Nail Of The Day – B. Complete 163 Rainy Day, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 60 Straw-Ready & Stamping With JQ-L18

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Superdrug’s B. Complete 163 Rainy Day (2 coats). I like this khaki shade. It’s a great base for stamping!

Then I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 60 Straw-Ready. I overdid it with the pink polish, but it didn’t look too bad.

I went ahead with my original plan – stamping! I used my JQ-L18 plate. This is a cheap plate I picked up as part of a cheap bundle.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto. And that was already it. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Waikiki & Stamping With JQ-L18

Hi there! After yesterday’s hair care post I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Waikiki (2 coats).

This is a matte polish. Since I’m not a big fan of matte nail colours, I applied 1 coat of clear polish to make the mani glossy and shiny. Much better! 🙂

I decided to stamp… and I used my JQ-L18 stamping plate. I opted for a few different images, and I liked how the mani turned out.

The black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Do you like green nails? Do you prefer matte or glossy nail colours? Do you stamp? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nail Art Ideas / NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is the 6th and last Halloween Nail Art Ideas post for this year.

If you’re still unsure what to do with your nails this Halloween, how about something like this? 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (2 coats). The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds Hot Black To Go.

I used a number of different stamping plates:
Bundle Monster BM-224, JQ-L18, and a few unbranded stamping plates.

I also tried to double-stamp with gold polish, but I picked the wrong polish. The golden hues are hardly visible – unless you look for them.

Anyway, I still like this mani. I think it looks great with the grey base, the barren tree, the spooky mansion and the bats. Do you agree? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nails Featuring NYC, Revlon, Sally Hansen, Essence & Bundle Monster / Nail Art Challenge #2 Orange Nails

upload-2Hi there! Today’s nail of the day post is another Halloween-themed mani. And it’s also my attempt at #2 Orange nails for the Nail Art Challenge. I think this mani is really spooky – do you agree?

I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 001 Evil (pinky and index fingers, two coats) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 844 On The Mango (ring and middle fingers, thumbs, two coats).

I chose images from 5 different stamping plates: No-name plates M94 (Konad dupe) and A13 (bats), No-name plate JQ-L18 (tree), Bundle Monster BM-224 (spooky mansion) and Bundle Monster BM-222 (pumpkin).

The two polishes I used to stamp on the image were my white Essence Stampy Polish and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black).

I do like this mani. I could have paid more attention when I did the middle and index fingers, but I think the pinky and the ring finger look great. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for reading!

Just in case you missed my last Halloween nail idea – cat nails – you can find the post here. And don’t forget to check out my monster slime & bats and my blood spatter manis. 🙂
