Nail Of The Day – Revlon Brilliant Strength 190 Entice & Stamping With Pueen 74

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Brilliant Strength 190 Entice (2 easy coats). I love this polish. It’s almost a one-coater (which is very unusual for such a light colour), and I love the amazing self-levelling formula.

For the images I used my Pueen 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection). This is one of my favourite stamping plates. I use it quite often!

The 2 polishes I stamped with are the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 81R & Stamping With MoYou London Illusion 09 (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani that didn’t turn out I had hoped. So this is a Nail Fail post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 81R. This light green polish was opaque in 2 coats. What a nice surprise!

I thought I’d use MoYou London‘s Illusion 09 plate and one of the new MoYou London stampers I bought just recently. The black polish I stamped with is a random polish (can’t remember).

I didn’t like this mani because the images looked completely off. I should have done a few practice stamps. Ah well! I guess I have to get used to that wobbly stamper. Or maybe I’ll stash it away (and never touch it again). I haven’t decided yet.

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Stamping With Pueen 51

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

For this mani (which I did ages ago) I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats). I love this polish. NYC did a great job with it – with the entire line actually. It’s sad the brand has disappeared.

For the images I used my much loved Pueen 51 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Whilst this isn’t the most spectacular mani, I liked it a lot. It’s definitely one of the better filler manis I’ve done over the past couple of months.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 803 Man Overboard & Foils / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #9 Rainbow Nails

Hi there! This is another mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing again – on my own terms). This is for challenge #9 RAINBOW NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 803 Man Overboard (2 coats). This is a decent grey polish. In the bottle it looks like a medium grey, but it’s actually more of a medium to dark grey. This isn’t terrible, but I was trying to go for a “grey sky” look which would have looked better with a lighter shade of grey. Ah well…

For the rainbow effects I used colourful foils. If you’d like to try foil nails the easy way, check out this easy to follow tutorial.

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Heirloom & Stamping With Pueen 100 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #8 Metallic Nails

Hi there! This is another Nail Of The Day post. And it’s another mani I did for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. It’s #8 METALLIC NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Heirloom (3 coats). This polish took ages to dry, and it chipped quickly. Terrible quality!

I decided to stamp, and I used Pueen‘s 100 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate set) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

This mani looked amazing in real life, but it was impossible to capture it. I’m not proud of this photo for a number of reasons, but it was actually the best of the bunch I took!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With Biutee 10 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #7 Black & White Nails

Hi there! This week is going to be NAIL WEEK. This means that I’ll be posting about nail stuff only. 😎

I did another mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing on my own terms – not in 31 days and not in chronological order). This mani is for challenge #7 BLACK & WHITE NAILS.

And for this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is a fantastic polish. I love it!

For the images I used my relatively new Biutee 10 stamping plate and Essence‘s amazing black stamping polish. Too bad that Essence discontinued their stamping polishes. 🙁

I liked this mani a lot. I know I’ll be using this stamping plate a lot in the not too distant future!
