Hey everyone, hope you all had an amazing Diwali! Today I'm reviewing a couple of Lotus herbal Products that they sent me as a Diwali gift.
I received A MoistPetals lip color in Red Rover(112). I love the packaging, it's really pretty and eye-catching. The lip colour was moderately pigmented and went on smoothly. I like that it's not too pigmented, so it's possible to have just a soft colour with a light-handed swipe. Red Rover is a warm red, with golden shimmer. You can enlarge the pics to see the shimmer. Perfect for the festive season!
I also received a Seduction Lip Gloss in Lychee Squash(40). The quality of the gloss is decent, but I don't like the colour. Too frosty!!! I definitely want to try the other shades though, because as I just said, the gloss itself isn't bad.
Here is by itself & over Red Rover.
(Over Red Rover) Pretty, isn't it? :)

There are already loads of versions of the half-moon manicure all over the blogosphere. But I decided to show you mine anyways :) The half-moon mani has been around for almost a century. In the 1920's, the nail was painted, while leaving a half moon unpainted near the base. However, now, the half moon is commonly painted white, or with other colours. I also added added dots around the moon because, well...I wanted to :P
Catrice- London's Weather Forecast is a slightly blue-leaning grey with subtle shimmer. I had a bit of a problem with application as the polish was kinda thick and goopy, but nothing that a few drops of thinner cannot fix. The Catrice brush is flat and really easy to work with. I hardly ever need to clean up with Catrice polishes :)
The colour is chic and elegant without being boring. I really love the colour in the bottle, but I'm not sure if it works with my skintone :L
Here is London's Weather Forecast topped off with a Maybeline multi-coloured sparkle. I couldn't find any name on the bottle.
French manicures in crazy colour combinations are a great option when you are short of time, but don't want to go with plain ol' polish. Today, I used a stunning sapphire blue shimmer as the base and added French tips using my Glitter Gal- black holo. I think it looks gorgeous, and it hardly took me fifteen minutes to do :)
Manicures with rhinestones are not something that one can do everyday. They require a lot of care; the rhinestones fall off easily if one isn't careful. But I love a little bling occasionally! Here is what I came up with, using the rhinestones from Born Pretty. I did not use topcoat in this manicure because the stones lose their depth and sparkle when covered with topcoat. However, it's better to use topcoat if you want your manicure to last longer.
I noticed that most of the manicures I had been doing recently were spring themed. So I've decided to do ones more appropriate for fall :) I painted my nails with Orly Enchanted Forest & randomly added dots to the tips with my Born Pretty acrylic paints.
BTW, I'm going to try & post more regularly from now on. It's not that I don't get time, it's just that I follow so many amazing blogs. So whenever I come online, I end up spending my time looking at swatches on other blogs :P There are so many collections coming out & I'm really lemming a number of polishes. But with the ridiculous shipping prices at etailers, I don't think I can order any right now :L
This is a Skittle French manicure that I did a while ago. Sometimes I just sit down with my polishes, with no idea of what I'm gonna be doing. And I usually end up with a random design which is simple, but eye-catching. Just like this one :) There's nothing much to this design. All you have to do is pick out a neutral base, and paint the tips with vibrant colours, a different one on each nail.
