Nail Of The Day – Models Own Goose, Sinful Colors Blue La La & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-720

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Models Own Goose (3 coats, pinkies, ring fingers). This is one of the polishes from Models Own’s super cute Speckled Eggs collection.

I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with the beautiful Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats).

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

The stamping plate I used is Bundle Monster‘s BM-720 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster‘s Secret Garden collection – which I bought a few weeks ago).

I really liked this mani. The Models Own polish is super cute, Sinful Colors Blue La La is a sensationally beautiful shade of blue, and I love this Bundle Monster stamping plate! What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, Andrea Fulerton Art Attack & Rock Star Glitter

Funky Town Glitter NYC A Perfect Day Andrea FulertonHi there! I’ve done a lot of stamping recently, so I thought it’s time to do a glitter mani again.

I chose NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (grey) and the blue polish from Andrea Fulerton’s Nail Boutique Art Attack Trio as my base colours.

The NYC polish is fantastic in every way – but the Andrea Fulerton polish annoyed me a bit. It took ages to dry – well over 45 minutes per coat. Fortunately I was watching a movie, so my hands weren’t busy.

The glitter is one of my favourite glitter mixes – it’s called Funky Town and I think it’s the ultimate rock star glitter mix.

I’ve done a mani – quite similar to this one – with the same glitter mix before. If you’d like to compare the manis and tell me which one you like better, you can find the other mani here.

I really like both manis, but I think this one looks fresher. I don’t know why, but my husband thinks it’s because the glitter looks so alive on the grey polish. Well, who am I to argue? 🙂

Feel free to let me know which mani you like better – the one from last year or this one. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Nails Inc. Baker Stret & Claire’s All Sorts

022016 Nails Inc Baker Street and Claire's All SortsHi there! Since I’ve done two nail posts since Monday, I decided this week would be nail week. 🙂 And I hope you’re enjoying nail week as much as I do!

So for this mani I dug out one of the more interesting glitter toppers I have. But let’s start from the beginning.

At first I painted my nails with Nails Inc.’s Baker Street (2 coats), a beautiful medium blue that really pops.

Then I painted on one coat of glitter topper. This one’s called All Sorts and it’s from Claire’s Accessories. This glitter topper features lime green, yellow and pink glitter in different shapes and sizes. Btw, I love the yellow squares the most!

I think this mani came out wonderful. The colours pop and it looks fun. If I were a rock star, this is the kind of mani I’d wear all the time! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies & Glitter

Rimmel Stormy Skies GlitterHi there! So, after two attempts (Blood Spatter Nails and Bats on a monster slime green background) I’ve already run out of nail ideas for Halloween. So I thought I’d do a happy mani.

I used Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies as my base colour and added lots of colourful matte glitter hexes (white, fuchsia, lime green) for a good mood effect.

I really like Stormy Skies. The colour is a creamy greyish blue / blueish grey and I think it’s a great autumn and winter shade. I also had to apply one coat only, so this polish is just perfect!

The matte glitter looks quite cute, I think. However, I think it would have looked better on an orange or a light yellow background. Well, there’s always a next time.

What do you think? 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Boots 17 Lasting Fix Indigo & Glitter Mix

062015 Boots 17 Indigo PLUS glitter mixHi there! Here’s another quick NOTD post. I haven’t taken pics of my nails in ages because I haven’t done any spectacular manis lately. I also broke a nail (middle finger – again!), so I’m only showing you my ring finger and my pinkie this time.

I’m currently wearing Boots 17 Lasting Fix Indigo and a few sprinkles of a loose glitter mix which I bought online. I really like this mani – it’s happy and cheerful and the colourful glitter looks great on the purple polish.

What do you think of glitter manis? Feel free to comment. And thanks for checking out my blog!

Nail Of The Day – Orly Terracotta & Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat 600 Fuzzy Fantasy

Hi there! I thought after all the face, eye and body products it’s time for a nail post. Yes, I’m a nail nut, too. I know the photo is huge – sorry about that – but I wanted to show off the Fuzzy Coat. 😀 Sooo… today I’m wearing Orly Terracotta (two coats) and Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy (one coat).
Orly Terracotta PLUS Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy
Orly Terracotta is a bright pinkish red; Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy is a clear polish packed with matte green and white glitter strands. At first I wasn’t sure how this combination would turn out, but once the Fuzzy Coat was applied, I thought it looked cute. Mr Strawberryblonde certainly agrees. 🙂
