Nail Of The Day – Barry M Waikiki & Stamping With Pueen 51 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge E – Exotic

Hi there! Today’s mani is my attempt at Exotic Nails which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Waikiki. I like this polish. Great formula, awesome colour!

I used Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I think this mani is quite pretty. The colour really pops, and I love the images. This stamping plate is one of my favourites, and I’m always happy to use it!

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Barry M Bubblegum, MUA Whitewash & Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf / A-Z Nail Art Challenge F – Fuzzy Topper

Hi there! Today’s post is about the first mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This challenge is called Fuzzy Topper. Cute, eh?

I have quite a few ‘fuzzy toppers’. But, unfortunately, I rarely use them. So this challenge provides the perfect opportunity to sport one of those fuzzy toppers!

And these are the nail polishes that I used:
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (base colour, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs),
Barry M Bubblegum (fuzzy topper),
MUA Whitewash (base colour, ring fingers),
Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf (base colour, middle fingers).

I also stamped! I chose an ornamental floral image for my middle and ring fingers. The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab.

How do you like this mani? I think it looks quite nice. And I think I did a good job with these 3 colours! Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 67N & Barry M Treasure Chest

upload-1Hi there! Today’s nail post is about another mani I did some time ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 67N. I love the purple colour! If only Manhattan had given this polish a cooler name than “67N”… Ah well, it is what it is. 😉

The gold glitter topper is Barry M’s Treasure Chest which is part of Barry M’s Aquarium collection. I think this glitter topper is no longer available, but I’m sure there are other gold flakie toppers out there.

I didn’t like this mani as much as I hoped I would. I usually love gold and purple, but I think I applied too much glitter this time.

What do you think? Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Bourjois So Lacque 61 Vert Chlorophylle & Barry M Jingle Bells / Nail Art Challenge #17 Glitter

Christmas NailsHi there! I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge, and I’m also doing Christmas manis this month. And today’s nail art challenge is #17 Glitter!

For this easy mani I painted my nails with Bourjois So Lacque 61 Vert Chlorophylle (2 coats). I really like this polish – it dries reasonably quickly and the formula is easy to work with.

The glitter polish is one that sat in my stash for quite some time. It’s Barry M Jingle Bells, a cute gold and red limited edition glitter topper from 2014.

So whilst this mani is far from being unique, it’s a wearable green/glitter Christmas mani that shouldn’t raise too many eyebrows. 🙂

How do you like this mani? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nails

122015 Christmas 333Hi there! I’ve done a few christmassy manis this month, but so far this is my favourite mani.

I was quite impressed with Beauty UK’s White nail polish – which is fully opaque in two coats. So I used it for this mani as well.

The cute topper I used is Barry M’s Christmas Tree – a limited edition from last year. This topper is packed with green micro, bar and hex glitter, red glitter flakes, golden holo hex glitter and silver holo stars.

As the glitter felt very rough, I applied a thick layer of top coat. Result? Problem solved!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Boots 17 Supreme Shine Love & Barry M Confetti Bubblegum

Boots 17 Love PLUS Barry M Confetti BubblegumHi there! I haven’t prepared any product reviews because I’ve been really busy with work all week. So here’s another NOTD post. 🙂

I’ve worn this mani since Thursday and I think it looks very cute. The fuchsia base shade is called Love and it’s a Boots 17 Supreme Shine nail polish.

The fuzzy glitter topper (light blue and white) is called Bubblegum and it’s from Barry M’s Confetti range.

I’ve got quite a few of these fuzzy/feather/confetti top coats and I love them so much. If you’re bored of plain pink, orange or red nails, I recommend these fun toppers because they really make a difference!
