Nail Of The Day – Essence Shine Last & Go 47 Forget The Rules & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53

Hi there! Happy Monday! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Shine Last & Go 47 Forget The Rules (2 coats). This is a great slimey green shade. It’s perfect for Halloween-themed manis. 🎃👻

For the images I used my MoYou London Festive 53 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

If this mani looks familiar, this is because I’ve done similar manis in the past. 🙂

Revlon CustomEyes 010 Sweet Innocence, NYC Metro Quartet Eyeshadow 816A Chelsea Chic

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 small eyeshadow compacts – Revlon CustomEyes 010 Sweet Innocence and NYC Metro Quartet Eyeshadow 816A Chelsea Chic. Let’s take a look at Revlon CustomEyes 010 Sweet Innocence first!

Sweet Innocence is a cute looking little compact. The 5 shades are dark grey, peachy nude, champagne, dusty plum and vintage pink.

I’ve done a few looks with this palette, but I found the quality of the eyeshadows to be poor. They were chalky, it was impossible to build them up, and they didn’t blend.

After the disappointing experience with the Revlon eyeshadows, I tried NYC Metro Quartet Eyeshadow 816A Chelsea Chic.

This little eye palette contains 4 shades: a pale gunpowder, a medium chocolate brown, a frosty baby pink, and a light brown tinted grey.

I’ve done a few looks with this eyeshadows as well, and I think that the pale gunpowder and the brownish grey were alright. The chocolate brown shade was extremely chalky, and I didn’t care for the frosty pink.

Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend these small eye palettes (or compacts). I found them at some bargain store (Poundland?), so at least I didn’t spend much money on them.

The cute glitter top coat I used on the pink nails is Essence Colour & Go 105 Party Princess.

Nail Of The Day – Revlon 608 Emerald & Stamping With MoYou London Sailor 07 (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did last week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 608 Emerald (2 coats). I love this polish. It’s almost a one-coater, it dries quickly, and the colour is amazing! Great stuff, Revlon

For the images I used my MoYou London Sailor 07 stamping plate. The polish I stamped with is Revlon Expressionist 330 Silhouette. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the best choice.

I was hoping to see golden fish and shells, but it didn’t work out. All in all, this was a rather forgettable attempt at a marine mani.

Nail Of The Day – Feat. Rimmel, Revlon & Pict You (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. It’s also a Nail Fail!

For this mani I painted my nails with the white Revlon polish that’s part of Revlon’s double-ended neon polishes. The white polish is chalky and streaky. You can see it in the photo even though I used plenty of top coat.

I double-stamped – and the results weren’t great either. The polishes I used are Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette. The stamping plate is Pict You PY-J034.

Ah well… better manis will follow soon!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Nail Art Neon White, Essence Out Of Space Stories 01 Outta Space Is The Place & Stamping With Pict You PY-PJ034

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

For this mani I painted my nails with my white Revlon Nail Art Neon nail polish (2 coats) and Essence Out Of Space Stories 01 Outta Space Is The Place (1 coat). The Essence polish added a nice pearly shine to the white base.

For the images I used my fairly new Pict You-PY-J034 stamping plate and a random black Rimmel polish.

I liked this mani a lot. And that was because of the amazing images on this particular stamping plate. I can’t wait to use it again!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Matte Suede 863 Ruby Ribbon & Gold Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Matte Suede 863 Ruby Ribbon (2 coats). This is one of my oldest unloved polishes. 😄 When I bought it, I had no idea what matte suede even meant in terms of nail polish.

When I used this polish for the first time, I was disappointed because it dried down to a matte and streaky mess. It was incredibly ugly.

Now back to today’s mani! I used gold foil to give the plain burgundy shade some sparkle. And 1 coat of clear polish added extra shine. I liked this mani – and I will do more foil manis over the next few weeks.

Nail Of The Day – Technic Double Trouble Midsummer & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 721

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Technic Double Trouble Midsummer (2 easy coats).

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 721 stamping plate.

I double-stamped! I used a random black polish and my shiny Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette nail art polish.

I really liked this mani! But it was no surprise. This shade of purple (I call it milky purple) is my favourite nail colour. And I love double-stamping!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Nail Art Neon 140 Pink Glow & Gold Foil

Hi there! Since this week is Nail Week, I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Nail Art Neon 140 Pink Glow – 2 coats of the white polish and 3 coats of the coral polish.

Wait, what? 5 coats of polish? Yes! The white polish was very streaky, and the coral polish was super thin. Awful!

Once dry, the coral polish felt and looked strangely chalky. Yikes! So how could I save the mani? With gold foil – wedged between 2 coats of clear polish!

I did like the look of the mani, and I wore it for 4 days because of the time (drying time) and effort (8 coats of polish) I spent on it.

What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Play Date, Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette, Glitter & Stamping With Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 720

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Play Date (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats) and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette (the beige one – middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

The subtle gold glitter on the pinkies and ring fingers is Essie As Gold As It Gets.

For the images on the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used a random black nail polish. The stamping plate is Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 720. A quick note in case you’re wondering: Bundle Monster is now Maniology.

I liked this mani. It was a mix of 2 manis which – on their own – would have bored me senseless in less than a day. But I did like the mix!
