Nail Of The Day – MUA White Wash, Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Boy You’re So Fine, Orly Basket Case & Nails Inc. Bow Street (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I wanted to do for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. However, the mani didn’t really ‘work’.

For this mani I painted my nails with MUA White Wash (white base), Orly Basket Case (pink base) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (milky purple).

The glitter topper is Nails Inc. Bow Street.

I also did some stamping, and I used my QA 88 stamping plate, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 370 Uptempo Plum, and Essence’s White Stamping Polish (which, unfortunately, has been discontinued).

I think this mani is not very special, and it’s definitely not one of my favourites. It was just about OK for a weekend. Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon 902 Craving Coral & Stamping With Pueen 73

Hi there! I think it’s time for another Nail Of The Day post. So here it is!

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 902 Craving Coral. I don’t love the colour, but I bought the polish (years ago), so I have to use it every now and then. And that’s what I’m doing! 🙂

I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp a remotely floral (?) image onto my nails. Said image is featured on Pueen’s 73 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

I didn’t love this mani. The images are far from perfect. This was 100% my fault because I was in a hurry. But in real life the mani didn’t look too bad. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 310 Vintage Rose & Stamping With Pueen 93

upload-2Hi there! Today I’m showing you another mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 310 Vintage Rose. I really like this polish. It’s almost a one-coater. And I love, love, love the wide and flat Revlon Colorstay brush.

The floral image is from Pueen’s 93 stamping plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

The white polish I used to stamp on the images is Essence’s white Stampy polish.

I think this mani turned out alright. I somehow managed to ruin the image on the middle finger, but all in all I think the mani looks OK.

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

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Magenta Moves & Stamping With Pueen 74

Sally Hansen Magenta Moves Pueen 74Hi there! I’ve got a nail post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Magenta Moves (2 coats).

I love this polish. It’s almost a one-coater, it dries really fast, and the colour pops!

Initially I wanted to do a glitter mani, but then I opted for stamping.

I chose a remotely floral image from Pueen’s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

The white polish I stamped with is Essence’s fantastic white stamping polish (they call it stampy polish).

I think this mani looks quite nice. Sure, I could have taken a little more care to ensure the images would go on perfectly. But these little flaws are only visible in the photo. In real life no one noticed. 🙂

Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading!

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 – Blood & Bats For Halloween – Featuring Essence, Revlon & Maybelline / Nail Art Challenge #23 Inspired By A Movie

bloody bats nail artHi there! Today’s post is about my Halloween 2016 mani – blood & bats.

I had the idea to do this mani when I did my Halloween Nail Ideas post earlier this month. In that post I showed you photos of a bat mani and a blood spatter mani – and back then I knew that I wanted to combine the two.

So for this mani I painted my nails with Essence The Gel Polish 33 Wild White Days (1 coat). Then I applied a few blobs of red polish – Maybelline Colorshow 349 Power Red – with (a small piece of) a make-up sponge.

I used two no-name stamping plates – M94 (Konad dupe) and A13 – and my favourite black polish, Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto, to stamp on the bats.

I think this mani turned out nicer than expected. I wasn’t sure if a sponge would be the right tool to create a bloody background for the bats – but I think it looks quite authentic. So yes, I chose the right tool for this nail art job! 🙂

I’m also including this mani in my 31 Days Nail Art Challenge as #23 Inspired By A Movie. The movie would be ‘Bats’, a shockingly bad movie featuring bloodthirsty bats (and with plenty of shockingly bad acting).

If you’re still looking for last-minute Halloween nail art inspiration, please check out all the manis I’ve done this month – they’re all Halloween-themed! I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween tomorrow. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Accessorize Mineral Violet & Stamping (Nail Fail)

accessorize mineral violet and stampingHi there! Over the past two months I’ve done more manis than I showed you. So I thought I’d do another nail week this week.

OK, let’s get to the mani! I painted my nails with Accessorize Mineral Violet, a pale purple-to-grey duochrome. The polish is quite thin and even after three coats it still wasn’t opaque. 😦

The polish took ages to dry, and it bubbled up on my nails. Not good. At all. But the worst thing is that I have 2 bottles of Mineral Violet…

Now what do you do when you don’t have the time to redo your mani? You stamp. Why? Because stamping conceals a lot. 🙂

I grabbed a random stamping plate (sorry, I don’t remember which one), picked a random image, and then I just started to stamp. As you can see the image didn’t transfer well at all – so this mani was a complete nail fail!
