Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab, Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Kate, Barry M Masquerade & Stamping With JQ-L02

Rimmel Black Cab Andrea Fulerton Kate JQ-L02, Essence Stampy Polish White Barry M MasqueradeHi there! After a few recent nail fails I seem to have found my mani mojo again. 🙂 So today’s post is about a recent mani I really, really liked.

As usual, I didn’t know what to do with my nails. So I started with two base colours – Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Kate (pinky, index finger) and Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab (ring finger, middle finger, thumb).

I wanted to stamp. So I selected a few pretty images from my JQ-L02 stamping plate. And I stamped on the images with Essence’s Nail Art Stampy Polish in white.

But I also wanted some sparkle. And I opted for Barry M‘s Masquerade (gold, fuchsia and light blue glitter in a clear base).

I’m very pleased with how the mani turned out. It’s got a butterfly and floral images, glitter, purple and black & white. What’s not to love? 🙂 Please feel free to let me know what you think about this mani. And thank you for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, Andrea Fulerton Art Attack & Rock Star Glitter

Funky Town Glitter NYC A Perfect Day Andrea FulertonHi there! I’ve done a lot of stamping recently, so I thought it’s time to do a glitter mani again.

I chose NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (grey) and the blue polish from Andrea Fulerton’s Nail Boutique Art Attack Trio as my base colours.

The NYC polish is fantastic in every way – but the Andrea Fulerton polish annoyed me a bit. It took ages to dry – well over 45 minutes per coat. Fortunately I was watching a movie, so my hands weren’t busy.

The glitter is one of my favourite glitter mixes – it’s called Funky Town and I think it’s the ultimate rock star glitter mix.

I’ve done a mani – quite similar to this one – with the same glitter mix before. If you’d like to compare the manis and tell me which one you like better, you can find the other mani here.

I really like both manis, but I think this one looks fresher. I don’t know why, but my husband thinks it’s because the glitter looks so alive on the grey polish. Well, who am I to argue? 🙂

Feel free to let me know which mani you like better – the one from last year or this one. And thanks for stopping by!
