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!

Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours 345 & Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 40 Midnight Glitz

Hi there! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great start into the new week. 😊 I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today…

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours 345 (2 coats). This is a quick dry polish that actually does dry in no time. Awesome stuff!

The glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 40 Midnight Glitz. This top coat contains medium sized black hex glitter as well as gold holographic glitter in different shapes and sizes.

I liked this mani, and I will redo it once my nails have grown a bit longer again.

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D & Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post.

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D (2 coats). I love this beautiful raspberry shade, but the polish could have dried faster. A lot faster!

The cute glitter polish I used is Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered. I love this glitter polish. Unfortunately, this one dries super slowly too!

I like the look of the 2 polishes, but I didn’t do my “homework” properly. I was sloppy with the cleaning up around the cuticles, and I could have given a certain cuticle a gentle push back. Anyhoo… what colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment?

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey & Barry M Amethyst Glitter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey (2 coats). I wonder why they chose this name for this brown (!) polish…

I wanted to stamp, but I thought the base colour was a bit too dark. So I decided to use a glitter top coat. I chose Barry M Amethyst Glitter – a super cute rainbow glitter top coat!

I didn’t know where I was headed when I started to paint my nails. Because of this I’m very happy that the mani turned out the way it did. I liked it a lot! It wasn’t special, but I think it looked cute.
