Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 09 Instant Passion & Foils / A-Z Nail Art Challenge D-Diva Nails

Hi there! Since this week is Nail Week, I have another Nail Of The Day post for you today.

This mani is also my attempt at Diva Nails which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge which I’m doing for no one but myself!

I just wanted to do plain dark red nails, but I was bored of the simple mani before the polish had dried. So I kept thinking… now what? Then I had an idea – foils!

So… I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 09 Instant Passion (1 coat). And I used some leftover gold foil to add a little sparkle to my nails. Then one coat of clear polish – job done! 🙂

I really liked this quick and easy to do mani. What do you think? Feel free to let me know your thoughts. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rainbow Foils

072015 Foils2Hi there! Today’s post is a short one about the foil mani I did the other day.

I had to do something with my nails but I didn’t have much time as it was quite late already and I knew I’d be waking up with sheet marks the next day if I painted my nails.

So I went for an all-over rainbow mani using leftover bits from foils in all colours.

The foil mani looks a bit patchy and uneven in the photo. However, in real life it was the exact opposite – even and without any visible bald spots.

I’ve done countless foil manis which looked much, much better, but I think this mani looks kind of cute. 🙂 I think I will do another rainbow mani soon.
