Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight & Foils

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did just last month. It’s not the most spectacular mani, and I’ve noticed that the middle finger looks weird in the photo (like there’s a dent in the nail), but it’s too late to take new photos now…

OK, for this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight (1 coat). I like this polish a lot. The colour is gorgeous!

For the colourful effect I used rainbow foils. If you’re wondering how do to foil nails, check out this pictorial. Foil nails are incredibly easy to do!

As I said earlier, this mani was rather unspectacular. I didn’t love it. But it was alright for a few days.

Nail Of The Day – Foils & Stamping Feat. Rimmel, Revlon, MoYou London, etc.

Hi there! A few weeks ago I did a colourful mani. I had no idea what I was going for, but I did like the result!

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir (middle and ring fingers, thumbs, 2 coats) before I applied leftover gold foil.

For the other nails I made decals! I used my unbranded stamping mat, MoYou London‘s cute Flower Power 16 plate and a number of colour polishes:

Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black), Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White, Rimmel Salon Pro 500 Peppermint, NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple, and a nameless Beauty UK polish in a maroon colour.

As I said earlier, I liked this mani a lot. I will be doing something similar in the not too distant future! Alrighty, this post is the last one for this week. This means that Nail Week has come to an end. I’m back tomorrow with a product review! Thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 712 Rhythm & Blue AND Foils

Hi there! I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 712 Rhythm & Blues (2 coats). This is an almost-black shade with a creamy finish. It’s beautiful!

I used rainbow foils for the accents – yellow / gold, red, pink, green and blue – it’s all there. 😍

Whilst I did like this mani, it was nothing special. I’ve done better foil manis. I’ve also taken better photos of manis, but for some reason it was impossible to get the perfect photo of this mani. Ah well, onto the next mani…

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 – Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 340 Cinna-Snap & Foils

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

I haven’t done a foil mani in quite some time, so I thought it’s definitely time for one!

So for this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 340 Cinna Snap (2 coats). This is supposed to be a quick-dry polish, but it took ages to dry. Terrible!

I used colourful foils for the accents, and I’m happy with how this mani turned out. Each nail looked truly unique!

If you’ve never done a foil mani but would like to know how to do one, I’ve done a tutorial which you can find here. Supplies are cheap, and it’s super easy to do!

My Favourite Manis Of 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite manis of 2018. I stamped like a maniac, I used a lot of glitter, and I did plenty of foil manis. Scroll down if you’d like to know which manis I really liked this year. 🙂

Galaxy Nails
Yellow Nails
Foil Nails

Purple Nails
Halloween Nails
Christmas Nails

Blue Nails
Mixed Nails
Halloween Nails

Foil Nails
Orange Nails
Out Of Space Nails

These were my favourite manis from 2018. I bought more stamping plates, and I have a crazy amount of foils and glitter toppers, so I’m sure 2019 will be a similarly colourful year for nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey, Water Decals & Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I love the black polish. It’s a true black. Gorgeous! “Steel Grey” isn’t grey at all. It’s more like one of those (more or less) nude-ish shades with maybe a hint of grey.

I used gold foil to add a contrast to the black base colour, and I used water decals to give the mani a halloweeney look. Yes, it’s not Halloween yet, but doing several Halloween manis throughout the month of October is simply more fun.
