Euphoria- Calvin Klein

I have always been a huge fan of Calvin Klein, be it there perfumes or shades or clothing line. Recently, my big brother gifted me a Calvin Klein's Euphoria (women). The one and only thing i felt while trying it out for the first time is, "This is me." It seemed to me as if the fragrance has been hand picked for me. Before this I was using  Elizabeth Arden's 5th Avenue. Well i must confess that after using Euphoria i just do not seem to like any other fragrance. It is light and subtle (not at all harsh). As i said earlier, I feel like as if it is custom made for me.

So, if you are obsessed with good perfumes and fragrance as I am, and wish to spend a little bit more to smell good, this is my pick for you. Sure it is a little pricey, but it is worth every penny.

Price of Calvin Klein- Euphoria (women) 100 ml is Rs. 4800 (inclusive all tax)
Price of Calvin Klein -Euphoria (women) 50 ml is Rs. 3825 (inclusive all tax)

Price of Elizabeth Arden - 5th Avenue is Rs 1750 in India.
 For those who do not want to buy a CK because of its price, i would recommend Elizabeth Arden. It is comparatively wallet friendly and the fragrance is also pretty good.

So guys, do tell me if you liked my post. And as i always say, if you have any queries or feed back or comments, feel free to ask me.

Have fun with Fashion,

Perfect French Manicure.....

Today i am going to do a tutorial on how to do a perfect French manicure. So without further delay lets start with it....

All you need to do is buy a French Manicure kit from any store. I personally do not buy the 'kit'. I just buy the colors separately. But for beginners a kit is needed. 

In a kit you will find three nail polishes : one white, one almost like the skin tone, one crystal clear top coat and last but not the least stickers ( used to paint the nail tips properly)

Now let us get quickly onto the tutorial. It comprises of only four simple steps. So, here we go :-

STEP 1 :-  Apply the skin tone nail polish as the base coat. Let it dry for a few minutes.
STEP 2 :- Apply the white nail polish carefully along the portion of your 'extended' nails. If you do not have steady hands then you can use the stickers. I personally use the stickers because i do not have steady hands. So, if you are using stickers, the thumb rule is, let the polish dry up properly and then peel off the sticker. DO NOT remove it until the nail polish dries off.
STEP 3 :- Take a second look at your nails. Check whether all the tips are equally white. If not then paint the ones which are not equally white to make them all even. Else it will not look good. Let it dry for a good 5 minutes. 
STEP 4 :- Finally when the polish dries off, use the top coat ( the crystal clear one) to give it the perfect finish.

And that is how you can do a perfect French manicure in your house all by your self.
So do try it out and let me know. And if you have any suggestion, queries or anything just let me know, and i will get back to you immediately. 

Have fun with fashion,

Fashionably yours,
