The Sun Sets On My Nails NOTD, a haul and my recent wins and goodies and some rant

Pardon the lame post title. I am bad at giving names. :P To add to the list of what I am bad at, I suck at photo editing and can never understand how to use photoshop ( and I am Masters in Computer Application... ha! ), I can't sing, even in bathroom :( , I suck at drawing straight lines even using a ruler (I guess you already heard that before), I suck in GK (oopsie! can't remember the dates and names :P), I suck in....okay I better stop loathing myself and this self pity rant here and get on with today's NOTD.

As a child, when I used to go for the art classes, and were asked to draw a scenary, I loved to draw a setting sun with mix of colors and hues of reds and oranges fading into one another. And this NOTD reminds me of those days *sigh*. 


I tried Sponging Nail Art for the first time yesterday. There is a long way for me to go to get it perfect but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is really fun and I would love to do some more in the future.

Now on to my recent wins,
I won a chance (in shortlisted 4) to date Rannvijay,! \:D/ (No Kidding! Check out this contest) but I had to decline the offer since I can't go to Mumbai in three days notice. :( I wanted to win that Shuffle Ipod but had hit the jackpot.  =))

My only consolation was that I won a few more giveaways and contests *giggles*. 


I won the Purplle.com Cleopatra Eyes Contest. And I got these lovely gifts. The Faces quad in Purple was love at first sight. Thanks a lot Riddhi. :D
(P.S. Did you know Purplle.com  is the official Online Beauty partner for the movie Love Recipe? Check out their new contest!




I also won a NYX hamper from StyleCraze in their weekly draw. Be a part of their lovely community,to win many more exciting prizes.

I had also won a beautiful dress from Elle Fashionwear India sometime back. They were having a referral contest on their FB page. Sorry forgot to take a picture, but you can check it out here.

And there are a few more prizes which are still on their way ;)

Oh and here is my recent haul.


P.S. Thanks to my dear friend Renji for the sweet gift *hugs*.
And a huge thank you to all of you for reading my blog, encouraging and motivating me. Those little increasing numbers on the sidebar makes my heart do some *jiggy dance* :D Thanks for all the support. Love ya all :-*
