Nail Of The Day – China Glaze Pure Joy, Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 04

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

For this mani I painted my nails with China Glaze Pure Joy (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

Pure Joy is one of my favourite Christmas glitter polishes. It’s an oldie, but it’s definitely a goldie!

For the images I used MoYou London‘s cute Festive 04 stamping plate. The 2 polishes I stamped with are Manhattan Quick Dry 46K (red) and Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch (green).

Again – Merry Christmas, everyone! 🎅

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds Rapid Ruby, Revlon Top Speed 330 Emerald & Orly Hair Band

Hi there! I have another Nail Of The Day post for you today! 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Rapid Ruby (2 coats) and Revlon Top Speed 330 Emerald (2 coats). These two polishes are pretty much one-coaters. And the colours are perfect for all kinds of Christmas-themed manis!

The glitter top coat I used is the one and only Orly Hair Band. This top coat is insanely pretty and sparkly. I love how dense it is. And guess what, I only applied 1 coat. Orly did a truly amazing job with this top coat.

This is a mani I did before. It’s super easy to do and it always looks amazing.

Have you done any Christmas manis already? Please do let me know via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 444 Seduce & NYC In A Minute 276 Big City Dazzle

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 Salon Pro 444 Seduce (2 coats). I like this polish a lot. The colour is just wow!

The glitter top coat I used is NYC In A Minute 276 Big City Dazzle, which is an amazingly beautiful micro-glitter mix (red, blue, fuchsia, gold). The photo doesn’t do it justice at all.

I liked this mani a lot. It’s a simple mani, but the dark purple glitter combo looked cute and sparkly!

What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment?

Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 & Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 (2 coats). This is a gorgeous purple polish!

The glitter top coat is Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888 (1 coat). I like this silver holo top coat. It looks amazing in the sun! 😍

I liked this mani a lot. I wish my camera had been able to capture its purple holographic amazingness better.

I’m very happy with the quality of these polishes. It’s sad Miss Sporty products can no longer be found anywhere.

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Sarong Wrap, NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry, Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust & Stamping With Pueen 83

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

For this mani I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry (2 coats). The glitter top coat I used is Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust (1 coat).

I painted my pinkies and ring fingers with 2 coats of white polish and 2 coats of Models Own Sarong Wrap. The yellow Models Own polish is poorly pigmented, and that’s why I needed to start with a white base underneath.

I stamped with Pueen‘s 83 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani very much. I’ve done purple and yellow manis before, and I know I’ll be doing more purple and yellow manis in the not too distant future. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 120 Red Carpet, Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust & Water Decals / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #1 Red Nails

Hi there! Happy Monday! This week’s going to be NAIL WEEK, so I’ll be posting about manis only.

I’ve also decided to redo the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I’ve done it before (I’ve completed it in summer 2017), and I want to do it again – but on my own terms. I won’t be doing 31 manis in 31 Days, but over the next couple of months.

I might also skip a few individual challenges and replace them with something else, but I’ll try not to pick and choose too much. 🙂

Alright! For this mani, which is challenge #1 RED NAILS, I painted my nails (pinkies, ring fingers) with Revlon Colorstay 120 Red Carpet (2 coats).

I used water decals on my thumbs, index and middle fingers. I tore one of the decals, and another one ended up looking very wrinkly. So I decided to cover up the mistakes with glitter. I chose Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust.

I liked this mani, and I am looking forward to using decals more often. Just a few weeks ago I bought around 130 sheets of nail decals, so I better use them! 🙂

2 Orange Nails

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 312 Ultra Violet, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies, Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 889 & Stamping With Pueen 99

Hi there! This post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies (1 coat, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel Salon Pro 312 Ultra Violet (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I used Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 889 to add a touch of glitter to the purple nails.

For the images on the blue(ish) nails I used Pueen‘s 99 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The golden polish I stamped with is the sensational Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House & Barry M Jingle Bells

Hi there! This week’s going to be Nail Week. This means that I’ll be posting about manis only.

I’m starting with this mani which I did before Christmas but somehow forgot to post about. Oops!

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House (2 coats).

This is a gorgeous dark green with micro-shimmer. It’s particularly pretty because it’s not brush-strokey at all. Great stuff, Rimmel!

The glitter top coat I used is the wonderful Barry M Jingle Bells. It features gold glitter in various shapes and sizes, as well as red glitter in the shape of winter boots. How cute is this glitter top coat?! 😍

I liked this mani a lot, but I didn’t like any of the photos I took. It was a grey and cloudy day with little natural light, and this photo (taken indoors with plenty of artificial light) was the best of the countless ones I took. In a nutshell, my cuticles look great, but the actual mani doesn’t look very crisp. Ah well…
