Nail Of The Day – Boots No.7 Devil’s Delight & Stamping With Pueen 77 / Nail Art Challenge #1 Red Nails

uploadHi there! I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge, and today’s post is about Red Nails (Nail Art Challenge #1).

For this mani I painted my nails with Boots No.7 Devil’s Delight (two coats). I like the formula of this polish. It’s perfect. And the No.7 brush (wide, flat) is great too.

If you know me, you know I can’t just paint my nails and leave it at that. And I think the Nail Art Challenge is worthy of more than just plain red nails.

So I decided to stamp! I chose a cute image from Pueen’s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). The white stamping polish is Essence’s fantastic Stampy Polish.

I’m pleased with this mani and I really like the red and white colour combination. Do you agree? Feel free to let me know what you think. Oh, and the next mani might be ‘inspired by fashion’ (I’m thinking of something…) so let’s see how it goes! And thanks for reading!

      Stamping is super easy. Everyone can do it. I’d say it took me about fifteen minutes to figure it out – and then I stamped right away. Sure, I got better over time, and there were also a few hiccups (new plates, new polish, new stampers…) over the years, but this will happen to everyone, so don’t worry. 🙂

      If you’re interesting in stamping, I’ve done a full tutorial which covers everything – stampers, scrapers, polish, stamping plates, tips and tricks… it covers everything I’ve learned and everything I wish I had known when I started. You can find it here:

      If you’ve never stamped and if you don’t know how it actually works, it can look like rocket science. But Everyone can do it. I think everyone can figure it out within a few hours tops. But most people will figure it out in minutes.

      And when you stamp for the first time, don’t stamp the images onto your nails right away – especially not if you didn’t pick up the image perfectly. Start by stamping the images onto a piece of paper. That’s awesome for practice and you’ll familiarise yourself with the process and stamping will become the most ‘normal’ thing in the world. And you’ll think, damn, why didn’t I do this sooner. 🙂

      If you have any questions, or if you’d like recommendations for stamping plates, please let me know and I’ll try to help.

      Again, thanks for stopping by! 🙂
