Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer & Stamping With Maniology BM-S161 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #12 Stripes

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. I did this mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. It’s #12 STRIPES (as you can see, I went for animal stripes).

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer (2 coats). This is a beautiful polish. It’s bursting with pigment (it’s almost a one-coater), and I love the soft yellow shade.

For the images I used Maniology‘s BM-S161 stamping plate (which is part of their Fuzzy & Ferocious stamping plate collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer & Stamping With Pueen 72 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge Y – Yellow Nails

Hi there! My first Nail Of The Day post of 2018 is about a mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge (Y-Yellow Nails).

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 05 Instant Summer. This is the best yellow polish I’ve ever owned. Why Essence discontinued this gem (and the entire Colour Boost collection) I’ll never understand…

Anyhoo, I wanted to do Sponge Bob nails, but then I decided to stamp! I used Pueen’s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection), and Rimmel’s 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I really like this mani because it’s bright and happy. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails / Nail Art Challenge #31 Recreate A Favourite – Galaxies

Hi there! Today’s post is about the galaxy mani I did the other day. For this super easy mani I painted my nails with Revlon 999 Blackest Black (2 coats).

Then I used small pieces of a make-up sponge to apply different colour polishes to my nails.

I used 4 different Essence Colour Boost nail colours: Instant Friendship (pale nude pink), Instant Feeling (dusty lavender), Instant Summer (yellow), and Instant Match (blue).

I liked how my nails looked at this point. However, I knew I wanted star dust too! So I applied 1 coat of the one and only Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

This mani is 1 of the 3 encores I’m doing for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. This would be challenge #31 Recreate A Favourite II.

How do you like this mani? I have to say that I love it. I can’t stop staring at my nails! 😀 Feel free to let me know if you like this mani. And thanks for reading!
