Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! Today’s nail of the day post is about a mani I did a little while ago. I didn’t love the mani, so I wasn’t sure whether to do a post or not… well, here we are!

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam (2 coats). I don’t like this polish. The colour is a mix of blue, green and gold and it has a metallic (almost foil) finish. It’s a mess.

Then I thought that double-stamping might save the mani. (It didn’t work!) I used Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Revlon Briliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold) to stamp images onto my nails. The stamping plate I used is MoYou‘s super cute Doodles 07 plate.

I really didn’t like this mani. Quite a few ladies at work told me how much they loved this particular mani (?). However, it’s definitely one of my least favourite manis of 2017.

How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch. By the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Fearne Devilish Diamonds & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is about another Christmas-themed mani I did a couple of days ago. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 280 Pure Silver (1 coat).

This polish looks gorgeous in the bottle. But it’s actually remarkably ugly because it’s very brush-strokey. So I had to fix my mani right there! I painted 1 coat of Fearne’s Devilish Diamonds over Rimmel’s ugly polish – and it saved my mani!

I used Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (the blue polish) and my new unbranded Christmas-themed stamping plate to add a few wintry images.

I think this mani looks great. It was impossible to capture the real life beauty of this mani, but it still looks pretty nice in the picture. And yes, this mani is more wintry than christmassey, but I think that’s perfectly alright. 🙂

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria, Orly Liquid Vinyl & Stamping With Pueen 55 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge I – Inspired By A Colour

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a while back. I really liked this mani, so I’m not sure why I left it for so long…

Anyway, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria (ring fingers), and Orly Liquid Vinyl (middle fingers).

I used Orly Snow Cone (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Orly Liquid Vinyl (ring fingers) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 310 Gilty Pleasure (middle fingers) as my stamping colours.

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 55 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

This mani is my interpretation of the Inspired By A Colour challenge which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. The colour in question is, obviously, blue. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy, Essence Glitter Jewels 03 Glitz & Glam, Orly Liquid Vinyl And Stamping With Pueen

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a random mani that I did a while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy. The black base on the accent nail is Orly Liquid Vinyl. The glitter is Essence Glitter Jewels 03 Glitz & Glam.

I stamped with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Pueen’s 54 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

I didn’t like the colour combo, and I’ve never liked this stamping plate (I’ve never used it before). So, I didn’t like this mani. But it was OK for the 2 days that I wore it.

Onto new (and better) nail adventures! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 238 MoMa & Stamping With Pueen 65

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

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 238 MoMa (2 coats).

And I stamped with Pueen’s 65 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I think this mani looks alright. But I don’t love it because the pink polish turned out to be darker than expected. I wanted a pale pink, but I got a bright pink…

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Quick Dry Nail Polish 18 Strobe & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-S161 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge Z – Zebra

Hi there! Today I’m showing you another mani that I did for the brilliant A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For the Z – Zebra challenge I painted my nails with Primark PS… Quick Dry Nail Polish 18 Strobe (2 easy coats). This is a very good white polish. And it’s 60p only. I will stock up!

I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Bundle Monster’s BM-S161 plate (from Bundle Monster’s Fuzzy And Ferocious set) to stamp zebra stripes onto my nails.

I’ve never done a zebra mani before but I think it turned out quite alright. What do you think? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂
