Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With Pueen 56

HI there! Happy Saturday! I’ve got another Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

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

For the stamping bit I chose Pueen‘s 56 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection). This is one of a number of stamping plates that I’ve never used, even though it’s been in my stash for ages.

The black polish I stamped with is a home-made “stamping” polish.

I didn’t like the mani because I didn’t like the images. I might give this stamping plate another try, or I might just give it away.

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend! This week is going to be Nail Week. Yes, that means I’ll post about manis only. And today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago. I’ve done a very similar mani for Halloween 2017, so you could say I’m recycling my own ideas. 😀

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is a great white polish. I’m glad I stocked up because I haven’t seen this polish in quite some time.

I used an unnamed tomato red Beauty UK polish and a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply the “blood”. For the bat images I used MoYou London‘s Festive 53 plate (big bats), an unbranded stamping plate (small bats) and my home-made “stamping” polish.

I likd this mani. But I think I should have chosen a more vibrant red polish for the blood effect. Oh, and 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 – Sinful Colors Blue Lala, Bourjois Techno Bar A Tokyo & Stamping With Pueen 74

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats). I really love this polish. The formula is great, the polish dries quickly, and the colour is stunning!

I wanted a sparkly mani, so I top-coated my nails with Bourjois Techno Bar A Tokyo 44 (1 coat). This top coat is a pale (almost transparent) light blue polish packed with iridescent hex glitter. 🙂

And then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and a home-made black polish.

I didn’t love this mani, but I think it looked alright. Do you like blue nails? What colour are your nails right now? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Pueen 51

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink (2 coats). This is a lovely polish. Great colour, quick-dry and easy to work with formula, lovely glossy finish… truly great stuff. Thank you, Max Factor!

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply a few blobs of purple polish (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid).

For the images I used Pueen‘s 51 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and a black “stamping” polish I made from black polish and black eyeshadow. 🙂

I liked this mani. It didn’t look perfect, but I really liked the bright and optimistic look of it. What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

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

For this mani I painted my nails with…
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers, thumbs), and
Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (2 easy coats, middle and index fingers).

I used Pueen‘s 93 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping collection).

I think this mani looked alright. But I love purple and black, so I might be biased. 🙂 Do you like purple and black nails? Which nail polish colours are your favourites? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

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!
