One more thing of a personal nature – we had another mumps outbreak at work. Yikes! Apparently the initial outbreak happened at a university nearby… Work was crazy with some of us having to cover for other people and other departments. People, if you haven’t had mumps as a child, please get vaccinated. Mumps is serious, and it takes you out for 2 weeks! And if you feel symptoms, please stay at home and don’t spread the virus on the train / bus / work place / sandwich place…

And this is it for this week. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats). This is a great polish. Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of light green nail colours, I like this one a lot because the colour really pops. I’m also happy with the quality of the polish. It dries reasonably quickly and it’s opaque in 2 coats. Thumbs up!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is from Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani a lot, and I will redo it once my nails have grown a bit longer.

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 201, Models Own Goose & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today. ☺️

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 201 (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs). This is a nice polish. I like that it’s opaque in 2 coats. This was a nice surprise!

For the ring fingers and pinkies I used Models Own Goose (3 coats). I love this cute glitter polish so much!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is part of their Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! Today’s post is not only the last post this week, but it’s also the last post this Nail Week.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (2 coats). This is a pretty peachy-pink shade with microshimmer galore. It’s not my favourite nail colour, but it looks amazing in the sun!

I thought that a few simple rosey images would look nice with this base colour, so I chose Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

The black polish I stamped with is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Stamping With Pueen 80

NYC 900 Wonder Purple Pueen 80Hi there! Today’s post is a short one about the mani I did the other day. I think it’s not spectacular at all, but my husband really liked it. So I hope a few of you will like it too. 🙂

Let’s start! I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats). This gorgeous polish cost me 33p only – it came in a trio pack for £1 (yes, three polishes = £1 in total at Poundworld). Now that’s what I call a bargain!

The stamped-on image is from Pueen’s 80 plate – which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection. Pueen’s 80 plate features several images of roses – yet somehow I managed to stamp on the exact same rose on every nail. Funny…

Pueen’s 80 plate isn’t my favourite stamping plate. It’s nice to look at, but the images aren’t as nice when they’re stamped on. I don’t know why. I think I should give it another try – and maybe use different colours (something rosey…) and see how that goes.

Oh, before I forget… this time I used another NYC polish to stamp on the images. Normally I use Revlon Colorstay Stiletto, but I misplaced it (so much for bringing my beauty stash in order…). So today I used NYC In A Minute 001 Evil. It’s not the best black polish for stamping, but it’s OK.

Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
