Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House & Barry M Jingle Bells

Hi there! This week’s going to be Nail Week. This means that I’ll be posting about manis only.

I’m starting with this mani which I did before Christmas but somehow forgot to post about. Oops!

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House (2 coats).

This is a gorgeous dark green with micro-shimmer. It’s particularly pretty because it’s not brush-strokey at all. Great stuff, Rimmel!

The glitter top coat I used is the wonderful Barry M Jingle Bells. It features gold glitter in various shapes and sizes, as well as red glitter in the shape of winter boots. How cute is this glitter top coat?! 😍

I liked this mani a lot, but I didn’t like any of the photos I took. It was a grey and cloudy day with little natural light, and this photo (taken indoors with plenty of artificial light) was the best of the countless ones I took. In a nutshell, my cuticles look great, but the actual mani doesn’t look very crisp. Ah well…

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Quick Dry 46, Barry M Amethyst Glitter, Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Rebel 07

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhatten Quick Dry 46K (dark red base colour, 2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Primark PS… Marshmallow (white base, 2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

The pretty glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter. For the images I used MoYou London‘s Rebel 07 stamping plate and a random black polish.

The mani wasn’t what I had in mind. Whilst the red glitter nails looked great, the black and white nails weren’t my best work. The black polish I stamped with isn’t suitable for stamping, and the images ended up the wrong way around… Whoops!

Ah well, things like these happen sometimes. Onto the next mani! 🙂

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.

Nail Of The Day – MUA Bright Coral & Barry M Amethyst Glitter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with MUA Bright Coral (2 coats). I like this polish because it’s not a coral shade, but more of a raspberry shade. Pretty!

MUA’s nail polish line has been discontinued which is too bad because some of their polishes are pretty great! I’m glad I stocked up when they were 50p each (clearance).

Anyhoo… I didn’t want to stamp, so I used Barry M‘s Amethyst Glitter to add some sparkle to my nails.

This is another mani that (thanks to the cute glitter top coat) looked really nice in real life. However, it was impossible to capture the beauty of the glitter properly.
