Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 444 Seduce & Stamping With Pueen 72

Rimmel Essence Pueen StampingHi there! Today’s post is another nail of the day post. I did this mani a few weeks ago. It didn’t turn out as pretty as I had hoped. But it’s not a nail fail. 🙂

I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 444 Seduce (pinky, middle finger, index finger, thumb) and MUA White Wash (ring finger).

I wanted to stamp white on purple and purple on white. So I used Essence’s fantastic white stamping polish – and Rimmel 444 Seduce.

The exotic floral image is from Pueen’s 72 plate (from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) which is one of my favourite plates.

All in all, I’m happy with the mani. Yes, it’s unfortunate that the purple polish didn’t stamp very well. However, I can look past that. 🙂 Feel free to let me know what you think and thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, MakeUp Revolution True Blue, Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888 Glitter & Stamping With QA89

NYC A Perfect Day MUR True Blue Miss Sporty Glitter and StampingHi there! A couple of weeks ago I did a blue and grey themed mani. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted. But I thought I should still share it.

I painted my nails with MakeUp Revolution True Blue (pinky, index finger, thumb) and NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (ring finger, middle finger).

I added some glitter – namely Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch Top Coat 888 Glitter – to my ring finger. And then I started stamping. 🙂

I chose my QA89 stamping plate – which is one of the many plates I haven’t used before (that’s because the images are too small for my nails when my nails are longer).

And I stamped on different images using Essence’s amazing White Stampy Polish.

Looking closely, the mani wasn’t perfect because the crown and flower images didn’t turn out the way I wanted them to. But I have to admit that, from a distance, the mani actually looked quite nice.

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab, Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Kate, Barry M Masquerade & Stamping With JQ-L04

Rimmel Black Cab Andrea Fulerton Kate JQ-L02, Essence Stampy Polish White Barry M MasqueradeHi there! After a few recent nail fails I seem to have found my mani mojo again. 🙂 So today’s post is about a recent mani I really, really liked.

As usual, I didn’t know what to do with my nails. So I started with two base colours – Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Kate (pinky, index finger) and Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab (ring finger, middle finger, thumb).

I wanted to stamp. So I selected a few pretty images from my JQ-L04 stamping plate. And I stamped on the images with Essence’s Nail Art Stampy Polish in white.

But I also wanted some sparkle. And I opted for Barry M‘s Masquerade (gold, fuchsia and light blue glitter in a clear base).

I’m very pleased with how the mani turned out. It’s got a butterfly and floral images, glitter, purple and black & white. What’s not to love? 🙂 Please feel free to let me know what you think about this mani. And thank you for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Underwater Mani – Featuring Rimmel, Essence, Astor, Beauty UK & Sugar Bubbles

Sugar BubblesHi there! I loved my last underwater mani so much that I did another one.

This time I thought I’d use my newest glitter polish – which reminded me very much of mermaids – and my Sugar Bubbles SB 031 stamping plate.

I used these polishes:
Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue (base colour, pinky).
Beauty UK White (base colour, ring and middle fingers).
Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (base colour, index finger and thumb).
Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish in White (stamped image on pinky, index finger, thumb).
Rimmel Love Glitter 034 A Crush On You (glitter topper ring and middle fingers).

So here it is – my underwater mani! I think it turned out great. What do you think?

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue, Sally Hansen HD 03 Pixel Pretty & Stamping

NYC Sally Hansen Blue plus stampingHi there! A couple of months ago I did this super cute floral mani which drew lots of compliments. And now that my nails look alright again, I thought I’d try the same mani – in reverse. 🙂

So instead of painting my nails white and stamping on blue flowers, this time I did it the other way around. I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue (2 coats), a medium blue with a creamy finish.

Then I added 1 coat of Sally Hansen’s HD 03 Pixel Pretty, a shimmery turquoise which adds a lot of sparkle!

And then I stamped on a few different floral images from different stamping plates – using the fabulous white Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish.

How do you like this mani? And which one do you like better – the original blue on white mani or this one? Feel free to comment and thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – L’Oréal Color Riche 701 Midnight Mistress & Stamping with Pueen 59

L'Oreal Midnight Mistress PLUS Pueen 59Hi there! Today’s post is about nails again. I”m enjoying stamping again and in the past couple of weeks I’ve done quite a few manis with the help of my Pueen Stamping Buffet image plates.

The base colour is L’Oréal Color Riche 701 Midnight Mistress. This is the darkest blue in my nail polish collection. It reminds me of Nails Inc.’s Motcomb Street, but L’Oréal’s formula is much better.

The white stamping polish is from Essence. It’s called Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish 01. As you can see it stamps very well. And it’s only £1.50 so it’s a total bargain. The floral stamping plate is Pueen 59.

I really like this mani and I’m impressed with the white polish. Thank you, Essence!
