Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Essie Rock At The Top

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats).

I don’t love mint green nail colours, but I’ve learned how to make them work for me – with the help of nail stamping equipment and glitter toppers. 🙂

And this time I reached for a glitter topper. 1 coat of Essie’s Rock At The Top (which I picked up for £2!) was all it took to make this mani look glamorous.

I liked this mani. It wasn’t the most creative mani, but I liked the fresh and summery look of it.

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nails

Christmas maniHi there! I couldn’t decide between green or red nails the other day. So I went for both! The result is this easy Christmas mani.

I chose China Glaze With Love and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green as my base colours.

With Love is the ultimate Christmas red. And Forest Green is a great Christmas tree green.

The next step was finding the perfect gold glitter topper – which is always easier said than done. Especially, when you have dozens of glitter toppers!

Eventually I chose Essie As Gold As It Gets. I’m happy with this topper because it looks like gold dust and it’s perfectly christmassey!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Quick’N Go 321 & Gold Glitter

Astor Quick'N Go 321 gold glitterHi there! After lots of manis involving foils or stamping I’ve done a really simple mani the other day.

I couldn’t think of anything spectacular, so I just painted my nails (two coats) with Astor Quick’N Go 321 – a pale vintage rose colour with a cream finish.

I wasn’t sure which kind of glitter would look best, so I chose a simple gold glitter as a top coat. I’m sorry, I don’t remember which one because they all look the same. And I meant it – they’re not similar, they all do look the same.

I’m quite happy with the Astor polish (another great find from Poundworld) which didn’t chip until day four.

The gold topper didn’t feel too rough. Good suff – no regular to coat needed!

Whilst this isn’t my favourite mani, I think it looks alright.
