Nail Of The Day – Models Own Goose, Rimmel 60 Seconds 507 Round And Round In Circles & Stamping With Pueen 61 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #3 Yellow Nails

Hi there! This is another mani that I’m doing for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing for the 2nd time and on my own terms). This is mani is for challenge #3 YELLOW NAILS.

For this easy mani I painted my pinkies and ring fingers with 4 (!) coats of Models Own Goose.

I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with 2 coats of white polish, and then 2 coats of Rimmel 60 Seconds 507 Round And Round In Circles.

I used Pueen‘s 61 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Sarong Wrap & Stamping With Pueen 83 (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Nail Week is still on, so here’s another mani I did some time ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark‘s PS… Snow White nail polish (1 coat). Once the white base had dried, it was time for Models Own Sarong Wrap (2 coats). Sarong Wrap is a low-quality polish. It’s terribly thin, and I don’t think I would have gotten much (or any) joy from it had I not started with a white base.

Anyhoo… I thought that light pink accents would look nice, so I used a small piece of a makeup sponge to apply pink polish to my nails. Well, it didn’t look great, but I didn’t have the time to correct the mistake, so I just left it as it was.

Then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 83 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and Revlon Top Speed 880 Black Star.

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Diamond Luxe Pear Purple & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! This week’s going to be NAIL WEEK. Today’s post is about a mani I did a few months ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Models Own Diamond Luxe Pear Purple (2 coats). This is a beautiful polish. It’s purple (which my favourite nail colour), and it’s bursting with micro-shimmer. I love it!

Whilst the plain purple nails looked great on their own, I decided to stamp. I used Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection).

I don’t remember which nail polish I stamped with, but it was a regular (and random) non-stamping polish. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 250 Rich Raspberry, Models Own Goose & Stamping With Pueen 84

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Models Own Goose (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Revlon Colorstay 250 Rich Raspberry (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I stamped using Pueen‘s 84 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and the amazing Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize which is one of the best non-stamping polishes that stamp well.

Whilst I didn’t love this mani, I did like it. I think it looked cute and bright.

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Goose, Sinful Colors Blue La La & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-720

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Models Own Goose (3 coats, pinkies, ring fingers). This is one of the polishes from Models Own’s super cute Speckled Eggs collection.

I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with the beautiful Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Bundle Monster‘s BM-720 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster‘s Secret Garden collection – which I bought a few weeks ago).

I really liked this mani. The Models Own polish is super cute, Sinful Colors Blue La La is a sensationally beautiful shade of blue, and I love this Bundle Monster stamping plate! What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Haul – New Products! Feat. MoYou London, Models Own, Bundle Monster, Anovia, T-Zone, Baylis & Harding

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post in a little while, so here’s what I bought over the past couple of weeks. 🙂

Anovia Bamboo & Lotus Shampoo and Conditioner – 500ml bottles for 99p each (Home Bargains).

T-Zone Blue Peel Off Mask (99p, Home Bargains), and 3 Models Own Hipstick Sheen Lipsticks – Naked Brown, Retro Pink, Deep Plum (£1, Poundland).

New MoYou London stamping plates – Sailor 06 & 13, Origami 06, Animal 03 & 07, Tropical 10 – these were £2.99 each.

New MoYou stamping polishes – Little Pickle, Scandi Sun, Genie In A Bottle, Alpine Rain, Cancun Coral, Powder Blue, Orchid Chic – these were 2.99 each.

I must say I found the customer service at MoYou London really poor. There were several issues with my order. The customer service agent didn’t read my emails properly so there were a few pointless exchanges, and because of this it took over a month to sort out my order. I also found it extremely lazy and unprofessional that she didn’t start or finish most of her emails with any kind of salutation.

I don’t usually complain if people make mistakes. We all make mistakes, but most of us have the decency to say sorry. Please don’t think I sent her any rude emails. She kept making mistakes, she was condescending, and she failed to apologise whilst I was simply too patient for too long! I wanted to buy a few more MoYou stamping plates, and I already had them in my online cart, but then I decided to buy new stamping plates elsewhere…

… and I purchased Bundle Monster‘s sensational Secret Garden stamping plate collection – £17.62. What a bargain! I purchased this set through Nail Art UK. Great service!

And I found Baylis & Harding‘s Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter and Fragrance Mist. These were £1 each at Poundland.

I’m very happy with what I bought. Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try any of them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!
