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!
