Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 053 Apricot Punch & Stamping With Biutee 09 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #27 Inspired By Artwork

Hi there! This week is going to be Nail Week, so I’ll be posting about manis only.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 053 Apricot Punch (2 coats). I’m not a fan of orange nail colours, but this is a nice shade. It’ll be great for Halloween!

For the images I used my Biutee 09 stamping plate and Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch.

I got the idea for this mani when I saw a magazine advert for a hair styling product. Whilst I didn’t care about the product, I liked the orange background and the green leaves, and my first though was “I can do a mani that looks like this”.

This mani counts towards the completion of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge which I’m doing for the second time and on my own terms. This mani is for challenge #27 Inspired By Artwork.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel & Miss Sporty / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #19 Galaxies

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week, and this means that Nail Week has come to an end.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

I used small pieces of a make-up sponge to apply blobs of colourful polish to my nails. I started with white blobs over which I applied the following polishes:

Rimmel Lycra Pro 295 Fancy Fushia (pink),
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (lilac),
Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (light blue).

The cute glitter top coat I used is Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 803 Man Overboard & Foils / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #9 Rainbow Nails

Hi there! This is another mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing again – on my own terms). This is for challenge #9 RAINBOW NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 803 Man Overboard (2 coats). This is a decent grey polish. In the bottle it looks like a medium grey, but it’s actually more of a medium to dark grey. This isn’t terrible, but I was trying to go for a “grey sky” look which would have looked better with a lighter shade of grey. Ah well…

For the rainbow effects I used colourful foils. If you’d like to try foil nails the easy way, check out this easy to follow tutorial.

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Heirloom & Stamping With Pueen 100 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #8 Metallic Nails

Hi there! This is another Nail Of The Day post. And it’s another mani I did for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. It’s #8 METALLIC NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Heirloom (3 coats). This polish took ages to dry, and it chipped quickly. Terrible quality!

I decided to stamp, and I used Pueen‘s 100 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate set) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

This mani looked amazing in real life, but it was impossible to capture it. I’m not proud of this photo for a number of reasons, but it was actually the best of the bunch I took!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With Biutee 10 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #7 Black & White Nails

Hi there! This week is going to be NAIL WEEK. This means that I’ll be posting about nail stuff only. 😎

I did another mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing on my own terms – not in 31 days and not in chronological order). This mani is for challenge #7 BLACK & WHITE NAILS.

And for this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is a fantastic polish. I love it!

For the images I used my relatively new Biutee 10 stamping plate and Essence‘s amazing black stamping polish. Too bad that Essence discontinued their stamping polishes. 🙁

I liked this mani a lot. I know I’ll be using this stamping plate a lot in the not too distant future!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer & Stamping With Maniology BM-S161 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #12 Stripes

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. I did this mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. It’s #12 STRIPES (as you can see, I went for animal stripes).

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer (2 coats). This is a beautiful polish. It’s bursting with pigment (it’s almost a one-coater), and I love the soft yellow shade.

For the images I used Maniology‘s BM-S161 stamping plate (which is part of their Fuzzy & Ferocious stamping plate collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto which is an all-time favourite of mine.
