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 – Boots No.7 Devil’s Delight & Stamping With Pueen 77 / Nail Art Challenge #1 Red Nails

uploadHi there! I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge, and today’s post is about Red Nails (Nail Art Challenge #1).

For this mani I painted my nails with Boots No.7 Devil’s Delight (two coats). I like the formula of this polish. It’s perfect. And the No.7 brush (wide, flat) is great too.

If you know me, you know I can’t just paint my nails and leave it at that. And I think the Nail Art Challenge is worthy of more than just plain red nails.

So I decided to stamp! I chose a cute image from Pueen’s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). The white stamping polish is Essence’s fantastic Stampy Polish.

I’m pleased with this mani and I really like the red and white colour combination. Do you agree? Feel free to let me know what you think. Oh, and the next mani might be ‘inspired by fashion’ (I’m thinking of something…) so let’s see how it goes! And thanks for reading!
