Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet & China Glaze Black Mesh

Hi there! This is another mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet (2 coats). I’m not a big fan of the colour orange, but this is, without doubt, my favourite orange polish because it’s a great base colour for stamping (evidence here and here).

However, this time I didn’t stamp. I found a few special effect top coats in my stash, like this one – China Glaze Black Mesh.

A few years ago this kind of crackle or shatter top coat was the rage. I didn’t care for these top coats, but when they hit the Poundstores, I picked up a few colours to play with.

Needless to say, I didn’t do too many manis using these special effect top coats… However, I want to make an effort to use unloved products too. And that’s why I ended up with this mani. I think this mani looked kind of cool. Ugly but cool. Cool in its own little ugly way. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 053 Apricot Punch & Stamping With Pueen 106

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 053 Apricot Punch (2 coats). I’m not a big fan of this kind of nail colour, but I already own the polish, so why not use it?

For the images I used Pueen‘s 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I really liked this mani – in part because I didn’t expect it to look nice (did I mention I don’t love the base colour…). What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!

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 – Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47 & Stamping With Pueen 72 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge C – Coral

Hi there! After yesterday’s Battle Of The Base Coats I’ve got a regular Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47 (2 coats). This polish is amazing. It goes on like a dream, it dries quickly, and it’s opaque in 2 easy coats!

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection). The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I’m happy with this mani. I know the image on the middle finger doesn’t look perfect, but this is an issue with the plate, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

In any event, I like this mani a lot! Do you agree? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

PS: Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I’ve done this mani for my very own A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This mani is for challenge C – Coral. 🙂

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

Hi there! Today’s post is about a new version of a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 138. I don’t like this base colour, but the bottle is almost empty (!), so I’m trying to finish it. However, I might have a backup…

Anyhoo… today I tried to do something new – double stamping. So I stamped 2 layers of colour onto my base colour. I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Revlon Parfumerie Beachy.

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection.

I think the double stamping effect is very subtle – that’s because Beachy is a rather subtle golden shade. However, I’m not disappointed. I think this double-stamped mani turned out quite alright for a first attempt. 🙂

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!
