Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 220 Sage All The Rage & Rainbow Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 220 Sage All The Rage (2 coats).

I’m not a fan of nothing colours like this one, but I’ve know for a while that these nothing colours are usually great background colours for stamping and other nail art.

So I decided to use some leftover rainbow foil for colourful accents – and this worked out brilliantly.

I liked this mani a lot = and that’s because of the rainbow foils. Yes, the photos isn’t the greatest, but the mani looked very cute in real life!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight & Rainbow Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with 2 coats of Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight. This polish is gorgeous. I love everything about it – the colour, the formula, the finished look…

I decided to do a foil mani. I used some leftover rainbow foil, and I was super happy with the result.

Unfortunately, the photos didn’t do the mani justice. It’s difficult to take photos of foil manis this time of year. Natural light is already scarce, and this photo shows why it’s next to impossible to capture a foil mani in artificial light…

Anyhoo… onto the next mani! And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight & Foils

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did just last month. It’s not the most spectacular mani, and I’ve noticed that the middle finger looks weird in the photo (like there’s a dent in the nail), but it’s too late to take new photos now…

OK, for this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight (1 coat). I like this polish a lot. The colour is gorgeous!

For the colourful effect I used rainbow foils. If you’re wondering how do to foil nails, check out this pictorial. Foil nails are incredibly easy to do!

As I said earlier, this mani was rather unspectacular. I didn’t love it. But it was alright for a few days.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 712 Rhythm & Blue AND Foils

Hi there! I have another short Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 712 Rhythm & Blues (2 coats). This is an almost-black shade with a creamy finish. It’s beautiful!

I used rainbow foils for the accents – yellow / gold, red, pink, green and blue – it’s all there. 😍

Whilst I did like this mani, it was nothing special. I’ve done better foil manis. I’ve also taken better photos of manis, but for some reason it was impossible to get the perfect photo of this mani. Ah well, onto the next mani…

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 803 Man Overboard & Foils / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #9 Rainbow Nails

Hi there! This is another mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing again – on my own terms). This is for challenge #9 RAINBOW NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 803 Man Overboard (2 coats). This is a decent grey polish. In the bottle it looks like a medium grey, but it’s actually more of a medium to dark grey. This isn’t terrible, but I was trying to go for a “grey sky” look which would have looked better with a lighter shade of grey. Ah well…

For the rainbow effects I used colourful foils. If you’d like to try foil nails the easy way, check out this easy to follow tutorial.
