Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 201 & Stamping with Pueen 73

Astor 201 PLUS Pueen 73Hi there! I tried another new Astor nail polish the other day. I couldn’t warm up to the colour at all, so I decided to do what I did the last time I didn’t like my mani – I spruced it up with a floral pattern.

But let’s start from the beginning. I’m wearing two coats of Astor Fashion Studio 201, a dusty pink which doesn’t suit my skin tone at all. It was 50p only, so it wasn’t much of a financial loss. 🙂

This time I chose another floral stamping plate, Pueen 73 from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection. In case you’re wondering, the black polish is Revlon Colorstay.

I’m really enjoying stamping again. I’ve got a lot of stamping plates, so be prepared for more nail posts in the future. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 242 Aqua Leaf & Stamping with Pueen 72

Astor Aqua Leaf PLUS Pueen 72Hi there! Here’s another quick nail post. My nails have recovered since I filed them down after breaking one a couple of weeks ago – this usually means that disaster is about to strike again…

But in the meantime I can paint and stamp as I like. 🙂 I’m now wearing Astor Fashion Studio 242 Aqua Leaf. This polish is quite thick so it wasn’t as easy to apply as I hoped. So yeah, it didn’t look right.

On top of that I woke up to streaks and sheet marks (I blame the hot weather) so I had to do something.

I thought stamping would be the easiest option, so I chose a random black nail polish and one of my Pueen stamping plates, Pueen 72 from Pueen’s first Stamping Buffet collection, to cover up the sheet marks.

It’s not perfect, but if you don’t stare at my nails for too long, you’ll probably agree that this mani doesn’t look too bad considering how horrible my nails looked when I woke up. Plus: I’ve learnt that all-over stamping is a great idea when you have little time to fix your mani properly.
