Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven, Astor Perfect Stay Velvet Effect 610 Sensual Candle & Stamping With Pueen 81

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 610 Sensual Candle (2 coats, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (2 coats, ring and middle fingers).

The Astor polish is truly unique. It doesn’t really feel like velvet, but it feels sensationally smooth.

I used Pueen‘s 81 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection). I tend to ignore stamping plates with funny shapes, but I’m glad I gave this one a try. I like the image! Oh, and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 370 Uptempo Plum. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio Acid Drop & Stamping With Pueen 74

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 006 Acid Drop (2 coats).

I like this polish! The cucumber shade looks fresh (great for spring and summer manis), and I like the micro-shimmer.

I also think this is a good polish. It dries quickly and it’s perfect in 2 coats – I didn’t expect this because of the light colour, but I’m not complaining. 😉

I stamped with Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House. And the stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection.

I think this mani looks alright. The images on the index and ring fingers didn’t stamp perfectly (it’s the same on my left hand). But all in all, I think this is a nice little mani that’s perfect to welcome spring!

What do you think of green manis? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy & Stamping With Pueen 77 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge L – Love

Hi there! Today’s post is about my Valentine’s Day mani. Quite late, huh?

Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

I decided to double-stamp, and I used 2 non-stamping polishes for this – Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold) and NYC In A Minute 230 Penn Station (red).

I think this mani was alright. It was nothing special, but it looked cute. And I really liked the double-stamping effect!

This mani goes in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file it under LLove! How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow, China Glaze Red Satin, Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green & Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (pinkies), China Glaze Red Satin (ring and middle fingers), and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (index fingers and thumbs).

The glitter topper I used on my pinkies is Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter.

I really like this mani! But I’ve realised that I need a better red glitter topper!

Why did I do this mani? Well, I’m a total tennis nut. And Belarus has been my favourite Fed Cup team for quite some time now.

Why is that? Well, over the past 2 years the Belarusian fed cup players have shown that they’re true champions. The players have given their all, and they’ve played well above their respective rankings to despatch higher ranked players on a number of occasions. How could anyone not root for them?! Well, I certainly hope they win their tie this weekend!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / China Glaze Red Satin, Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green & Orly Hair Band / A-Z Nail Art Challenge J – Joy To The World

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

For this Christmas-themed mani I painted my nails with China Glaze Red Satin (ring and middle fingers, thumbs) and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (ring and index fingers).

I love these 2 polishes because the colours are 100% christmassey, and the polishes are of great quality. Aesome stuff!

The top coat is Orly Hair Band (1 coat) which is my favourite gold glitter top coat.

It’s packed with glitter, it dries quickly and the glitter lays flat which means that my nails feel super smooth.

I’m very happy with this mani! I do this mani every year, and I still love the red+green+gold look. I’ve also decided to make this mani part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. I’ll file it under J – Joy To The World. 🙂 How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Bourjois Anti-Choc No Chips 17, Astor Lacque Deluxe 875 Electric Blue & Water Decals / A-Z Nail Art Challenge V – Vibrant Nails

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did recently.

For this mani I painted my nails with Bourjois Anti Choc / No Chips 17 and Astor Lacque Deluxe 875 Electric Blue.

And I used colourful water decals to add that je ne sais quoi to an otherwise fairly standard mani.

Since the water decals are quite eye-catching, this mani is going in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file it under V – Vibrant Nails.

I think this mani looks really cool! What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy, Essence Glitter Jewels 03 Glitz & Glam, Orly Liquid Vinyl And Stamping With Pueen

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a random mani that I did a while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy. The black base on the accent nail is Orly Liquid Vinyl. The glitter is Essence Glitter Jewels 03 Glitz & Glam.

I stamped with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Pueen’s 54 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

I didn’t like the colour combo, and I’ve never liked this stamping plate (I’ve never used it before). So, I didn’t like this mani. But it was OK for the 2 days that I wore it.

Onto new (and better) nail adventures! 🙂
