Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight & Foils

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did just last month. It’s not the most spectacular mani, and I’ve noticed that the middle finger looks weird in the photo (like there’s a dent in the nail), but it’s too late to take new photos now…

OK, for this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight (1 coat). I like this polish a lot. The colour is gorgeous!

For the colourful effect I used rainbow foils. If you’re wondering how do to foil nails, check out this pictorial. Foil nails are incredibly easy to do!

As I said earlier, this mani was rather unspectacular. I didn’t love it. But it was alright for a few days.

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink & Stamping With Biutee 02

Hi there! I have a short and sweet Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (2 coats). This is a pale rosey shade with micro-shimmer. I’m not a fan of the colour, but it’s a great base colour for stamping!

For the images I used my Biutee 02 stamping plate. I like the Biutee plates a lot. Most of the images are stunningly beautiful. ♥

The black polish I stamped with is, of couse, the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani because it looked nice and summery!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With Nicole Diary ND 076

Hi there! Today’s short post is about a cute mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats). This polish has grown on me over the years. I used to think it’s a filler polish. But now I love it!

For the images I used my new Nicole Diary ND 076 stamping plate. The 2 polishes I stamped with are Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).

I really loved this mani, and I will redo it shortly – maybe with a light blue, lavender or lilac base.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue, NYC In A Minute 260 Pop Heart, Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova & Stamping With Pueen 119

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

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 260 Pop Heart (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats) and Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

I decided to give the pink nails a bit of sparkle, so I applied 1 coat of the marvellous Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

For the images on the blue nails I used Pueen‘s 119 stamping plate (which belongs to Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Astor, Primark & Pop Rocks

Hi there! After yesterday’s Empties post, today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 416 Night Flight (1 coat). Since galaxy nails aren’t about precision or perfection, I thought I could get away with 1 coat – and I did!

Then  I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply small blobs of white polish (Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow).

Once the white polish had dried, I sponged pink (Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy) and blue (Rimmel 60 Seconds 825 Sky High) polish onto the white areas on my nails.

And once the colour polishes had dried, I applied 1 coat of holographic glitter top coat (Pop Rocks With The Band) to add stars to the galaxies.

I liked this mani a lot. Whilst I’ve done better galaxy nails in the past, I did like the addition of a “proper” holo top coat. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did not too long ago. I thought I’d share this summery mani before we have to say goodbye to the summer of ’19.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion (2 coats). I like this polish a lot because the colour is simply gorgeous, and I like Rimmel’s Lycra Pro formula in general.

For the images I used my unbranded FLOWERS 02 stamping plate. I don’t remember which polish I stamped with. I just picked the first black polish I could find because I had trouble locating my black Revlon polish that day. Typical, I know! 🤣

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Ion & Stamping With Sugar Bubbles 031

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Ion (3 coats). This is a terrible polish. The formula is chalky, the polish takes ages to dry, the polish is prone to chipping, and the colour is just awful. 😧

Nail colours like this one always look best when you see as little as possible of them. And that’s why I decided to stamp!

I used the super beautiful Sugar Bubbles 031 stamping plate. The dark blue polish I stamped with is Filthy Gorgeous Midnight.

Whilst I didn’t love the mani, I think it looked alright. But I do love marine manis, and I think the sea, beach and flip flops theme fits the season. 🙂

Another thing: If you’re wondering how stamping works, I’ve done a tutorial on everything you need to know  – and everything I wish I had known when I started to stamp. Don’t worry, you’ll figure out stamping in an hour, but the tutorial will answer all the questions that you will have about stampers, scrapers, polishes, stamping plates, extra stuff you might need and everything else really! The tutorial is here.

And I also did a post on how I made my own stamping polish. This post can be found here.
