Nail Of The Day – Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink & Stamping (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago. I didn’t really like how the mani turned out, but I had to do a quick mani that day, so I just grabbed a polish and a couple of stamping plates…

So, for this mani I painted my nails with Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink (1 coat). I usually do 2 coats, but I thought that I could just about get away with 1 coat (+ 1 coat of clear polish). 🙂

I used 2 stamping plates – JQ-L02 and JQ-L19. A few years ago, I bought these cheap stamping plates via ebay. I haven’t used them much, but I’ve given them another try (or rather a second chance) just recently. And I realised that I actually like them!

So whilst I didn’t like this mani, I’m looking forward to using these stamping plates again!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Max Factor, Primark & Essence

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

Alrighty, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds Hot Black To Go (2 coats, but 1 would have been enough).

Then I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply white blobs (Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow) to my nails.

I repeated the process with 2 random colour polishes – Essence Colour & Go 06 Instant Happiness and Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink.

The glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova which is not just my favourite glitter top coat, but most likely also the most beautiful and the most versatile glitter top coat in the history of the planet.

I really liked this mani. It was inspited by boredom, but it turned out to be quite cool. Have you tried galaxy nails? If not, why not? Would you like to try galaxy nails? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 311 Spring Yellow, Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! Nail Week continues, so I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 311 Spring Yellow (2 coats). This isn’t the greatest yellow nail polish because it’s quite thin.

I know from experience that, with this polish, 4 coats aren’t enough for an opaque finish. So this time I thought I’d do some easy nail art.

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply random blobs of colour polish. I used Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink and Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid.

Then I used Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and a home-made black “stamping” polish for the images.

I really liked this mani. It was happy and cololurful and definitely something else! Do you like yellow nail polish? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Pueen 51

Hi there! Let me show you a mani I did not too long ago!

For this mani I painted my nails with Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink (2 coats). This is a lovely polish. Great colour, quick-dry and easy to work with formula, lovely glossy finish… truly great stuff. Thank you, Max Factor!

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply a few blobs of purple polish (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid).

For the images I used Pueen‘s 51 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and a black “stamping” polish I made from black polish and black eyeshadow. 🙂

I liked this mani. It didn’t look perfect, but I really liked the bright and optimistic look of it. What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!
