Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And this mani is for challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag.
This challenge is (well, was) one of the few that I thought I might have to skip. However, I remembered that Canada Day is just around the corner. And I also have quite a few Canadian blogging buddies, so I thought I could do Canada nails. 😉
I didn’t have any stamping plates with large maple leaf images, and I couldn’t draw a maple leaf if my life depended on it. So I opted for a stamping image that featured small maple leaves.
Which products did I use? I chose Boots No 7 Devil’s Delight as my red base colour. The white nail polish I used for the accent nail is MUA White Wash. The red stamping colour is Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Red Ruby, and the stamping plate is an unbranded one that’s just called CF-17.
I really like how this mani turned out! One of the maple leaves didn’t stamp perfectly, but all in all I’m happy with this mani.
How do you like this mani? And if you’re Canadian – will you try a Canada Day mani? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!
Hi there! Today’s post is about a recent mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. With this mani I’ve completed challenge #27 Inspired By Artwork!
The artwork in question is the black cats print on the pale yellow scarf that one of my co-workers has been wearing for quite some time.
For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 100 Buttercup (2 coats). I don’t love this colour, but it came in handy for this mani!
The stamping plate I used is Bundle Monster’s BM-S162 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster’s Fuzzy and Ferocious collection).
The black stamping polish (not a real stamping polish) is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.
I didn’t like this mani at all. I rushed it, and it shows. I wore this mani for one day only. However, I’m glad I’ve completed the dreaded ‘artwork challenge’. Yay! 🙂
Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a few months ago.
I’ve wanted to do a foil tutorial for ages, and I wanted to use this photo for said tutorial, but I haven’t had the time to put everything together. But I hope to do a proper tutorial next month!
Alright, back to this mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats). I like this black polish!
And whilst this polish looked nice on its own, I wanted more than plain black nails. So I used blue and fuchsia foils to add some colour to my nails. Job done!
I was very happy with how this mani turned out. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
Hi there! Today’s post is a short Nail Of The Day post.
For this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colours Blue La La. I really like this shade of blue. It’s cute and cool!
The stamping plate I chose is Pueen’s 93 plate (which is available as part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).
And the blue polish I stamped with is Filthy Gorgeous Midnight. It’s not a “real” stamping polish, but it stamps perfectly.
I think this mani turned out OK. It’s not my favourite, but I couldn’t come up with a more creative mani. I also didn’t want to do another underwater mani just yet. Ah well, maybe next time. 🙂
Anyway, feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
Hi there! Today’s post is about an easy mani I did a few weeks ago.
For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (2 coats).
I love this nail polish. Rimmel’s 60 Seconds formula is fantastic. And I love the milky violet shade very much. It’s just so pretty!
I don’t remember which polish I used as my stamping colour – all I know is that it was, without doubt, a random drugstore nail polish.
I do, however, remember that I used Pueen’s 72 stamping plate. This stamping plate is one of my favourites. It’s part of Pueen’s awesome Stamping Buffet collection.
How do you like this mani? I think it looks really nice. It’s subtle, but not boring. Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂
Hi there! Today I’ve got another nail post for you. 🙂
With today’s post I’m continuing “my” 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.
However, today’s challenge is the first challenge that I have changed a little. I thought that changing it would be better than skipping it altogether!
The original challenge #16 would have been Tribal Print. However, I dislike tribal print manis just as much as I dislike polka dot manis, so I changed Tribal Print to Print.
And this means… the new challenge is #16 Print! Hey, what’s more print than newspaper print? 🙂
For this mani I painted my nails with Maybelline Forever Strong 795 Cloudy Grey (1 coat). And I could finally use my Pueen 53 plate (from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection)! The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.
How do you like this mani? I think it’s alright. It’s not my favourite mani, but it certainly beats beige nail colours (yawn…) and the likes. 🙂 If you want to comment, please do so. And thanks for stopping by!
Hi there! Today’s post is a short one about the foil mani I did the other day.
I had to do something with my nails but I didn’t have much time as it was quite late already and I knew I’d be waking up with sheet marks the next day if I painted my nails.
So I went for an all-over rainbow mani using leftover bits from foils in all colours.
The foil mani looks a bit patchy and uneven in the photo. However, in real life it was the exact opposite – even and without any visible bald spots.
I’ve done countless foil manis which looked much, much better, but I think this mani looks kind of cute. 🙂 I think I will do another rainbow mani soon.
