Nail Of The Day – Revlon 040 Fuchsia Fever, Ciaté Showtime & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL217

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 040 Fuchsia Fever (thumbs, index and middle fingers). This is a great polish. I love the colour, and I’m obsessed with the formula and the quick drying time.

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) BL-XL217 stamping plate.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

On the ring fingers and pinkies I used Ciaté Showtime (3 coats).

I liked the girly look of this mani. However, I didn’t enjoy removing the glitter. It’s normal for glitter top coats and polishes to be a bit more difficult to remove than regular nail polish, but this glitter polish was an absolute nightmare. I think I might have buy peel-off base coat (in case I’ll ever wear this glitter polish again).

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Teeny Greeny Bikini & Stamping With Born Pretty BP-L073

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Teeny Greeny Bikini (3 coats). This is a strange foil-effect polish. Fortunately, the rather unattractive foil-effect is only visible under artificial light. Therefore I took a photo in daylight – much better!

The stamping plate I used is Born Pretty BP-L073. The black polish I stamped with is the amazing Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

All in all, not a bad mani. Not a favourite, but definitely better than the last few!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Top Speed 570 Vintage & Essence Glamaxy Top Coat 34 Glamaxy Far Far Away (Photo Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about the mani I wore over the New Year’s weekend.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 570 Vintage (2 coats). I like this nail polish a lot. It’s a gorgeous red – it’s dark with a touch of wine and plum – it’s so beautiful!

The flakie top coat I used is Essence Glamaxy Top Coat 34 Glamaxy Far Far Away (1 coat).

This top coat is stunning. It’s a shame it doesn’t look great in the photo. Unfortunately, there was hardly any natural light, and this top coat doesn’t photgraph well under artificial light.

But the mani looked great in real life. I’ll redo it in the spring to show off the beautiful top coat in all its glory.

Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 & Pop Rocks Scalper

Hi there! Today’s short post is about a rather simple mani I did a few days ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sport Lasting Colour 500 (2 coats). This is a beautiful shade and a quality polish. It’s a shame that the brand no longer exists.

The glitter top coat I used is Pop Rocks Scalper. This is a red-tinted jelly top coat with silver holographic glitter. I don’t use it much, but it is a cute glitter top coat.

I didn’t love this mani, but it wasn’t much of a surprise as it was a result of not having a single creative thought that day. The mani looked good enough for a few days, and that was OK. But hopefully the next mani will be more original!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 411 Navy Seal & China Glaze Pizzazz

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 411 Navy Seal (2 coats). This is a beautiful navy polish. A bit lighter than most navy shades, almost ‘dusty’. I like this polish very much!

The cute rainbow glitter top coat that I used is China Glaze Pizzazz. This glitter polish is an oldie; it was part of a Christmas set I bought ages ago.

I liked the look of this mani a lot. Unfortunately, it was impossible to capture what the mani actually looked like in real life. None of the photos I took did the mani justice. I will redo it in the spring or summer in natural light.

Nail Of The Day – China Glaze With Love & MakeUp Gallery Rainbow Sparkle 39

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

For this mani I painted my nails with China Glaze With Love (2 coats). This is a decent nail polish. Nice colour and formula! I like it!

The glitter top coat I used is MakeUp Gallery Rainbow Sparkle 39. This is Poundland’s own brand polish, and I like it a lot. It’s such a cute glitter mix!

I think this mani looked quite alright. Because of the current lack of natural light, it was difficult to take half-decent photos, but I promise that the mani looked good in real life!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Matte Suede 507 Fire Fox & Stamping With Pict You PY-J028

Hi there! Today’s post is about this mani I did just a few days ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Matte Suede 507 Fire Fox. I’m not a fan of matte polishes, but I like this bright red shade. And with the help of a regular top coat or clear polish, even the dullest matte polish becomes nice and shiny.

For the images I used the amazing Pict You PY-J028 stamping plate.

The polish I stamped with is Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize.

I liked the look of this mani. And yes, the christmassey look was intentional. 🎅

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 440 Pinch Of Punch & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 718

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 440 Pinch Of Punch (2 coats).

This polish is surprisingly nice. When I did the first coat, the coverage was terrible, and I thought I might need to do 4 coats. So I was very happy when my nails looked perfect after I applied the 2nd coat.

For the images I used my Maniology Secret Garden BM 718 stamping plate.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 605 Purple Reign & Rainbow Foils

Hi there! I hope you had a good weekend! Today’s post is about a mani I did the other week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 605 Purple Reign (2 coats).

This is a beautiful shade of purple. I like it a lot! I’m also very happy with how quickly this polish dries – no complaints here.

I used a some rainbow foil to add some colour to this mani, and I really liked the result.

If you’ve never done foil manis, but would like to give it a try, I did a pictorial which explains the process in 6 easy steps. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect Nail Polish 96S & Stamping With Pict You PY-J034

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect Nail Polish 96S (2 coats). This is a turquoise shade. It’s not the most special polish, but a decent one nonetheless.

For the images I used my Pict You PY-034 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani a lot. I love marble and swirly type of manis, and this one fits right in. I’m also glad I rediscovered this stamping plate. It got lost in my stash, but now that it’s back, it’ll be used again soon!
