DIY Nail Art #5 feat The Polish Yard

So 4 tutorials are done, just 2 more to go. On the previous few posts we have had people talking about how amazing the nail art looks on long nails. But hey, who said that those with short nails can't get nail art done. This one is specifically for you ladies who have nail biting issues or nails that just don't grow long.


Lavender Showers feat The Herb Boutique

This year has not been easy so far. Shifting cities, trying to find my place in the new family, learning how life in Chennai is, dealing with the heat, and of course trying to maintain this blog + the new travel and food blog-Iris Montage. There are compromises to make. There are adjustments to be done. And every time I think I have found a routine, it gets blown away by the winds of change. I am slowly coming to accept the fact that THIS IS MY ROUTINE.


REVIEW: Satthwa Premium Hair Oil

Satthwa Hair Oil review

Hair fall has become a part of my life and I have started to come to terms with the fact that I will never have the stunning thick black hair that I had in school. I can't really say that there is just one cause for the hairfall but the environment around me has changed so much that I don't think hair fall will ever stop. All I try to do these days is control it and keep it under check. I don't freak out too much at the hair fallen in the shower or the room unless it hits a certain limit. I pacify myself everyday saying that some amount of hairfall is a must every day.


DIY Nail Art #3 feat The Polish Yard

Continuing with the monochrome series, here we have the third one easy-to-do nail art.

Wondering where are number 1 and number 2? Click on the images to see the full version. 

Nail Art 1: Going Dotty 

Nail Art 2-  Triangular Sequence

Nail Art 3 - The Half Moon

This nail art requires absolutely no tools. The polishes that I used this time are Manhattan’s Quick Dry White and Essence’s black.

Step 1: 

Start off with a good base coat as usual and then apply white nail polish. I added two coats for complete opacity.

Step 2:

Next start with the right corner of your cuticle drawing a curve with black nail polish. Well, you need a steady hand for this so keep practising.
Pro tip- Move the finger instead of the nail polish brush 

Watch the video to see how I did it.

Step 3:

Finish the mani with a top coat.

Stay tuned for the next tutorial and tell us how you found this one.

Hope you guys are liking this series so far. Please do share your recreations using the hastag #IAxTPY.

All About

I don’t think I have considered myself as a fashion blogger persay. I think I am more of a personal style blogger and honestly I have discovered my personal style through the blog. I love how it has been constantly evolving and how I have managed to showcase so many smaller designers. I am always on the lookout for something different and unique, so when I was introduced to, I was really excited.

Hey everyone,

So its been a while since I was here. I have a had a lot on my plate over the last 2 weeks and just have not been able to sit down and write. But that doesn't mean that IshtyleAwhile has been silent. Oh no, not at all. We've been attending events, launches and more. (When I say we, I really mean we. IshtyleAwhile is now building a team and I am super excited.)  You should follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the latest updates.

Nail Art and me just don't go together. But I still wanted to do a series on the blog with some simple nail art for beginners. So what do I do?
I decided to reach out to The Polish Yard and collaborate with her to do nail art with a step by step tutorial as well, basically nail art for dummies.
