Nail Of The Day – Nail Art Challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And this mani is for challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag.

This challenge is (well, was) one of the few that I thought I might have to skip. However, I remembered that Canada Day is just around the corner. And I also have quite a few Canadian blogging buddies, so I thought I could do Canada nails. 😉

I didn’t have any stamping plates with large maple leaf images, and I couldn’t draw a maple leaf if my life depended on it. So I opted for a stamping image that featured small maple leaves.

Which products did I use? I chose Boots No 7 Devil’s Delight as my red base colour. The white nail polish I used for the accent nail is MUA White Wash. The red stamping colour is Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Red Ruby, and the stamping plate is an unbranded one that’s just called CF-17.

I really like how this mani turned out! One of the maple leaves didn’t stamp perfectly, but all in all I’m happy with this mani.

How do you like this mani? And if you’re Canadian – will you try a Canada Day mani? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. 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!

Hi there! I’ve got another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂 For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Out Of Space Stories 01 Outta Space Is The Place (two easy coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 80 plate (which is available as part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). And the polish I used to stamp on the flowers is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

This mani also counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge – and it’s for challenge #14 Flowers.

I think this mani turned out alright. I think the images go well with the pearlescent base. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

I’m starting the new week with a mani post. I really like how this mani turned out, so let me tell you how I did it.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry. This polish is almost a one-coater. Great quality!

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

Feel free to comment if you want. And thank you for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine & Stamping With Pueen 72

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (2 coats).

I love this nail polish. Rimmel’s 60 Seconds formula is fantastic. And I love the milky violet shade very much. It’s just so pretty!

I don’t remember which polish I used as my stamping colour – all I know is that it was, without doubt, a random drugstore nail polish.

I do, however, remember that I used Pueen’s 72 stamping plate. This stamping plate is one of my favourites. It’s part of Pueen’s awesome Stamping Buffet collection.

How do you like this mani? I think it looks really nice. It’s subtle, but not boring. Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Hi there! Today’s mani is another 31 Days Nail Art Challenge entry!

This mani is my attempt at challenge #25 – Inspired By Fashion. And the fashion item that inspired this mani is a scarf of mine.

I’ve used said scarf as backdrop for a few product photos. If you’re interested, you can see the scarf here.

Now onto the mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection).

And I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp on the stars. 🙂

Whilst this mani turned out a little messy, I still liked it. What do you think? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for stopping by!
