Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Stamping With Pueen 44 / Nail Art Challenge #25 Inspired By Fashion

Hi there! Today’s mani is another 31 Days Nail Art Challenge entry!

This mani is my attempt at challenge #25 – Inspired By Fashion. And the fashion item that inspired this mani is a scarf of mine.

I’ve used said scarf as backdrop for a few product photos. If you’re interested, you can see the scarf here.

Now onto the mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection).

And I used Essence’s White Stampy Polish to stamp on the stars. 🙂

Whilst this mani turned out a little messy, I still liked it. What do you think? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 703 White Hot Love, Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir, Yes Sir! & Stamping With Pueen 39 / Nail Art Challenge #26 Inspired By A Pattern

upload-1Hi there! I’ve got another nail post for you today. I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And today’s mani is my attempt at challenge #26 Inspired By A Pattern.

The pattern that inspired me to do this mani is the purple butterfly print on one of my scarves.

I’ve used said scarf as backdrop for a few product photos. If you’re interested, you can see the scarf here and here.

Whilst my mani isn’t a copy of the butterfly pattern, I’m happy with it. In addition, the nail challenge wasn’t about copying anything, but to be inspired by something. So I think I did alright! 🙂

For this mani I used the following products:
Rimmel 60 Seconds 703 White Hot Love (white base, 2 coats),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir, Yes Sir! (stamping colour),
Pueen‘s 39 stamping plate (from Pueen‘s Love Elements collection),
JQ-L04 stamping plate,
Flowers 02 stamping plate

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen X-treme Wear Time To Shine & Stamping With Pueen 44 / Nail Art Challenge #8 Metallic Nails

upload-2Hi there! I’ve got another nail post for you today. This mani is my attempt at #8 Metallic Nails for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing as a lifetime challenge).

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine, a pale gold with a metallic finish.

The star images I opted for are featured on Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection). And the black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.

I like how this mani turned out. It’s got gold and stars, and I think it’s perfect as a pre-Christmas mani.

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

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Kiss Chase And Stamping With Pueen Love Elements 39 & 46

Ciate Kiss Chase Pueen Love ElementsHi there! Since it’s time for another mani post, I thought I show you one of the manis I wore last week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Kiss Chase (two coats). I like the cute pink shade, and I’m impressed with how quickly the polish dried. Well done, Ciaté!

The stamping plates I chose for this mani were Pueen’s 39 and 46 plates from Pueen’s Love Elements stamping collection. I love the images. They’re all so cute.

The black polish I stamped with is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto. It’s not a real stamping polish, but it stamps perfectly.

Do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Fearne Minty Maggie And Stamping With Pueen Love Elements 26 & 33

NOTDHi there! A few days ago I let my husband pick my nail colour again. He opted for a pale mint green (not my favourite colour), Fearne Minty Maggie.

Minty Maggie is a decent polish that’s almost opaque in one coat – which is unusual for such a light shade. And the polish dried reasonably quickly too. Nice!

Since I’m not the biggest fan of pastel nail colours, it didn’t take me long to decide that I would stamp. And I chose random images from Pueen’s 26 and 33 plates (both plates are part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto, my favourite black non-stamping polish that stamps perfectly.

I’m happy with this mani. I know my nails are quite short and my hands look quite rough at the moment. That’s because they really suffered during the big post-summer clean and clear-out we had last weekend. But they’ll be OK in a few days. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Quick Dry Nail Polish 46K & Stamping With Pueen 44

Manhattan 46K Pueen 44Hi there! Since today’s nail post concludes nail week, I’ve saved the best for last. 🙂

I painted my nails with Manhattan Quick Dry Nail Polish 46K (two coats). I really liked the creamy dark red colour and I was pleased that the polish dried quickly.

Many quick dry polishes are dry to the touch in no time, but they still take a while to dry completely. This one didn’t take long. Fantastic!

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 44 plate from Pueen’s Love Elements stamping collection.

I opted for two different images featuring stars. And I stamped these on with my white Essence Stampy Polish.

I really liked this mani because it was easy to do and it looked quite cute. 🙂 What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Watercolours & Stamping Featuring Rimmel, Revlon, NYC and more

uploadHi there! Today I want to show you the cute mani I did the other day. I wasn’t sure if it would work out, but I really liked it. And the best thing is that it was really easy to do!

I used NYC In A Minute 019 Perfect Day (light grey, two coats) as my base colour.

Then I chose four colours as my watercolours:
Rimmel French White Tip Pro 110 French White (white),
Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 406 Cute As A Kitten Heel (yellow),
Revlon Colorstay 110 Marmalade (orange),
Fearne Minty Maggie (mint green).

And then I sponged on the watercolours. It’s exactly this: I dabbed on the colours randomly – with a make-up sponge. It’s really easy. You can’t get it wrong.

The last step was stamping on the butterflies. I used images from six different stamping plates. One of those plates was Pueen 39 from Pueen’s Love Elements collection. All the other plates were unbranded ones. The black polish I used to stamp on the images was Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Please feel free to tell me what you think of this mani. And thanks for stopping by.
