Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 100 Buttercup & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-S162 / Nail Art Challenge #27 Inspired By Artwork

Hi there! Today’s post is about a recent mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. With this mani I’ve completed challenge #27 Inspired By Artwork!

The artwork in question is the black cats print on the pale yellow scarf that one of my co-workers has been wearing for quite some time.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 100 Buttercup (2 coats). I don’t love this colour, but it came in handy for this mani!

The stamping plate I used is Bundle Monster’s BM-S162 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster’s Fuzzy and Ferocious collection).

The black stamping polish (not a real stamping polish) is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I didn’t like this mani at all. I rushed it, and it shows. I wore this mani for one day only. However, I’m glad I’ve completed the dreaded ‘artwork challenge’. Yay! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – MUA White Wash & Stamping With Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria & JQ43 / Nail Art Challenge #20 Water Marble (Cheat)

Hi there! Today’s post is about another nail art challenge that I’ve completed. Well, I haven’t done what I was supposed to do, but since I’m doing the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge for no one but myself, I’m happy to bend the rules. 🙂

Alrighty! For challenge #20 Water Marble I should have done a water marble mani. However, the JQ 43 stamping plate, which I’ve had for ages, features an image that looks like a water marble. So I gave it a try.

And this is the result! Does this mani look like a water marble mani? Remotely. But that’s good enough for me! Challenge completed!

Which products did I use? The white base colour is MUA White Wash. The stamping colour is Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria. The stamping plate is an unbranded one – it’s just called JQ 43.

Nail Of The Day – Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07 / Nail Art Challenge #13 Animal Print

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!

Nail Of The Day – Nail Art Challenge #9 Rainbow Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. It’s also another mani that counts toward the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And this rather chaotic mani is my attempt at challenge #9 Rainbow Nails.

Before I tell you which products I used, let me tell you how I ended up with this mani… one of my friend’s daughters celebrated her 11th birthday over the Easter weekend. I’m not good at baking or decorating, so I offered my friend to give her daughter a manicure.

I had lots of different nail colours and glitter toppers with me when I came to my friend’s house on Good Friday, so it wasn’t surprising that the young lady couldn’t decide which nail colour she liked best.

I suggested to paint her nails in different colours – and she agreed! The young lady opted for (more or less) pastel shades – light blue, orange, lilac, yellow and light green. And she chose a super cute glitter topper to complete the look.

When I got home I painted my nails in the same colours:
MakeUp Revolution True Blue (pinky),
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 844 On The Mango (ring finger),
NYC Expert Last 255 Late Night Lilac (middle finger),
P2 240 Joyful (index finger),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 816 Green-Eyed Monster (thumb),
Jess Rainbow (glitter topper).
The only difference was that I used a peel-off base coat (for easy removal) on my friend’s daughter’s nails, whilst I used a regular base coat on my own nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Essence Out Of Space Stories 01 Outta Space Is The Place & Stamping With Pueen 80 / Nail Art Challenge #14 Flowers

Hi there! I’ve got another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂 For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Out Of Space Stories 01 Outta Space Is The Place (two easy coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 80 plate (which is available as part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). And the polish I used to stamp on the flowers is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

This mani also counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge – and it’s for challenge #14 Flowers.

I think this mani turned out alright. I think the images go well with the pearlescent base. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Stamping With Pueen 44 / Nail Art Challenge #25 Inspired By Fashion

Hi there! Today’s mani is another 31 Days Nail Art Challenge entry!

This mani is my attempt at challenge #25 – Inspired By Fashion. And the fashion item that inspired this mani is a scarf of mine.

I’ve used said scarf as backdrop for a few product photos. If you’re interested, you can see the scarf here.

Now onto the mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection).

And I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp on the stars. 🙂

Whilst this mani turned out a little messy, I still liked it. What do you think? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Maybelline Forever Strong 795 Cloudy Grey & Stamping With Pueen 53 / Nail Art Challenge #16 Print

upload-4Hi there! Today I’ve got another nail post for you. 🙂

With today’s post I’m continuing “my” 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

However, today’s challenge is the first challenge that I have changed a little. I thought that changing it would be better than skipping it altogether!

The original challenge #16 would have been Tribal Print. However, I dislike tribal print manis just as much as I dislike polka dot manis, so I changed Tribal Print to Print.

And this means… the new challenge is #16 Print! Hey, what’s more print than newspaper print? 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Maybelline Forever Strong 795 Cloudy Grey (1 coat). And I could finally use my Pueen 53 plate (from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection)! The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

How do you like this mani? I think it’s alright. It’s not my favourite mani, but it certainly beats beige nail colours (yawn…) and the likes. 🙂 If you want to comment, please do so. And thanks for stopping by!
