Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 306 Velvet Rose, Fashionista Nail Lacquer Shade 4 Dreamy

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 306 Velvet Rose (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Fashionista Nail Lacquer Shade 4 Dreamy (2 coats, pinkies and ring fingers).

The cute glitter top coat I used is Barry M Amethyst Glitter. This is one of the most beautiful rainbow glitters ever. 😍

For the images on the ring fingers and pinkies I used Maniology‘s BM-XL218 stamping plate and the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn, Sleek Nailed By Sleek Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida & Stamping / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #2 Orange Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about the second mani I did for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge – it’s challenge #2 ORANGE NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (3 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and with Sleek‘s Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida (2 coats over a white base, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I needed a white base because Sleek’s orange polish isn’t of great quality. It’s incredibly thin, and I doubt that even 4 coats would have been enough. I also found that this polish took ages to dry. Yikes! It’s obvious why Sleek discontinued this nail polish collection!

The stamping plate I used is the my trusted unbranded Flowers 02 plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani – especially the textured polish. I didn’t like textured polishes when they were the rage a few years ago, but I do like them now! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight & Stamping With MoYou London Animals 05

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight (2 coats). I love this polish (I love quite a few Revlon Colorstay polishes because they’re awesome).

I used my (relatively new) MoYou London Animals 05 plate – which I bought because it has a number of marine images. I own several stamping plates with marine images, and I’ve done quite a few marine manis over the years – and I know I’ll be doing many more!

The light blue polish I stamped with is Orly Snow Cone. It’s not a stamping polish, but it stamps perfectly. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid, Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 600 Sour Apple + 210 Royal Icing & Stamping With Pueen 114

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

For the images I used Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day collection), Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

On my ring fingers and pinkies I used Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 600 Sour Apple (pale green, 2 coats) and Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 210 Royal Icing (sheer turquoise with pink shimmer, 1 coat as a top coat). 🙂

I liked this mani a lot. I’ve rediscovered textured polishes, and I love purple nails with black and gold accents. And this mani has both! What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! Today’s post is not only the last post this week, but it’s also the last post this Nail Week.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (2 coats). This is a pretty peachy-pink shade with microshimmer galore. It’s not my favourite nail colour, but it looks amazing in the sun!

I thought that a few simple rosey images would look nice with this base colour, so I chose Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

The black polish I stamped with is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Sarong Wrap & Stamping With Pueen 83 (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Nail Week is still on, so here’s another mani I did some time ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark‘s PS… Snow White nail polish (1 coat). Once the white base had dried, it was time for Models Own Sarong Wrap (2 coats). Sarong Wrap is a low-quality polish. It’s terribly thin, and I don’t think I would have gotten much (or any) joy from it had I not started with a white base.

Anyhoo… I thought that light pink accents would look nice, so I used a small piece of a makeup sponge to apply pink polish to my nails. Well, it didn’t look great, but I didn’t have the time to correct the mistake, so I just left it as it was.

Then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 83 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and Revlon Top Speed 880 Black Star.

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With Pueen 116 + 117

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish. The colour is gorgeous, and the formula is absolutely perfect.

For the images I used 2 stamping plates – Pueen 116 (thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Pueen 117 (ring fingers, pinkies). These 2 stamping plates are part of Pueen‘s super cute Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

I didn’t love this mani, but it was a nice enough filler mani for a few days.
