Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 201, Models Own Goose & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. ☺️

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 201 (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs). This is a nice polish. I like that it’s opaque in 2 coats. This was a nice surprise!

For the ring fingers and pinkies I used Models Own Goose (3 coats). I love this cute glitter polish so much!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is part of their Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy, Orly Hair Band, Water Decals & Stamping With Pueen 103

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers).

This is an OK nail polish. I decided to use it for this mani because the bottle is more than half-empty, and I’m thinking I might actually finish this polish!

I used Pueen‘s 103 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto for the images.

I used floral water decals for my ring fingers and pinkies, and I painted 1 coat of Orly Hair Band over them.

I didn’t love the mani, but I did like it. This was a nicer than expected filler mani. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Quick ‘N Go 321 & Stamping With Pueen 76

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Quick ‘N Go 321 (2 coats). I like this colour. It’s really pretty. I’d call it vintage rose.

I used one of my favourite stamping plates – Pueen‘s 76 plate which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection.

The pale orange polish I stamped with is MoYou London Cancun Coral.

I liked this mani. It looked nice without being over the top. I also like the photo. Note to self – take more nail photos at the bus stop! 😁

Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou London, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

My Favourite Manis Of 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite manis of 2018. I stamped like a maniac, I used a lot of glitter, and I did plenty of foil manis. Scroll down if you’d like to know which manis I really liked this year. 🙂

Galaxy Nails
Yellow Nails
Foil Nails

Purple Nails
Halloween Nails
Christmas Nails

Blue Nails
Mixed Nails
Halloween Nails

Foil Nails
Orange Nails
Out Of Space Nails

These were my favourite manis from 2018. I bought more stamping plates, and I have a crazy amount of foils and glitter toppers, so I’m sure 2019 will be a similarly colourful year for nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 612 Devil In Me, Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea & Stamping

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 612 Devil In Me (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers). This polish is matte, and it does feel and look a bit like velvet. I wanted a shiny blue, so I used clear polish to get rid of the matte look.

I painted my ring fingers and pinkies with Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea (3 coats). This is a silver holo polish, but the holo effect isn’t very strong.

I used an unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate (pinkies, middle fingers) as well as MoYou London‘s Hipster 22 plate (index and ring fingers, thumbs).

The polishes I stamped with are Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match (blue) and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pewter (silver).

This is another mani I liked. It wasn’t perfect, but it came pretty close to what I wanted it to look like.

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 004 Deliciously Violet & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM 723

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 004 Deliciously Violet (2 coats). The colour didn’t come out right in the picture. In real life it’s a mix between grey and lilac with tons of micro-shimmer. It’s actually a beautiful colour.

The stamping plate I used is Bundle Monster‘s BM 723 plate which is part of Bundle Monster‘s Secret Garden stamping collection. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

This wasn’t the most spectacular mani, but I think it looked nice.

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 237 Orange Cosmos, Sally Hansen HD Hi-Definition Nail Colour 07 Three D

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I’m filing under Halloween Nail Ideas.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 237 Orange Cosmos (2 coats). This is a nice pale orange shade which would have been perfect for stamping.

However, I decided to do decals! And I wanted a much cooler base colour. So I painted 1 coat of Sally Hansen HD Hi-Definition Nail Colour 07 Three D over the pale orange.

Once the polish was dry, I applied a few halloweeney decals. Then 1 coat of clear polish… job done! 🙂
