Nail Of The Day – Nail Art Challenge #9 Rainbow Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. It’s also another mani that counts toward the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And this rather chaotic mani is my attempt at challenge #9 Rainbow Nails.

Before I tell you which products I used, let me tell you how I ended up with this mani… one of my friend’s daughters celebrated her 11th birthday over the Easter weekend. I’m not good at baking or decorating, so I offered my friend to give her daughter a manicure.

I had lots of different nail colours and glitter toppers with me when I came to my friend’s house on Good Friday, so it wasn’t surprising that the young lady couldn’t decide which nail colour she liked best.

I suggested to paint her nails in different colours – and she agreed! The young lady opted for (more or less) pastel shades – light blue, orange, lilac, yellow and light green. And she chose a super cute glitter topper to complete the look.

When I got home I painted my nails in the same colours:
MakeUp Revolution True Blue (pinky),
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 844 On The Mango (ring finger),
NYC Expert Last 255 Late Night Lilac (middle finger),
P2 240 Joyful (index finger),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 816 Green-Eyed Monster (thumb),
Jess Rainbow (glitter topper).
The only difference was that I used a peel-off base coat (for easy removal) on my friend’s daughter’s nails, whilst I used a regular base coat on my own nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, MakeUp Revolution True Blue, Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888 Glitter & Stamping With QA89

NYC A Perfect Day MUR True Blue Miss Sporty Glitter and StampingHi there! A couple of weeks ago I did a blue and grey themed mani. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted. But I thought I should still share it.

I painted my nails with MakeUp Revolution True Blue (pinky, index finger, thumb) and NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (ring finger, middle finger).

I added some glitter – namely Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch Top Coat 888 Glitter – to my ring finger. And then I started stamping. 🙂

I chose my QA89 stamping plate – which is one of the many plates I haven’t used before (that’s because the images are too small for my nails when my nails are longer).

And I stamped on different images using Essence’s amazing White Stampy Polish.

Looking closely, the mani wasn’t perfect because the crown and flower images didn’t turn out the way I wanted them to. But I have to admit that, from a distance, the mani actually looked quite nice.

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
