Nail Of The Day – Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Sunburst & Stamping With Pict You Stamping Plates

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Sunburst (2 coats). This is a lovely holographic polish. I like it a lot!

For the images I used 2 of my new stamping plates – Pict You PY-J025 and Pict You PY-J028.

I stamped with a random black polish.

I liked this mani very much. The base colour is amazing, and I love the images on my new stamping plates.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This means that Nail Week has come to an end. I’ll be back with a regular product review tomorrow.

But let me tell you about this mani! I painted my nails with Barry M Matte Nail Paint Espresso (2 coats). This is a terrible polish. Tip wear and chips within hours. I had to keep filling in the tips…

I applied blobs of white nail polish with a sponge to make the lighter colours pop.

The blue and pink colours I used are from the double-ended Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 300 Pop Art. The glitter top coat I used is Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion.

This isn’t my best galaxy mani, but it’s not the worst either. I did like the mani. But next time I’ll try it without the blue.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Revlon & More

Hi there! A few weeks ago I did a galaxy mani. It wasn’t my favourite galaxy mani, but I have to say that I still liked how it turned out.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply blobs of Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White to my nails.

I used a few colour polishes (and more small make-up sponge pieces) for the accents: Collection 2000 Hot Looks 30 Sherbet Lemons (yellow), Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon (pale turquoise), and NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (pink).

The beautiful glitter top coat is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova – which happens to be my all-time favourite glitter top coat!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Manhattan, Sally Hansen & Primark

Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. I did this galaxy mani a few weeks ago. Here’s how:

I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge and Primark’s PS… Marshmallow polish to sponge white blobs onto my nails. Then I used 2 colour polishes, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies and Manhattan Mode Pilot 01M, to fill in the white blobs. I used a sponge for this too.

There’s no galaxy mani without glitter, so I applied 1 coat of Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova. This is my favourite glitter top coat!

I’ve done better galaxy manis in the past. However, I still think this one looked quite cool. Do you like nail art? Have you tried to do galaxy nails before? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Max Factor, Primark & Essence

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

Alrighty, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds Hot Black To Go (2 coats, but 1 would have been enough).

Then I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply white blobs (Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow) to my nails.

I repeated the process with 2 random colour polishes – Essence Colour & Go 06 Instant Happiness and Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink.

The glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova which is not just my favourite glitter top coat, but most likely also the most beautiful and the most versatile glitter top coat in the history of the planet.

I really liked this mani. It was inspited by boredom, but it turned out to be quite cool. Have you tried galaxy nails? If not, why not? Would you like to try galaxy nails? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!
