Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Foils

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

I’ve wanted to do a foil tutorial for ages, and I wanted to use this photo for said tutorial, but I haven’t had the time to put everything together. But I hope to do a proper tutorial next month!

Alright, back to this mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats). I like this black polish!

And whilst this polish looked nice on its own, I wanted more than plain black nails. So I used blue and fuchsia foils to add some colour to my nails. Job done!

I was very happy with how this mani turned out. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Oh, and I’d like to give you an update on the progress I’ve made with my Sleek Au Naturel palette. A little while back I told you that I’m trying to finish this eye palette. If you’d like to read the post, click here. Anyway, I’ve now emptied 5 of the 12 pans, I’ll be emptying 2 more pans soon (pans 3 and 6, top row), and I’m also concentrating on the dark matte shades (pans 3 and 5, bottom row). Not bad, eh? Feel free to let me know what you think! 🙂

And this is it for this week. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rainbow Foils

072015 Foils2Hi there! Today’s post is a short one about the foil mani I did the other day.

I had to do something with my nails but I didn’t have much time as it was quite late already and I knew I’d be waking up with sheet marks the next day if I painted my nails.

So I went for an all-over rainbow mani using leftover bits from foils in all colours.

The foil mani looks a bit patchy and uneven in the photo. However, in real life it was the exact opposite – even and without any visible bald spots.

I’ve done countless foil manis which looked much, much better, but I think this mani looks kind of cute. 🙂 I think I will do another rainbow mani soon.

Nail Of The Day – NYC Expert Last 240 Velvet Rope & Foils

NYC Expert Last Velvet Rope PLUS FoilsHi there! Here’s another quick NOTD post. I broke a nail recently so I filed them all down. They’re really short at the moment, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be colourful.

So here’s what I did. I painted my nails with two coats of NYC Expert Last 240 Velvet Rope. Initially I wanted to do some stamping, but I couldn’t find my white stamping polish.

I found the dark red polish quite boring… so I had to do something with it! I added pink, gold and blue nail foils all over – and voilà, here’s my colourful summer mani. It’s actually quite cute, isn’t it? 🙂
