Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-S161, BM-S162 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge K – Kitties

Hi there! I’ve got a nail of the day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is one of the best white nail polishes I’ve ever had. Well done, Primark!

Since I wanted to do a cat mani, I used Bundle Monster’s BM-S161 and BM-S162 stamping plates (which are part of Bundle Monster’s Fuzzy & Ferocious collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

The mani looked a little messy – and I think the stamping plates are to blame. I’ve used these two plates before and I had the same problem. But in real life no one noticed. 😉

This mani goes in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file in under K – Kitties. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 07 Instant Feeling & Stamping With Pueen 76

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 07 Instant Feeling. I love this colour!

I used Pueen’s 76 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms to stamp delicate images onto my nails.

I really liked how this mani turned out! The golden images look great on the vintage rose coloured background. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! Today’s nail of the day post is about a mani I did a little while ago. I didn’t love the mani, so I wasn’t sure whether to do a post or not… well, here we are!

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam (2 coats). I don’t like this polish. The colour is a mix of blue, green and gold and it has a metallic (almost foil) finish. It’s a mess.

Then I thought that double-stamping might save the mani. (It didn’t work!) I used Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Revlon Briliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold) to stamp images onto my nails. The stamping plate I used is MoYou‘s super cute Doodles 07 plate.

I really didn’t like this mani. Quite a few ladies at work told me how much they loved this particular mani (?). However, it’s definitely one of my least favourite manis of 2017.

How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch. By the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Fearne Devilish Diamonds & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is about another Christmas-themed mani I did a couple of days ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 280 Pure Silver (1 coat).

This polish looks gorgeous in the bottle. But it’s actually remarkably ugly because it’s very brush-strokey. So I had to fix my mani right there! I painted 1 coat of Fearne’s Devilish Diamonds over Rimmel’s ugly polish – and it saved my mani!

I used Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (the blue polish) and my new unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate to add a few wintry images.

I think this mani looks great. It was impossible to capture the real life beauty of this mani, but it still looks pretty nice in the picture. And yes, this mani is more wintry than christmassey, but I think that’s perfectly alright. 🙂

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

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Quick Dry Nail Polish 18 Strobe & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-S161 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge Z – Zebra

Hi there! Today I’m showing you another mani that I did for the brilliant A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For the Z – Zebra challenge I painted my nails with Primark PS… Quick Dry Nail Polish 18 Strobe (2 easy coats). This is a very good white polish. And it’s 60p only. I will stock up!

I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Bundle Monster’s BM-S161 plate (from Bundle Monster’s Fuzzy And Ferocious set) to stamp zebra stripes onto my nails.

I’ve never done a zebra mani before but I think it turned out quite alright. What do you think? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Barry M Bubblegum, MUA Whitewash & Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf / A-Z Nail Art Challenge F – Fuzzy Topper

Hi there! Today’s post is about the first mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This challenge is called Fuzzy Topper. Cute, eh?

I have quite a few ‘fuzzy toppers’. But, unfortunately, I rarely use them. So this challenge provides the perfect opportunity to sport one of those fuzzy toppers!

And these are the nail polishes that I used:
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (base colour, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs),
Barry M Bubblegum (fuzzy topper),
MUA Whitewash (base colour, ring fingers),
Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf (base colour, middle fingers).

I also stamped! I chose an ornamental floral image for my middle and ring fingers. The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab.

How do you like this mani? I think it looks quite nice. And I think I did a good job with these 3 colours! Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47 & Stamping With Pueen 72 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge C – Coral

Hi there! After yesterday’s Battle Of The Base Coats I’ve got a regular Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47 (2 coats). This polish is amazing. It goes on like a dream, it dries quickly, and it’s opaque in 2 easy coats!

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection). The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I’m happy with this mani. I know the image on the middle finger doesn’t look perfect, but this is an issue with the plate, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

In any event, I like this mani a lot! Do you agree? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

PS: Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I’ve done this mani for my very own A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This mani is for challenge C – Coral. 🙂
