Nail Of The Day – Models Own Sarong Wrap, NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry, Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust & Stamping With Pueen 83

Hi there! Happy Monday! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry (2 coats). The glitter top coat I used is Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust (1 coat).

I painted my pinkies and ring fingers with 2 coats of white polish and 2 coats of Models Own Sarong Wrap. The yellow Models Own polish is poorly pigmented, and that’s why I needed to start with a white base underneath.

I stamped with Pueen‘s 83 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani very much. I’ve done purple and yellow manis before, and I know I’ll be doing more purple and yellow manis in the not too distant future. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Sarong Wrap & Stamping With Pueen 83 (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Nail Week is still on, so here’s another mani I did some time ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark‘s PS… Snow White nail polish (1 coat). Once the white base had dried, it was time for Models Own Sarong Wrap (2 coats). Sarong Wrap is a low-quality polish. It’s terribly thin, and I don’t think I would have gotten much (or any) joy from it had I not started with a white base.

Anyhoo… I thought that light pink accents would look nice, so I used a small piece of a makeup sponge to apply pink polish to my nails. Well, it didn’t look great, but I didn’t have the time to correct the mistake, so I just left it as it was.

Then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 83 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and Revlon Top Speed 880 Black Star.

Nail Of The Day – Astor Perfect Stay Gel Shine 604 Just Fabulous, Rimmel 60 Seconds 507 Round And Round In Circles, Revlon Shining Strength & Stamping With Pueen 83

Hi there! This is the 7th Nail Of The Day post this week, so Nail Week is now over!

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Perfect Stay Gel Shine 604 Just Fabulous (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 507 Round And Round In Circles (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

To be honest, the yellow polish could have used another coat, but instead of that I decided to use a random light blue(ish) polish and a small piece of a sponge to add a few blobs of colour.

Then I used Revlon Shining Strength (a.k.a. Revlon 261 Sparkling) to add some sparkle to the ring fingers and pinkies.

And I used Pueen‘s 83 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go for the images.

I didn’t love the mani, but I think it was nice enough. I was also happy to find out how beautiful Revlon Shining Strength is. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Hello Kitty Pink, Essence Colour Boost 10 Instant Adventure, 2True Glitterati Shade 6 & Stamping With Pueen 83

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today. For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boots 10 Instant Adventure (1 coat, pinkies and ring fingers) and Hello Kitty Pink (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I love the Essence polish. It’s a dark blueberry jelly shade, and I love that it’s a one-coater! The Hello Kitty polish is of poor quality. I had tip-wear after half a day. I wore the mani for 3 days and I had to fill in the tips 6 times!

The glitter topper I used on my pinkies and ring fingers is 2True Glitterati Shade 6. This is a great glitter topper. It’s densely packed with glitter and it dries quickly.

I used Pueen‘s 83 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) for the images on my thumbs, index and middle fingers. The black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I did like this mani. The 2 styles wouldn’t have looked spectacular on their own, but I loved how the 2 contrasting styles looked together.
