Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post. And this mani is also my attempt at Animal Print nails which is challenge #13 of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.
For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea. This polish is supposed to be a holographic nail polish, but the holo effect isn’t very strong. And I would describe the actual colour of this polish as steel. Or steel-y. It’s neither grey nor blue.
The cute sea life images are featured on MoYou’s Doodles 07 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.
I realise that the person who thought up the original 31 Days Nail Art Challenge thought of Animal Print nails as zebra or leopard nails (or something similar). But I didn’t want to do another animal stripes mani so soon. And sea creatures are animals too, so I think I’m OK. 🙂
I like this mani! The holo polish could be prettier, but the images are just too cute. What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!
Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. 🙂
I’m starting the new week with a mani post. I really like how this mani turned out, so let me tell you how I did it.
For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry. This polish is almost a one-coater. Great quality!
I wanted a cute mani, so I grabbed one of my favourite cute stamping plates, MoYou London Doodles 07, and I went to work! 🙂
The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

Hi there! This is another mani I did recently. I painted my nails with Essence The Gel Nail Polish 33 Wild White Days (pinky), Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria (ring and middle fingers), and B. Complete 154 Brit (index finger, thumb).
I didn’t know what to do with the white & blue mani – I didn’t feel inspired at all. So in the end I opted for an underwater mani.
I used Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish in White (ring and index finger, thumb) and Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (pinky, middle finger) to stamp on images from Moyou London’s Doodles 07 plate.
Unfortunately I smudged the image on my pinky. Not sure how it happened. But all in all I like this mani. In regards to the polishes I used, I found the Rimmel polish to be amazing. The formula was perfect and it applied like a charm. Brilliant!
The B. polish wasn’t great. It took ages to dry and I had to apply three coats. The B. polish was also prone to chipping, so within 24 hours I had to ‘fix’ all the nails I painted with this polish. Not great. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the B. polish didn’t stain at all when I removed it. The white Essence polish is alright. It really is opaque in two coats. But it takes a while to dry and the formula is on the goopy side.
Feel free to comment if you wish. And thanks for reading!
Hi there! Today’s post is about the mani I did the other day. I got myself a few new stamping plates – with one of them being MoYou London’s Doodles 07 plate. So I thought I’d do a colourful (blue, white, orange) underwater mani!
I used these polishes:
Orly Snow Cone (base colour pinky and thumb, stamped image middle finger).
Revlon Red Bikini (stamped image ring finger).
Ciaté Hopscotch (base colour index finger).
Rimmel I ♥ Last Finish 704 Sweet As Sugar (base colour middle and ring fingers).
The amazing Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish in White (stamped image index finger, thumb and pinky).
I really love how this mani turned out. And I have a few more ideas on what to do with this stamping plate. 🙂 A note to myself: Orly Snow Cone and Revlon Red Bikini stamped really well!
