Viviana Magic InkLiner Review on GrheatArt

*Hi! I have moved to a new blog, GrheatArt*

I've just posted my first review on my new blog, on the Magic InkLiner by Viviana. Click here to read it.

The Chain Nail is moving to a new blog!

Hello to everyone who has stuck around, even after I stopped blogging. I have decided to return to the blogosphere. But I need a fresh start, so I'm moving to a new blog: GrheatArt. My new blog will not be limited to nail paints and nail art. Rather, I'll be blogging about beauty, makeup and fashion. So please go check out GrheatArt! I am going to start posting regularly very soon.


Red French

This post comes after a hiatus of over an year. Am I back to posting regularly? Probably not. But here goes.
Yesterday I was in the mood for something simple and elegant on my nails. I painted the base with a sheer nude polish from W7 and free-handed the red French tips using Revlon Red Hot Tamale. I've recently rediscovered this polish. It had been lying unused in my stash for so long; I had forgotten how amazing it is for nail art.

 The manicure looked good enough with just the tips, but a little extra couldn't hurt. So I added cute little flowers with Red Hot Tamale & Orly-Gumdrop(in the centre of the flowers). I think I will keep this manicure on for quite a while. One of the reasons is because it looks so simple and pretty. But it's mostly because I don't do my nails that often anymore, so I might as well make the most of it.


I've added some more stuff to my Etsy shop, GrheatArt. My prices are flexible, so if you see something you like and want to make an offer, let me know in the comments :) 

Purple Geometry (SOLD) 

Wonder (SOLD)


Finally, my Etsy Shop!

I have finally opened up my Etsy shop! I will keep adding more paintings as and when I complete them. Please go and have a look, you might find something you like :) And spread the word to anyone who you think might be interested. Here's the link: GrheatArt
