Nail Of The Day – Revlon 040 Fuchsia Fever, Ciaté Showtime & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL217

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 040 Fuchsia Fever (thumbs, index and middle fingers). This is a great polish. I love the colour, and I’m obsessed with the formula and the quick drying time.

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) BL-XL217 stamping plate.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

On the ring fingers and pinkies I used Ciaté Showtime (3 coats).

I liked the girly look of this mani. However, I didn’t enjoy removing the glitter. It’s normal for glitter top coats and polishes to be a bit more difficult to remove than regular nail polish, but this glitter polish was an absolute nightmare. I think I might have buy peel-off base coat (in case I’ll ever wear this glitter polish again).

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 440 Pinch Of Punch & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 718

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 440 Pinch Of Punch (2 coats).

This polish is surprisingly nice. When I did the first coat, the coverage was terrible, and I thought I might need to do 4 coats. So I was very happy when my nails looked perfect after I applied the 2nd coat.

For the images I used my Maniology Secret Garden BM 718 stamping plate.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Essie Meet Me At Sunset & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL216 (Nail Fail)

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Essie Meet Me At Sunset. This is a boring dark orange shade. The formula is strange as it’s see-through even after 3 coats of polish. Not great… 🙄

Initially I didn’t want to make a fuss with my nails. I just wanted to have a plain mani for a few days.

But thanks to the nail polish not being opaque, I thought I’d cover up the mess with the help of a stamping plate – Maniology BM-XL216 – and black polish – Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

To make a long story short: It didn’t look good. At all.

So yeah, this was a nail fail. I did wear this mani for 2 days, but I was glad to remove it. I should have known that it would look awful (I had orange plus black nail fails before) but it was after 22:00 already, and I thought stamping was the best option… Anyhoo, this mani is history now, so let’s move on…

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This is my favourite nail colour. 💜

For the images I used my Maniology Secret Garden BM 718 plate.

The 2 polishes I stamped with are Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold).

I liked this mani a lot – it has purple and black & gold double-stamping which is an all-time favourite look.

Nail Of The Day – Technic Double Trouble Midsummer & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 721

Hi there! I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Technic Double Trouble Midsummer (2 easy coats).

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 721 stamping plate.

I double-stamped! I used a random black polish and my shiny Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette nail art polish.

I really liked this mani! But it was no surprise. This shade of purple (I call it milky purple) is my favourite nail colour. And I love double-stamping!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Shine Last & Go 47 Forget The Rules & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 723

Hi there! This is another Nail Of The Day post. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Shine Last & Go 47 Forget The Rules (2 coats). This is a great colour. It will make a great base for Halloween nail art this October!

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 723 stamping plate. I’m glad I found the Secret Garden stamping collection. It’s been lost in my stash for a while, but thanks to the house move, these stamping plates made a reappearance! 😍

I used a random black polish to stamp with – this is the reason why the images didn’t come out right and look either pale or blurry. Ah well…

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Play Date, Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette, Glitter & Stamping With Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 720

Hi there! Happy Monday. I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Play Date (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats) and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette (the beige one – middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

The subtle gold glitter on the pinkies and ring fingers is Essie As Gold As It Gets.

For the images on the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used a random black nail polish. The stamping plate is Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 720. A quick note in case you’re wondering: Bundle Monster is now Maniology.

I liked this mani. It was a mix of 2 manis which – on their own – would have bored me senseless in less than a day. But I did like the mix!

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. I did this mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. It’s #12 STRIPES (as you can see, I went for animal stripes).

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer (2 coats). This is a beautiful polish. It’s bursting with pigment (it’s almost a one-coater), and I love the soft yellow shade.

For the images I used Maniology‘s BM-S161 stamping plate (which is part of their Fuzzy & Ferocious stamping plate collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.
