Nail Of The Day – Revlon 902 Craving Coral & Stamping With Pueen 73

Hi there! I think it’s time for another Nail Of The Day post. So here it is!

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 902 Craving Coral. I don’t love the colour, but I bought the polish (years ago), so I have to use it every now and then. And that’s what I’m doing! 🙂

I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp a remotely floral (?) image onto my nails. Said image is featured on Pueen’s 73 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

I didn’t love this mani. The images are far from perfect. This was 100% my fault because I was in a hurry. But in real life the mani didn’t look too bad. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Foils

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

I’ve wanted to do a foil tutorial for ages, and I wanted to use this photo for said tutorial, but I haven’t had the time to put everything together. But I hope to do a proper tutorial next month!

Alright, back to this mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats). I like this black polish!

And whilst this polish looked nice on its own, I wanted more than plain black nails. So I used blue and fuchsia foils to add some colour to my nails. Job done!

I was very happy with how this mani turned out. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Sugar Plum & Stamping With Pueen 74

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

For this mani I painted my nails with 1 coat of Ciaté’s Sugar Plum. And then I sponged on another coat of polish.

Why? Well, the bottle is almost empty, and it was next to impossible to get any polish out of the bottle.

There’s still a little polish left in the bottle, but it won’t be enough for a full mani. It might be enough for 2 accent nails – we’ll see… 🙂

Now back to this mani! The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate (you’ve seen it before, and it’s part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

And the black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.

I’m really happy with this mani. What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Sinful Colors Blue La La & Stamping With Pueen 93

Hi there! Today’s post is a short Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colours Blue La La. I really like this shade of blue. It’s cute and cool!

The stamping plate I chose is Pueen’s 93 plate (which is available as part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

And the blue polish I stamped with is Filthy Gorgeous Midnight. It’s not a “real” stamping polish,  but it stamps perfectly.

I think this mani turned out OK. It’s not my favourite, but I couldn’t come up with a more creative mani. I also didn’t want to do another underwater mani just yet. Ah well, maybe next time. 🙂

Anyway, feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Nail Art Challenge #9 Rainbow Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. It’s also another mani that counts toward the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And this rather chaotic mani is my attempt at challenge #9 Rainbow Nails.

Before I tell you which products I used, let me tell you how I ended up with this mani… one of my friend’s daughters celebrated her 11th birthday over the Easter weekend. I’m not good at baking or decorating, so I offered my friend to give her daughter a manicure.

I had lots of different nail colours and glitter toppers with me when I came to my friend’s house on Good Friday, so it wasn’t surprising that the young lady couldn’t decide which nail colour she liked best.

I suggested to paint her nails in different colours – and she agreed! The young lady opted for (more or less) pastel shades – light blue, orange, lilac, yellow and light green. And she chose a super cute glitter topper to complete the look.

When I got home I painted my nails in the same colours:
MakeUp Revolution True Blue (pinky),
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 844 On The Mango (ring finger),
NYC Expert Last 255 Late Night Lilac (middle finger),
P2 240 Joyful (index finger),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 816 Green-Eyed Monster (thumb),
Jess Rainbow (glitter topper).
The only difference was that I used a peel-off base coat (for easy removal) on my friend’s daughter’s nails, whilst I used a regular base coat on my own nails. 🙂
