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 – Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D & Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered

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

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D (2 coats). I love this beautiful raspberry shade, but the polish could have dried faster. A lot faster!

The cute glitter polish I used is Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered. I love this glitter polish. Unfortunately, this one dries super slowly too!

I like the look of the 2 polishes, but I didn’t do my “homework” properly. I was sloppy with the cleaning up around the cuticles, and I could have given a certain cuticle a gentle push back. Anyhoo… what colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment?

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine & Stamping

Hi there! This is another Nail Of The Day post… 😊

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (2 coats). This polish is amazing. It’s almost a one-coater, and the colour is gorgeous.

I used 2 stamping plates – Nicole Diary 062 (ring and index fingers) and Beauty Big Bang 15 (pinkies, middle fingers, thumbs).

The pretty gold polish I stamped with is Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize.

I liked this mani a lot because it had purple, gold and stars. What’s not to like?

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey & Barry M Amethyst Glitter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey (2 coats). I wonder why they chose this name for this brown (!) polish…

I wanted to stamp, but I thought the base colour was a bit too dark. So I decided to use a glitter top coat. I chose Barry M Amethyst Glitter – a super cute rainbow glitter top coat!

I didn’t know where I was headed when I started to paint my nails. Because of this I’m very happy that the mani turned out the way it did. I liked it a lot! It wasn’t special, but I think it looked cute.

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 – Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Personal Best & Stamping With UR Sugar UR-L011

Hi there! This week’s going to be Nail Week, and this is the first mani post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Personal Best (2 easy coats).

I love this polish! It dries in no time, and the colour also just happens to be my favourite nail colour – I call it milky purple.

The stamping plate I used is my new UR Sugar UR-L011 stamping plate. How gorgeous are those images?!

Then I double-stamped! The 2 polishes I stamped with are Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).
