Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With Pueen 56

HI there! Happy Saturday! I’ve got another Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish. The colour is simply gorgeous, and the formula is just perfect.

For the stamping bit I chose Pueen‘s 56 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection). This is one of a number of stamping plates that I’ve never used, even though it’s been in my stash for ages.

The black polish I stamped with is a home-made “stamping” polish.

I didn’t like the mani because I didn’t like the images. I might give this stamping plate another try, or I might just give it away.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 311 Spring Yellow, Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! Nail Week continues, so I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 311 Spring Yellow (2 coats). This isn’t the greatest yellow nail polish because it’s quite thin.

I know from experience that, with this polish, 4 coats aren’t enough for an opaque finish. So this time I thought I’d do some easy nail art.

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply random blobs of colour polish. I used Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink and Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid.

Then I used Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and a home-made black “stamping” polish for the images.

I really liked this mani. It was happy and cololurful and definitely something else! Do you like yellow nail polish? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Dangerous Affair & Foils

Hi there! Here’s another mani post. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Dangerous Affair (4 coats). This is another low quality polish from Ciaté. I don’t know why I keep buying the Ciaté Mini Mani Month Calendars…

If you like the dark red colour, try Rimmel Salon Pro 391 Celebrity Bash, or Essence Colour Boost 09 Instant Passion which is opaque in 1 coat!

Back to this mani… Even after 4 coats Ciaté’s Dangerous Affair looked pretty ugly (you really need a top coat with this polish), so I decided to beautify the mani with the help of golf foil. Tadaaa! Mani saved! 🙂

Do you like foil manis? Which colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

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 – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Essie Rock At The Top

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats).

I don’t love mint green nail colours, but I’ve learned how to make them work for me – with the help of nail stamping equipment and glitter toppers. 🙂

And this time I reached for a glitter topper. 1 coat of Essie’s Rock At The Top (which I picked up for £2!) was all it took to make this mani look glamorous.

I liked this mani. It wasn’t the most creative mani, but I liked the fresh and summery look of it.

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend! This week is going to be Nail Week. Yes, that means I’ll post about manis only. And today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago. I’ve done a very similar mani for Halloween 2017, so you could say I’m recycling my own ideas. 😀

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is a great white polish. I’m glad I stocked up because I haven’t seen this polish in quite some time.

I used an unnamed tomato red Beauty UK polish and a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply the “blood”. For the bat images I used MoYou London‘s Festive 53 plate (big bats), an unbranded stamping plate (small bats) and my home-made “stamping” polish.

I likd this mani. But I think I should have chosen a more vibrant red polish for the blood effect. Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.
