Fishtail Nail art

Not only hair , fishtails look good even on nails and trust me its way easier to do it on nails than on hair. I have chosen the classic black on gold combination , but it would look good with any colors                                                         .fullsizerender

NewU Nail Enamel Glitteratti Outer Space-143 5ML Review

It is a black glitter nail paint .The glitters are green.Its not very opaque in the first coat ,takes 3 coats to get the perfect color .It can  be used on a black nail paint to get a noce color in one coat . It can also be used as a glitter top coat on any color. Another way to use is to put it on a sponge to just get the glitter.

One thing that bothers me the most is that all  these paints have a terrible smell . It is very strong and opening the bottle fills the entire room with this horrible strong smell. – Online Shopping Experience & Review

NewU is a new website by dabur . It sells beauty products for both men and women . Since it is a new website they are giving very good discounts on almost all products .
I ordered 4 nail Paints , a nail paint remover and a conditioner on 20th February 2016. And got it delivered on 3rd March 2016.

  • Delivery Time :The delivery time was 11 days . Delivery charges are 30 rupees for orders blow 499 rupees.
  • Ordered products Out of Stock: I mailed the customer care executive around 30th to inquire about my order because even after 10 days the status of the order was processing.  I was told that two nail Paints from my order were out of stock . That was a bit of a surprise because when I checked their site on 30th it still showed that they were in stock .The customer care executive asked me to  replace the two items by other items . However , when I got the delivery , the nail Paints were the same which I had ordered the first time , which i was told were out of stock!
  • Slow website: Their website is extremely slow , it takes ages to load a page .
  • COD: I checked product for their availability on cash on delivery , and all products were eligible for COD ( for my pin code) However when I placed the order there was no option of cash on delivery , on inquiring about it the Customer care executive could not give me any solution to this .
  • Packaging:The packaging of products was good , there was plenty of bubble wrap ( yay!) to protect the various  glass bottles .
  • Customer Care Executive: There is only one customer care executive and he is very helpful and polite. He answers the phone and the emails .
  • Misleading Pictures :One product  ( a black nail paint ) is very different from the image on the website and I don’t like it much .
  • Discounts:Overall the website is good , offering plenty of discounts on all products and the products are all new and in good condition .
