Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 340 Cinna-Snap & Foils

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

I haven’t done a foil mani in quite some time, so I thought it’s definitely time for one!

So for this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 340 Cinna Snap (2 coats). This is supposed to be a quick-dry polish, but it took ages to dry. Terrible!

I used colourful foils for the accents, and I’m happy with how this mani turned out. Each nail looked truly unique!

If you’ve never done a foil mani but would like to know how to do one, I’ve done a tutorial which you can find here. Supplies are cheap, and it’s super easy to do!

Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500, Jess Nail Polish Oxygen, Water Decals & Stamping With Pueen 77 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #6 Violet Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani that I’m doing for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. This is challenge #6 VIOLET NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs). This is a gorgeous purple polish.

I used MoYou London‘s Orchid Chic stamping polish and Pueen‘s 77 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

For the ring fingers and pinkies I used floral water decals and 2 coats of Jess Oxygen. Jess nail polishes used to be exclusive to Poundland, but the brand disappeared.

I really liked this mani. Purple is one of my favourite (nail) colours, and the decals looked very nice with the holo glitter top coat.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry & Stamping With Pueen 72 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #5 Blue Nails

Hi there! I did another mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing again – on my own terms).

This mani is for challenge #5 BLUE NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry (2 coats). I love this polish. It’s perfect. I’ve been using it a lot lately!

I thought I’d do an easy floral mani, so I used one of my favourite stamping plates – Pueen‘s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I was pleased with how this mani turned out. I need to use this beautiful stamping plate more often!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan M&Buffalo 18, Claire’s Green Splatter & Stamping With MoYou London Tropical 14 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #4 Green Nails

Hi there! This is another mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan M&Buffalo 18 (2 coats). This is a lovely polish.

The glitter top coat I used on my pinkies and ring fingers is Claire’s Green Splatter. I think this top coat looks amazing! 😍

For the images on my thumbs, index and ring fingers I used MoYou London‘s Tropical 14 stamping plate and MoYou London‘s Little Pickle stamping polish.

Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou London, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Rapid Ruby, Revlon Top Speed 330 Emerald, PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Stamping With MoYou Festive 04 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag

Hi there! Since it’s Nail Week, I have another Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with…
Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats, pinkies),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Rapid Ruby (2 coats, ring and middle fingers) and
Revlon Top Speed 330 Emerald (2 coats, index fingers, thumbs).

I used MoYou London‘s Festive 04 plate and Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Rapid Ruby for the images on the pinkies.

So why this mani? Well, the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge has a challenge that’s called INSPIRED BY A FLAG. It’s challenge #28.

I chose the Belarusian flag 🇧🇾 because I’ve been supporting Belarus’ Fed Cup team for years. I’m a major tennis fan, and I hope Belarus wins the semifinal tie against Australia this weekend! Go Aryna, Saschka, Vera und Lida! 💪

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn, Sleek Nailed By Sleek Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida & Stamping / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #2 Orange Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about the second mani I did for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge – it’s challenge #2 ORANGE NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (3 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and with Sleek‘s Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida (2 coats over a white base, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I needed a white base because Sleek’s orange polish isn’t of great quality. It’s incredibly thin, and I doubt that even 4 coats would have been enough. I also found that this polish took ages to dry. Yikes! It’s obvious why Sleek discontinued this nail polish collection!

The stamping plate I used is the my trusted unbranded Flowers 02 plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani – especially the textured polish. I didn’t like textured polishes when they were the rage a few years ago, but I do like them now! 🙂
