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 – Feat. Revlon, Ciaté, MUA & Manhattan / A-Z Nail Art Challenge G-Galaxies

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about the Galaxies mani that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria.

And then I used small pieces of a retired make-up sponge to apply a number of different nail polishes.

I used these colours: MUA White Wash (white), Revlon Colorstay 040 Provence (pale lavender) & Manhattan Buffalo 18 (milky lilac).

And then I just applied one coat of Ciaté Confetti, which is a beautiful silver holo glitter topper.

I think this mani turned out great. I love it! What do you think? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. 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 – Essence Colour Boost 09 Instant Passion & Foils / A-Z Nail Art Challenge D-Diva Nails

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

This mani is also my attempt at Diva Nails which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge which I’m doing for no one but myself!

I just wanted to do plain dark red nails, but I was bored of the simple mani before the polish had dried. So I kept thinking… now what? Then I had an idea – foils!

So… I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 09 Instant Passion (1 coat). And I used some leftover gold foil to add a little sparkle to my nails. Then one coat of clear polish – job done! 🙂

I really liked this quick and easy to do mani. What do you think? Feel free to let me know your thoughts. 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! 🙂

100% Cruelty-Free – Superdrug De-Stressing Mud Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s De-Stressing Mud Mask.

This product promises a deep and purifying cleanse. At the same time the mask also promises to relax your mind.

I think this mask is alright. It’s considerably thinner than all the other Superdrug clay or mud masks that I’ve tried, but it gets the job done.

The mask smells soapy, it has a minty colour, and it’s quite similar to Anatomicals’ Mattifying Face Mask. It may actually be the exact same product. 🙂

Superdrug’s De-Stressing Mud Mask. is 100% cruelty-free. It’s BUAV-approved, and it’s suitable for vegetarians. And it’s 99p only!
