Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey, Water Decals & Foils

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I love the black polish. It’s a true black. Gorgeous! “Steel Grey” isn’t grey at all. It’s more like one of those (more or less) nude-ish shades with maybe a hint of grey.

I used gold foil to add a contrast to the black base colour, and I used water decals to give the mani a halloweeney look. Yes, it’s not Halloween yet, but doing several Halloween manis throughout the month of October is simply more fun.

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nail Art Ideas / NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is the 6th and last Halloween Nail Art Ideas post for this year.

If you’re still unsure what to do with your nails this Halloween, how about something like this? 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (2 coats). The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds Hot Black To Go.

I used a number of different stamping plates:
Bundle Monster BM-224, JQ-L18, and a few unbranded stamping plates.

I also tried to double-stamp with gold polish, but I picked the wrong polish. The golden hues are hardly visible – unless you look for them.

Anyway, I still like this mani. I think it looks great with the grey base, the barren tree, the spooky mansion and the bats. Do you agree? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nail Art Ideas / Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet (3 coats). I don’t really love the colour, but I think it’s the perfect Halloween-pumpkin colour!

I used MoYou London’s Festive 53 plate and Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go to stamp on the images.

I also used one of my unbranded stamping plates to add a few small bats. 🙂

I think this mani turned out OK. I was hoping it would look cooler and cuter, but all in all, it’s not bad, and it’s definitely very halloweeny!

How do you like this mani? Feel free to let me know! And by the way, 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 – Halloween Nail Art Ideas / Primark PS… 18 Strobe, Boots 17 Red & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge N – Nocturnal Creatures

Hi there! Today I’ve got another Halloween nail art idea for you. 🙂

Last year I did a bats on blood mani. I really loved that mani, and I was thinking about doing the same mani again.

However, I also wanted to use one of my newest stamping plates, so I went for a cute bats on blood mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… 18 Strobe. This is a great white polish that I really need to stock up on!

I used Boots 17 Red and a small piece of a make-up sponge for the blood effect.

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go. I used 2 stamping plates – a random unbranded plate (small bats) and MoYou London‘s brand new Festive 53 plate (big bats) which is packed with cute images.

Oh, by the way, this mani counts towards the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This is my interpretation of the Nocturnal Creatures 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 (and the other new ones) myself!

Now… how do you like this mani? I think it’s awesome. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!
