Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven & Essence Glamaxy Far Far Away

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (2 easy coats).

I love these milky purple shades. Of all the nail colours (and finishes) out there, “milky purple” is my favourite nail colour.

I also used one one of my favourite top coats, Essence Glamaxy Far Far Away (1 coat). This is a gorgeous rainbow flakie top coat. It doesn’t photograph well, but you can catch a glimpse of its incredible colour-shifting beauty in this photo.

I really liked this mani. It was a simple mani, it was super easy to do, but it was very eye-catching!

Do you like purple nails? Do you glitter flakie top coats? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. 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 – 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 – Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue & Stamping With Sugar Bubbles SB 031

Hi there! Today’s post is about a cute marine-themed mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue (2 coats).

The colour looks nice, but I really don’t like this polish at all. It stains badly. I should use it as a stamping polish only – this should be OK.

Anyway, since I already had a dark blue base, I decided to do (another) marine-themed mani. So I used Sugar Bubbles‘ cute SB 031 stamping plate.

And I double-stamped with Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold).

I really like this mani. It’s like… the sea, marine creatures and sunlight. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy & Stamping With Pueen 77 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge L – Love

Hi there! Today’s post is about my Valentine’s Day mani. Quite late, huh?

Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

I decided to double-stamp, and I used 2 non-stamping polishes for this – Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold) and NYC In A Minute 230 Penn Station (red).

I think this mani was alright. It was nothing special, but it looked cute. And I really liked the double-stamping effect!

This mani goes in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file it under LLove! How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue & Essence Mountain Calling Snow Effect Top Coat

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

I thought that a simple winter mani would be nice. So I opted for snowflakes on a blue background.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue (2 easy coats).

And I used Essence’s Mountain Calling Snow Effect top coat to add snowflakes to an otherwise unspectacular mani.

I really liked this mani because it looked cute. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! Today’s nail of the day post is about a mani I did a little while ago. I didn’t love the mani, so I wasn’t sure whether to do a post or not… well, here we are!

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam (2 coats). I don’t like this polish. The colour is a mix of blue, green and gold and it has a metallic (almost foil) finish. It’s a mess.

Then I thought that double-stamping might save the mani. (It didn’t work!) I used Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Revlon Briliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold) to stamp images onto my nails. The stamping plate I used is MoYou‘s super cute Doodles 07 plate.

I really didn’t like this mani. Quite a few ladies at work told me how much they loved this particular mani (?). However, it’s definitely one of my least favourite manis of 2017.

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 04 Instant Love & Essence Glamaxy Top Coat 34 Glamaxy Far, Far Away / A-Z Nail Art Challenge X – X-Plain To Me Why You’re Doing Red Nails Again

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This means that Nail Week comes to an end as well.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 04 Instant Love.

This polish is a true one-coater. Great quality! Essence was stupid to discontinue the entire Colour Boost collection.

The top coat I used is the one and only Essence Glamaxy 34 Glamaxy Far, Far Away.

This is the most beautiful flakie topper. No matter which base colour you choose, this flakie topper will always look good. Too bad that Essence discontinued this gem as well.

I’ve done this mani for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge which I’m doing on my own terms. This mani is for the X-Plain To Me Why You’re Doing Red Nails Again challenge.

Now let me explain why I’m doing red nails again… the reason is that I have too many red nail polishes. I think red is one of the most boring nail colours, and that’s why I tend to neglect the red polishes in my stash. So this challenge provided the perfect opportunity to do red nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Essence Out Of Space Stories 06 We Will Spock You & MoYou London Doodles 07 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge U – Underwater

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This mani is my Underwater mani.

I started by painting my nails with Essence Out Of Space Stories 06 We Will Spock You. This isn’t the greatest silver holo polish, but it does the job.

I used MoYou London’s Doodles 07 plate and Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (the dark blue polish I stamped with) to complete this mani.

I’m happy with this mani. I know I did a very similar mani not too long ago – but I just love holo + cuteness + all things marine. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy, Essence Glitter Jewels 03 Glitz & Glam, Orly Liquid Vinyl And Stamping With Pueen

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a random mani that I did a while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy. The black base on the accent nail is Orly Liquid Vinyl. The glitter is Essence Glitter Jewels 03 Glitz & Glam.

I stamped with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Pueen’s 54 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

I didn’t like the colour combo, and I’ve never liked this stamping plate (I’ve never used it before). So, I didn’t like this mani. But it was OK for the 2 days that I wore it.

Onto new (and better) nail adventures! 🙂
