Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Foils

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a few months ago.

I’ve wanted to do a foil tutorial for ages, and I wanted to use this photo for said tutorial, but I haven’t had the time to put everything together. But I hope to do a proper tutorial next month!

Alright, back to this mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats). I like this black polish!

And whilst this polish looked nice on its own, I wanted more than plain black nails. So I used blue and fuchsia foils to add some colour to my nails. Job done!

I was very happy with how this mani turned out. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Sugar Plum & Stamping With Pueen 74

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

For this mani I painted my nails with 1 coat of Ciaté’s Sugar Plum. And then I sponged on another coat of polish.

Why? Well, the bottle is almost empty, and it was next to impossible to get any polish out of the bottle.

There’s still a little polish left in the bottle, but it won’t be enough for a full mani. It might be enough for 2 accent nails – we’ll see… 🙂

Now back to this mani! The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate (you’ve seen it before, and it’s part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

And the black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.

I’m really happy with this mani. What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it. 🙂

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. 🙂

Oh, and let me show you what I found just this week…

I found a few TBS products which I used to love. I’m sure some of you remember The Body Shop Neroli Jasmin and the original Vanilla products… I already had a sniff and all these products seem to be perfectly fine. I was sceptical because the body spray seems to have changed colour, but it smells the way it should smell. In case you’re wondering… I found these products in my stash – where else? I also think I might have more. 🙂

This is it for this week. Thanks for reading. And enjoy the rest of the weekend! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Underwater Nails Feat. Rimmel, Pueen, Revlon, Filthy Gorgeous & Essence

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently.

We had a few colleagues from France over at our office. I managed to dress properly (navy-blue suit, red and white striped top), but I couldn’t bring myself to wear plain red nails (yawn).

Since I was already dressed like a sailor, I thought I might as well just do a marine mani using the French national colours. And that’s exactly what I did! 🙂

And I used these products:
red base colour – Revlon 335 Mon Cherry,
blue base colour – Rimmel 231 Blue Eyed Girl,
white base colour – Rimmel 703 White Hot Love,

white stamping colour – Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish White,
blue stamping colour – Filthy Gorgeous Midnight,
red stamping colour – Revlon 335 Mon Cherry.

I chose images from three different stamping plates – Pueen 89 (shells), Pueen 91 (fish and corals), and Pueen 96 (anchors). These three stamping plates are part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection!

I realise this mani looks quite busy – but I really love it! I also got quite a few compliments which was very nice! How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry & MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. 🙂

I’m starting the new week with a mani post. I really like how this mani turned out, so let me tell you how I did it.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry. This polish is almost a one-coater. Great quality!

I wanted a cute mani, so I grabbed one of my favourite cute stamping plates, MoYou London Doodles 07, and I went to work! 🙂

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Stamping With Pueen 44 / Nail Art Challenge #25 Inspired By Fashion

Hi there! Today’s mani is another 31 Days Nail Art Challenge entry!

This mani is my attempt at challenge #25 – Inspired By Fashion. And the fashion item that inspired this mani is a scarf of mine.

I’ve used said scarf as backdrop for a few product photos. If you’re interested, you can see the scarf here.

Now onto the mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection).

And I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp on the stars. 🙂

Whilst this mani turned out a little messy, I still liked it. What do you think? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for stopping by!
