Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Cabaret & Nfu Oh 51

Hi there! Happy Monday! Today’s post is about a mani I did just last week.

And for this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Cabaret (2 coats).

I’m not the biggest fan of Ciaté. However, they did a good job with this polish. I’m very happy with the colour, the formula and the drying time. Thumbs up!

The beautiful rainbow flakie top coat I used is the one and only Nfu Oh 51.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture its magic in any of the photos I took, but I’ll use it again shortly, so hopefully I’ll be able to take a better picture next time.

Nail Of The Day – Essie Smooth Sailing, Technic Double Trouble Bollywood & Stamping With JQ-L12

Hi there! Happy Monday! Today’s post is about a mani I did just last week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essie Smooth Sailing (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Technic Double Trouble Bollywood (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used the gold glitter top coat from the double-ended Technic Double Trouble Bollywood to add some sparkle to the blue nails.

For the images on the minty nails I used my JQ-L12 stamping plate and a random black polish.

I didn’t like this mani because the stamped images didn’t look right. Ah well, onto the next mani!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This means that Nail Week has come to an end. I’ll be back with a regular product review tomorrow.

But let me tell you about this mani! I painted my nails with Barry M Matte Nail Paint Espresso (2 coats). This is a terrible polish. Tip wear and chips within hours. I had to keep filling in the tips…

I applied blobs of white nail polish with a sponge to make the lighter colours pop.

The blue and pink colours I used are from the double-ended Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 300 Pop Art. The glitter top coat I used is Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion.

This isn’t my best galaxy mani, but it’s not the worst either. I did like the mani. But next time I’ll try it without the blue.

Nail Of The Day – Technic Double Trouble Festival

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good week so far. I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I used one of the double-ended nail polishes I rediscovered when we moved house – Technic Double Trouble Festival. I’m wearing 2 coats of the raspberry polish and 2 coats of the glitter top coat.

I’ve had a number of cheap Technic polishes in the past. They were hit and miss. And with Technic, there is always a risk that the brushes are totally messed up, so you can’t even paint your nails properly… Anyhoo, this polish set is really nice. The raspberry polish is pretty, and the rainbow glitter is super cute.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir, Essie Rock At The Top & Stamping With Nicole Diary 076

Hi there! Welcome to Nail Week. I’ll be posting about manis only until Sunday. Without further ado, here’s the first mani.

Alrighty! For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

The pretty top coat is Essie Rock At The Top (1 coat).

The light blue base on my thumbs, index and middle fingers is a nameless mini nail polish from Claire’s Accessories (3 coats – 2 would have been fine too).

For the images I used my Nicole Diary 076 stamping plate.

I double-stamped using a grey polish (NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day) and a black polish (some old Rimmel polish).

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Today’s post is about a mani I did earlier this month.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used a rainbow glitter top coat to add colour to the grey nails. That cute glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter.

For the images on the blue nails I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 717 stamping plate. I stamped with a random black polish.

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Play Date, Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette, Glitter & Stamping With Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 720

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Play Date (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats) and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette (the beige one – middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

The subtle gold glitter on the pinkies and ring fingers is Essie As Gold As It Gets.

For the images on the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used a random black nail polish. The stamping plate is Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 720. A quick note in case you’re wondering: Bundle Monster is now Maniology.

I liked this mani. It was a mix of 2 manis which – on their own – would have bored me senseless in less than a day. But I did like the mix!

Nail Of The Day – L’Oréal Color Riche 210 Shocking Pink & NYC In A Minute 276 Big City Dazzle

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a while ago. It might have been last summer – oops!

For this mani I painted my nails with L’Oréal Color Riche 210 Shocking Pink. I don’t like the colour pink (any shade of pink) in clothes or accessories, but I love bright pink shades like this one on my nails. 🥰

The glitter top coat I used is NYC In A Minute Big City Dazzle. This glitter looks amazing in real life – it’s in my all-time top 5 of glitters. You have no idea how annoyed I am that I couldn’t capture its magic in the photo. But there’s always next time, so fingers crossed!

Anyhoo… I liked this mani a lot. It was easy to do, and it looked bright and sparkly!

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Full Throttle, Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Glitter & Stamping (Nail Fail)

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Fail post for you today!

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Full Throttle (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used Pop Rocks Groupie to add a touch of glitter to the green nails.

And I used my new PY-J023 stamping plate for the leopard spots. I couldn’t find my beloved black Revlon polish, so I stamped with a random black polish – that’s why the images came out so poorly. Boo!

Onto the next mani!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of purple is my favourite nail colour. 😍

The glitter polish I used is Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion. This is a mix of gold, fuchsia and blue micro glitter in a clear base. I love this kind of glitter!

I like the look of this mani. However, my nails look awful. I cleaned 2 places like a maniac when we moved house, and this took quite a toll on my nails. Rubber gloves couldn’t prevent splits and breakages, although I guess they prevented the worst!
