Nail Of The Day – Bourjois Anti-Choc No Chips 17, Astor Lacque Deluxe 875 Electric Blue & Water Decals / A-Z Nail Art Challenge V – Vibrant Nails

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did recently.

For this mani I painted my nails with Bourjois Anti Choc / No Chips 17 and Astor Lacque Deluxe 875 Electric Blue.

And I used colourful water decals to add that je ne sais quoi to an otherwise fairly standard mani.

Since the water decals are quite eye-catching, this mani is going in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file it under V – Vibrant Nails.

I think this mani looks really cool! What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Color Club Blossoming & Nail Decals

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did not too long ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs) with Color Club Blossoming. I love this polish – the colour is great, and the formula is lovely and easy to work with. Awesome stuff!

I used water decals on my ring and middle fingers. The decals are on the sheerer side, so my natural nails are visible from underneath the decals. Next time I’ll make sure to paint all my nails.

All in all I’m actually really happy with the mani. I also like the ‘fresh’ look of it. What do you think? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 04 Instant Love & Essence Glamaxy Top Coat 34 Glamaxy Far, Far Away / A-Z Nail Art Challenge X – X-Plain To Me Why You’re Doing Red Nails Again

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This means that Nail Week comes to an end as well.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 04 Instant Love.

This polish is a true one-coater. Great quality! Essence was stupid to discontinue the entire Colour Boost collection.

The top coat I used is the one and only Essence Glamaxy 34 Glamaxy Far, Far Away.

This is the most beautiful flakie topper. No matter which base colour you choose, this flakie topper will always look good. Too bad that Essence discontinued this gem as well.

I’ve done this mani for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge which I’m doing on my own terms. This mani is for the X-Plain To Me Why You’re Doing Red Nails Again challenge.

Now let me explain why I’m doing red nails again… the reason is that I have too many red nail polishes. I think red is one of the most boring nail colours, and that’s why I tend to neglect the red polishes in my stash. So this challenge provided the perfect opportunity to do red nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Essence & MoYou London Doodles 07 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge U – Underwater

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This mani is my Underwater mani.

I started by painting my nails with Essence Out Of Space Stories 06 We Will Spock You. This isn’t the greatest silver holo polish, but it does the job.

I used MoYou London’s Doodles 07 plate and Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (the dark blue polish I stamped with) to complete this mani.

I’m happy with this mani. I know I did a very similar mani not too long ago – but I just love holo + cuteness + all things marine. 🙂

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

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Waikiki & Stamping With Pueen 51 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge E – Exotic

Hi there! Today’s mani is my attempt at Exotic Nails which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Waikiki. I like this polish. Great formula, awesome colour!

I used Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

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

I think this mani is quite pretty. The colour really pops, and I love the images. This stamping plate is one of my favourites, and I’m always happy to use it!

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

Nail Of The Day – Feat. Revlon, Ciaté, MUA & Manhattan / A-Z Nail Art Challenge G-Galaxies

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about the Galaxies mani that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria.

And then I used small pieces of a retired make-up sponge to apply a number of different nail polishes.

I used these colours: MUA White Wash (white), Revlon Colorstay 040 Provence (pale lavender) & Manhattan Buffalo 18 (milky lilac).

And then I just applied one coat of Ciaté Confetti, which is a beautiful silver holo glitter topper.

I think this mani turned out great. I love it! What do you think? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Blue Gradient Nails Feat. Ciaté, Rimmel & NYC / A-Z Nail Art Challenge B-Blue

Hi there! It’s Nail Week and, obviously, I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

I did a pink-to-red gradient mani a couple of months ago, so I thought I might as well try a blue gradient mani. 🙂

I used the following nail products:
Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 704 Sweet As Sugar (pinkies),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (ring fingers),
NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue (middle fingers),
Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (index fingers and thumbs),
Ciaté Party Shoes (glitter topper).

I really liked the mani. The colours I chose weren’t perfect, but I was still happy with this mani. Do you agree? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
