Nail Of The Day – Primark Holler & Glow Pink Unicorn, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Ciaté Putting On The Ritz & Stamping With MoYou London Suki 16

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark Holler & Glow Pink Unicorn (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats). This polish is described as a long wear polish. And guess what, it is! I “use” my nails a lot, and I only had very minor tip wear after 3 days. Truly impressive stuff!

I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats) on my middle and index fingers and my thumbs. This is supposed to be a long-lasting polish too, but I had to fill in the tips every day.

For the images I used MoYou London‘s Suki 16 plate and (since it was right there) Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

The gold glitter topper I used is the gorgeous Ciaté Putting On The Ritz which has been sititing in my stash for ages. Yes, I regret not trying it sooner!

I liked this mani. Since I had zero inspiration, it was supposed to be a “filler mani”, but it turned out much better than expected.

What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch & Stamping With Pueen 107

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch (2 coats). This polish is from Rimmel’s by Kate collection, and it’s pretty much a one-coater. This is a fantastic polish. 50p (!) very well spent!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 107 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s sensational Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The light green stamping polish is MoYou London‘s Little Pickle. Whilst this polish stamps well, it stains terribly. It stains worse than some of those dark blue polishes that give you “smurf hands” upon removal. I would never have expected this from such a light colour…

Anyway… I did like this mani. It wasn’t the most special mani, but it looked quite cool without being over the top. 🙂

My Favourite Manis Of 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite manis of 2018. I stamped like a maniac, I used a lot of glitter, and I did plenty of foil manis. Scroll down if you’d like to know which manis I really liked this year. 🙂

Galaxy Nails
Yellow Nails
Foil Nails

Purple Nails
Halloween Nails
Christmas Nails

Blue Nails
Mixed Nails
Halloween Nails

Foil Nails
Orange Nails
Out Of Space Nails

These were my favourite manis from 2018. I bought more stamping plates, and I have a crazy amount of foils and glitter toppers, so I’m sure 2019 will be a similarly colourful year for nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 612 Devil In Me, Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea & Stamping

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post!

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 612 Devil In Me (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers). This polish is matte, and it does feel and look a bit like velvet. I wanted a shiny blue, so I used clear polish to get rid of the matte look.

I painted my ring fingers and pinkies with Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea (3 coats). This is a silver holo polish, but the holo effect isn’t very strong.

I used an unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate (pinkies, middle fingers) as well as MoYou London‘s Hipster 22 plate (index and ring fingers, thumbs).

The polishes I stamped with are Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match (blue) and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pewter (silver).

This is another mani I liked. It wasn’t perfect, but it came pretty close to what I wanted it to look like.

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

Hi there! I’ve got another Christmas Nail Ideas post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (green), PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (white), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (gold). The glitter top coat I used on my middle fingers is Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper.

I like this mani because it was easy to do, and because it doesn’t look like any of those standard Christmas manis that everyone (and that includes me) does this time of year.

What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry! & Stamping With Pueen 106

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry! (2 coats). This is a lovely blue shade. It’s pretty, and it’s a great base for stamping.

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 106 plate which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection. This is a gorgeous plate. I’ve used it before, and I have no doubt I’ll be using it again soon!

I stamped with 2 polishes – Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto and a random gold metallic polish (but I don’t remember which one).
