Summer Skirt Styling

Hi lovelies ❤ 
Hope you all had a lovely weekend?

You know that its getting hotter by the day, if you are from India you'll know what i am talking about!

So if you are a skirt lover and have a short height like me or have a little heavy thighs you can still wear skater skirts in summers, i'll show you in this post how i styled mine!

I'll share how i wore the same outfit from day to evening for a cool, chic summer look.

So i wore a crop Top with a skater skirt but i wore the skirt a little up, this is a hack for all my lovely ladies who don't have a complete flat stomach or don't like skin show yet like wearing Crop top and paired it along with my White sneakers, which made it look so comfortable yet chic!

So i had a casual chill day and i could carry this outfit easily while being comfortable.


Now onto the #OOTD  Outfit of the Day details-

Disney Minnie mouse Crop Top-
(around Rs1000)
Skater skirt- (around Rs 500)

Peach Sling bag- Forever21 (around Rs 1600-1800)

White Shoes (from a store in Lajpat Nagar) These are just like the Original Adidas neos which i love plus cheaper and cooler ;)

Accessories- i am wearing heart stone studs from Forever21 again and a Ring from Colaba market in bombay!

I wanted to keep my accessories very minimalistic for this look as i wanted to feel casual and it would compliment my top as it already has a lot of print on it!

So since i was going to be out and strolling in the garden for a good while & i dint want to carry much stuff. I carried all my essentials in this cute sling which i wore to bring out the element of colour in my outfit!

So in order to stay comfortable carry ur sling around your body like this so when you go for strolls or treks it doesn't move much.

For makeup details i kept my makeup natural and fresh-

These were the Eye and lip details-

Nykaa Nail Paint Enamels (My Collection)

Hi girls i will be sharing my entire Nykaa nailpaint Collection which i have collected in around a year. 
If you are a Nail paint lover like me, you'll enjoy this and it will also  help you to see the colour swatches and choose for yourself. ☺

So Nykaa as a brand first started with their Nailpaint collection. Then they expanded to nykaa Matte nailpaints, nykaa-So matte lipsticks , nykaa Eyeliners and now even nykaa crayons. 

I have reviewed the So matte lipsticks here-
Nykaa So-matte Lipstick collection

& i shall do a review for all of their products from their line.
Comment below if you would like to see them.

Now Lets begin with the collection!

Nykaa has both the type of nailpaint in their collection-

  • Normal/Glossy finish
  • Matte finish

The Nykaa glossy/normal nailpaint collection i have previously reviewed and swatched from their pastel collection, nudes collection and Pop enamel collection 

The pricing has gone up from Rs 149 to Rs 179 now.I also added one more shade in this collection.

Lemon pudding

You can check my previous nykaa normal nail enamel collection swatches here-

Nykaa NAILPAINT collection

Now lets begin with the 

They previously came out with 12 matte shades which were very subtle and classy , then further added the 6 Neon mattes and then added 12 more Winter collection mattes which are more dark/winter appropriate shades.
These all retails for Rs 199 per bottle, which is pretty affordable compared to other brands who have matte nail paints.

I have even done a in depth review post on two of the matte shades from their original collection here-
nykaa matte nailpaint review

Lets begin with the swatches!

1. Pink Meringue

Light pastel pink, perfect for summers.Adds a classy touch!

2. Lavender Panna Cotta

True lavender shades and is total love for this summer as lavender itself is so soothing and calming.

3. Cool Blue Granita

Cool hue of icy blue will calm your eyes just by looking at it.Perfect to carry it with all your beach holidays <3

4. Almond Crumble

Its a creamy beige nude shade which lets your nails do the talking.It will stand out when you wear it as it is such a unique shade, but its meant for fair- deep skin tonned beauties only,
wont suit extremely fair as it would merge with your skin tone.

5. Black Cherry Pie

This colour is so unique its a dark plum colour but gives a black hue if you put more than 2 layers.

This colour is perfect for all my beauties who love to experiment like me and be a little edgy at times! Even perfect for winter/fall!

