Nail Of The Day – Primark Holler & Glow Pink Unicorn, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Ciaté Putting On The Ritz & Stamping With MoYou London Suki 16

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark Holler & Glow Pink Unicorn (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats). This polish is described as a long wear polish. And guess what, it is! I “use” my nails a lot, and I only had very minor tip wear after 3 days. Truly impressive stuff!

I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats) on my middle and index fingers and my thumbs. This is supposed to be a long-lasting polish too, but I had to fill in the tips every day.

For the images I used MoYou London‘s Suki 16 plate and (since it was right there) Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

The gold glitter topper I used is the gorgeous Ciaté Putting On The Ritz which has been sititing in my stash for ages. Yes, I regret not trying it sooner!

I liked this mani. Since I had zero inspiration, it was supposed to be a “filler mani”, but it turned out much better than expected.

What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 557 Yes Sir! & Stamping With Pueen 92

Hi there! Here’s the last Nail Of The Day post for the week. This means that Nail Week is now finished. Well, almost. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 557 Yes Sir! (2 coats). This is a great polish. It dries reasonably quickly, and the formula is a dream.

I’ve used a stamping plate that I’ve never used before – Pueen‘s 92 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s brilliant Buffet Leisure collection).

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

This is another mani that was inspired by boredom but looked much nicer than expected. Well, I’m not complaining. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 860 Bestival Blue, NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-719

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a long time ago. I think this one’s from last summer! Oops!

Ayhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 860 Bestival Blue (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry (2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

I wanted glitter, but I also wanted to stamp so… the pretty glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti.

I used Bundle Monster‘s BM-719 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster‘s amazing Secret Garden stamping plate collection).

I didn’t like this mani very much. It’s not a complete fail, but I expected it to look much better. Ah well…

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora, Sinful Colors Blue LaLa & Stamping With MoYou London Sailor 06

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

Whilst this mani looked great in real life, it didn’t look great in any of the photos I took. Based on the photo, you’re forgiven for thinking it was a nail fail.

Alright… for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora (2 coats, pinkies and ring fingers). This is one of the textured (= rough) glitter polishes that were the rage a few years ago.

For the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats).

I decided to stamp. The marine-themed stamping plate I used is MoYou London Sailor 06.

The gold stamping polish is Sally Hansen Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou London, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 066 Cranberry Zest & Accessorize Bewitched

Hi there! This is another mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 066 Cranberry Zest (2 coats). This is a gorgeous colour. It reminds me of Revlon’s Cherries In The Snow!

When I painted my nails, I realised that this polish is one of Rimmel’s scented polishes. I think scented polishes usually smell awful, but this (cranberry-scented) one was actually quite alright.

The flakie top coat I used is Accessorize Bewitched. This is a low quality top coat. I had to apply 2 thick coats to achieve an acceptable finish.

Having said that, I do think that this mani looked cute. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch & Stamping With Pueen 107

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch (2 coats). This polish is from Rimmel’s by Kate collection, and it’s pretty much a one-coater. This is a fantastic polish. 50p (!) very well spent!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 107 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s sensational Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The light green stamping polish is MoYou London‘s Little Pickle. Whilst this polish stamps well, it stains terribly. It stains worse than some of those dark blue polishes that give you “smurf hands” upon removal. I would never have expected this from such a light colour…

Anyway… I did like this mani. It wasn’t the most special mani, but it looked quite cool without being over the top. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet & China Glaze Black Mesh

Hi there! This is another mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet (2 coats). I’m not a big fan of the colour orange, but this is, without doubt, my favourite orange polish because it’s a great base colour for stamping (evidence here and here).

However, this time I didn’t stamp. I found a few special effect top coats in my stash, like this one – China Glaze Black Mesh.

A few years ago this kind of crackle or shatter top coat was the rage. I didn’t care for these top coats, but when they hit the Poundstores, I picked up a few colours to play with.

Needless to say, I didn’t do too many manis using these special effect top coats… However, I want to make an effort to use unloved products too. And that’s why I ended up with this mani. I think this mani looked kind of cool. Ugly but cool. Cool in its own little ugly way. 🙂
