Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Stamping With Pueen 93

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple.

This kind of light purple is my favourite nail colour, and this particular polish is very nice. It doesn’t dry in a minute, but it dries reasonably quickly. Great stuff, NYC!

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 93 plate which is part of Pueen‘s gorgeous Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection.

The black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto. I’ve already gone through one bottle, and I think I’m already halfway through bottle number 2!

My Favourite Manis Of 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite manis of 2018. I stamped like a maniac, I used a lot of glitter, and I did plenty of foil manis. Scroll down if you’d like to know which manis I really liked this year. 🙂

Galaxy Nails
Yellow Nails
Foil Nails

Purple Nails
Halloween Nails
Christmas Nails

Blue Nails
Mixed Nails
Halloween Nails

Foil Nails
Orange Nails
Out Of Space Nails

These were my favourite manis from 2018. I bought more stamping plates, and I have a crazy amount of foils and glitter toppers, so I’m sure 2019 will be a similarly colourful year for nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did quite some time ago. Oops! 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats). Whilst the name of the polish implies that it’s a quick-dry polish, it’s not. However, the sensationally beautiful shade of purple makes up for the longer drying time.

This shade of purple (I like to call it milky purple) is my favourite nail colour. And this time I wanted to wear it with my favourite glitter topper – Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova (1 coat). By the way, this glitter topper dries in no time! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 221 Spring Street & Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 842 Chili Flakes

Hi there! I’ve got another Nail Of The Day post for you. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 221 Spring Street (2 coats). I’m not a fan of colours like this one. But I already own the polish, so I might as well just use it.

Colours like this one aren’t great for stamping, so I decided to try a new glitter topper. I went for Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 842 Chili Flakes. By the way, “new” means “unused and has been sitting in my stash forever”.

I liked the mani much more than I thought I would. So it’s quite unfortunate that it didn’t photograph well.

Do you like coral nail polish? Do you like glittery nails? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy & Stamping With Pueen 77 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge L – Love

Hi there! Today’s post is about my Valentine’s Day mani. Quite late, huh?

Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

I decided to double-stamp, and I used 2 non-stamping polishes for this – Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold) and NYC In A Minute 230 Penn Station (red).

I think this mani was alright. It was nothing special, but it looked cute. And I really liked the double-stamping effect!

This mani goes in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file it under LLove! How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

NYC Metro Quartet Eye Shadow 796B Queens Boulevard

Hi there! Today’s post is about a little eyeshadow palette which I bought a while ago. It’s NYC Metro Quartet Eye Shadow 796B Queens Boulevard. I picked it up from a local bargain store (can’t remember which one) for either 99p or £1. In other words – it was super cheap, and I couldn’t resist. 🙂

As you can see, this eye palette is a small compact that comes with a tiny double-ended sponge applicator. And there are four eyeshadows in this palette. Shade 1 is a shimmery taupe. Shade 2 is a mix of blue and violet. Shade 3 is a shimmery champagne colour (highlighter). And shade 4 is a violet-tinted fuchsia.

The eyeshadows blend nicely, but they’re not very well pigmented. However, I really like the shades, so I don’t mind putting a little more effort into my eye make-up. And since this eye palette was £1 only, I can’t really complain. 🙂

Oh, and here’s a photo of what the eye palette looked like before I opened it!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, MakeUp Revolution True Blue, Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888 Glitter & Stamping With QA89

NYC A Perfect Day MUR True Blue Miss Sporty Glitter and StampingHi 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! 🙂
