Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven, Astor Perfect Stay Velvet Effect 610 Sensual Candle & Stamping With Pueen 81

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Perfect Stay Smooth Velvet Effect 610 Sensual Candle (2 coats, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (2 coats, ring and middle fingers).

The Astor polish is truly unique. It doesn’t really feel like velvet, but it feels sensationally smooth.

I used Pueen‘s 81 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection). I tend to ignore stamping plates with funny shapes, but I’m glad I gave this one a try. I like the image! Oh, and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 370 Uptempo Plum. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio Acid Drop & Stamping With Pueen 74

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 006 Acid Drop (2 coats).

I like this polish! The cucumber shade looks fresh (great for spring and summer manis), and I like the micro-shimmer.

I also think this is a good polish. It dries quickly and it’s perfect in 2 coats – I didn’t expect this because of the light colour, but I’m not complaining. 😉

I stamped with Rimmel Salon Pro 361 Acid House. And the stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection.

I think this mani looks alright. The images on the index and ring fingers didn’t stamp perfectly (it’s the same on my left hand). But all in all, I think this is a nice little mani that’s perfect to welcome spring!

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!

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

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 264 Lincoln Square Lavender (2 coats). I love this colour so much that I’ve already gone through one bottle.

I used Pueen‘s 76 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s awesome Buffet Leisure stamping collection), and I stamped with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

I’m really happy with this mani. Like I said, I love the base colour. And I think the images came out great too!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy & Stamping With Pueen 77 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge L – Love

Hi there! Today’s post is about my Valentine’s Day mani. Quite late, huh?

Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (2 coats).

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

I decided to double-stamp, and I used 2 non-stamping polishes for this – Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold) and NYC In A Minute 230 Penn Station (red).

I think this mani was alright. It was nothing special, but it looked cute. And I really liked the double-stamping effect!

This mani goes in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file it under LLove! 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!
