Nail Of The Day – Models Own Diamond Luxe Pear Purple & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! This week’s going to be NAIL WEEK. Today’s post is about a mani I did a few months ago. πŸ™‚

For this mani I painted my nails with Models Own Diamond Luxe Pear Purple (2 coats). This is a beautiful polish. It’s purple (which my favourite nail colour), and it’s bursting with micro-shimmer. I love it!

Whilst the plain purple nails looked great on their own, I decided to stamp. I used Pueen‘s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection).

I don’t remember which nail polish I stamped with, but it was a regular (and random) non-stamping polish. πŸ™‚

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I β™₯ 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 β™₯ 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. πŸ™‚

Nail Of The Day – Sinful Colors Silhouette & Stamping With Flowers 01

Hi there! A few months ago I picked up a couple of Sinful Colors nail polishes. I wanted to swatch all the polishes right away, but I didn’t!

But now I finally managed to try the cute lavender shade!

So… for this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Silhouette (2 coats). I really like this polish. It dries quickly, and it’s opaque in 2 easy coats.

The purple polish I stamped with is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 370 Uptempo Plum.

The stamping plate I used is called Flowers 01. It’s one of those unbranded cheap plates that I bought online (ages ago).

I think this mani turned out alright. It’s not the most inspired mani, but I do like it!

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? πŸ™‚

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

A-Z Nail Art Challenge

Hi there! I’ve just completed the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. Whilst I feel quite proud of myself, I’ve already looked up new nail art challenges. I found all sorts of different challenges, and some of them are rather demanding. So I opted for a challenge that I think I should be able to complete – the A-Z Nail Art Challenge!

The beauty of this challenge is that you can make up your own challenge. All you have to do is take 2 minutes out of your life to think up different challenges – one for every letter in the alphabet. Here’s what I’ve come up with:

Animals
Blue
Coral
Diva
Exotic
Fuzzy Topper
Galaxies
Holo
Inspired By A Colour
Joy To The World
Kitties
Love
Movie
Nocturnal Creatures
Out Of Space
Purple
Quick & Easy
Red
Summer
TV
Underwater
Vibrant
Whatever I Want
X-Plain To Me Why You’re Doing Red Nails Again…
Yellow
Zebra
ENCORE – Recreate A Favourite

I’ll be completing the A-Z Nail Art Challenge over the next few months. I don’t know how long it’ll take, but the one thing I know is that I won’t be doing the manis in alphabetical order. Oh, and I might change the individual challenges if I have a better idea. I already changed “Green” to “Galaxies”! πŸ™‚

I won’t be using any photos of manis I’ve already done. I’ll be doing new manis, but I might recycle my own ideas. πŸ™‚ In case you’re wondering about the photos in this post… well, they’re here because I didn’t want to do a text-only post. And since I already had these photos in my media library, I thought I might as well just recycle them for this post. But again, the manis I’ll be doing for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge will be new manis.

What do you think of this Nail Art Challenge? Is this something you can see yourself doing? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚
