Nail Of The Day – Essence Out Of Space Stories 07 1000 Light Years Away & Stamping With MoYou London Sci-Fi 04, Sci-Fi 07 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge O – Out Of Space

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This also means that Nail Week has now come to an end.

OK, for this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 880 Black Star (1 coat) and Essence Out Of Space Stories 07 1000 Light Years Away (1 coat).

I started with the black Revlon base because I didn’t want to waste the sensationally beautiful Essence polish. 🙂

I decided it was time to break in a few new stamping plates – MoYou London Sci-Fi 04 and Sci-Fi 07.

The white polish I stamped with is Essence’s Stampy Polish which, unfortunately, has been discontinued.

I really liked this mani. I think I could have chosen a better (=smaller) image for the index finger, but I was still happy with the mani.

By the way, this mani is my interpretation of the Out Of Space challenge which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

If you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link. Oh, in case you’re wondering… yes, I did purchase this stamping plate myself!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Top Speed 220 Bubble & Ciaté Confetti

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did a little while ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 220 Bubble (2 coats). I love this colour. It’s full of live. It’s gorgeous.

In order to complete the ‘Barbie’ manicure I applied 1 coat of Ciaté’s Confetti. This top coat is packed with small silver holo glitter. It looked mesmerising in real life.

I wish I had managed to capture the amazingness of the silver holo glitter…

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Feat. Revlon, Ciaté, MUA & Manhattan / A-Z Nail Art Challenge G-Galaxies

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about the Galaxies mani that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria.

And then I used small pieces of a retired make-up sponge to apply a number of different nail polishes.

I used these colours: MUA White Wash (white), Revlon Colorstay 040 Provence (pale lavender) & Manhattan Buffalo 18 (milky lilac).

And then I just applied one coat of Ciaté Confetti, which is a beautiful silver holo glitter topper.

I think this mani turned out great. I love it! What do you think? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Gosh 549 Holographic Hero & Stamping With Pueen 76 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge H-Holo

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

This mani is another one that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. And I’m filing this one under H – Holo.

For this mani I painted my nails with Gosh 549 Holographic Hero (2 coats). This holo polish is not great, but holo polishes aren’t readily available in the UK, so I’m actually happy to have this one (and several back-up bottles) in my stash.

I also did a little stamping – and I used Pueen’s 76 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go for that. 🙂

I think this mani looks quite nice. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
