Nail Of The Day – Sinful Colors Blue La La, Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon, Maybelline Colorshow 654 Superpower Blue & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today. And it’s another marine mani!

For this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats, pinkies, middle fingers), Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon (2 coats, ring fingers), and Maybelline Colorshow 654 Superpower Blue (2 coats, index fingers, thumbs).

I used MoYou London‘s super cute Doodles 07 stamping plate.

As almost always, I used drugstore polishes as my stamping polishes: Maybelline Colorshow 654 Superpower Blue (pinkies, middle fingers), Orly Snow Cone (index fingers, thumbs), and Revlon 902 Craving Coral (ring fingers).

I like this mani. It’s not my best marine mani, but it looks cute, so what’s not to like? Do you like marine manis? Feel free to get in touch. By the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue & Stamping With Sugar Bubbles SB 031

Hi there! Today’s post is about a cute marine-themed mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue (2 coats).

The colour looks nice, but I really don’t like this polish at all. It stains badly. I should use it as a stamping polish only – this should be OK.

Anyway, since I already had a dark blue base, I decided to do (another) marine-themed mani. So I used Sugar Bubbles‘ cute SB 031 stamping plate.

And I double-stamped with Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold).

I really like this mani. It’s like… the sea, marine creatures and sunlight. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova / A-Z Nail Art Challenge M – Movie

Hi there! Today’s NOTD post is about a mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. It’s for M – Movie!

The movie that inspired this mani is Pretty In Pink (with ♥ James Spader ♥).

Alrighty! For this mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish. It’s a dream to work with.

The glitter I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

This is my favourite glitter topper. It looks sensational, it dries quickly, it feels perfectly smooth, (no stand-offish glitter particles), and it makes my nails feel super strong. I love it!

I really liked this mani. It was simple and pretty. Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! Today’s nail of the day post is about a mani I did a little while ago. I didn’t love the mani, so I wasn’t sure whether to do a post or not… well, here we are!

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam (2 coats). I don’t like this polish. The colour is a mix of blue, green and gold and it has a metallic (almost foil) finish. It’s a mess.

Then I thought that double-stamping might save the mani. (It didn’t work!) I used Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Revlon Briliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold) to stamp images onto my nails. The stamping plate I used is MoYou‘s super cute Doodles 07 plate.

I really didn’t like this mani. Quite a few ladies at work told me how much they loved this particular mani (?). However, it’s definitely one of my least favourite manis of 2017.

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / China Glaze Red Satin, Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green & Orly Hair Band / A-Z Nail Art Challenge J – Joy To The World

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

For this Christmas-themed mani I painted my nails with China Glaze Red Satin (ring and middle fingers, thumbs) and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (ring and index fingers).

I love these 2 polishes because the colours are 100% christmassey, and the polishes are of great quality. Aesome stuff!

The top coat is Orly Hair Band (1 coat) which is my favourite gold glitter top coat.

It’s packed with glitter, it dries quickly and the glitter lays flat which means that my nails feel super smooth.

I’m very happy with this mani! I do this mani every year, and I still love the red+green+gold look. I’ve also decided to make this mani part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. I’ll file it under J – Joy To The World. 🙂 How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night, Stamping & Water Decals

Hi there! Today’s post is about another Christmas-themed mani I did a couple of days ago.

I started by painting my nails with Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night (2 coats).

I love this polish. The formula is a dream to work with, and the colour is stunning.

I used my new unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate and Orly Snow Cone (which is my favourite light blue polish) to stamp images onto my nails.

The stamping plate isn’t the best because the images didn’t transfer perfectly. However, no one gets that close to my nails in real life. So no one noticed. 🙂

I used water decals on my ring fingers to make the mani look more christmassey, and I think it worked! By the way, I’m sorry about those blue splotches in the image. I don’t know where they came from. It can only be a technical issue with the camera. It’s just unfortunate that I didn’t notice it until I wrote the post. And now I’m already 2 coats of polish into a new mani…

All in all I’m happy with this mani. Whilst the stamped images didn’t turn out to be perfect, I still think this mani looks really nice. I also love the blue + light blue + red theme because it’s different from all those standard red/green/gold and blue/silver manis.

What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a while back. I really liked this mani, so I’m not sure why I left it for so long…

Anyway, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria (ring fingers), and Orly Liquid Vinyl (middle fingers).

I used Orly Snow Cone (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Orly Liquid Vinyl (ring fingers) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 310 Gilty Pleasure (middle fingers) as my stamping colours.

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 55 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

This mani is my interpretation of the Inspired By A Colour challenge which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. The colour in question is, obviously, blue. 🙂
