Nail Of The Day – Barry M Crush & Stamping With Nicole Diary 089

Hi there! Today’s post is the last post for this week. This also means that Nail Week has come to an end, and I’ll be back with a product review tomorrow. 🙂

But for now, let’s focus on the nails! 👀 For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Crush. This polish is part of Barry M’s Matte Nail Paint collection. I don’t care for matte nail colours, so I used a regular clear top coat for a glossy finish.

The stamping plate I used is Nicole Diary‘s 089 plate which features tropical floral and leafy images.

The polish I stamped with is Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotise.

Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match & Rainbow Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match (1 coat). Essence’s Colour Boost polishes are one-coaters. I bought them (yes, all the colours) because I thought they’d make great stamping polishes, but I also use them when I don’t have the time to wait for multiple coats of polish to dry.

This time I also used rainbow foils to add a pop of colour to the blue nails.

The mani looked great in real life, and I wish I had been able to capture its beauty. But there’s just not enough daylight this time of year…

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D & Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post.

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D (2 coats). I love this beautiful raspberry shade, but the polish could have dried faster. A lot faster!

The cute glitter polish I used is Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered. I love this glitter polish. Unfortunately, this one dries super slowly too!

I like the look of the 2 polishes, but I didn’t do my “homework” properly. I was sloppy with the cleaning up around the cuticles, and I could have given a certain cuticle a gentle push back. Anyhoo… what colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment?

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine & Stamping

Hi there! This is another Nail Of The Day post… 😊

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (2 coats). This polish is amazing. It’s almost a one-coater, and the colour is gorgeous.

I used 2 stamping plates – Nicole Diary 062 (ring and index fingers) and Beauty Big Bang 15 (pinkies, middle fingers, thumbs).

The pretty gold polish I stamped with is Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize.

I liked this mani a lot because it had purple, gold and stars. What’s not to like?

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey & Barry M Amethyst Glitter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey (2 coats). I wonder why they chose this name for this brown (!) polish…

I wanted to stamp, but I thought the base colour was a bit too dark. So I decided to use a glitter top coat. I chose Barry M Amethyst Glitter – a super cute rainbow glitter top coat!

I didn’t know where I was headed when I started to paint my nails. Because of this I’m very happy that the mani turned out the way it did. I liked it a lot! It wasn’t special, but I think it looked cute.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Water Decals & Foils

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (2 coats, middle and ring fingers, thumbs). I used some gold foil to add a touch of sparkle to the plain green nails.

Then I used floral water decals on my pinkies and ring fingers. I applied 1 coat of Essie As Gold As It Gets for a hint of sparkle. It’s hardly visible in the photo, but it looked nice in real life.

I liked the mani! It looks very busy in the photo, but it’s actually not – you have to try to ignore the colourful sticker on the nail polish lid.
