Nail Of The Day – Ghosts / Nail Art Challenge #29 Inspired By The Supernatural

upload-1Hi there! Halloween is just a week away, so I thought I’d do another Halloween-inspired mani which also doubles up as challenge #29 (Inspired By The Supernatural) of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 843 Midnight Skinny Dip (3 coats). Midnight Skinny Dip is a blue polish with a bit of an old-fashioned metallic finish.

This kind of colour is often recycled for all kinds of Christmas-themed nail polish collections. Not my favourite.

The ghosts are decals that I found online. I think they’re really cute and they’re perfect for Halloween and for the Inspired By The Supernatural theme. 🙂

I wanted to do a glitter accent nail, and I chose Sally Hansen Triple Shine 300 Pearly Whites (which is a cheaper dupe for Color Club Covered In Diamonds). I love this flakie topper. It’s gorgeous and it goes well with any colour.

I’m happy with how this mani turned out. It’s a bit more individual (and less scary) than your average spiderweb or eyeball mani. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Color Club Covered In Diamonds

Rimmel Black Satin PLUS Color Club Covered in DiamondsHi there! Just last week I paired Color Club‘s ultimate flakie polish, Covered In Diamonds, with a pinkish lavender shade.

I knew it would be prettier on a darker base, so that’s why I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin as a base this time.

Unfortunately the photo doesn’t capture the beauty that is Covered In Diamonds, so you have to trust me when I say that this mani looks absolutely amazing.

I’ve fallen in love with flakie polishes again recently and I think I should definitely buy more of them and also try the other ones I’ve got (Ciaté, Poundland, W7, Nfu Oh). I’ll keep you updated on the flakie adventures! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 264 Lincoln Square Lavender & Color Club Covered In Diamonds

NYC Lincoln Square Lavender PLUS Color Club Covered In DiamondsHi there! Here’s another quick nail post. A couple of weeks ago I found the most amazing bargain at Poundworld – three NYC nail polishes for £1! The polishes looked absolutely perfect, so I grabbed quite a few triple packs. 🙂

One of the new polishes is NYC In A Minute 264 Lincoln Square Lavender. The soft lavender shade is quite pretty and I’m 100% happy with the quality of the polish (dries fast, only two coats needed).

However, I get easily bored of simple manis, so I added a few flakies. I couldn’t be bothered to apply several coats of flakie topper, so I left it at one coat of Color Club’s Covered In Diamonds.

Yes, I could have use a little hand lotion around the cuticles… but it’s too late now. Anyway, I really love the flakie look. It’s a lot more beautiful on darker nails, but I think it looks great on this soft lavender shade too.
