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 – Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine & Stamping With Pueen 72

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (2 coats).

I love this nail polish. Rimmel’s 60 Seconds formula is fantastic. And I love the milky violet shade very much. It’s just so pretty!

I don’t remember which polish I used as my stamping colour – all I know is that it was, without doubt, a random drugstore nail polish.

I do, however, remember that I used Pueen’s 72 stamping plate. This stamping plate is one of my favourites. It’s part of Pueen’s awesome Stamping Buffet collection.

How do you like this mani? I think it looks really nice. It’s subtle, but not boring. Feel free to comment. 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!
