Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Revlon & More

Hi there! A few weeks ago I did a galaxy mani. It wasn’t my favourite galaxy mani, but I have to say that I still liked how it turned out.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply blobs of Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White to my nails.

I used a few colour polishes (and more small make-up sponge pieces) for the accents: Collection 2000 Hot Looks 30 Sherbet Lemons (yellow), Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon (pale turquoise), and NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (pink).

The beautiful glitter top coat is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova – which happens to be my all-time favourite glitter top coat!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet & China Glaze Black Mesh

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet (2 coats). I’m not a big fan of the colour orange, but this is, without doubt, my favourite orange polish because it’s a great base colour for stamping (evidence here and here).

However, this time I didn’t stamp. I found a few special effect top coats in my stash, like this one – China Glaze Black Mesh.

A few years ago this kind of crackle or shatter top coat was the rage. I didn’t care for these top coats, but when they hit the Poundstores, I picked up a few colours to play with.

Needless to say, I didn’t do too many manis using these special effect top coats… However, I want to make an effort to use unloved products too. And that’s why I ended up with this mani. I think this mani looked kind of cool. Ugly but cool. Cool in its own little ugly way. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Maybelline Forever Strong 605 Hyper Jade & Pop Rocks Groupie

Hi there! Today’s post is the last post for this week. And, of course, it’s another Christmas Nail Ideas post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Maybelline Forever Strong 605 Hyper Jade (2 coats). This polish is almost a one-coater. Nice!

The top coat I used is called Pop Rocks Groupie. It’s a sheer green jelly topper that’s packed with silver holo glitter. I had to apply 2 coats, but I didn’t mind because the mani turned out to look amazing. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine, PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Essence Come To Town Lametta Topper

Hi there! I’ve got another Christmas Nail Ideas post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (green), PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (white), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (gold). The glitter top coat I used on my middle fingers is Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper.

I like this mani because it was easy to do, and because it doesn’t look like any of those standard Christmas manis that everyone (and that includes me) does this time of year.

What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s nail post is about my interpretation of a blue and silver winter mani.

For this look I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 180 Indigo Night (2 coats).

I used my unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate and 2 regular polishes (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 280 Pure Silver and Orly Snow Cone) to stamp wintry images onto my nails.

I really love this mani! Blue and silver look great together, and the double-stamped images look amazing!

How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
