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 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 – 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!

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Rocket & Stamping With MoYou London Sailor 07

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Rocket (2 coats). This is such a beautiful holographic polish. It looks amazing when the light hits it.

For the images I used my MoYou London Sailor 07 stamping plate and Revlon Colourstay 270 Stiletto.

Most of the images looked really nice and clear – apart from the image on the middle finger. Ah well, there’s always something… but it was a minor thing, and I still liked this mani!
