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 – Bourjois So Lacque 39 Jaune Trendy & Stamping With JQ-L02

Bourjois Jaune Trendy StampingHi there! Today’s post is another nail post. I don’t wear yellow nail polish very often. But I’ve got dozens of yellow polishes. And since it’s still summer, I thought now’s the time for a yellow mani.

You may notice that my nails are considerably shorter than last week. Nope, no nail accident this time. (Yay!) They just got too long so I filed them down again.

Now back to the mani! I painted my nails with Bourjois So Lacque 39 Jaune Trendy (two coats).

The stamping plate I chose was JQ-L02. This is one of my stamping plates that feature smaller (but beautiful!) images only – so I can only use these plates when my nails are relatively short.

I don’t remember which black polish I used to stamp on the images. And I also don’t remember how I managed to put a dent in the middle finger, but in real life it was barely noticeable.

All in all, I think the mani turned out alright. I think the yellow polish is quite ugly on its own, but it’s a wonderful base colour for stamping. Actually, I have an idea for an awesome mani that requires a yellow base. If I manage to pull it off, you’ll read it here first. 🙂
