Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 323 Don’t Be Shy & Stamping With Pueen 111

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 323 Don’t Be Shy (2 coats). I really like this polish. Great formula, great colour. Great stuff!

Then I decided to double-stamp. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s fantastic Make Your Day stamping plate collection).

I really like this mani. The base colour looks great, the images are super cute, and the gold and black stamping effect looks very nice.

Have you tried double-stamping? If not, why not? 😉 What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails / Nail Art Challenge #31 Recreate A Favourite – Galaxies

Hi there! Today’s post is about the galaxy mani I did the other day. For this super easy mani I painted my nails with Revlon 999 Blackest Black (2 coats).

Then I used small pieces of a make-up sponge to apply different colour polishes to my nails.

I used 4 different Essence Colour Boost nail colours: Instant Friendship (pale nude pink), Instant Feeling (dusty lavender), Instant Summer (yellow), and Instant Match (blue).

I liked how my nails looked at this point. However, I knew I wanted star dust too! So I applied 1 coat of the one and only Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

This mani is 1 of the 3 encores I’m doing for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. This would be challenge #31 Recreate A Favourite II.

How do you like this mani? I have to say that I love it. I can’t stop staring at my nails! 😀 Feel free to let me know if you like this mani. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Maybelline Forever Strong 795 Cloudy Grey & Stamping With Pueen 53 / Nail Art Challenge #16 Print

upload-4Hi there! Today I’ve got another nail post for you. 🙂

With today’s post I’m continuing “my” 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

However, today’s challenge is the first challenge that I have changed a little. I thought that changing it would be better than skipping it altogether!

The original challenge #16 would have been Tribal Print. However, I dislike tribal print manis just as much as I dislike polka dot manis, so I changed Tribal Print to Print.

And this means… the new challenge is #16 Print! Hey, what’s more print than newspaper print? 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Maybelline Forever Strong 795 Cloudy Grey (1 coat). And I could finally use my Pueen 53 plate (from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection)! The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

How do you like this mani? I think it’s alright. It’s not my favourite mani, but it certainly beats beige nail colours (yawn…) and the likes. 🙂 If you want to comment, please do so. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 085 & Stamping With Pueen 51

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is about a simple mani I did the other day.

I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 085. I like the cool pink shade and the easy to work with and quick-dry formula. However, this Astor polish is a scented polish – and the burned raspberry scent annoyed me quite a bit. Scented polish… who thought this up?

Anyway, let’s get to step 2! I wanted to see if Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go stamped well. So I gave it a try – and it worked out fine! Do you agree?

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the stamping plate… I chose Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) because it’s one of my favourite stamping plates. 🙂

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

Nail Of The Day – Blood Spatter Nails

Blood Spatter Hi there! Last week I told you that I’m trialling potential Halloween manis, so here’s candidate number two.

I painted my nails with the white polish from one of Revlon‘s double-ended Neon Nail Art polishes. This white is absolutely brilliant in terms of coverage. The formula is not that great, but we’re talking Halloween manis, so I’m not planning on sporting this look forever. 🙂

When the white polish was dry, I applied one coat of clear polish – to make the nail surface more even – and then I used a tooth pick and a red polish (this one’s from Manhattan’s Mode Pilot collection) to scatter and spread a few blobs and lines.

I think this mani is just as great as the ‘bats on monster slime’ mani from last week. What do you think?
