Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & China Glaze Fang-Tastic (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Heere’s another Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats).

Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of minty nail colours, I like this one. 🙂

When I did this mani I didn’t want to stamp again, so I decided to use a glitter topper. I opted for China Glaze Fang-Tastic because it looked incredibly pretty in the bottle. However, the mani looked quite odd with the creamy, minty base and the shimmering glitter topper.

I’m sure Fang-Tastic will look amazing over dark base colours, but this mani was another Nail Fail!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 004 Deliciously Violet & L’Oréal Color Riche Top Coat Tweed 917 Jackie Tweed (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani that I did a few months ago. I thought the mani would look awesome – but it didn’t. So I only for it for a day.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 004 Deliciously Violet (2 coats). I’d describe the shade as a violet-tinted grey. It’s not my favourite colour, but I bet it’s a great base colour for stamping.

Actually, I wanted to stamp (I should have done that!), but I also wanted to try L’Oréal’s Color Riche Top Coat Tweed 917 Jackie Tweed. I went for the fuzzy top coat – and it was the wrong choice.

Nail fails happen. Onto the next mani! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – MUA Bright Coral & Barry M Amethyst Glitter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with MUA Bright Coral (2 coats). I like this polish because it’s not a coral shade, but more of a raspberry shade. Pretty!

MUA’s nail polish line has been discontinued which is too bad because some of their polishes are pretty great! I’m glad I stocked up when they were 50p each (clearance).

Anyhoo… I didn’t want to stamp, so I used Barry M‘s Amethyst Glitter to add some sparkle to my nails.

This is another mani that (thanks to the cute glitter top coat) looked really nice in real life. However, it was impossible to capture the beauty of the glitter properly.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven & Essence Glamaxy Far Far Away

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (2 easy coats).

I love these milky purple shades. Of all the nail colours (and finishes) out there, “milky purple” is my favourite nail colour.

I also used one one of my favourite top coats, Essence Glamaxy Far Far Away (1 coat). This is a gorgeous rainbow flakie top coat. It doesn’t photograph well, but you can catch a glimpse of its incredible colour-shifting beauty in this photo.

I really liked this mani. It was a simple mani, it was super easy to do, but it was very eye-catching!

Nail Of The Day – Fearne Lola Lavender & Models Own Jack Frost

Hi there! Today’s post is not just a Nail Of The Day post.

It’s also the last post for this week which means that Nail Week has come to an end.

Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Fearne Lola Lavender (2 coats).

I think this is a great quality polish. It’s almost a one-coater, and it dries quickly.

The top coat I used is Models Own Jack Frost (1 coat). I found this beautiful holographic glitter polish at one of the Poundstores – what a bargain!

It was impossible to capture this holographic beauty in a single photo – but in real life this top coat looks stunning.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Essie Rock At The Top

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats).

I don’t love mint green nail colours, but I’ve learned how to make them work for me – with the help of nail stamping equipment and glitter toppers. 🙂

And this time I reached for a glitter topper. 1 coat of Essie’s Rock At The Top (which I picked up for £2!) was all it took to make this mani look glamorous.

I liked this mani. It wasn’t the most creative mani, but I liked the fresh and summery look of it.

Nail Of The Day – Sinful Colors Blue Lala, Bourjois Techno Bar A Tokyo & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! Let me show you another mani I did not too long ago!

For this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats). I really love this polish. The formula is great, the polish dries quickly, and the colour is stunning!

I wanted a sparkly mani, so I top-coated my nails with Bourjois Techno Bar A Tokyo 44 (1 coat). This top coat is a pale (almost transparent) light blue polish packed with iridescent hex glitter. 🙂

And then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and a home-made black polish.

I didn’t love this mani, but I think it looked alright. Do you like blue nails? What colour are your nails right now? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
