Nail Of The Day – Superdrug B. Complete 154 Brit, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms, Essence 3D Glitter 10 Glorious Aquarius, Essie As Gold As It Gets, Essie Rock At The Top & Nail Decals

Hi there! Let me show you another mani I did not too long ago!

For this mani I painted my nails with B. Complete 154 Brit (2 coats, ring fingers, thumbs) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms (2 coats, middle fingers).

And I used white and blue floral decals on my pinkies and index fingers.

I thought this mani would look better with glitter, so I top-coated my nails with Essie As Gold As It Gets (pinkies, index fingers), Essie Rock At The Top (ring fingers, thumbs), and Essence 3D Glitter 10 Glorious Aquarius.

I really liked this blue, white and gold glittery floral look. Do you like blue manicures? Do you like nail decals and glitter? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet, Collection 2000 Hot Looks 30 Sherbet Lemons, Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy & Stamping With Pueen 79

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. I knew I wanted to stamp, but I found the base colour a little boring, so I decided to add some colour.

I used a small piece of a make-up wedge to sponge yellow and red blobs of colour onto my nails. The 2 colour polishes that I used were Collection 2000 Hot Looks 30 Sherbet Lemons and Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy.

Then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 79 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and a home-made black polish.

I really liked this mani. It doesn’t look super cool when you stare at it from up close, but in real life it looked great.

Have you ever applied nail polish with a make-up wedge or sponge? If so, how did it turn out? And if not, why not?! 😜 Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf, Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova & Stamping With Pueen 81

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf (middle and ring fingers, 2 coats) and Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

The glitter polish I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

I also used Pueen‘s 81 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection). The dark blue polish I stamped with is Filthy Gorgeous Midnight.

I think this mani was quite alright. For some reason I couldn’t make the glitter pop in the photos, but in real life it looked cute and sparkly!

Nail Of The Day – Sinful Colors Blue La La, Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon, Maybelline Colorshow 654 Superpower Blue & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today. And it’s another marine mani!

For this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats, pinkies, middle fingers), Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon (2 coats, ring fingers), and Maybelline Colorshow 654 Superpower Blue (2 coats, index fingers, thumbs).

I used MoYou London‘s super cute Doodles 07 stamping plate.

As almost always, I used drugstore polishes as my stamping polishes: Maybelline Colorshow 654 Superpower Blue (pinkies, middle fingers), Orly Snow Cone (index fingers, thumbs), and Revlon 902 Craving Coral (ring fingers).

I like this mani. It’s not my best marine mani, but it looks cute, so what’s not to like? Do you like marine manis? Feel free to get in touch. By the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Essence Out Of Space Stories 07 1000 Light Years Away & Stamping With MoYou London Sci-Fi 04, Sci-Fi 07 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge O – Out Of Space

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This also means that Nail Week has now come to an end.

OK, for this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 880 Black Star (1 coat) and Essence Out Of Space Stories 07 1000 Light Years Away (1 coat).

I started with the black Revlon base because I didn’t want to waste the sensationally beautiful Essence polish. 🙂

I decided it was time to break in a few new stamping plates – MoYou London Sci-Fi 04 and Sci-Fi 07.

The white polish I stamped with is Essence’s Stampy Polish which, unfortunately, has been discontinued.

I really liked this mani. I think I could have chosen a better (=smaller) image for the index finger, but I was still happy with the mani.

By the way, this mani is my interpretation of the Out Of Space challenge which is part of the A-Z Nail Art 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 myself!

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Hopscotch & Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat 800 Tweedy (Nail Fail)

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Hopscotch (4 coats). This is one of my least favourite Ciaté polishes. Why? The quality is poor, and I don’t like the colour at all.

At first I wanted to stamp, but then I decided to apply a funky top coat. This is Sally Hansen’s Fuzzy Coat in 800 Tweedy.

I love these fuzzy top coats. They look like Muppet fur trimmings! 🙂

I think this mani wasn’t my best work. But in real life it looked better than in the photo! Anyhoo, next time I’ll pair this topper with a more appealing base colour.
