Nail Of The Day – Barry M Boy Bye & Stamping With Nicole Diary

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good week so far! 😊 Let me show you a cute mani I did a little while ago…

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 201 (2 coats). I used this polish as a dusty lavender base underneath Barry M Boy Bye (1 coat). I didn’t want to waste the pretty colour-shifting polish by applying multiple coats.

And I double-stamped. I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 805 Grey Matter for the light grey circles and stars, and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto for the black images. The 2 stamping plates I used are Nicole Diary 062 (ring and index fingers) and 067 (pinkies, middle fingers, thumbs).

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Crush & Stamping With Nicole Diary 089

Hi there! Today’s post is the last post for this week. This also means that Nail Week has come to an end, and I’ll be back with a product review tomorrow. 🙂

But for now, let’s focus on the nails! 👀 For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Crush. This polish is part of Barry M’s Matte Nail Paint collection. I don’t care for matte nail colours, so I used a regular clear top coat for a glossy finish.

The stamping plate I used is Nicole Diary‘s 089 plate which features tropical floral and leafy images.

The polish I stamped with is Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotise.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey & Barry M Amethyst Glitter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey (2 coats). I wonder why they chose this name for this brown (!) polish…

I wanted to stamp, but I thought the base colour was a bit too dark. So I decided to use a glitter top coat. I chose Barry M Amethyst Glitter – a super cute rainbow glitter top coat!

I didn’t know where I was headed when I started to paint my nails. Because of this I’m very happy that the mani turned out the way it did. I liked it a lot! It wasn’t special, but I think it looked cute.

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Personal Best & Stamping With UR Sugar UR-L011

Hi there! This week’s going to be Nail Week, and this is the first mani post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Personal Best (2 easy coats).

I love this polish! It dries in no time, and the colour also just happens to be my favourite nail colour – I call it milky purple.

The stamping plate I used is my new UR Sugar UR-L011 stamping plate. How gorgeous are those images?!

Then I double-stamped! The 2 polishes I stamped with are Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 306 Velvet Rose, Fashionista Nail Lacquer Shade 4 Dreamy

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 306 Velvet Rose (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Fashionista Nail Lacquer Shade 4 Dreamy (2 coats, pinkies and ring fingers).

The cute glitter top coat I used is Barry M Amethyst Glitter. This is one of the most beautiful rainbow glitters ever. 😍

For the images on the ring fingers and pinkies I used Maniology‘s BM-XL218 stamping plate and the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

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 – Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Barry M Christmas Tree

Hi there! Here’s another Christmas-themed mani I did recently. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats, although I could have gotten away with 1 coat as well). Primark has done a great job with this polish. This is the perfect white!

Don’t waste £15 on a mediocre white polish from one of the “salon brands”. If you’re looking for a great white polish, head to Primark, and pick up this little beauty for 90p!

Onto the glitter! The beautiful glitter top coat I used is Barry M Christmas Tree. It’s the ultimate Christmas glitter topper. I love it!
