Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 004 Deliciously Violet & L’Oréal Color Riche Top Coat Tweed 917 Jackie Tweed (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani that I did a few months ago. I thought the mani would look awesome – but it didn’t. So I only for it for a day.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 004 Deliciously Violet (2 coats). I’d describe the shade as a violet-tinted grey. It’s not my favourite colour, but I bet it’s a great base colour for stamping.

Actually, I wanted to stamp (I should have done that!), but I also wanted to try L’Oréal’s Color Riche Top Coat Tweed 917 Jackie Tweed. I went for the fuzzy top coat – and it was the wrong choice.

Nail fails happen. Onto the next mani! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 229 Soft Hydrangea, Rimmel 60 Seconds 323 Don’t Be Shy, Essie Rock At The Top & Nail Decals

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 229 Soft Hydrangea (middle fingers, 2 coats) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 323 Don’t Be Shy (ring fingers, 2 coats).

I used floral nail decals on my pinkies, index fingers and thumbs. I could have used a clear polish to seal the decals, but I went for a glitter top coat = Essie Rock At The Top.

I really liked this mani. The pink and the fuchsia nail colours looked nice together, and the decals and the glitter topper looked cute together as well. I can’t wait to do another mani using water decals! 🙂

Have you ever tried water decals for your mani? What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment. Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 201 & Stamping With Pueen 107

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 201 (2 coats). This is a great little polish. I was impressed with the quality because the polish dried quickly and it was opaque in 2 easy coats. In addition, I really like the unusual colour!

For the stamping I used a random black nail polish (can’t remember which one, but it wasn’t one of the usual suspects) and Pueen‘s 107 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection).

The images weren’t perfect, but I did like the mani! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 229 Soft Hydrangea & Stamping With Pueen 51

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 229 Soft Hydrangea (2 coats). I love this colour. It’s stunningly beautiful!

I also decided to stamp! I used Pueen‘s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize.

I really liked this mani. I love the bright and powerful base colour, and I think the golden images add to the summery feel of this mani.

What nail colour are you wearing right now? Feel free to get in touch! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven, Astor Perfect Stay Velvet Effect 610 Sensual Candle & Stamping With Pueen 81

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 610 Sensual Candle (2 coats, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (2 coats, ring and middle fingers).

The Astor polish is truly unique. It doesn’t really feel like velvet, but it feels sensationally smooth.

I used Pueen‘s 81 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection). I tend to ignore stamping plates with funny shapes, but I’m glad I gave this one a try. I like the image! Oh, and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 370 Uptempo Plum. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio Acid Drop & Stamping With Pueen 74

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 006 Acid Drop (2 coats).

I like this polish! The cucumber shade looks fresh (great for spring and summer manis), and I like the micro-shimmer.

I also think this is a good polish. It dries quickly and it’s perfect in 2 coats – I didn’t expect this because of the light colour, but I’m not complaining. 😉

I stamped with Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House. And the stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection.

I think this mani looks alright. The images on the index and ring fingers didn’t stamp perfectly (it’s the same on my left hand). But all in all, I think this is a nice little mani that’s perfect to welcome spring!

What do you think of green manis? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy & Stamping With Pueen 77 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge L – Love

Hi there! Today’s post is about my Valentine’s Day mani. Quite late, huh?

Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

I decided to double-stamp, and I used 2 non-stamping polishes for this – Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold) and NYC In A Minute 230 Penn Station (red).

I think this mani was alright. It was nothing special, but it looked cute. And I really liked the double-stamping effect!

This mani goes in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file it under LLove! How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂
