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!

Hi there! Today’s post is about another nail art challenge that I’ve completed. Well, I haven’t done what I was supposed to do, but since I’m doing the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge for no one but myself, I’m happy to bend the rules. 🙂
Alrighty! For challenge #20 Water Marble I should have done a water marble mani. However, the JQ 43 stamping plate, which I’ve had for ages, features an image that looks like a water marble. So I gave it a try.
And this is the result! Does this mani look like a water marble mani? Remotely. But that’s good enough for me! Challenge completed!
Which products did I use? The white base colour is MUA White Wash. The stamping colour is Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria. The stamping plate is an unbranded one – it’s just called JQ 43.
Any comments? Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Hi there! Today’s post is about a new version of a mani I did not too long ago.
For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 138. I don’t like this base colour, but the bottle is almost empty (!), so I’m trying to finish it. However, I might have a backup…
Anyhoo… today I tried to do something new – double stamping. So I stamped 2 layers of colour onto my base colour. I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Revlon Parfumerie Beachy.
The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection.
I think the double stamping effect is very subtle – that’s because Beachy is a rather subtle golden shade. However, I’m not disappointed. I think this double-stamped mani turned out quite alright for a first attempt. 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post. And this mani is also my attempt at Animal Print nails which is challenge #13 of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.
For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea. This polish is supposed to be a holographic nail polish, but the holo effect isn’t very strong. And I would describe the actual colour of this polish as steel. Or steel-y. It’s neither grey nor blue.
The cute sea life images are featured on MoYou’s Doodles 07 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.
I realise that the person who thought up the original 31 Days Nail Art Challenge thought of Animal Print nails as zebra or leopard nails (or something similar). But I didn’t want to do another animal stripes mani so soon. And sea creatures are animals too, so I think I’m OK. 🙂
I like this mani! The holo polish could be prettier, but the images are just too cute. What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!
Hi there! I think it’s time for another Nail Of The Day post. So here it is!
For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 902 Craving Coral. I don’t love the colour, but I bought the polish (years ago), so I have to use it every now and then. And that’s what I’m doing! 🙂
I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp a remotely floral (?) image onto my nails. Said image is featured on Pueen’s 73 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).
I didn’t love this mani. The images are far from perfect. This was 100% my fault because I was in a hurry. But in real life the mani didn’t look too bad. 🙂
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. 🙂
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!
