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…

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 718

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 – Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Sunburst & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL216

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Sunburst (2 coats).

This is a beautiful polish, and I love absolutely everything about it – the colour, the holographic shimmer, the quick drying time…

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) BM-XL216 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani a lot, and I’ve got another idea for a similar one.

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…

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Today’s post is about a mani I did earlier this month.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used a rainbow glitter top coat to add colour to the grey nails. That cute glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter.

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!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Snow White & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL218

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! 😊

Today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Snow White (2 coats). This is a great polish. Primark did a fantastic job with this one!

For the images I used my Maniology BM-XL218 stamping plate. The purple polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir.

I actually wanted to stamp with one of my near-empty purple polishes (Miss Sporty, L’Oréal), but unfortunately, I couldn’t find them. Typical, I know! 🤣

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL216

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (2 coats). I love this polish. The colour really zings!

For the images I used my relatively new Maniology BM-XL216 stamping plate. It’s a very beautiful and versatile plate. 😍

The black polish I stamped with is Essence‘s amazing black stamping polish. Unfortunately, Essence discontinued their stamping polishes. I should have stocked up in time!

Anyhoo, I liked this mani a lot. I’ll be redoing this mani soon, but next time I’ll be doing a green base.

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer & Stamping With Maniology BM-S161 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #12 Stripes

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.
