Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn, Sleek Nailed By Sleek Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida & Stamping / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #2 Orange Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about the second mani I did for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge – it’s challenge #2 ORANGE NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (3 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and with Sleek‘s Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida (2 coats over a white base, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I needed a white base because Sleek’s orange polish isn’t of great quality. It’s incredibly thin, and I doubt that even 4 coats would have been enough. I also found that this polish took ages to dry. Yikes! It’s obvious why Sleek discontinued this nail polish collection!

The stamping plate I used is the my trusted unbranded Flowers 02 plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani – especially the textured polish. I didn’t like textured polishes when they were the rage a few years ago, but I do like them now! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 138 & Stamping With Pueen 74

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 138. Since orange is one of my least favourite nail colours, I decided to stamp.

I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin as my stamping polish.

The images are from Pueen’s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

If you’d like to know more about stamping, I’ve written an entire tutorial which covers everything I wish I had known when I started stamping. 🙂

Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading!
