Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sonic Bloom & Gosh Cracked Nail Lacquer 04 Gold (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post. And it’s also a Nail Fail.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sonic Bloom (1 coat). This polish is a true one-coater. It’s amazing!

The crackle polish I used is Gosh Cracked Nail Lacquer 04 Gold. This crackle polish is awful! I applied it well over an hour after I had applied the base colour.

The base colour was 100% dry. However, the crackle polish still managed to somehow suck some of the base colour off of my nails, leaving my nails with “bald spots”. I’m sure you can tell that I was not impressed!

I’m not going to use this crackle top coat again. I have another one from the same brand, but I’m not really looking forward to giving that one a try!

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Rocket & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL217

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Rocket (2 coats).

I love Barry M’s entire Molten Metal collection – it’s just 4 polishes in total, but they’re all holographic!

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) BM-XL217 stamping plate. I like this stamping plate a lot. It has plenty of beautiful floral and botanical images.

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

Nail Of The Day – MUA Love Hearts U ROK & Colors By Llarowe Madame Vastra

Hi there! Today’s short post is about the mani I’m currently wearing.

For this mani I painted my nails with MUA Love Hearts U ROK (2 coats). This is a quick-drying and cute light purple polish. I like it a lot!

The top coat I used is Colors By Llarowe Madame Vastra. This is a gorgeous flakie top coat. Gorgeous! The photo doesn’t do it any justice at all.

I’ll do another mani with this top coat soon. And I’ll take photos during the day in natural light.

I like this mani a lot. It looks incredible in real life. Purple + flakies = LOVE!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim & Stamping With MoYou London & Nicole Diary (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about the mani I did over the weekend.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (2 coats). I like this polish a lot. It’s a beautiful blue!

For the images I used my MoYou London Scandi Sun stamping polish. It doesn’t work very well with every stamping plate – as you can see here.

I used 2 different stamping plates – Nicole Diary 024 and MoYou London Zodiac Collection 03 Aries.

If you don’t look too closely, the mani looks alright, but I do look closely all the time, so… next!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven & Ciaté Snow Globe (Nail Fail)

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (2 coat). This is a great polish. I just love the colour and the formula.

The top coat I used is Ciaté Snow Globe. I had high expectations for this top coat, but it turned out to be a disappointment. It’s on the goopy side, there aren’t many flakies in this top coat, and those few that make it onto the nails are VERY stand-offish, so they get caught in everything.

I didn’t care for this mani at all… Onto the next one!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim & Ciaté Party Shoes

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

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (2 quick and easy coats). This is a beautiful blue polish. I love the colour and the formula. And despite the intense colour, it doesn’t stain.

The glitter top coat I used it Ciaté Party Shoes (1 coat). This is a so-so top coat. The glitter is actually really cute, but the top coat has a strangely dull finish, so it requires an extra layer of clear polish or regular top coat on top. 🤦‍♀️

All in all, this mani looked alright. My husband liked it a lot, so I have no reason to complain.

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Cabaret & Foils

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

For this mani, which I did about 2 weeks ago, I painted my nails with Ciate Cabaret (2 coats).

I’m not the biggest Ciaté fan, but this colour is really lovely. This particular bottle is finished now – well, there’s about 1ml of goopy polish left, but I can’t do anything with it. 🤷‍♀️

For the colourful accents I used some of my leftover rainbow foil.

I really liked this mani. I even filled in the tips and applied top coat daily to make the mani last longer!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria & Stamping With Nicole Diary 078

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (2 coats). This is one of the best light blue polishes I’ve ever seen. It’s stunning! I’m more than halfway through this bottle, and the polish is getting thicker, but I think I have another bottle – well, at least I hope so!

For the images I used my Nicole Diary-078 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

The mani didn’t look as nice as I hoped. The kitties are cute, but not all images came out great. Ah well…

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 718

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

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

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

The 2 polishes I stamped with are Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold).

I liked this mani a lot – it has purple and black & gold double-stamping which is an all-time favourite look.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Reign Supreme (2 coats). This is an almost black purple shade. Really pretty!

I used a cheap white nail polish (I can’t remember which one) to sponge random white blobs onto my nails.

Then I sponged pink and purple nail polish on top of the white blobs – I used Ciaté Kiss Chase (pink), Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (milky purple) and Ciaté Reign Supreme (purple).

The glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 450 Ice Pop.

This isn’t my best galaxy mani, but I haven’t done any in a while, so it’s not too bad. I do need practice though!
