Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL216

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (2 coats). I love this polish. The colour really zings!

For the images I used my relatively new Maniology BM-XL216 stamping plate. It’s a very beautiful and versatile plate. 😍

The black polish I stamped with is Essence‘s amazing black stamping polish. Unfortunately, Essence discontinued their stamping polishes. I should have stocked up in time!

Anyhoo, I liked this mani a lot. I’ll be redoing this mani soon, but next time I’ll be doing a green base.

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With Biutee 10 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #7 Black & White Nails

Hi there! This week is going to be NAIL WEEK. This means that I’ll be posting about nail stuff only. 😎

I did another mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing on my own terms – not in 31 days and not in chronological order). This mani is for challenge #7 BLACK & WHITE NAILS.

And for this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is a fantastic polish. I love it!

For the images I used my relatively new Biutee 10 stamping plate and Essence‘s amazing black stamping polish. Too bad that Essence discontinued their stamping polishes. 🙁

I liked this mani a lot. I know I’ll be using this stamping plate a lot in the not too distant future!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon 260 Bold Sangria & Stamping With Pueen 51

uploadHi there! Today’s post is the last post this week – so it’s the last post this nail week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 260 Bold Sangria (2 coats). I think Bold Sangria is one of the best dark purple polishes out there. Great quality, lovely shade! Thanks, Revlon!

And I used Essence’s white stamping polish and Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) to stamp floral images onto my nails.

I didn’t like this mani because I managed to smudge all the images on my right hand. I think I moisturised my hands too soon after cleaning up around the nails with nail polish remover…

However, in real life the mistakes were hardly visible. Well, in real life no one stares at my nails and no one’s looking for mistakes. 😉 And I did get a few compliments on this mani, so it wasn’t too bad.

Like I said, this is the last nail post this nail week. I haven’t done a weekly recap post today, so if you think you’ve missed a post or if you’d like to see the other manis I’ve written about this week (or ever…), click here and scroll down. I’m back with a “regular” post tomorrow. So in the meantime… Happy Sunday!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night & Stamping

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I tried in December. It was supposed to be some kind of a Christmas tree mani – but unfortunately it didn’t really look christmassey at all.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night (2 coats). I like this polish very much because the formula is easy to work with and this polish is almost a one-coater.

I used Essence’s brilliant white Stampy polish to stamp on the Christmas tree images. The stamping plate I used is a no-name plate.

I think this mani looked quite OK – but it didn’t really work out as a Christmas mani. So from this point of view it’s a partial fail.

Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue & Stamping With Pueen 76 / Nail Art Challenge #5 Blue Nails

upload-1Hi there! I’ve got another nail post for you today.

I’m also continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge, and today’s mani is for challenge #5 Blue Nails. Easy, eh? 😉

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

I used Essence’s white stamping polish to stamp on the floral images. The stamping plate I used was Pueen’s 76 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

I like how this mani turned out. It’s not too flashy, but it’s not too boring. It’s a nice and safe stamping mani. How do you like my nails? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Boots No.7 Devil’s Delight & Stamping With Pueen 77 / Nail Art Challenge #1 Red Nails

uploadHi there! I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge, and today’s post is about Red Nails (Nail Art Challenge #1).

For this mani I painted my nails with Boots No.7 Devil’s Delight (two coats). I like the formula of this polish. It’s perfect. And the No.7 brush (wide, flat) is great too.

If you know me, you know I can’t just paint my nails and leave it at that. And I think the Nail Art Challenge is worthy of more than just plain red nails.

So I decided to stamp! I chose a cute image from Pueen’s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). The white stamping polish is Essence’s fantastic Stampy Polish.

I’m pleased with this mani and I really like the red and white colour combination. Do you agree? Feel free to let me know what you think. Oh, and the next mani might be ‘inspired by fashion’ (I’m thinking of something…) so let’s see how it goes! And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Quick Dry Nail Polish 46K & Stamping With Pueen 44

Manhattan 46K Pueen 44Hi there! Since today’s nail post concludes nail week, I’ve saved the best for last. 🙂

I painted my nails with Manhattan Quick Dry Nail Polish 46K (two coats). I really liked the creamy dark red colour and I was pleased that the polish dried quickly.

Many quick dry polishes are dry to the touch in no time, but they still take a while to dry completely. This one didn’t take long. Fantastic!

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 44 plate from Pueen’s Love Elements stamping collection.

I opted for two different images featuring stars. And I stamped these on with my white Essence Stampy Polish.

I really liked this mani because it was easy to do and it looked quite cute. 🙂 What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading!
