Just In Time for Summer

While our city has been swallowed by financial troubles, and demonization has become a legit excuse for not indulging in fashion at the moment, the Indian fashion movement has a very low key vibe unless things take off fully after another season of Amazon India fashion week scheduled to happen in March.

Today I am going to emphasize a little more on the traditional rather than the modern , and after the mainstream use and strangulation of the word FUSION, I think we should open a poll on what should we call this form of dressing  ? From subtle fusion , to horrendous fusion, my few grey hair have seen it all . And since we are doing this poll, maybe think about a new term for " FASHION BLOGGER " too ?
Blogging industry needs so many new names . Five years before, it was a different charm to explain to someone what you do , exchanging cards, telling them how blogging is the new age of fashion.
Now even my neighborhood DHOBI knows about fashion bloggers . " Kal hee madam aayi thee photographer ke saath !! Boli main fashion blogger hoon , aapke yahan photo lena hai "
Clearly the Fashion blogger wind has reached places , and the bloggers have left the stable and are running wild down the road influencing as per their own capabilities/incapabilities

Why are Medical or legal/financial services blogs not mushrooming like the fashion or lifestyle blog? The answer is a no brainer, coz neither you require a professional degree nor a formal education of the subject,nor ownership of a requisite number of dresses/accessories/footwear.And the best is that you need not even have the vague sense of fashion styling or even dressing up. It adds to your snob value if you do not possess writing skills.It really takes talent to misspell words and rephrase( make a hash ) idioms as per ones personal sensibility or translation skills (from Hindi to English ).Well, no one has got a Literature award for writing correct English on a Blog but who knows one day such fractured english may win you an Ingenious Award for Fusion English. If Singaporeans are proud of their Chinglish, why can't we be for our Hinglish...?? After all we are the koll centre ( call centre )of the world. Don't believe me !!! Sample this-  "The whether these days is "magicfull" so I opened the window and let the atmosphere come in "

Since the Fashion and Lifestyle Industry has decided to slowly phase out the following Influencers who have a decent sense of fashion,knowledge of styling, updated on the latest or upcoming trends, interacting with designers, engaging writing skills, fresh talent would be inducted in the next financial year. 
So come one come all. Criteria for joining the Fashion Influencer community is us under .You can be an eligible blogger if you are:
1.Shuffling between jobs (part time or just for fun )
2.Out of a job and taking a sabbatical (read unable to fool the next employer ) 
3.Modelling ( you will automatically be pushed four ranks up ) and utilizing the time between assignments 
4.Run out of money,boyfriend has thrown you out .Want to get even with the evil world.
5.Page 3 aspirants (preference would be given to candidates who could murder to get a selfie with Sonam Kapoor or any of their favourite movie stars )
6. Fashion week bloggers - Bloggers who attend to get their own Paparazzi moment in front of a street style photographer and has no interest what happens on the ramp. Talk to them about any show, and swear you would regret bringing the topic up . Forget about the show- There is so much confusion in what season they are attending . 

Wow ! Everything in this fashion world is worth inspiration . Honesty does not flow very easily.Its effect is yet to come and you may hate me as of now. But I truly hope that I am able to wash down everything here.
Okay Surbhi - STOP Enough........ Breathe In ...... Breathe out ......
Now since my rant is over, enjoy the outfit I wore for AIFWSS17 which took place in the month of October - Treat this as your season hint and grab that Cuppa coffee now.

DeBelle Cosmetics- Natural Based Nail Lacquer In India (with seaweed extract )

Wednesday, 18 January 2017 /

We all want that magic that would just push our nail growth faster isn't it  ? Besides this we always wanted our regular nail polishes to be a no chip polish at the same time giving us the sheen we always wanted.
Well here you go then - Introducing DeBelle cosmetics Nail lacquers enriched with sea- weed because it's time we get the best out of everything.

Applying nail polishes in the longer run has its own set of Pros and Cons , Pros being just a temporary beautifying gratification and Cons being many , the major one being damage of natural nails ,or weakening of nails because of  continued application.
I know you all could relate to the fact when your salon girl tells you to give your nails a rest just after a yellow nail is exposed minutes before that manicure ? "Madam - Pls let your nails breathe . Too much of Nail polish is not good " I have been told this a gazillion times.  But who cares ? I want that shiny looking colour on my nails.
Its good to talk about new brands and new launches , but at the same time it's important we don't deprive ourselves of the proper nail education and care.
Talking about DeBelle , when they told me that they are one of a kind in India to manufacture nail paints with sole natural base and with sea -weed extract , that helps promote nail growth without any damage to the nails plus comes in trendy colours , I had all the reasons to be among the first ones to test these polishes and tell you all about my experience. I also googled a lot of facts with relation to sea-weed and nail growth and was quite impressed when these nail paints delivered what I expected .

To simplify things Its a little miracle when it comes to nails and  I laid down a few facts for your info
 About Sea-weed  Extract and Nail growth - Seaweed is nothing but Marine algae ,and is found naturally . This sea ingredient helps improve the condition of our nails and hands . The long lasting results of these sea extracts are strong, healthy looking and beautiful nails in the long run after a few uses.
First Impression after using De Belle Nail Polish - I got the two most beautiful shades - Bebe Kiss ( Pink ) and Moulin Rouge ( Red)
Both the colours impart a great shine only with two coats of application .It dries about nice and quick. I do a lot of normal household chores , ( just in case you think I don't have a life besides the glam world ) which includes, hands in water , and trust me your nails do take the beating for that. The nail paint has a very thin shiny layer , and after three coats I still don't feel the weight of any nail paint on my nails, unlike other nail polishes ( I wish I could take the names of bigger brands here , but lets keep the things simple )

Odourless/ Doesn't peel  - De Belle Nail polishes are odourless , dustless and safe for all the ages. This doesn't peel of in a bad way unless you put a layer everyday and removes normally faster than other ones I have used.

Clear and smooth application - After using this for over a month I can safely say that the application is pretty smooth, and has a very satisfactory (non clumpy) consistency . I love the brushes too, I think they are wide and thin. I strongly feel it would definitely work on nails that are tough to grow and I recommend using this wholeheartedly for quite sometime , until  satisfactory results are achieved.

So these were my impressions with the first ever sea weed polishes I tried in my life, and I am in love. With a little bit of a learning curve , I hope you would get to try these as well coz you really can't beat the shine and wear of this one at least.
DeBelle Nail Polishes are currently available on Amazon .
