Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 120 Red Carpet, Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust & Water Decals / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #1 Red Nails

Hi there! Happy Monday! This week’s going to be NAIL WEEK, so I’ll be posting about manis only.

I’ve also decided to redo the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I’ve done it before (I’ve completed it in summer 2017), and I want to do it again – but on my own terms. I won’t be doing 31 manis in 31 Days, but over the next couple of months.

I might also skip a few individual challenges and replace them with something else, but I’ll try not to pick and choose too much. 🙂

Alright! For this mani, which is challenge #1 RED NAILS, I painted my nails (pinkies, ring fingers) with Revlon Colorstay 120 Red Carpet (2 coats).

I used water decals on my thumbs, index and middle fingers. I tore one of the decals, and another one ended up looking very wrinkly. So I decided to cover up the mistakes with glitter. I chose Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust.

I liked this mani, and I am looking forward to using decals more often. Just a few weeks ago I bought around 130 sheets of nail decals, so I better use them! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight & Stamping With MoYou London Animals 05

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight (2 coats). I love this polish (I love quite a few Revlon Colorstay polishes because they’re awesome).

I used my (relatively new) MoYou London Animals 05 plate – which I bought because it has a number of marine images. I own several stamping plates with marine images, and I’ve done quite a few marine manis over the years – and I know I’ll be doing many more!

The light blue polish I stamped with is Orly Snow Cone. It’s not a stamping polish, but it stamps perfectly. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! Today’s post is not only the last post this week, but it’s also the last post this Nail Week.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (2 coats). This is a pretty peachy-pink shade with microshimmer galore. It’s not my favourite nail colour, but it looks amazing in the sun!

I thought that a few simple rosey images would look nice with this base colour, so I chose Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

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

Nail Of The Day – Fearne Lola Lavender & Stamping With Pueen 73

Hi there! I have another Nail Of The Day post for you today. This mani is from last summer, but I hated the photos I took (it was too sunny), so I never bothered to crop and resize them – until now. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Fearne Lola Lavender (2 coats). This is a gorgeous colour. I love it!

I decided to double-stamp. I used my Pueen 73 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and two colour polishes – Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).

In theory, this should have been an awesome mani, but it was just about OK.

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Sarong Wrap & Stamping With Pueen 83 (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Nail Week is still on, so here’s another mani I did some time ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark‘s PS… Snow White nail polish (1 coat). Once the white base had dried, it was time for Models Own Sarong Wrap (2 coats). Sarong Wrap is a low-quality polish. It’s terribly thin, and I don’t think I would have gotten much (or any) joy from it had I not started with a white base.

Anyhoo… I thought that light pink accents would look nice, so I used a small piece of a makeup sponge to apply pink polish to my nails. Well, it didn’t look great, but I didn’t have the time to correct the mistake, so I just left it as it was.

Then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 83 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and Revlon Top Speed 880 Black Star.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Revlon & More

Hi there! A few weeks ago I did a galaxy mani. It wasn’t my favourite galaxy mani, but I have to say that I still liked how it turned out.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply blobs of Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White to my nails.

I used a few colour polishes (and more small make-up sponge pieces) for the accents: Collection 2000 Hot Looks 30 Sherbet Lemons (yellow), Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon (pale turquoise), and NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (pink).

The beautiful glitter top coat is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova – which happens to be my all-time favourite glitter top coat!

Do you like galaxy nails? Have you tried to do galaxy nails? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy, Orly Hair Band, Water Decals & Stamping With Pueen 103

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers).

This is an OK nail polish. I decided to use it for this mani because the bottle is more than half-empty, and I’m thinking I might actually finish this polish!

I used Pueen‘s 103 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto for the images.

I used floral water decals for my ring fingers and pinkies, and I painted 1 coat of Orly Hair Band over them.

I didn’t love the mani, but I did like it. This was a nicer than expected filler mani. 🙂
