Nail Of The Day – Revlon Top Speed 570 Vintage & Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 570 Vintage (2 easy coats).

This polish is amazing! It dries quickly and it looks utterly gorgeous. I love it!

The glitter top coat is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti (2 coats).

This is a very cute glitter top coat. But I’d like it more if the glitter-to-clear-polish ratio was higher.

I always need to apply 2 coats to have a decent amount of glitter on my nails when 1 coat should do it.

I liked the look of this mani a lot, and I look forward to plenty of glitter manis this coming autumn and winter.

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Candy Corn, Ciaté Cabaret & Ciaté Party Shoes

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers). This is a textured polish. I never really understood the appeal, but I do have a few textured polishes, and I think they work well in mixed manis.

I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with Ciaté Cabaret (2 coats). This is a nice purplish polish. I do like the colour.

The glitter top coat I used is Ciaté Party Shoes. It has a remarkably dull finish and it would have required an extra coat of clear polish on top. Yikes!

All in all, this would have been a decent mani if it hadn’t been for the awful top coat. I would have applied a coat of clear polish, but it literally too late – I had to go to bed! 🤷‍♀️

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 305 Naughty But Nice, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 540 Glitter Gun, Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 280 Gummy Grape

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 280 Gummy Grape (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers). I never really cared for textured nail polish, but this is definitely a nice one.

For the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 305 Naughty But Nice (2 coats). The glitter top coat is Sally Hansen Xreme Wear 540 Glitter Gun (1 coat).

Rimmel did a great job with this bright and pretty red. I don’t like red nail polish in general, but I like this one!

Nail Of The Day – Technic Double Trouble Festival

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good week so far. I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I used one of the double-ended nail polishes I rediscovered when we moved house – Technic Double Trouble Festival. I’m wearing 2 coats of the raspberry polish and 2 coats of the glitter top coat.

I’ve had a number of cheap Technic polishes in the past. They were hit and miss. And with Technic, there is always a risk that the brushes are totally messed up, so you can’t even paint your nails properly… Anyhoo, this polish set is really nice. The raspberry polish is pretty, and the rainbow glitter is super cute.

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria, Glitter & Stamping With Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 717

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Today’s post is about a mani I did earlier this month.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used a rainbow glitter top coat to add colour to the grey nails. That cute glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter.

For the images on the blue nails I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 717 stamping plate. I stamped with a random black polish.

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Full Throttle, Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Glitter & Stamping (Nail Fail)

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Fail post for you today!

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Full Throttle (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used Pop Rocks Groupie to add a touch of glitter to the green nails.

And I used my new PY-J023 stamping plate for the leopard spots. I couldn’t find my beloved black Revlon polish, so I stamped with a random black polish – that’s why the images came out so poorly. Boo!

Onto the next mani!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of purple is my favourite nail colour. 😍

The glitter polish I used is Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion. This is a mix of gold, fuchsia and blue micro glitter in a clear base. I love this kind of glitter!

I like the look of this mani. However, my nails look awful. I cleaned 2 places like a maniac when we moved house, and this took quite a toll on my nails. Rubber gloves couldn’t prevent splits and breakages, although I guess they prevented the worst!
