Nail Of The Day – Essence Out Of Space Stories 01 Outta Space Is The Place & Stamping With Pueen 80 / Nail Art Challenge #14 Flowers

Hi there! I’ve got another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂 For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Out Of Space Stories 01 Outta Space Is The Place (two easy coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 80 plate (which is available as part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). And the polish I used to stamp on the flowers is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

This mani also counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge – and it’s for challenge #14 Flowers.

I think this mani turned out alright. I think the images go well with the pearlescent base. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

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 – 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 – Fearne Minty Maggie And Stamping With Pueen Love Elements 26 & 33

NOTDHi there! A few days ago I let my husband pick my nail colour again. He opted for a pale mint green (not my favourite colour), Fearne Minty Maggie.

Minty Maggie is a decent polish that’s almost opaque in one coat – which is unusual for such a light shade. And the polish dried reasonably quickly too. Nice!

Since I’m not the biggest fan of pastel nail colours, it didn’t take me long to decide that I would stamp. And I chose random images from Pueen’s 26 and 33 plates (both plates are part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto, my favourite black non-stamping polish that stamps perfectly.

I’m happy with this mani. I know my nails are quite short and my hands look quite rough at the moment. That’s because they really suffered during the big post-summer clean and clear-out we had last weekend. But they’ll be OK in a few days. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 027 Love Match & Stamping With Manhattan Quick Dry 60 Seconds 46K & Flowers 18 Plate

NYC Love Match Flowers 18Hi there! Today’s post is another nail post. I’ve previously mentioned that orangey colours are my least favourite nail polish colours.

However, I have lots of orange and coral nail polishes, and for some reason I keep buying them.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 027 Love Match – a bright summer orange that’s fully opaque in two thin coats.

The stamping plate I chose is called Flowers 18. It’s a cheap no-name plate I found online.

I liked the green/green, blue/blue and mauve/pink manis I did recently, so I thought I’d try orange/red this time.

I chose an old untried polish, Manhattan Quick Dry 60 Seconds 46K, as my stamping polish. 46K isn’t a glamorous name, but the polish looks nice – it’s a creamy vampy red that also stamps well.

I think this mani turned out OK. The images don’t look that great on my nails, and the colour combo isn’t a favourite. But the mani looked really nice from a few feet away. 🙂 Please feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 242 Aqua Leaf & Stamping With Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch & Flowers 02 Plate

Astor Aqua Leaf StampingHi there! This is a mani from a few weeks ago. In mid-July the UK enjoyed a few really hot summer days – and I wanted a ‘cool’ mani.

I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 242 Aqua Leaf (two coats). I love this fresh and cute shade.

I didn’t want my mani to be too flashy – so I went for a simple green on green look.

I chose Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch as my stamping colour. It’s dark green in the bottle, but it goes on as a pretty medium greeen when it’s stamped on.

And I used my Flowers 02 stamping plate. I have no idea who makes this plate, but many online stores sell it.

I really love how this mani turned out. It looked cool and fresh and it had a strong holiday vibe. 🙂 Do you agree? Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue, Sally Hansen HD 03 Pixel Pretty & Stamping

NYC Sally Hansen Blue plus stampingHi there! A couple of months ago I did this super cute floral mani which drew lots of compliments. And now that my nails look alright again, I thought I’d try the same mani – in reverse. 🙂

So instead of painting my nails white and stamping on blue flowers, this time I did it the other way around. I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue (2 coats), a medium blue with a creamy finish.

Then I added 1 coat of Sally Hansen’s HD 03 Pixel Pretty, a shimmery turquoise which adds a lot of sparkle!

And then I stamped on a few different floral images from different stamping plates – using the fabulous white Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish.

How do you like this mani? And which one do you like better – the original blue on white mani or this one? Feel free to comment and thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion & Stamping With Pueen 51

Rimmel Cocktail Passion plus stampingHi there! I haven’t done a nail post in a while. A few weeks ago I broke two nails (one on each hand), and then I made the mistake of trying out false nail tips (Never again!) which made it even worse.

So I’ve been patient, and now I’m happy to show you this cute mani from last week. I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion, a bright and gorgeous orangey-pinkish coral shade.

I then stamped on a floral image – with the help of my trusted favourite black polish – Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

The floral image is from Pueen’s 51 plate. This plate is available as part of Pueen’s beautiful Stamping Buffet collection.

I really liked this mani. I love the Rimmel polish and Pueen’s 51 plate is just so pretty! 🙂 Feel free to comment and thanks for stopping by.
