Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Barry M Christmas Tree

Hi there! If you read my blog regularly you might remember that all my nail posts in October were Halloween-themed.

I really enjoyed thinking up halloweeney manis the entire month. And because of this I thought I should try to do Christmas-themed manis only in December.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 easy coats). This is a really good white polish that’s 90p only. You need to try it!

The glitter topper I used is Barry M Christmas Tree. It’s the perfect Christmas gitter topper!

I really liked this mani! It was super easy to do, and it looked very christmassey. Doy ou agree? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, Andrea Fulerton Art Attack & Rock Star Glitter

Funky Town Glitter NYC A Perfect Day Andrea FulertonHi there! I’ve done a lot of stamping recently, so I thought it’s time to do a glitter mani again.

I chose NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (grey) and the blue polish from Andrea Fulerton’s Nail Boutique Art Attack Trio as my base colours.

The NYC polish is fantastic in every way – but the Andrea Fulerton polish annoyed me a bit. It took ages to dry – well over 45 minutes per coat. Fortunately I was watching a movie, so my hands weren’t busy.

The glitter is one of my favourite glitter mixes – it’s called Funky Town and I think it’s the ultimate rock star glitter mix.

I’ve done a mani – quite similar to this one – with the same glitter mix before. If you’d like to compare the manis and tell me which one you like better, you can find the other mani here.

I really like both manis, but I think this one looks fresher. I don’t know why, but my husband thinks it’s because the glitter looks so alive on the grey polish. Well, who am I to argue? 🙂

Feel free to let me know which mani you like better – the one from last year or this one. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Underwater Mani – Featuring Rimmel, Essence, Astor, Beauty UK & Sugar Bubbles

Sugar BubblesHi there! I loved my last underwater mani so much that I did another one.

This time I thought I’d use my newest glitter polish – which reminded me very much of mermaids – and my Sugar Bubbles SB 031 stamping plate.

I used these polishes:
Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue (base colour, pinky).
Beauty UK White (base colour, ring and middle fingers).
Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (base colour, index finger and thumb).
Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish in White (stamped image on pinky, index finger, thumb).
Rimmel Love Glitter 034 A Crush On You (glitter topper ring and middle fingers).

So here it is – my underwater mani! I think it turned out great. What do you think?

Nail Of The Day – Revlon 799 Plum Night & Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered

Revlon Plum Night Sally Hansen SplatteredHi there! Today’s post is another NOTD. The base colour is Revlon 799 Plum Night. It’s a deep, dark purple – it’s almost black.

I love dark purples because they usually look amazing under glitter toppers – especially gold toppers.

I then picked one of my favourite toppers – Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered. I love this topper because it’s got gold flakes and flecks, black and pink hex glitter and tiny coral glitter strands.

I think this mani is both cute and elegant – it’s like an explosion of jewels and gems on purple velvet! 🙂 I really love this combo, but please let me know what you think!

Nail Of The Day – Nails Inc. Baker Stret & Claire’s All Sorts

022016 Nails Inc Baker Street and Claire's All SortsHi there! Since I’ve done two nail posts since Monday, I decided this week would be nail week. 🙂 And I hope you’re enjoying nail week as much as I do!

So for this mani I dug out one of the more interesting glitter toppers I have. But let’s start from the beginning.

At first I painted my nails with Nails Inc.’s Baker Street (2 coats), a beautiful medium blue that really pops.

Then I painted on one coat of glitter topper. This one’s called All Sorts and it’s from Claire’s Accessories. This glitter topper features lime green, yellow and pink glitter in different shapes and sizes. Btw, I love the yellow squares the most!

I think this mani came out wonderful. The colours pop and it looks fun. If I were a rock star, this is the kind of mani I’d wear all the time! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Orly Terracotta & Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat 600 Fuzzy Fantasy

Hi there! I thought after all the face, eye and body products it’s time for a nail post. Yes, I’m a nail nut, too. I know the photo is huge – sorry about that – but I wanted to show off the Fuzzy Coat. 😀 Sooo… today I’m wearing Orly Terracotta (two coats) and Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy (one coat).
Orly Terracotta PLUS Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy
Orly Terracotta is a bright pinkish red; Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy is a clear polish packed with matte green and white glitter strands. At first I wasn’t sure how this combination would turn out, but once the Fuzzy Coat was applied, I thought it looked cute. Mr Strawberryblonde certainly agrees. 🙂
