Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine, PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Essence Come To Town Lametta Topper

Hi there! I’ve got another Christmas Nail Ideas post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (green), PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (white), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (gold). The glitter top coat I used on my middle fingers is Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper.

I like this mani because it was easy to do, and because it doesn’t look like any of those standard Christmas manis that everyone (and that includes me) does this time of year.

What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Quick Dry 46, Barry M Amethyst Glitter, Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Rebel 07

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhatten Quick Dry 46K (dark red base colour, 2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Primark PS… Marshmallow (white base, 2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

The pretty glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter. For the images I used MoYou London‘s Rebel 07 stamping plate and a random black polish.

The mani wasn’t what I had in mind. Whilst the red glitter nails looked great, the black and white nails weren’t my best work. The black polish I stamped with isn’t suitable for stamping, and the images ended up the wrong way around… Whoops!

Ah well, things like these happen sometimes. Onto the next mani! 🙂

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

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With Pueen 114

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. And it’s another Halloween-inspired mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Marshmallow (2 coats). I like this polish. It’s opaque in 2 easy coats, and it was 90p. Thanks, Primark!

I used Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and Manhattan Quick Dry 46K for the images. I did another mani with this stamping recently, and my blogging buddy Helen from Brokedown Vanity thought the image would be perfect for Halloween. I don’t think she had this kind of mani  in mind, but when she mentioned Halloween, I thought “OMG, yes”. 🙂

I do like this mani because it reminds me very much of Dexter. I did smudge a few bits, but all in all, I think this is another mani I’m happy to file under Halloween Nail Ideas.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Manhattan, Sally Hansen & Primark

Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. I did this galaxy mani a few weeks ago. Here’s how:

I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge and Primark’s PS… Marshmallow polish to sponge white blobs onto my nails. Then I used 2 colour polishes, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies and Manhattan Mode Pilot 01M, to fill in the white blobs. I used a sponge for this too.

There’s no galaxy mani without glitter, so I applied 1 coat of Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova. This is my favourite glitter top coat!

I’ve done better galaxy manis in the past. However, I still think this one looked quite cool. Do you like nail art? Have you tried to do galaxy nails before? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Max Factor, Primark & Essence

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

Alrighty, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds Hot Black To Go (2 coats, but 1 would have been enough).

Then I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply white blobs (Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow) to my nails.

I repeated the process with 2 random colour polishes – Essence Colour & Go 06 Instant Happiness and Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink.

The glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova which is not just my favourite glitter top coat, but most likely also the most beautiful and the most versatile glitter top coat in the history of the planet.

I really liked this mani. It was inspited by boredom, but it turned out to be quite cool. Have you tried galaxy nails? If not, why not? Would you like to try galaxy nails? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend! This week is going to be Nail Week. Yes, that means I’ll post about manis only. And today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago. I’ve done a very similar mani for Halloween 2017, so you could say I’m recycling my own ideas. 😀

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is a great white polish. I’m glad I stocked up because I haven’t seen this polish in quite some time.

I used an unnamed tomato red Beauty UK polish and a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply the “blood”. For the bat images I used MoYou London‘s Festive 53 plate (big bats), an unbranded stamping plate (small bats) and my home-made “stamping” polish.

I likd this mani. But I think I should have chosen a more vibrant red polish for the blood effect. 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 – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow, China Glaze Red Satin, Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green & Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (pinkies), China Glaze Red Satin (ring and middle fingers), and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (index fingers and thumbs).

The glitter topper I used on my pinkies is Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter.

I really like this mani! But I’ve realised that I need a better red glitter topper!

Why did I do this mani? Well, I’m a total tennis nut. And Belarus has been my favourite Fed Cup team for quite some time now.

Why is that? Well, over the past 2 years the Belarusian fed cup players have shown that they’re true champions. The players have given their all, and they’ve played well above their respective rankings to despatch higher ranked players on a number of occasions. How could anyone not root for them?! Well, I certainly hope they win their tie this weekend!
