Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 402 Urban Purple & Foils

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 402 Urban Purple (2 coats).

I love this polish. The colour is gorgeous, and I’m very happy with the quality of the polish. The formula is a dream to work with, and the polish dries quickly.

Then I used some rainbow foil to add some sparkle to my nails – and to make my mani look 100% unique. 🙂

I really liked this mani. It looked fresh and lively. Do you like foil manis? Have you tried nail foils? If not, why not? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Hello Kitty Raspberry & Foils / A-Z Nail Art Challenge Encore – Recreate A Favourite (V – Vibrant Nails)

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

For this mani I painted my nails with my raspberry-coloured Hello Kitty polish (2 coats). I like this polish because the formula is a dream to work with, and the colour is super pretty! 🙂

I decided to beautify my nails with the help of foils. I chose a random leftover gold foil and a transparent holographic foil. Then I applied 1 coat of clear polish. Job done!

I’m including this mani in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. The individual challenge is called Encore – Recreate A Favourite. And the challenge I’ve chosen to redo is V – Vibrant Nails.

I liked this mani. The base colour is simply gorgeous, and the foils effects are quite eye-catching! How do you like this mani? Is this a mani you’d sport? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Beauty UK Purple & Foils

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with a purple Beauty UK polish (2 coats) that came in a nail polish gift set. I think this purple polish is fantastic (formula, brush, application, opacity, drying time) – but it’s too bad it doesn’t have a name!

Initially I wanted to stamp. However, I decided to do a foil mani.

I used a random gold foil and some leftover fuchsia foil to make my mani stand out – and it worked!

I got lots of compliments – one of my co-workers said she loved the drama in this mani! Pretty cool, eh? 🙂

Yes, I was really happy with this mani! How do you like it? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 09 Instant Passion & Foils / A-Z Nail Art Challenge D-Diva Nails

Hi there! Since this week is Nail Week, I have another Nail Of The Day post for you today.

This mani is also my attempt at Diva Nails which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge which I’m doing for no one but myself!

I just wanted to do plain dark red nails, but I was bored of the simple mani before the polish had dried. So I kept thinking… now what? Then I had an idea – foils!

So… I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 09 Instant Passion (1 coat). And I used some leftover gold foil to add a little sparkle to my nails. Then one coat of clear polish – job done! 🙂

I really liked this quick and easy to do mani. What do you think? Feel free to let me know your thoughts. And thanks for reading!
