Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue, NYC In A Minute 260 Pop Heart, Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova & Stamping With Pueen 119

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

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 260 Pop Heart (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats) and Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

I decided to give the pink nails a bit of sparkle, so I applied 1 coat of the marvellous Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

For the images on the blue nails I used Pueen‘s 119 stamping plate (which belongs to Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Ion & Stamping With Sugar Bubbles 031

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Ion (3 coats). This is a terrible polish. The formula is chalky, the polish takes ages to dry, the polish is prone to chipping, and the colour is just awful. 😧

Nail colours like this one always look best when you see as little as possible of them. And that’s why I decided to stamp!

I used the super beautiful Sugar Bubbles 031 stamping plate. The dark blue polish I stamped with is Filthy Gorgeous Midnight.

Whilst I didn’t love the mani, I think it looked alright. But I do love marine manis, and I think the sea, beach and flip flops theme fits the season. 🙂

Another thing: If you’re wondering how stamping works, I’ve done a tutorial on everything you need to know  – and everything I wish I had known when I started to stamp. Don’t worry, you’ll figure out stamping in an hour, but the tutorial will answer all the questions that you will have about stampers, scrapers, polishes, stamping plates, extra stuff you might need and everything else really! The tutorial is here.

And I also did a post on how I made my own stamping polish. This post can be found here.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid & Double Stamping With Pueen 106

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of milky purple is my favourite nail colour. 🥰

For the images I used Pueen‘s beautiful 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

I decided to double-stamp. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) for the images.

I liked this mani a lot – but I used some of my favourite products, so I knew I’d be happy with the result. 😊

Nail Of The Day – Essence Vintage District 04 Get Arty & Stamping With Pueen 107

Hi there! Here’s another mani that I did a little while ago. This is also one that I consider to be a Nail Fail.

Alright… for this mani I painted my nails with Essence Vintage District 04 Get Arty (3 coats). In the bottle, this is one of the most amazing polishes I’ve ever seen. It’s a colour-shifting grey with plenty of yellow-to-orange-to-red shimmer. Like burning lava. Gorgeous!

However, once the polish is on your nails, it’s nothing but an uninspired khaki. A major disappointment!

Then I stamped – I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms and Pueen‘s 107 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Heirloom & Stamping With Pueen 100 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #8 Metallic Nails

Hi there! This is another Nail Of The Day post. And it’s another mani I did for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. It’s #8 METALLIC NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Heirloom (3 coats). This polish took ages to dry, and it chipped quickly. Terrible quality!

I decided to stamp, and I used Pueen‘s 100 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate set) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

This mani looked amazing in real life, but it was impossible to capture it. I’m not proud of this photo for a number of reasons, but it was actually the best of the bunch I took!

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn, Revlon 510 Sassy, Essie Summit Of Style & Stamping With Maniology Bundle Monster BM-XL217

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (2 coats, pinkies, thumbs and Revlon 510 Sassy (2 coats, middle and ring fingers).

The gold glitter top coat I used on my middle and ring fingers is the gorgeous Essie Summit Of Style.

For the images I used Maniology‘s (formerly Bundle Monster’s) BM-XL217 stamping plate and 3 polishes: Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black), Revlon 510 Sassy (green) and NYC In A Minute 221 Spring Street (coral).

I liked this mani a lot! By the way, this was the first time that I attempted reverse stamping since 2015. I also liked that I could finally take a Nail Of The Day picture in normal daylight again.

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 340 Cinna-Snap & Foils

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

I haven’t done a foil mani in quite some time, so I thought it’s definitely time for one!

So for this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 340 Cinna Snap (2 coats). This is supposed to be a quick-dry polish, but it took ages to dry. Terrible!

I used colourful foils for the accents, and I’m happy with how this mani turned out. Each nail looked truly unique!

If you’ve never done a foil mani but would like to know how to do one, I’ve done a tutorial which you can find here. Supplies are cheap, and it’s super easy to do!
