I couldn’t really get myself to use these post its because I fear ill use them all up. It’s a good feeling knowing that they are there.


Everyone needs a daily Superhero dose.



MILF mug. Before you start getting ideas it says Men In Love with Football.



I was eyeing this one for a long time for a friend who is obsessed with movies.



To- do lists. Bought this for a friend who excels at procrastination.


And this one if for me :D Raj Kapoor fan has to have this!




And just because I have mentioned Awaara Hoon, here is a video of that song! <3 o:p="">
