Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn, Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue & Stamping With Pueen 51

Hi there! Since this week is Nail Week, today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (2 coats, pinkies and ring fingers) and Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

For the images I used my Pueen 51 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto – which is my all-time favourite black nail polish.

I had no expectations for this mani, but I ended up liking it.

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Stamping With Pueen 51

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post. 🙂

For this mani (which I did ages ago) I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats). I love this polish. NYC did a great job with it – with the entire line actually. It’s sad the brand has disappeared.

For the images I used my much loved Pueen 51 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Whilst this isn’t the most spectacular mani, I liked it a lot. It’s definitely one of the better filler manis I’ve done over the past couple of months.

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 229 Soft Hydrangea & Stamping With Pueen 51

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 229 Soft Hydrangea (2 coats). I love this colour. It’s stunningly beautiful!

I also decided to stamp! I used Pueen‘s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize.

I really liked this mani. I love the bright and powerful base colour, and I think the golden images add to the summery feel of this mani.

What nail colour are you wearing right now? Feel free to get in touch! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Pueen 51

Hi there! Let me show you a mani I did not too long ago!

For this mani I painted my nails with Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink (2 coats). This is a lovely polish. Great colour, quick-dry and easy to work with formula, lovely glossy finish… truly great stuff. Thank you, Max Factor!

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply a few blobs of purple polish (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid).

For the images I used Pueen‘s 51 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and a black “stamping” polish I made from black polish and black eyeshadow. 🙂

I liked this mani. It didn’t look perfect, but I really liked the bright and optimistic look of it. What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Waikiki & Stamping With Pueen 51 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge E – Exotic

Hi there! Today’s mani is my attempt at Exotic Nails which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Waikiki. I like this polish. Great formula, awesome colour!

I used Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I think this mani is quite pretty. The colour really pops, and I love the images. This stamping plate is one of my favourites, and I’m always happy to use it!

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

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 085 & Stamping With Pueen 51

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is about a simple mani I did the other day.

I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 085. I like the cool pink shade and the easy to work with and quick-dry formula. However, this Astor polish is a scented polish – and the burned raspberry scent annoyed me quite a bit. Scented polish… who thought this up?

Anyway, let’s get to step 2! I wanted to see if Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go stamped well. So I gave it a try – and it worked out fine! Do you agree?

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the stamping plate… I chose Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) because it’s one of my favourite stamping plates. 🙂

I think this mani turned out quite alright. I like it! What do you think? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon 260 Bold Sangria & Stamping With Pueen 51

uploadHi there! Today’s post is the last post this week – so it’s the last post this nail week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 260 Bold Sangria (2 coats). I think Bold Sangria is one of the best dark purple polishes out there. Great quality, lovely shade! Thanks, Revlon!

And I used Essence’s white stamping polish and Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) to stamp floral images onto my nails.

I didn’t like this mani because I managed to smudge all the images on my right hand. I think I moisturised my hands too soon after cleaning up around the nails with nail polish remover…

However, in real life the mistakes were hardly visible. Well, in real life no one stares at my nails and no one’s looking for mistakes. 😉 And I did get a few compliments on this mani, so it wasn’t too bad.

Like I said, this is the last nail post this nail week. I haven’t done a weekly recap post today, so if you think you’ve missed a post or if you’d like to see the other manis I’ve written about this week (or ever…), click here and scroll down. I’m back with a “regular” post tomorrow. So in the meantime… Happy Sunday!
