Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid & Double Stamping With Pueen 106

Hi there! Today’s short post is about a cute mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of milky purple is my favourite nail colour. 🥰

For the images I used Pueen‘s beautiful 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

I decided to double-stamp. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) for the images.

I liked this mani a lot – but I used some of my favourite products, so I knew I’d be happy with the result. 😊

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!

My Favourite Manis Of 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite manis of 2018. I stamped like a maniac, I used a lot of glitter, and I did plenty of foil manis. Scroll down if you’d like to know which manis I really liked this year. 🙂

Galaxy Nails
Yellow Nails
Foil Nails

Purple Nails
Halloween Nails
Christmas Nails

Blue Nails
Mixed Nails
Halloween Nails

Foil Nails
Orange Nails
Out Of Space Nails

These were my favourite manis from 2018. I bought more stamping plates, and I have a crazy amount of foils and glitter toppers, so I’m sure 2019 will be a similarly colourful year for nails. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon 097 Plum Seduction & Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 40 Midnight Glitz

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon 097 Plum Seduction (2 coats). This is a gorgeous polish. I love the shade and the formula. Great stuff, Revlon!

The glitter topper I used is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 40 Midnight Glitz (1 coat). This is an insanely gorgeous black and gold holographic glitter mix that looks like Christmas, disco and galaxies. It takes ages to dry, but it looks insanely gorgeous!

I really liked this mani. The base colour is very pretty, and the glitter topper looks cute and pretty. I can’t wait to use these 2 polishes again!

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!
