Nail Of The Day – P2 Color Victim 240 Joyful & Stamping / Nail Art Challenge #3 Yellow Nails

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani that counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing as a lifetime challenge). It’s mani #3 Yellow Nails.

For this mani I painted my nails with P2 Color Victim 240 Joyful (3 coats). This polish is a bright and sunny yellow with an old-fashioned frosty finish. It’s not really a favourite.

I used my unbranded Flowers 01 stamping plate and NYC In A Minute 001 Evil to stamp on the images.

I think this mani wasn’t great, but it was OK to wear it for two days. I got a few compliments, but that was only because the shiny yellow caught peoples’ eyes.

Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nails Featuring NYC, Revlon, Sally Hansen, Essence & Bundle Monster / Nail Art Challenge #2 Orange Nails

upload-2Hi there! Today’s nail of the day post is another Halloween-themed mani. And it’s also my attempt at #2 Orange nails for the Nail Art Challenge. I think this mani is really spooky – do you agree?

I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 001 Evil (pinky and index fingers, two coats) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 844 On The Mango (ring and middle fingers, thumbs, two coats).

I chose images from 5 different stamping plates: No-name plates M94 (Konad dupe) and A13 (bats), No-name plate JQ-L18 (tree), Bundle Monster BM-224 (spooky mansion) and Bundle Monster BM-222 (pumpkin).

The two polishes I used to stamp on the image were my white Essence Stampy Polish and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black).

I do like this mani. I could have paid more attention when I did the middle and index fingers, but I think the pinky and the ring finger look great. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for reading!

Just in case you missed my last Halloween nail idea – cat nails – you can find the post here. And don’t forget to check out my monster slime & bats and my blood spatter manis. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Foils & Stamping – Featuring Rimmel, Barry M & Pueen

Foils & StampingHi there! A couple of weeks ago I did a foils & stamping mani. I really liked how it turned out. So I thought I could try something similar – but this time with green base colours.

I selected Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch (index, pinky) and Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Key Lime (thumb, middle and ring fingers) as my base colours.

Both polishes were almost opaque in one coat. Awesome stuff!

Then I used leftover foils to add some sparkle to the dark green polish.

The floral image I stamped on the light green polish is from Pueen’s 76 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure set.

I think this mani didn’t turn out as nice as the ‘original’ mani from a few weeks ago. But it looked OK. Please let me know how you like this mani. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Stamping With Pueen 80

NYC 900 Wonder Purple Pueen 80Hi there! Today’s post is a short one about the mani I did the other day. I think it’s not spectacular at all, but my husband really liked it. So I hope a few of you will like it too. 🙂

Let’s start! I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats). This gorgeous polish cost me 33p only – it came in a trio pack for £1 (yes, three polishes = £1 in total at Poundworld). Now that’s what I call a bargain!

The stamped-on image is from Pueen’s 80 plate – which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection. Pueen’s 80 plate features several images of roses – yet somehow I managed to stamp on the exact same rose on every nail. Funny…

Pueen’s 80 plate isn’t my favourite stamping plate. It’s nice to look at, but the images aren’t as nice when they’re stamped on. I don’t know why. I think I should give it another try – and maybe use different colours (something rosey…) and see how that goes.

Oh, before I forget… this time I used another NYC polish to stamp on the images. Normally I use Revlon Colorstay Stiletto, but I misplaced it (so much for bringing my beauty stash in order…). So today I used NYC In A Minute 001 Evil. It’s not the best black polish for stamping, but it’s OK.

Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
