Nail Of The Day – Barry M Waikiki & Stamping With Pueen 51 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge E – Exotic

Hi there! Today’s mani is my attempt at Exotic Nails which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Waikiki. I like this polish. Great formula, awesome colour!

I used Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I think this mani is quite pretty. The colour really pops, and I love the images. This stamping plate is one of my favourites, and I’m always happy to use it!

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

Nail Of The Day – Accessorize Oil Slick Rich Gold & Stamping / A-Z Nail Art Challenge A – Animals

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did a while back.

This mani is another one that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. And it’s for the Animals challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Accessorize Oil Slick Rich Gold. This polish is a gold-to-rose duochrome polish. The colour shift is hardly visible in this picture, but in real life it’s quite pretty. 🙂

I used a number of branded and unbranded stamping plates with butterfly images.

The black polish I stamped with is my trusted Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I think this mani is actually quite. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Blue Gradient Nails Feat. Ciaté, Rimmel & NYC / A-Z Nail Art Challenge B-Blue

Hi there! It’s Nail Week and, obviously, I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

I did a pink-to-red gradient mani a couple of months ago, so I thought I might as well try a blue gradient mani. 🙂

I used the following nail products:
Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 704 Sweet As Sugar (pinkies),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (ring fingers),
NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue (middle fingers),
Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (index fingers and thumbs),
Ciaté Party Shoes (glitter topper).

I really liked the mani. The colours I chose weren’t perfect, but I was still happy with this mani. Do you agree? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy, Essence Glitter Jewels 03 Glitz & Glam, Orly Liquid Vinyl And Stamping With Pueen

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a random mani that I did a while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy. The black base on the accent nail is Orly Liquid Vinyl. The glitter is Essence Glitter Jewels 03 Glitz & Glam.

I stamped with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Pueen’s 54 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

I didn’t like the colour combo, and I’ve never liked this stamping plate (I’ve never used it before). So, I didn’t like this mani. But it was OK for the 2 days that I wore it.

Onto new (and better) nail adventures! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nail Art Ideas / Primark PS… 18 Strobe, Boots 17 Red & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge N – Nocturnal Creatures

Hi there! Today I’ve got another Halloween nail art idea for you. 🙂

Last year I did a bats on blood mani. I really loved that mani, and I was thinking about doing the same mani again.

However, I also wanted to use one of my newest stamping plates, so I went for a cute bats on blood mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… 18 Strobe. This is a great white polish that I really need to stock up on!

I used Boots 17 Red and a small piece of a make-up sponge for the blood effect.

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go. I used 2 stamping plates – a random unbranded plate (small bats) and MoYou London‘s brand new Festive 53 plate (big bats) which is packed with cute images.

Oh, by the way, this mani counts towards the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This is my interpretation of the Nocturnal Creatures challenge. 🙂

If you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link. Oh, in case you’re wondering… yes, I did purchase this stamping plate (and the other new ones) myself!

Now… how do you like this mani? I think it’s awesome. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nail Art Ideas / Revlon Brilliant Strength 190 Entice, Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer, Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven & Water Decals

Hi there! 2 weeks ago I told you that I’d be doing a couple of Halloween Nail Art Ideas posts this month. So today I’m showing you another Halloween-themed mani that I did recently. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Brilliant Strength 190 Entice. This is a great quality polish. Great formula, great brush (flat, wide). Good job, Revlon!

I used a small piece of a cosmetic sponge to apply yellow (Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer) and purple (Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven) splashes of colour.

But the best things about this mani are the water decals (which I bought last year).

I think this mani looks really cute! It’s clearly Halloween-themed, but it’s not orange, it’s not gory, there aren’t any pumpkins or witches… I think this kind of mani would be perfect for everyone who wants to do a Halloween-themed mani that doesn’t look too standard, but that’s still easy to do.

How do you like this mani? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 238 MoMa & Stamping With Pueen 65

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

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 238 MoMa (2 coats).

And I stamped with Pueen’s 65 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I think this mani looks alright. But I don’t love it because the pink polish turned out to be darker than expected. I wanted a pale pink, but I got a bright pink…

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