Nail Of The Day – Revlon 040 Fuchsia Fever, Ciaté Showtime & Stamping With Maniology BM-XL217

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 040 Fuchsia Fever (thumbs, index and middle fingers). This is a great polish. I love the colour, and I’m obsessed with the formula and the quick drying time.

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) BL-XL217 stamping plate.

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

On the ring fingers and pinkies I used Ciaté Showtime (3 coats).

I liked the girly look of this mani. However, I didn’t enjoy removing the glitter. It’s normal for glitter top coats and polishes to be a bit more difficult to remove than regular nail polish, but this glitter polish was an absolute nightmare. I think I might have buy peel-off base coat (in case I’ll ever wear this glitter polish again).

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Teeny Greeny Bikini & Stamping With Born Pretty BP-L073

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Teeny Greeny Bikini (3 coats). This is a strange foil-effect polish. Fortunately, the rather unattractive foil-effect is only visible under artificial light. Therefore I took a photo in daylight – much better!

The stamping plate I used is Born Pretty BP-L073. The black polish I stamped with is the amazing Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

All in all, not a bad mani. Not a favourite, but definitely better than the last few!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Top Speed 570 Vintage & Essence Glamaxy Top Coat 34 Glamaxy Far Far Away (Photo Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about the mani I wore over the New Year’s weekend.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 570 Vintage (2 coats). I like this nail polish a lot. It’s a gorgeous red – it’s dark with a touch of wine and plum – it’s so beautiful!

The flakie top coat I used is Essence Glamaxy Top Coat 34 Glamaxy Far Far Away (1 coat).

This top coat is stunning. It’s a shame it doesn’t look great in the photo. Unfortunately, there was hardly any natural light, and this top coat doesn’t photgraph well under artificial light.

But the mani looked great in real life. I’ll redo it in the spring to show off the beautiful top coat in all its glory.

Nail Of The Day – Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 & Pop Rocks Scalper

Hi there! Today’s short post is about a rather simple mani I did a few days ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Miss Sport Lasting Colour 500 (2 coats). This is a beautiful shade and a quality polish. It’s a shame that the brand no longer exists.

The glitter top coat I used is Pop Rocks Scalper. This is a red-tinted jelly top coat with silver holographic glitter. I don’t use it much, but it is a cute glitter top coat.

I didn’t love this mani, but it wasn’t much of a surprise as it was a result of not having a single creative thought that day. The mani looked good enough for a few days, and that was OK. But hopefully the next mani will be more original!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 411 Navy Seal & China Glaze Pizzazz

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 411 Navy Seal (2 coats). This is a beautiful navy polish. A bit lighter than most navy shades, almost ‘dusty’. I like this polish very much!

The cute rainbow glitter top coat that I used is China Glaze Pizzazz. This glitter polish is an oldie; it was part of a Christmas set I bought ages ago.

I liked the look of this mani a lot. Unfortunately, it was impossible to capture what the mani actually looked like in real life. None of the photos I took did the mani justice. I will redo it in the spring or summer in natural light.
