Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Foils

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a few months ago.

I’ve wanted to do a foil tutorial for ages, and I wanted to use this photo for said tutorial, but I haven’t had the time to put everything together. But I hope to do a proper tutorial next month!

Alright, back to this mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats). I like this black polish!

And whilst this polish looked nice on its own, I wanted more than plain black nails. So I used blue and fuchsia foils to add some colour to my nails. Job done!

I was very happy with how this mani turned out. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go & Foils

upload-2Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go. Whilst this polish doesn’t dry in 60 seconds (or 120, or 180…), I do like it!

Hot Black To Go is almost a one-coater (I need to try if it stamps!), and it’s perfect for foil manis! 🙂 But let’s move on… for this mani I used a colourful foil (with a somewhat psychedelic pattern) which I applied several ‘layers’ of.

How does this work? It’s super easy. All you have to do is press the foils onto the near-dry-yet-still-tacky nail polish and peel them off again – it’s almost like ripping off a band aid! 😀

I think this mani turned out alright. It’s considerably more colourful than intended, but I couldn’t help myself. I just kept adding to it! Also, many apologies for the so-so picture. Foil manis can be difficult to capture on camera, and they can look ‘rough’ in pictures – but they’ll always look better in real life.

I’ll do a tutorial on foils shortly! It’s going to be fun, I promise. And it’s super easy to do! Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 001 Evil & Foils

uploadHi there! I haven’t done a foil mani in ages – and I don’t even know why. So, finally, I did another one!

At first I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 001 Evil. Not too long ago, when I couldn’t find my black Revlon Colorstay polish, I used this polish for stamping. However, 001 Evil is better for actual nail painting than for stamping.

Since I have many leftover foils in different colours, choosing the right colours wasn’t easy. I started with a gold foil which made the mani look christmassey right away. So to avoid an unseasonably christmassey finish, I used blue and fuchsia foils too.

I’m happy with how the mani turned out. And I got several compliments which made me realise I need to do foil manis more often. I might do another one in a few days. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thank for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Unicorn Puke Foil Mani

galaxy foilsHi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago when my nails were shorter. I’m only doing the post now because I didn’t save the photo where I’d normally save it.

But let’s start! I used Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab as my base colour. I really like this black polish because it doesn’t dry too quickly (great for foils).

I let the polish dry to the point where it would be tacky – and then I started to press different foils (rainbow, gold, blue, purple, red, green, pink, etc) onto my nails. I repeated this process until all the nails looked like they were covered in unicorn puke. 😀

Then I let the mani dry for a while before I applied one coat of regular clear polish.

And this is the finished mani. I’m sorry the nails look messy in the photo – I should have cleaned up around the cuticles before taking the photo. The blurriness is real though – that’s what the mani looked like. 🙂 Sorry about the word puke. But I looked at the finished mani and I thought ‘this is what unicorn puke must look like’. There it was again! Oops! Anyway, thanks for stopping by. The next post will be a regular product review, I promise!

Nail Of The Day – Rainbow Foils

072015 Foils2Hi there! Today’s post is a short one about the foil mani I did the other day.

I had to do something with my nails but I didn’t have much time as it was quite late already and I knew I’d be waking up with sheet marks the next day if I painted my nails.

So I went for an all-over rainbow mani using leftover bits from foils in all colours.

The foil mani looks a bit patchy and uneven in the photo. However, in real life it was the exact opposite – even and without any visible bald spots.

I’ve done countless foil manis which looked much, much better, but I think this mani looks kind of cute. 🙂 I think I will do another rainbow mani soon.
