One more thing of a personal nature – we had another mumps outbreak at work. Yikes! Apparently the initial outbreak happened at a university nearby… Work was crazy with some of us having to cover for other people and other departments. People, if you haven’t had mumps as a child, please get vaccinated. Mumps is serious, and it takes you out for 2 weeks! And if you feel symptoms, please stay at home and don’t spread the virus on the train / bus / work place / sandwich place…

And this is it for this week. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats). This is a great polish. Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of light green nail colours, I like this one a lot because the colour really pops. I’m also happy with the quality of the polish. It dries reasonably quickly and it’s opaque in 2 coats. Thumbs up!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is from Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani a lot, and I will redo it once my nails have grown a bit longer.

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Stamping With Finger Angel A024

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

For this simple mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats).

I love this polish, but I think this is (well, was) the last decent mani I managed to do with it. The bottle is about 85% empty, and the polish has thickened quite a bit. I hope I can use the leftover polish to make decals.

For the images I used my relatively new Finger Angel A024 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Bourjois Cocktail A Barcelona 29 & Stamping With MoYou Nails 491

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Bourjois Cocktail A Barcelona 29 (2 coats). I like this polish. The colour and the shimmery finish are gorgeous. And it’s opaque in 2 coats which is unusual for such a light colour.

For the images I used my relatively new MoYou Nails 491 plate. MoYou Nails is different from MoYou London.

Apparently, there used to be 1 company called MoYou, but the co-owners went their separate ways, and now there’s 1 company trading as MoYou London and 1 company trading as MoYou Nails. That’s sorted then!

Oh, and the black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (which, unfortunately, is near empty…).

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid & Double Stamping With Pueen 106

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of milky purple is my favourite nail colour. 🥰

For the images I used Pueen‘s beautiful 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

I decided to double-stamp. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) for the images.

I liked this mani a lot – but I used some of my favourite products, so I knew I’d be happy with the result. 😊
