Nail Of The Day – Fearne Lola Lavender & Stamping With Pueen 106

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Fearne Lola Lavender (2 easy coats). I love this nail polish. Great formula, dries quickly, wonderful colour.

I decided to stamp, and I used one of my newest stamping plates, Pueen‘s 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping collection).

The two polishes I stamped with are Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold).

I really loved this mani. The gold and black stamping colours look really nice with the lavender base.

Nail Of The Day – Fearne Lola Lavender & Models Own Jack Frost

Hi there! Today’s post is not just a Nail Of The Day post.

It’s also the last post for this week which means that Nail Week has come to an end.

Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Fearne Lola Lavender (2 coats).

I think this is a great quality polish. It’s almost a one-coater, and it dries quickly.

The top coat I used is Models Own Jack Frost (1 coat). I found this beautiful holographic glitter polish at one of the Poundstores – what a bargain!

It was impossible to capture this holographic beauty in a single photo – but in real life this top coat looks stunning.

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Fearne Devilish Diamonds & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is about another Christmas-themed mani I did a couple of days ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 280 Pure Silver (1 coat).

This polish looks gorgeous in the bottle. But it’s actually remarkably ugly because it’s very brush-strokey. So I had to fix my mani right there! I painted 1 coat of Fearne’s Devilish Diamonds over Rimmel’s ugly polish – and it saved my mani!

I used Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (the blue polish) and my new unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate to add a few wintry images.

I think this mani looks great. It was impossible to capture the real life beauty of this mani, but it still looks pretty nice in the picture. And yes, this mani is more wintry than christmassey, but I think that’s perfectly alright. 🙂

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

Nail Of The Day – Fearne Minty Maggie And Stamping With Pueen Love Elements 26 & 33

NOTDHi there! A few days ago I let my husband pick my nail colour again. He opted for a pale mint green (not my favourite colour), Fearne Minty Maggie.

Minty Maggie is a decent polish that’s almost opaque in one coat – which is unusual for such a light shade. And the polish dried reasonably quickly too. Nice!

Since I’m not the biggest fan of pastel nail colours, it didn’t take me long to decide that I would stamp. And I chose random images from Pueen’s 26 and 33 plates (both plates are part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto, my favourite black non-stamping polish that stamps perfectly.

I’m happy with this mani. I know my nails are quite short and my hands look quite rough at the moment. That’s because they really suffered during the big post-summer clean and clear-out we had last weekend. But they’ll be OK in a few days. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Watercolours & Stamping Featuring Rimmel, Revlon, NYC and more

uploadHi there! Today I want to show you the cute mani I did the other day. I wasn’t sure if it would work out, but I really liked it. And the best thing is that it was really easy to do!

I used NYC In A Minute 019 Perfect Day (light grey, two coats) as my base colour.

Then I chose four colours as my watercolours:
Rimmel French White Tip Pro 110 French White (white),
Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 406 Cute As A Kitten Heel (yellow),
Revlon Colorstay 110 Marmalade (orange),
Fearne Minty Maggie (mint green).

And then I sponged on the watercolours. It’s exactly this: I dabbed on the colours randomly – with a make-up sponge. It’s really easy. You can’t get it wrong.

The last step was stamping on the butterflies. I used images from six different stamping plates. One of those plates was Pueen 39 from Pueen’s Love Elements collection. All the other plates were unbranded ones. The black polish I used to stamp on the images was Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Please feel free to tell me what you think of this mani. And thanks for stopping by.
