Nail Of The Day – Revlon Matte Suede 863 Ruby Ribbon & Gold Foils

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Matte Suede 863 Ruby Ribbon (2 coats). This is one of my oldest unloved polishes. 😄 When I bought it, I had no idea what matte suede even meant in terms of nail polish.

When I used this polish for the first time, I was disappointed because it dried down to a matte and streaky mess. It was incredibly ugly.

Now back to today’s mani! I used gold foil to give the plain burgundy shade some sparkle. And 1 coat of clear polish added extra shine. I liked this mani – and I will do more foil manis over the next few weeks.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir & Gold Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir (2 coats). This is one of my favourite dark purple polishes. I just love everything about it!

Since gold and purple is one of my favourite colour combos, I used some leftover gold foil to beautify the mani. I think I did well! I really liked this mani!

If you’d like to try foils, I’ve done a pictorial which is very easy to follow, and there are a few tips and tricks. If you’re interested, you can have a look here.

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Nail Art Neon 140 Pink Glow & Gold Foil

Hi there! Since this week is Nail Week, I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Nail Art Neon 140 Pink Glow – 2 coats of the white polish and 3 coats of the coral polish.

Wait, what? 5 coats of polish? Yes! The white polish was very streaky, and the coral polish was super thin. Awful!

Once dry, the coral polish felt and looked strangely chalky. Yikes! So how could I save the mani? With gold foil – wedged between 2 coats of clear polish!

I did like the look of the mani, and I wore it for 4 days because of the time (drying time) and effort (8 coats of polish) I spent on it.

What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match & Rainbow Foils

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 11 Instant Match (1 coat). Essence’s Colour Boost polishes are one-coaters. I bought them (yes, all the colours) because I thought they’d make great stamping polishes, but I also use them when I don’t have the time to wait for multiple coats of polish to dry.

This time I also used rainbow foils to add a pop of colour to the blue nails.

The mani looked great in real life, and I wish I had been able to capture its beauty. But there’s just not enough daylight this time of year…

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Water Decals & Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (2 coats, middle and ring fingers, thumbs). I used some gold foil to add a touch of sparkle to the plain green nails.

Then I used floral water decals on my pinkies and ring fingers. I applied 1 coat of Essie As Gold As It Gets for a hint of sparkle. It’s hardly visible in the photo, but it looked nice in real life.

I liked the mani! It looks very busy in the photo, but it’s actually not – you have to try to ignore the colourful sticker on the nail polish lid.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 391 Celebrity Bash & Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 391 Celebrity Bash (2 easy coats).

I’m not the biggest fan of red nail polish, but this one is lovely – on its own and when used in nail art.

This time I opted for colourful nail foils. Whilst the photo isn’t the greatest, the mani looked very cute in real life.