I would range the normal matte enamels as 4.5/5-★★★★✬

Then i added two shades from their Neon matte shades-

6. Lemonade Fizz

Nykaa launched its Neon matte around Diwali in India and that is the season of bright lights and festivity so i had to try this range. I always wanted to try a neon lemon color and this one is true to its name lemonade fizz! It is again a nice neon summer color.

7. Blueberry Sorbet

Its a neon electric blue shade which is good to match it up with your evening dresses or indian wear. It will look good on all skin tones except the very deep skin tonned girls.

The neon mattes however cant be worn in a single layer, you need 2-3 coats for it to look opaque.

They have more shades in this range which you can check it out.
I would rate this 3/5 ★★★☆☆

Winter matte collection-

8. Raspberry Tart

Its a perfect matte red colour. Girls who like red nail paints but were looking for a red colour this is the one for you.It will give you christmacy vibes or perfect with your Indian wear!

9. Ruby Blaze

Lets take a moment to appreciate this colour!
This is a true Rose or Wine colour. This is one of my favourites from their matte range! This shade is again has the tendency to look black if 2 or more coats are applied.
But thats what i like about this shade, you can wear it in a single coat or build it up for a vampier look!

I rate the winter matte collection as 4.5/5 ★★★★✮

These were the mattes i had now let me take you to their Gold Rush Collection-

This collection was simply bomb dot com!

They have gorgeous 5 gold shades perfect for party and wedding season.

1. Lost in Gold

I am a lover of Rose gold ,so much so that even my iPhone is Rose gold, so you can imagine that i had to get this.It is love.

This is with one single coat,you can obviously build it up for more opaque coverage.

They retail for Rs 249 and i highly recommend trying them out!

2. Flicker Gold

"All that glitters is gold"! well atleast in this case it sure it as this one is a true gold shade from the collection.

Girls it will look so stunning with your Indian wear as it will complement all the gold work/embroideries in your outfits.
This one is even perfect for the party season.You can glam up your nails with this gorgeous gold shade.

It goes on so smooth and opaque in on
e swipe and you can layer it further for even more shine.I personally love this shade and the pictures don't do justice to both these amazing shades, you have to try them to see how it dazzles! I rate them as 5/5 ★★★★★

Nykaa Floral nailpaint collection

Just look at these gorgeous shades floral collection.These are inspired by different flowers and even named after them!
There are about 17 shades in this range and all shades are so gorgeous, inspired from different flower colours!

Nykaa claims that this range "is a superior nail lacquer with light reflecting pigments that deliver intense long lasting colour."
I couldn't agree more! This range is so creamy and opaque and initially i got two shades but i ordered two more seeing its intense creamy texture and very long lasting as well.
They retail for Rs179 

I got 4 shades-

1. Sweet Cherry Blossom

As the name suggests it resembles the colour of the cherry blossom flower found in japan , its such a unique colour of pink,it has such a nice pastel hue to it almost duo chrome in light.I recommend this colour for all skin tones! This is one of my personal favourites from this range.

2. Tuscan Lilly

It is a gorgeous peachy shade which is perfect for summer.It will go with most of your outfits and its such a classic summer colour, you can wear it with western or even indian.
It will look the best on fair skin tones, even medium skin toned beauties can also buy this but it wont suit very deep skin tones!

3. Lavender crush

This again is a very pretty lilacy pastel colour. Its such a unique colour that everyone will ask you what are you wearing and i really mean it.I was in Sephora and the sales lady saw this on my hands as i was wearing it that day and she complimented and asked for the brand.
When someone even notices your nailpaint, thats half job done ☺ totally recommend this one for all skin tones!

4. Dusky Azalea

This shade is perfect for the everyday wear or to wear with formals or meetings.Even your moms would love this shade.
This shade would compliment across age groups.It is a mauvy pink which is very much in these days.

Heres a comparison of all the shades from 4 to 1

I totally recommend these and Rate is 5/5 ★★★★★

Nykaa had now also come up with their new shades Nude matte nail enamel and they are also coming up Nykaa silk nail enamels, so if i get my hands on them i will surely swatch them here.
