Nail Of The Day

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did last month. For this mani I painted my nails with my home-made white polish.

Well, some time ago I poured all my near-empty white polishes into an empty Rimmel polish bottle – the result was an almost full bottle of white nail polish. 🙂

I opted for a white base because I wanted to finish a near-empty colour polish. And stamping is simply the easiest way to get those hard to reach last drops of polish out of the bottle.

The colour polish I stamped with is Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47. The stamping plate I chose is Pueen‘s 77 plate (part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

The coral polish was paler than expected, so I double-stamped. This seemed to mess up the images, but I was OK with that because I managed to empty the Bourjois polish! Success!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue & Essence Mountain Calling Snow Effect Top Coat

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did not too long ago.

I thought that a simple winter mani would be nice. So I opted for snowflakes on a blue background.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue (2 easy coats).

And I used Essence’s Mountain Calling Snow Effect top coat to add snowflakes to an otherwise unspectacular mani.

I really liked this mani because it looked cute. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow, China Glaze Red Satin, Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green & Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (pinkies), China Glaze Red Satin (ring and middle fingers), and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (index fingers and thumbs).

The glitter topper I used on my pinkies is Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter.

I really like this mani! But I’ve realised that I need a better red glitter topper!

Why did I do this mani? Well, I’m a total tennis nut. And Belarus has been my favourite Fed Cup team for quite some time now.

Why is that? Well, over the past 2 years the Belarusian fed cup players have shown that they’re true champions. The players have given their all, and they’ve played well above their respective rankings to despatch higher ranked players on a number of occasions. How could anyone not root for them?! Well, I certainly hope they win their tie this weekend!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-S161, BM-S162 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge K – Kitties

Hi there! I’ve got a nail of the day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is one of the best white nail polishes I’ve ever had. Well done, Primark!

Since I wanted to do a cat mani, I used Bundle Monster’s BM-S161 and BM-S162 stamping plates (which are part of Bundle Monster’s Fuzzy & Ferocious collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

The mani looked a little messy – and I think the stamping plates are to blame. I’ve used these two plates before and I had the same problem. But in real life no one noticed. 😉

This mani goes in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file in under K – Kitties. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Top Speed 220 Bubble & Ciaté Confetti

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did a little while ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 220 Bubble (2 coats). I love this colour. It’s full of live. It’s gorgeous.

In order to complete the ‘Barbie’ manicure I applied 1 coat of Ciaté’s Confetti. This top coat is packed with small silver holo glitter. It looked mesmerising in real life.

I wish I had managed to capture the amazingness of the silver holo glitter…

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 07 Instant Feeling & Stamping With Pueen 76

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 07 Instant Feeling. I love this colour!

I used Pueen’s 76 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms to stamp delicate images onto my nails.

I really liked how this mani turned out! The golden images look great on the vintage rose coloured background. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!
