Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 444 Seduce & Gold Foils

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

I want to do christmassey manis this month, but I also want to do things slightly differently, so why not try purple and gold?

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 444 Seduce (2 coats). This is a beautiful purple polish that goes with (almost) everything.

I used some leftover gold foil for the accents, and I think it worked out brilliantly! I liked this mani a lot!

If you’ve never done foil nails but would like to give it a try, please check out my super easy to follow pictorial with tips and tricks!

Nail Of The Day – Foils & Stamping Feat. Rimmel, Revlon, MoYou London, etc.

Hi there! A few weeks ago I did a colourful mani. I had no idea what I was going for, but I did like the result!

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir (middle and ring fingers, thumbs, 2 coats) before I applied leftover gold foil.

For the other nails I made decals! I used my unbranded stamping mat, MoYou London‘s cute Flower Power 16 plate and a number of colour polishes:

Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black), Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White, Rimmel Salon Pro 500 Peppermint, NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple, and a nameless Beauty UK polish in a maroon colour.

As I said earlier, I liked this mani a lot. I will be doing something similar in the not too distant future! Alrighty, this post is the last one for this week. This means that Nail Week has come to an end. I’m back tomorrow with a product review! Thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria & Gold Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria (2 coats).

This is a wonderful polish. I love everything about it – the colour, the formula, the flat brush. Great stuff, Revlon!

I thought that gold foils would look great with the purple base, so I applied small pieces of foil to my nails. Then I applied one coat of clear polish – and that was already it!

I really like this mani because purple and gold always look great together. I also like that no two nails looked the same.

Nail Of The Day – Beauty UK Purple & Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with a purple Beauty UK polish (2 coats) that came in a nail polish gift set. I think this purple polish is fantastic (formula, brush, application, opacity, drying time) – but it’s too bad it doesn’t have a name!

Initially I wanted to stamp. However, I decided to do a foil mani.

I used a random gold foil and some leftover fuchsia foil to make my mani stand out – and it worked!

I got lots of compliments – one of my co-workers said she loved the drama in this mani! Pretty cool, eh? 🙂

Yes, I was really happy with this mani! How do you like it? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (creamy purple base colour),
Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria (dark purple base colour),
Sally Hansen Salon Manicure 310 Gilty Pleasure (golden base colour),
Orly Hair Band (gold glitter top coat),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go (black stamping colour),
Pueen 76 stamping plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

I know I already said it, but I want to say it again… I think this mani looks great. And I’m happy to have completed the A-Z Purple Nail Art Challenge. 🙂 Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 67N & Barry M Treasure Chest

upload-1Hi there! Today’s nail post is about another mani I did some time ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 67N. I love the purple colour! If only Manhattan had given this polish a cooler name than “67N”… Ah well, it is what it is. 😉

The gold glitter topper is Barry M’s Treasure Chest which is part of Barry M’s Aquarium collection. I think this glitter topper is no longer available, but I’m sure there are other gold flakie toppers out there.

I didn’t like this mani as much as I hoped I would. I usually love gold and purple, but I think I applied too much glitter this time.

What do you think? Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!
