Nail Of The Day – Revlon Top Speed 220 Bubble & Ciaté Confetti

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did a little while ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 220 Bubble (2 coats). I love this colour. It’s full of live. It’s gorgeous.

In order to complete the ‘Barbie’ manicure I applied 1 coat of Ciaté’s Confetti. This top coat is packed with small silver holo glitter. It looked mesmerising in real life.

I wish I had managed to capture the amazingness of the silver holo glitter…

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Gosh 549 Holographic Hero & Stamping With Pueen 76 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge H-Holo

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

This mani is another one that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. And I’m filing this one under H – Holo.

For this mani I painted my nails with Gosh 549 Holographic Hero (2 coats). This holo polish is not great, but holo polishes aren’t readily available in the UK, so I’m actually happy to have this one (and several back-up bottles) in my stash.

I also did a little stamping – and I used Pueen’s 76 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go for that. 🙂

I think this mani looks quite nice. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07 / Nail Art Challenge #13 Animal Print

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post. And this mani is also my attempt at Animal Print nails which is challenge #13 of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea. This polish is supposed to be a holographic nail polish, but the holo effect isn’t very strong. And I would describe the actual colour of this polish as steel. Or steel-y. It’s neither grey nor blue.

The cute sea life images are featured on MoYou’s Doodles 07 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.

I realise that the person who thought up the original 31 Days Nail Art Challenge thought of Animal Print nails as zebra or leopard nails (or something similar). But I didn’t want to do another animal stripes mani so soon. And sea creatures are animals too, so I think I’m OK. 🙂

I like this mani! The holo polish could be prettier, but the images are just too cute. What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

If you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link. In case you’re wondering… yes, I did purchase this stamping plate myself!

Nail Of The Day – Gosh 549 Holographic Hero & Stamping with Pueen 55

Gosh Holographic Hero and StampingHi there! I’ve been sporting really boring manis for the past week. Nothing worth mentioning.

And, of course, I got bored of those plain manis. So I grabbed a holo polish, Gosh 549 Holographic Hero, and my stamping kit.

I applied two coats of Holographic Hero. The polish dried quickly and was opaque in two coats. It’s not the strongest holo polish out there, but I only paid £1.99 for it, so I won’t complain.

Then I chose a stamping plate – Pueen 55 from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet. I opted for the leafy image and stamped it on with Revlon Colorstay Stiletto. I think this mani turned out alright. What do you think? 🙂
