Makeover Move

ME: "I am not a girly girl!"

MY BROTHER: "Hehe no way, you are girly, very girly!"

What?! Did I really hear that? I am girly?! All these days I was thinking that I am not a girly girl.. girly girls treat a broken nail as an emergency, whine all night if their eye-brow job had gone bad, shut themselves up in their rooms if they have a bad-hair day and get mad if their clothes/hands get dirty! And on top of it I don't giggle but laugh, I like a hearty laugh. Ok, I'm getting diverted now.. back on track!

But then I am girly in some ways, I love anything that is pink, fluffy, floral, and cute! I enjoy shopping, get super excited if I see the words "SALE" and "FREE". Read fashion magazines cover to cover, browse the internet for tips. Go around the house like a ghost with a facial mask of a different color and flavor(!) every weekend.

So all that reading magazines and surfing the internet had motivated me to get a new-look! I decided that I w…

Manmadhan Ambu - A Late Review

A good try by Kamal Hassan. Even if not spectacular it isn't that bad!

Loved the casting. As usual Kamal steals the show, Sangeetha and Madhavan have done a good job. Trisha looks so polished in the movie! She can confidently dub for her roles from now on.

A flock of birds fly across the sky, Kamal looks at them and that tiny tear in the eye! Perfect!

Sangeetha!! Wow!! She is too good, really really good. And all those spoonerisms.. haha.. but sadly not many catch it.. well, thats typical in Kamal movies. The kid bodyguard is sooo cute!

Missed the Kamal Kavidhai a lot. Since the song is gone, we miss the moment the hero and the heroine fall in love.

May be if the movie was shortened into an hour and a half without some sentiments and songs it would have been more fast paced.

P.S: I am a Kamal Hassan fan. So if you think the review is biased, sure it is :) :) :)

Zebra Nails!

This is something I have been wanting to try for a long time. I love nail art, and unfortunately I am no artist. But anybody can do lines!

This is how I did it:

1) Two coats of silver-white nail polish.

2) I do not own black polish so I used my eye-liner to draw the black lines. Generally eye-liner is water soluble. To prevent that I finished with a transparent top-coat over nails.

3) The black lines have to be drawn with a thin brush. Take care while drawing it.

4) Dont worry if you cant get the lines straight, zebra's dont have straight lines :D

5) Apply the top coat carefully and slowly. Dont apply pressure on the brush, if you do the eye-liner will chip.

6) Nail polish takes a lot of time to dry, 2 to 3 hours actually. Be careful.

7) Do not worry if you cant apply nail polish without applying some on the skin around it. That is not a problem to sweat over. Take bath, it's gone and the nails are perfect! :D

Happy Coloring! Do post your experience, difficulties, criticisms an…
