Nail Of The Day – Bourjois Cocktail A Barcelona 29 & Stamping With MoYou Nails 491

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Bourjois Cocktail A Barcelona 29 (2 coats). I like this polish. The colour and the shimmery finish are gorgeous. And it’s opaque in 2 coats which is unusual for such a light colour.

For the images I used my relatively new MoYou Nails 491 plate. MoYou Nails is different from MoYou London.

Apparently, there used to be 1 company called MoYou, but the co-owners went their separate ways, and now there’s 1 company trading as MoYou London and 1 company trading as MoYou Nails. That’s sorted then!

Oh, and the black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (which, unfortunately, is near empty…).

Nail Of The Day – Sinful Colors Blue Lala, Bourjois Techno Bar A Tokyo & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! Let me show you another mani I did not too long ago!

For this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats). I really love this polish. The formula is great, the polish dries quickly, and the colour is stunning!

I wanted a sparkly mani, so I top-coated my nails with Bourjois Techno Bar A Tokyo 44 (1 coat). This top coat is a pale (almost transparent) light blue polish packed with iridescent hex glitter. 🙂

And then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and a home-made black polish.

I didn’t love this mani, but I think it looked alright. Do you like blue nails? What colour are your nails right now? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did last month. For this mani I painted my nails with my home-made white polish.

Well, some time ago I poured all my near-empty white polishes into an empty Rimmel polish bottle – the result was an almost full bottle of white nail polish. 🙂

I opted for a white base because I wanted to finish a near-empty colour polish. And stamping is simply the easiest way to get those hard to reach last drops of polish out of the bottle.

The colour polish I stamped with is Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47. The stamping plate I chose is Pueen‘s 77 plate (part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

The coral polish was paler than expected, so I double-stamped. This seemed to mess up the images, but I was OK with that because I managed to empty the Bourjois polish! Success!

Nail Of The Day – Bourjois Anti-Choc No Chips 17, Astor Lacque Deluxe 875 Electric Blue & Water Decals / A-Z Nail Art Challenge V – Vibrant Nails

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did recently.

For this mani I painted my nails with Bourjois Anti Choc / No Chips 17 and Astor Lacque Deluxe 875 Electric Blue.

And I used colourful water decals to add that je ne sais quoi to an otherwise fairly standard mani.

Since the water decals are quite eye-catching, this mani is going in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file it under V – Vibrant Nails.

I think this mani looks really cool! What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47 & Stamping With Pueen 72 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge C – Coral

Hi there! After yesterday’s Battle Of The Base Coats I’ve got a regular Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47 (2 coats). This polish is amazing. It goes on like a dream, it dries quickly, and it’s opaque in 2 easy coats!

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 72 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’m happy with this mani. I know the image on the middle finger doesn’t look perfect, but this is an issue with the plate, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

In any event, I like this mani a lot! Do you agree? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

PS: Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I’ve done this mani for my very own A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This mani is for challenge C – Coral. 🙂

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!
