Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour Boost 04 Instant Love & Rainbow Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour Boost 04 Instant Love (1 coat). This polish is part of a “1 Coat & Go” collection which consists of 10 polishes. I bought them all because I thought they’d make great stamping polishes – and I was right!

But Essence discontinued the entire collection quite soon after the launch. My guess is they realised the polishes were simply too good to be sold for £1.80 a piece.

Anyhoo… for the colourful accents I used a small piece of leftover rainbow foil. I liked the mani a lot, and I can’t wait to do more foil manis soon!

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 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir! & Foils

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today. For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir! (1 coat). I love this dusty purple colour!

Then I applied large chunks of rainbow foil. Initially I wanted a more subtle look, but I couldn’t stop myself, and so I ended up with a very colourful mani.

I liked how this mani turned out. It was very eye-catching, and I got a few compliments from random strangers.

Have you done foil nails before? If yes, how did you like them? If not, why not? What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!
