Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D & Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post.

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D (2 coats). I love this beautiful raspberry shade, but the polish could have dried faster. A lot faster!

The cute glitter polish I used is Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered. I love this glitter polish. Unfortunately, this one dries super slowly too!

I like the look of the 2 polishes, but I didn’t do my “homework” properly. I was sloppy with the cleaning up around the cuticles, and I could have given a certain cuticle a gentle push back. Anyhoo… what colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment?

Nail Of The Day – China Glaze Pure Joy, Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 04

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

For this mani I painted my nails with China Glaze Pure Joy (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

Pure Joy is one of my favourite Christmas glitter polishes. It’s an oldie, but it’s definitely a goldie!

For the images I used MoYou London‘s cute Festive 04 stamping plate. The 2 polishes I stamped with are Manhattan Quick Dry 46K (red) and Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch (green).

Again – Merry Christmas, everyone! 🎅

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 81R & Stamping With MoYou London Illusion 09 (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani that didn’t turn out I had hoped. So this is a Nail Fail post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 81R. This light green polish was opaque in 2 coats. What a nice surprise!

I thought I’d use MoYou London‘s Illusion 09 plate and one of the new MoYou London stampers I bought just recently. The black polish I stamped with is a random polish (can’t remember).

I didn’t like this mani because the images looked completely off. I should have done a few practice stamps. Ah well! I guess I have to get used to that wobbly stamper. Or maybe I’ll stash it away (and never touch it again). I haven’t decided yet.

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan M&Buffalo 18, Claire’s Green Splatter & Stamping With MoYou London Tropical 14 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #4 Green Nails

Hi there! This is another mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan M&Buffalo 18 (2 coats). This is a lovely polish.

The glitter top coat I used on my pinkies and ring fingers is Claire’s Green Splatter. I think this top coat looks amazing! 😍

For the images on my thumbs, index and ring fingers I used MoYou London‘s Tropical 14 stamping plate and MoYou London‘s Little Pickle stamping polish.

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Quick Dry 46, Barry M Amethyst Glitter, Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Rebel 07

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhatten Quick Dry 46K (dark red base colour, 2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Primark PS… Marshmallow (white base, 2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

The pretty glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter. For the images I used MoYou London‘s Rebel 07 stamping plate and a random black polish.

The mani wasn’t what I had in mind. Whilst the red glitter nails looked great, the black and white nails weren’t my best work. The black polish I stamped with isn’t suitable for stamping, and the images ended up the wrong way around… Whoops!

Ah well, things like these happen sometimes. Onto the next mani! 🙂

Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Cream 56K

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing another matte lip product – Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Cream 56K. I’ve already reviewed one of these matte lip products, and you can read the review here. But let’s focus on this one!

Right… I don’t like this product at all. And here’s why: First of all, both the look and the feel of this product are dry af. Terrible! This lip cream feels wonderfully velvety when it’s applied, but once it’s dry, it really is dry! But there’s more…

The colour is something else! This shade is clearly not for me. Since I hate letting products go to waste, I am now mixing this mat lip cream with the other one (pale nude shade) AND with an overly creamy lipstick (the kind that doesn’t just bleed into the foundation but actually almost “slips off”). I know it sounds over the top but it actually works well, so I’m getting more than just some use out of a number of unloved products. 🙂

If you’re interested in matte lip products, Manhattan‘s Soft Mat Lip Creams (different shades) are available at the Poundstores for £1 each.
