Hi there! A couple of weeks ago I did a blue and grey themed mani. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted. But I thought I should still share it.
I painted my nails with MakeUp Revolution True Blue (pinky, index finger, thumb) and NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (ring finger, middle finger).
I added some glitter – namely Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch Top Coat 888 Glitter – to my ring finger. And then I started stamping. 🙂
I chose my QA89 stamping plate – which is one of the many plates I haven’t used before (that’s because the images are too small for my nails when my nails are longer).
And I stamped on different images using Essence’s amazing White Stampy Polish.
Looking closely, the mani wasn’t perfect because the crown and flower images didn’t turn out the way I wanted them to. But I have to admit that, from a distance, the mani actually looked quite nice.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post is a short one about the mani I did the other day. I think it’s not spectacular at all, but my husband really liked it. So I hope a few of you will like it too. 🙂
Let’s start! I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats). This gorgeous polish cost me 33p only – it came in a trio pack for £1 (yes, three polishes = £1 in total at Poundworld). Now that’s what I call a bargain!
The stamped-on image is from Pueen’s 80 plate – which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection. Pueen’s 80 plate features several images of roses – yet somehow I managed to stamp on the exact same rose on every nail. Funny…
Pueen’s 80 plate isn’t my favourite stamping plate. It’s nice to look at, but the images aren’t as nice when they’re stamped on. I don’t know why. I think I should give it another try – and maybe use different colours (something rosey…) and see how that goes.
Oh, before I forget… this time I used another NYC polish to stamp on the images. Normally I use Revlon Colorstay Stiletto, but I misplaced it (so much for bringing my beauty stash in order…). So today I used NYC In A Minute 001 Evil. It’s not the best black polish for stamping, but it’s OK.
Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
