Nail Of The Day – Essence Out Of Space Stories 07 1000 Light Years Away & Stamping With MoYou London Sci-Fi 04, Sci-Fi 07 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge O – Out Of Space

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This also means that Nail Week has now come to an end.

OK, for this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 880 Black Star (1 coat) and Essence Out Of Space Stories 07 1000 Light Years Away (1 coat).

I started with the black Revlon base because I didn’t want to waste the sensationally beautiful Essence polish. 🙂

I decided it was time to break in a few new stamping plates – MoYou London Sci-Fi 04 and Sci-Fi 07.

The white polish I stamped with is Essence’s Stampy Polish which, unfortunately, has been discontinued.

I really liked this mani. I think I could have chosen a better (=smaller) image for the index finger, but I was still happy with the mani.

By the way, this mani is my interpretation of the Out Of Space challenge which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

If you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link. Oh, in case you’re wondering… yes, I did purchase this stamping plate myself!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon 902 Craving Coral & Stamping With Pueen 73

Hi there! I think it’s time for another Nail Of The Day post. So here it is!

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 902 Craving Coral. I don’t love the colour, but I bought the polish (years ago), so I have to use it every now and then. And that’s what I’m doing! 🙂

I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp a remotely floral (?) image onto my nails. Said image is featured on Pueen’s 73 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

I didn’t love this mani. The images are far from perfect. This was 100% my fault because I was in a hurry. But in real life the mani didn’t look too bad. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Underwater Nails Feat. Rimmel, Pueen, Revlon, Filthy Gorgeous & Essence

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently.

We had a few colleagues from France over at our office. I managed to dress properly (navy-blue suit, red and white striped top), but I couldn’t bring myself to wear plain red nails (yawn).

Since I was already dressed like a sailor, I thought I might as well just do a marine mani using the French national colours. And that’s exactly what I did! 🙂

And I used these products:
red base colour – Revlon 335 Mon Cherry,
blue base colour – Rimmel 231 Blue Eyed Girl,
white base colour – Rimmel 703 White Hot Love,

white stamping colour – Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish White,
blue stamping colour – Filthy Gorgeous Midnight,
red stamping colour – Revlon 335 Mon Cherry.

I chose images from three different stamping plates – Pueen 89 (shells), Pueen 91 (fish and corals), and Pueen 96 (anchors). These three stamping plates are part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection!

I realise this mani looks quite busy – but I really love it! I also got quite a few compliments which was very nice! How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Stamping With Pueen 44 / Nail Art Challenge #25 Inspired By Fashion

Hi there! Today’s mani is another 31 Days Nail Art Challenge entry!

This mani is my attempt at challenge #25 – Inspired By Fashion. And the fashion item that inspired this mani is a scarf of mine.

I’ve used said scarf as backdrop for a few product photos. If you’re interested, you can see the scarf here.

Now onto the mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection).

And I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp on the stars. 🙂

Whilst this mani turned out a little messy, I still liked it. What do you think? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 67N & Stamping With Pueen 73 / Nail Art Challenge #6 Violet Nails

uploadHi there! Today’s post is about another mani that counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. The mani I’ve done is my attempt at challenge #6 Violet Nails.

I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 67N. I like the purple colour. It’s not too dark, not too light, not too flashy… it’s just a great purple!

I didn’t want to do a glitter mani, and I didn’t feel like using nail stickers or decals. So I ended up stamping! Again! 😀

So… I used Pueen’s 73 plate (from Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and Essence‘s fantastic white Stampy Polish to stamp floral images onto my nails.

This mani turned out alright, I think. Sure, it’s not perfect. But keep in mind that, in real life, no one looks at my nails with a magnifying glass – so in real life the imperfections are hardly visible.

Any thoughts? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading! 🙂

So here it is – my underwater mani! I think it turned out great. What do you think?
