Nail Of The Day – Accessorize Pink Spice & Stamping With JQ-L04

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

For this mani I paited my nails with Accessorize Pink Spice. I’m not a big fan of this colour, but I can’t resist a bargain, and this polish was £1.20.

Unspectacular nail colours are often the most amazing backdrops for stamping “nail art” (which isn’t really nail art because there’s no skill required and, believe me, everyone can do it).

So I stamped! I used my cheap JQ-L04 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I think this mani looked alright. I like the images, and I think I should use this stamping plate more often!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 703 White Hot Love, Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir, Yes Sir! & Stamping With Pueen 39 / Nail Art Challenge #26 Inspired By A Pattern

upload-1Hi there! I’ve got another nail post for you today. I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And today’s mani is my attempt at challenge #26 Inspired By A Pattern.

The pattern that inspired me to do this mani is the purple butterfly print on one of my scarves.

I’ve used said scarf as backdrop for a few product photos. If you’re interested, you can see the scarf here and here.

Whilst my mani isn’t a copy of the butterfly pattern, I’m happy with it. In addition, the nail challenge wasn’t about copying anything, but to be inspired by something. So I think I did alright! 🙂

For this mani I used the following products:
Rimmel 60 Seconds 703 White Hot Love (white base, 2 coats),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir, Yes Sir! (stamping colour),
Pueen‘s 39 stamping plate (from Pueen‘s Love Elements collection),
JQ-L04 stamping plate,
Flowers 02 stamping plate

How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch via the comments section. And thank you for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab, Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Kate, Barry M Masquerade & Stamping With JQ-L04

Rimmel Black Cab Andrea Fulerton Kate JQ-L02, Essence Stampy Polish White Barry M MasqueradeHi there! After a few recent nail fails I seem to have found my mani mojo again. 🙂 So today’s post is about a recent mani I really, really liked.

As usual, I didn’t know what to do with my nails. So I started with two base colours – Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Kate (pinky, index finger) and Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab (ring finger, middle finger, thumb).

I wanted to stamp. So I selected a few pretty images from my JQ-L04 stamping plate. And I stamped on the images with Essence’s Nail Art Stampy Polish in white.

But I also wanted some sparkle. And I opted for Barry M‘s Masquerade (gold, fuchsia and light blue glitter in a clear base).

I’m very pleased with how the mani turned out. It’s got a butterfly and floral images, glitter, purple and black & white. What’s not to love? 🙂 Please feel free to let me know what you think about this mani. And thank you for stopping by!
