Nail Of The Day – Orly Basket Case & Stamping With Pueen 56

HI there! Happy Saturday! I’ve got another Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Orly Basket Case (2 coats). I love this polish. The colour is simply gorgeous, and the formula is just perfect.

For the stamping bit I chose Pueen‘s 56 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection). This is one of a number of stamping plates that I’ve never used, even though it’s been in my stash for ages.

The black polish I stamped with is a home-made “stamping” polish.

I didn’t like the mani because I didn’t like the images. I might give this stamping plate another try, or I might just give it away.

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 – Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy, Superdrug B. Complete 163 Rainy Day & Stamping With Pueen 72

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy (3 coats, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs) and Superdrug B. Complete 163 Rainy Day (3 coats, ring and middle fingers).

I used 3 different stamping plates – Pueen‘s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) for the full nail images, and 2 unbranded stamping plates for the small images.

The black polish I stamped with is a homemade mix (housed in a Rimmel bottle).

I really liked this mani. The colour combo is a bit unusual, but I think it really works!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With Pueen 72 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge Q – Quick & Easy

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge (which I am doing for myself). I’m filing this mani under Q – Quick & Easy.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats). This polish is almost a one-coater. Very nice!

Whilst I don’t like this particular shade of green, I think that it’s an excellent base colour for stamping.

I used Pueen’s 72 plate (part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection, one of my favourites), and I stamped with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I really liked this mani. It looked great. But also simple. And effortless. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Beauty UK Cafe Culture & Stamping With Pueen 63

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Beauty UK Café Culture (2 coats). This polish is much older than I care to admit. However, it’s still in great condition!

Since I don’t like this kind of nail colour, I knew I had to stamp. 🙂

So I chose Pueen‘s 63 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection), and I stamped with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

This mani looked much better than I expected – and I got lots of compliments from my co-workers which was great.

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

Nail Of The Day

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani I did last month. For this mani I painted my nails with my home-made white polish.

Well, some time ago I poured all my near-empty white polishes into an empty Rimmel polish bottle – the result was an almost full bottle of white nail polish. 🙂

I opted for a white base because I wanted to finish a near-empty colour polish. And stamping is simply the easiest way to get those hard to reach last drops of polish out of the bottle.

The colour polish I stamped with is Bourjois Sunset A Rio 47. The stamping plate I chose is Pueen‘s 77 plate (part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

The coral polish was paler than expected, so I double-stamped. This seemed to mess up the images, but I was OK with that because I managed to empty the Bourjois polish! Success!
