Nail Of The Day – Nail Art Challenge #30 Inspired By A Tutorial

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. This mani is for challenge #30 Inspired By A Tutorial.

I was looking for cute and summery mani ideas online – and I found an easy looking tutorial for melon nails.

I tried to recreate those melon nails but, of course, I failed miserably. So I came up with a much easier melon mani (well, sort of).

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (pinky, ring and middle fingers, 2 coats) and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 50 In Record Lime (index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

I applied loose black glitter hexagons (the only black glitter I have) to my middle fingers, and I top-coated all my nails with Orly Love Each Other.

I think this mani turned out alright. I have zero (nail) art skills, I can’t even draw a straight line. However, I’m proud of myself for coming up with a simple ‘solution’. So whilst the mani didn’t turn out the way I hoped, I was inspired by a tutorial. So somehow I actually nailed this challenge! Now wait for my interpretation of kiwi nails! 😀

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With Pueen 77

Orly Basket Case Pueen 77Hi there! After yesterday’s ugly mani post, today’s NOTD is easier on the eyes.

For this mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish – it dries quickly, it’s opaque in two coats, and the formula is a dream to work with.

The images I stamped on are featured on Pueen’s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

This mani wasn’t a favourite (I did it a while ago). That’s because I didn’t take the time to actually select the images that would go on my nails, and I even messed up the image on the index finger. That’s what you get when you stamp all your nails in about 60 seconds…

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Pueen, Rimmel, Revlon, W7, Orly & Filthy Gorgeous / Nail Art Challenge #21 Inspired By A Colour

Pueen 72Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. And this mani is another one that counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

So today’s mani is my entry for challenge #21 Inspired By A Colour. Obviously, this colour is blue. 🙂

I painted my thumb, middle finger and pinky with Rimmel 60 Seconds 231 Blue Eyed Girl (2 coats).

And I painted my index and ring fingers with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry (2 coats).

Then I applied one coat of W7 96 Mosaic to my accent nail (ring finger).

The images I stamped on are from Pueen’s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

And I used the following nail polishes to stamp on the images:
Orly Snowcone (pinky and thumb),
Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (middle finger),
Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (index finger)

I think this mani turned out great. I like the colours that I picked, I love the glitter accent, and I think the images are almost perfect. Do you agree? Feel free to tell me what you think. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Nails Inc. Chelsea & Stamping With Pueen 93 And Orly Snowcone

Nails inc chelsea orly snowcone pueen 93Hi there! After two skin care posts I thought it’s time for a nail post again. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Nails Inc. Chelsea. This polish is a very dark black cherry shade. It’s almost black. And I can’t blame people for thinking Chelsea is a black polish.

Since the dark colour started to bore me just minutes after I’d painted my nails, I decided to stamp again.

I chose Pueen’s 93 stamping plate (from Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection), and I opted for a large floral image which I stamped on with the most wonderful (light) blue non-stamping polish that stamps perfectlyOrly Snowcone. It’s a gorgeous polish, isn’t it?

I’m very happy with this mani. I just love the blue images – the floral pattern is pretty and the blue polish looks so fresh! Do you agree? Feel free to let me know what you think. 🙂 And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Orly Terra Mauve & Stamping With Pueen 77

Orly Terracotta Pueen 77Hi there! This year I forgot to do a sweet love-themed mani for Valentine’s Day. But now, a few months later, I had an idea for a cute heart-themed mani.

At first I painted my nails with Orly Terra Mauve – a sensationally beautiful colour.

I went through my stamping plates and I chose Pueen‘s 77 plate from Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

I didn’t want to stamp with white this time, so I checked my non-stamping polishes that stamp brilliantly on darker colours stash.

I picked Essence Wave Goddess 01 – a limited edition pink polish from last year (or even 2014) and then I stamped away. 🙂

This mani turned out quite nice, I think. I’m really happy with the colours and the images. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thank you for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping

062016 Orly Basket Base and StampingHi there! When I did the stamping tutorial last week, I didn’t just do one nail. I did a full mani. And since I’ve finally found the picture I took of my nails, I thought I’d do a post. 🙂

I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case – which is one of the most beautiful pink polishes I have. It’s bright, it has a cool undertone and it’s a fantastic summer colour.

I stamped several random images from several different stamping plates onto my nails. All those plates were unbranded ones.

The black polish I used to stamp with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil which I’ve been stamping with a lot lately.

This post concludes ‘nail week’ – so next week I’ll go back to posting product reviews (with the weekly nail post thrown in). However, I hope you enjoyed ‘nail week’ – I certainly did.

As always, feel free to let me know what you think of this mani. Or comment if you’d just like to chat. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Underwater Mani – Featuring Max Factor, Orly, Pueen & Sugar Bubbles

Marine Mani with Orly and Max FactorHi there! I’ve done a few underwater-themed manis in the past few months – and I haven’t run out of ideas for even more underwater-themed manis. So here’s another one! 🙂

I painted my nails with Max Factor Glossfinity 140 Cobalt Blue. This is a really nice polish – it’s basically opaque in one coat!

I selected images from two stamping plates – Sugar Bubbles SB 031 (pinky, ring finger) and Pueen 91 (middle and index fingers) from Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

The light blue polish I used to stamp on the images is Orly Snowcone. It’s not a real stamping polish but it stamps so well that I’ll use it for stamping only from now on.

I think this mani turned out even better than I hoped. I really love it. Please feel free to tell me what you think. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
