Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match & Rainbow Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match (1 coat). Essence’s Colour Boost polishes are one-coaters. I bought them (yes, all the colours) because I thought they’d make great stamping polishes, but I also use them when I don’t have the time to wait for multiple coats of polish to dry.

This time I also used rainbow foils to add a pop of colour to the blue nails.

The mani looked great in real life, and I wish I had been able to capture its beauty. But there’s just not enough daylight this time of year…

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Water Decals & Foils

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (2 coats, middle and ring fingers, thumbs). I used some gold foil to add a touch of sparkle to the plain green nails.

Then I used floral water decals on my pinkies and ring fingers. I applied 1 coat of Essie As Gold As It Gets for a hint of sparkle. It’s hardly visible in the photo, but it looked nice in real life.

I liked the mani! It looks very busy in the photo, but it’s actually not – you have to try to ignore the colourful sticker on the nail polish lid.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 444 Seduce & Gold Foils

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

I want to do christmassey manis this month, but I also want to do things slightly differently, so why not try purple and gold?

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 444 Seduce (2 coats). This is a beautiful purple polish that goes with (almost) everything.

I used some leftover gold foil for the accents, and I think it worked out brilliantly! I liked this mani a lot!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 391 Celebrity Bash & Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 391 Celebrity Bash (2 easy coats).

I’m not the biggest fan of red nail polish, but this one is lovely – on its own and when used in nail art.

This time I opted for colourful nail foils. Whilst the photo isn’t the greatest, the mani looked very cute in real life.

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 04 Instant Love & Rainbow Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 04 Instant Love (1 coat). This polish is part of a “1 Coat & Go” collection which consists of 10 polishes. I bought them all because I thought they’d make great stamping polishes – and I was right!

But Essence discontinued the entire collection quite soon after the launch. My guess is they realised the polishes were simply too good to be sold for £1.80 a piece.

Anyhoo… for the colourful accents I used a small piece of leftover rainbow foil. I liked the mani a lot, and I can’t wait to do more foil manis soon!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 220 Sage All The Rage & Rainbow Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 220 Sage All The Rage (2 coats).

I’m not a fan of nothing colours like this one, but I’ve know for a while that these nothing colours are usually great background colours for stamping and other nail art.

So I decided to use some leftover rainbow foil for colourful accents – and this worked out brilliantly.

I liked this mani a lot = and that’s because of the rainbow foils. Yes, the photos isn’t the greatest, but the mani looked very cute in real life!
