The Ice Princess Nail Art +Nail of the Week

Glam Up your Nails with the Ice Princess Nail Art

This week post is a merger of a  Nail Tutorial +Nail of the week, I wanted to share my newest nail design with you all so here we go.

Its a pretty easy to do design for beginners and pretty stunning to look at .

I was inspired by the name “Ice Princess” hence the title and it totally goes with winter season.If you are a glitter fan like I am becoming then you’ll enjoy this design too.

So without any further ado lets get started:)

1)      Start off with a nail base coat- 
"if you don’t you’ll up with stained hands like mine." bad bad experience:(

2)      Paint your nail with a nude baby pink /beige colour– I used Golden Rose PARIS NAIL LACQUER”  in beige #12

4)      Add tons of the the glitter polish on the tips… a messy way, it doesn't have to perfect-
Wait for the design to be set and then finish off with the clear top coat.
And you are DONE:)

THE REVIEW :Labello-Glamorous Gloss Natural & Vitamin Shake Cranberry & Raspberry Lip Balm

With the winter season chapped lips are a hell a lot of pain and evil to deal with….

Now if you are on a search of a nice lip moisturizer/ lip balm then keep on reading …

Labello is the brand that introduced me to the lip balm world .Most of their lip balm I have tried out. Some I love and some Not so much….

Today I will be going to talk about the one that I absolutely love and the one that in my opinion works wonder….:)

REVIEW :Labello-Glamorous Gloss Natural & Vitamin Shake Cranberry & Raspberry Lip Balm

Let’s start with the Lip gloss which also works as a excellent lip balm first which inspired me to write this Review.

Labello Glamorous Gloss Natural

Labello-Glamorous Gloss Natural pacakaging

My 5 year old niece - got this lip gloss for herself & after she used it for quite some time she got herself a new tube and gave this with me and since then its with me.

The description of this lip gloss is…

Glamorous Natural Gloss gives lips a dazzling, shimmering shine and the gentlest hint of creamy pink for glamorous yet natural lips with an incredibly moisturized, non-sticky finish.

Amount of Product: 8.5 ml

Shelf Life: 12 M


First and foremost I’ll agree with the entire thing listed in the description above, as this product does what is says.

1)     The applicator on this has a slant which makes the product easily & smoothly applied; filling in everything, giving an even application.

2) The formulations is just like jelly without the sticky feeling; your lips feel silky smooth and hydrated/moisturize up to 3-5 hours.

3)      It has a hint of pink and tiny silver & gold flecks in it that you can’t feel on your lips which is a nice.

4)   The slight pink make your lip look healthy and the tiny sparkle which you cant really see but it make your lips

5)      For being a 2 in 1 product i.e. lip gloss and a lip moisturizer the price for this is decent.


1)   Although I love the applicator on this product ,I don’t appreciate the squeeze tube packaging. I am a person that likes to use my product till the very last drop and this makes me feel that I would waste some of the product that will be left on the sides, which I don’t like.

I’ll cut it the tub open after I have finished the product and then we’ll see if completed the entire product or Not…(will be updating this;) )

Would I repurchase this in future??

Yes, this product is something that you can use in the place of a clear lip gloss that has lots of extra oomph to it and is cheap from other lip gloss- at least the one that I have bought before so it’s a win win.


Labello Vitamin Shake Cranberry &Raspberry

The description on this say:

Cranberry & Raspberry Vitamin Shake is a swirled, subtly tinted balm that leaves lips kissed with a hint of creamy, natural color and an irresistible satin finish for a healthy glow.

Amount of product: 4.8 g/5.5 ml

Shelf Life: 12 M

If you are on a look out for a lip balm with something extra then you should check this one. 

The packaging on this is so pretty and beautiful; I was sucked in very quickly. 
Unique and different.

 At first I was bit hesitant as I was using the 
Labello Lip Balm in Milk and Honey 
and it was doing wonders, I didn't want to change it but at the same time it was getting boring, so I made a mental note to myself that when the Milk and Honey finishes I would try this
Vitamin Shake 
out….and so I did.

The Pro

1)     Cutest packaging ever and product ever!! The design on the lip balm itself is just to die for. It seriously look like a Cranberry and Raspberry milkshake. 

Labello Vitamin Shake Cranberry &Raspberry -how the product look like

2)      The smell- if you know Fruit-Tella -the -Strawberry flavor, this is the exactly the same smell (fruity and sweet) which makes me love this even more. It’s like Fruit-Tella in a lip balm.

3)      It moisturize…..Yahhhhhh…’s fancy yet keep the lip hydrated and add a beautiful color to you lips- making them look plump and healthy.

4) If you are someone who is not in to lipstick and is looking for something that add a hint of color then this is good for you. 
On days when sometimes I don’t want to reach to my lipsticks I just outline my lips with a color that is close to my lips and swipe this on and its looks beautiful-very natural.

5)    Has SPF 10.

6)  Contains- Vitamins E,C and Pro B5-if they say so...

7)     You get good amount of product and lasts for quite some time for a decent price-
I have been using mine since 6 months and still remains.


1)      Hmmm.... the smell might put you off if you are not a fan of fruity scents.

2) It’s so soft and creamy it can melt -in summer ,if you leave it in a hot place.

Other than that it’s a pretty nice product and does its job great.

Would I repurchase this in future??

Yes Yes Yes!
 No doubt!
 It’s cute, fun and does the job nicely.

Total Repurchase Quality :)
