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! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Underwater Mani – Colourful Nails & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

Doodles PlateHi there! Today’s post is about the mani I did the other day. I got myself a few new stamping plates – with one of them being MoYou London’s Doodles 07 plate. So I thought I’d do a colourful (blue, white, orange) underwater mani!

I used these polishes:
Orly Snow Cone (base colour pinky and thumb, stamped image middle finger).
Revlon Red Bikini (stamped image ring finger).
Ciaté Hopscotch (base colour index finger).
Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 704 Sweet As Sugar (base colour middle and ring fingers).
The amazing Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish in White (stamped image index finger, thumb and pinky).

I really love how this mani turned out. And I have a few more ideas on what to do with this stamping plate. 🙂 A note to myself: Orly Snow Cone and Revlon Red Bikini stamped really well!

If you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link. In case you’re wondering… yes, I did purchase this stamping plate myself!

Nail Of The Day – Orly Terracotta & Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat 600 Fuzzy Fantasy

Hi there! I thought after all the face, eye and body products it’s time for a nail post. Yes, I’m a nail nut, too. I know the photo is huge – sorry about that – but I wanted to show off the Fuzzy Coat. 😀 Sooo… today I’m wearing Orly Terracotta (two coats) and Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy (one coat).
Orly Terracotta PLUS Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy
Orly Terracotta is a bright pinkish red; Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy is a clear polish packed with matte green and white glitter strands. At first I wasn’t sure how this combination would turn out, but once the Fuzzy Coat was applied, I thought it looked cute. Mr Strawberryblonde certainly agrees. 🙂
