Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Hopscotch & Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat 800 Tweedy (Nail Fail)

Hi there! I’ve got another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Hopscotch (4 coats). This is one of my least favourite Ciaté polishes. Why? The quality is poor, and I don’t like the colour at all.

At first I wanted to stamp, but then I decided to apply a funky top coat. This is Sally Hansen’s Fuzzy Coat in 800 Tweedy.

I love these fuzzy top coats. They look like Muppet fur trimmings! 🙂

I think this mani wasn’t my best work. But in real life it looked better than in the photo! Anyhoo, next time I’ll pair this topper with a more appealing base colour.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue & Stamping With Sugar Bubbles SB 031

Hi there! Today’s post is about a cute marine-themed mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue (2 coats).

The colour looks nice, but I really don’t like this polish at all. It stains badly. I should use it as a stamping polish only – this should be OK.

Anyway, since I already had a dark blue base, I decided to do (another) marine-themed mani. So I used Sugar Bubbles‘ cute SB 031 stamping plate.

And I double-stamped with Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold).

I really like this mani. It’s like… the sea, marine creatures and sunlight. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova / A-Z Nail Art Challenge M – Movie

Hi there! Today’s NOTD post is about a mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. It’s for M – Movie!

The movie that inspired this mani is Pretty In Pink (with ♥ James Spader ♥).

Alrighty! For this mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish. It’s a dream to work with.

The glitter I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

This is my favourite glitter topper. It looks sensational, it dries quickly, it feels perfectly smooth, (no stand-offish glitter particles), and it makes my nails feel super strong. I love it!

I really liked this mani. It was simple and pretty. Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With Pueen 72 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge Q – Quick & Easy

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge (which I am doing for myself). I’m filing this mani under Q – Quick & Easy.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats). This polish is almost a one-coater. Very nice!

Whilst I don’t like this particular shade of green, I think that it’s an excellent base colour for stamping.

I used Pueen’s 72 plate (part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection, one of my favourites), and I stamped with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I really liked this mani. It looked great. But also simple. And effortless. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan ModePilot 03M & Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti

Hi there! Over the past few months I’ve done a few manis that I didn’t share with you. But since this week is Nail Week, I’ll show you the forgotten manis. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Mode Pilot 03M (2 coats).

I love this Manhattan polish. The formula is great and the colour is very pretty.

The glitter topper is equally pretty! It’s Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti (1 easy coat).

I really liked this mani. The base colour and the topper look great together – but wine and gold are made for each other, so I knew the mani would great. 🙂

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist 60 Seconds Saviour Intensive Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist 60 Seconds Saviour Intensive Conditioner.

This product, which contains arginine and is aimed at people with fragile hair, promises to reinforce hair fibres without weighing hair down.

As a result, L’Oréal promises intensely nourished, super soft and stronger hair.

I’ve used this deep conditioner for a few times now, and I think it’s great. It’s easy to use, it detangles my hair perfectly, it smells lovely, and it makes my hair feel sensationally soft. And despite all that, it doesn’t flatten my hair. Wow!

However, there’s one problem. It appears L’Oréal discontinued the entire Triple Resist collection. I’m surprised because I thought this was one of L’Oréal’s most popular collections.

If you’d like to try L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist 60 Seconds Saviour Intensive Conditioner, you have to be quick. I got this one from Home Bargains (and it was 99p, I think).
