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 – Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy & China Glaze Pure Joy / Mrs Santa Nails

upload-1Hi there! I hope everyone’s still enjoying the holidays. Today is one of my favourite days of the year – Boxing Day! 🙂

Why? Because the big 50% off in-store post-Christmas sale is on! I’ll show you all the stuff I bought – in a few days. Now onto the mani!

I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet’N’ Spicy (one coat). And I topped off my mani with two coats of China Glaze Pure Joy, a limited edition glitter topper from a few years ago.

Pure Joy is a densely packed red and gold glitter topper. But I still wanted a simple red base just so that I could skimp on the glitter topper.

Whilst I have dozens of red polishes, I only have 2 bottles of China Glaze’s Pure Joy. And I want to wear this polish again and again and again. By the way, Pure Joy isn’t just a Mrs Santa glitter polish, it’s also great for Halloween – if you’re going for a non-gory vampy vampire or devil look. 😉

Anyway, I really like my Mrs Santa nails. How do you like this mani? Feel free to let me know if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!

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?

Rimmel Glitter Topper Haul

Hi there! Here’s another non-review post. I went to the new B&M Bargains store near my place. They didn’t have many beauty products, but they had Rimmel glitter toppers – in bags of 2 for £1.99 each. That’s a total of £3.98 for four glitter toppers. Not bad!
Rimmel Glitter Toppers
I picked these glitter toppers: Rimmel Glitter 021 Bedazzle, Rimmel Love Glitter 032 All Glittered Up, 031 Mistletoe Mischief, 030 Queen of Bling. I think All Glittered Up and Mistletoe Mischief look very promising. I can’t wait to play with them!
