Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With Pueen 116 + 117

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish. The colour is gorgeous, and the formula is absolutely perfect.

For the images I used 2 stamping plates – Pueen 116 (thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Pueen 117 (ring fingers, pinkies). These 2 stamping plates are part of Pueen‘s super cute Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

I didn’t love this mani, but it was a nice enough filler mani for a few days.

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With MoYou London Illusion 09

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats).

I love this polish. The colour is gorgeous, the formula is a dream, and the polish dries reasonably quickly. Great stuff, Orly!

I used my new MoYou London Illusion 09 stamping plate and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto for the images.

I really like the look of this mani. This stamping plate wasn’t my first choice, but now I’m glad I bought it. I can’t wait to use this stamping plate again!

Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With Pueen 56

HI there! Happy Saturday! I’ve got another Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish. The colour is simply gorgeous, and the formula is just perfect.

For the stamping bit I chose Pueen‘s 56 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection). This is one of a number of stamping plates that I’ve never used, even though it’s been in my stash for ages.

The black polish I stamped with is a home-made “stamping” polish.

I didn’t like the mani because I didn’t like the images. I might give this stamping plate another try, or I might just give it away.

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova / A-Z Nail Art Challenge M – Movie

Hi there! Today’s NOTD post is about a mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. It’s for M – Movie!

The movie that inspired this mani is Pretty In Pink (with ♥ James Spader ♥).

Alrighty! For this mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish. It’s a dream to work with.

The glitter I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

This is my favourite glitter topper. It looks sensational, it dries quickly, it feels perfectly smooth, (no stand-offish glitter particles), and it makes my nails feel super strong. I love it!

I really liked this mani. It was simple and pretty. Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With Pueen 77

Orly Basket Case Pueen 77Hi there! After yesterday’s ugly mani post, today’s NOTD is easier on the eyes.

For this mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish – it dries quickly, it’s opaque in two coats, and the formula is a dream to work with.

The images I stamped on are featured on Pueen’s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

This mani wasn’t a favourite (I did it a while ago). That’s because I didn’t take the time to actually select the images that would go on my nails, and I even messed up the image on the index finger. That’s what you get when you stamp all your nails in about 60 seconds…

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping

062016 Orly Basket Base and StampingHi there! When I did the stamping tutorial last week, I didn’t just do one nail. I did a full mani. And since I’ve finally found the picture I took of my nails, I thought I’d do a post. 🙂

I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case – which is one of the most beautiful pink polishes I have. It’s bright, it has a cool undertone and it’s a fantastic summer colour.

I stamped several random images from several different stamping plates onto my nails. All those plates were unbranded ones.

The black polish I used to stamp with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil which I’ve been stamping with a lot lately.

This post concludes ‘nail week’ – so next week I’ll go back to posting product reviews (with the weekly nail post thrown in). However, I hope you enjoyed ‘nail week’ – I certainly did.

As always, feel free to let me know what you think of this mani. Or comment if you’d just like to chat. 🙂
