How I Got 4 MyGlamm Gel Finish Nail Polishes For Rs 45 Each!

Does the title of this post sound crazy? Well wait till you hear about how I snagged this awesome deal.

If you are following my posts on Instagram you would know that I was eyeing to get my hands on the MyGlamm Two-of-your-kind polish duos. And in the October anniversary edition of MyEnvyBox I got a MyGlamm voucher worth Rs 500. So this is where the craziness started.

How I Got 4 MyGlamm Gel Finish Nail Polishes For Rs 45 Each!

I say craziness because I myself couldn't believe that a polish duo costing Rs 390 on MyGlamm would end up costing me only Rs 90! Yes that is true, and I really wanted to share my excitement with you all. If you've got yourself the October box then great, if not see if you can still get your hands on one simply for the Rs 500 voucher it contains. You can check out myenvybox.com and see if the anniversary box is still available.

For those of you who have that voucher - read on!

Unboxed: My Envy Box - Anniversary Special October 2017

October is My Envy Box's anniversary month. They came out with a black box this time - very classy - and full of quite a few interesting skin care products. And scroll to the end to find out what is the total value of this month's box (after all we need to make sure we get value for our money!)

Unboxed: My Envy Box - Anniversary Special October 2017

The first product that I noticed when I opened the box was the KinGirls Macarons.

KinGirls Macarons are face masks that come in such luxurious looking circular packets. Each face mask is priced at Rs 520. Quite a high price for a sheet mask but these are said to contain special extracts to really make a difference to your skin. Haven't tried them but find them quite interesting. There are two masks in the box - Truffle and Cocoa 3D Face Mask, and Raspberry Extract Invisible Face Mask.

Oriflame Skin Pro Cleansing System Review

Getting a good cleanup of your skin really makes a difference. I was earlier using the handheld facial cleansing brush from Twowoo - it worked well but required a manual operation. Recently I upgraded to the Skin Pro Cleansing System from Oriflame.

Oriflame Skin Pro Cleansing System Review

The Skin Pro cleaning system is a motorized brush that aims to clean your face with gentle strokes leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth while leaving it squeeky clean.

The gadget comes in a box with batteries, a stand and a travel pouch. There is one brush head already attached to the device and extra brush heads can be purchased seperately.

Step By Step Frog Nail Art Tutorial

Today's post is a cute little nail art tutorial done by Vriddhi who is an amazing nail artist. Her choice of patterns and color combinations is always beautiful.

Let's get started and learn how to draw a frog on your nails!

Step By Step Frog Nail Art Tutorial

Things you will need:
Products Needed for frog nail art

1. Base Coat [used Luron base coat]
2. Nail polish - soft brown (or whatever background you choose for your frog) [used Luron nail polish, tips & toes 111]
3. Acrylic Paint (if you don't have acrylic paint, you can use nail polish mixed with a little acetone to thin it out)
4. Top Coat
5. Dotting tool (you can use the back of a toothpick if you don't have these)
6. Nail art brush (you can use a 0 number paint brush if you don't have a nail art brush)
Optional: Cuticle oil, quick dry top coat

Apply base coat to keep your nails looking healthy and to protect them from any chemicals in your nail polish. Base coat also helps your nail polish/nail art stay longer.

Step 1. We will create the silhouette of the frog's body
