Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House & Barry M Jingle Bells

Hi there! This week’s going to be Nail Week. This means that I’ll be posting about manis only.

I’m starting with this mani which I did before Christmas but somehow forgot to post about. Oops!

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House (2 coats).

This is a gorgeous dark green with micro-shimmer. It’s particularly pretty because it’s not brush-strokey at all. Great stuff, Rimmel!

The glitter top coat I used is the wonderful Barry M Jingle Bells. It features gold glitter in various shapes and sizes, as well as red glitter in the shape of winter boots. How cute is this glitter top coat?! 😍

I liked this mani a lot, but I didn’t like any of the photos I took. It was a grey and cloudy day with little natural light, and this photo (taken indoors with plenty of artificial light) was the best of the countless ones I took. In a nutshell, my cuticles look great, but the actual mani doesn’t look very crisp. Ah well…

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine, PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow, Essence Come To Town Lametta Topper & Stamping With Pueen 44

Hi there! It’s after Christmas, but… here’s another Christmas Nail Idea. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (middle fingers), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (ring fingers).

I used Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper to add a little sparkle to the white base. And I used Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize to stamp golden stars onto the green base.

I like this mani. It’s christmassey, but it’s not over the top. I also like the individual look of the mani – it’s not one of those standard manis that everyone (myself included) does again and again, year after year… How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
