Nail Of The Day – Models Own Sarong Wrap, NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry, Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust & Stamping With Pueen 83

Hi there! Happy Monday! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry (2 coats). The glitter top coat I used is Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust (1 coat).

I painted my pinkies and ring fingers with 2 coats of white polish and 2 coats of Models Own Sarong Wrap. The yellow Models Own polish is poorly pigmented, and that’s why I needed to start with a white base underneath.

I stamped with Pueen‘s 83 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani very much. I’ve done purple and yellow manis before, and I know I’ll be doing more purple and yellow manis in the not too distant future. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 120 Red Carpet, Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust & Water Decals / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #1 Red Nails

Hi there! Happy Monday! This week’s going to be NAIL WEEK, so I’ll be posting about manis only.

I’ve also decided to redo the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I’ve done it before (I’ve completed it in summer 2017), and I want to do it again – but on my own terms. I won’t be doing 31 manis in 31 Days, but over the next couple of months.

I might also skip a few individual challenges and replace them with something else, but I’ll try not to pick and choose too much. 🙂

Alright! For this mani, which is challenge #1 RED NAILS, I painted my nails (pinkies, ring fingers) with Revlon Colorstay 120 Red Carpet (2 coats).

I used water decals on my thumbs, index and middle fingers. I tore one of the decals, and another one ended up looking very wrinkly. So I decided to cover up the mistakes with glitter. I chose Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust.

I liked this mani, and I am looking forward to using decals more often. Just a few weeks ago I bought around 130 sheets of nail decals, so I better use them! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 312 Ultra Violet, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies, Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 889 & Stamping With Pueen 99

Hi there! This post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies (1 coat, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel Salon Pro 312 Ultra Violet (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I used Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 889 to add a touch of glitter to the purple nails.

For the images on the blue(ish) nails I used Pueen‘s 99 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The golden polish I stamped with is the sensational Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House & Barry M Jingle Bells

Hi there! This week’s going to be Nail Week. This means that I’ll be posting about manis only.

I’m starting with this mani which I did before Christmas but somehow forgot to post about. Oops!

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House (2 coats).

This is a gorgeous dark green with micro-shimmer. It’s particularly pretty because it’s not brush-strokey at all. Great stuff, Rimmel!

The glitter top coat I used is the wonderful Barry M Jingle Bells. It features gold glitter in various shapes and sizes, as well as red glitter in the shape of winter boots. How cute is this glitter top coat?! 😍

I liked this mani a lot, but I didn’t like any of the photos I took. It was a grey and cloudy day with little natural light, and this photo (taken indoors with plenty of artificial light) was the best of the countless ones I took. In a nutshell, my cuticles look great, but the actual mani doesn’t look very crisp. Ah well…

Nail Of The Day – Primark Holler & Glow Pink Unicorn, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Ciaté Putting On The Ritz & Stamping With MoYou London Suki 16

Hi there! Happy Monday! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark Holler & Glow Pink Unicorn (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats). This polish is described as a long wear polish. And guess what, it is! I “use” my nails a lot, and I only had very minor tip wear after 3 days. Truly impressive stuff!

I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats) on my middle and index fingers and my thumbs. This is supposed to be a long-lasting polish too, but I had to fill in the tips every day.

For the images I used MoYou London‘s Suki 16 plate and (since it was right there) Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

The gold glitter topper I used is the gorgeous Ciaté Putting On The Ritz which has been sititing in my stash for ages. Yes, I regret not trying it sooner!

I liked this mani. Since I had zero inspiration, it was supposed to be a “filler mani”, but it turned out much better than expected.

What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora, Sinful Colors Blue LaLa & Stamping With MoYou London Sailor 06

Hi there! I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

Whilst this mani looked great in real life, it didn’t look great in any of the photos I took. Based on the photo, you’re forgiven for thinking it was a nail fail.

Alright… for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora (2 coats, pinkies and ring fingers). This is one of the textured (= rough) glitter polishes that were the rage a few years ago.

For the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats).

I decided to stamp. The marine-themed stamping plate I used is MoYou London Sailor 06.

The gold stamping polish is Sally Hansen Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou London, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.
