Nail Of The Day – Revlon Matte Suede 863 Ruby Ribbon & Gold Foils

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Matte Suede 863 Ruby Ribbon (2 coats). This is one of my oldest unloved polishes. 😄 When I bought it, I had no idea what matte suede even meant in terms of nail polish.

When I used this polish for the first time, I was disappointed because it dried down to a matte and streaky mess. It was incredibly ugly.

Now back to today’s mani! I used gold foil to give the plain burgundy shade some sparkle. And 1 coat of clear polish added extra shine. I liked this mani – and I will do more foil manis over the next few weeks.

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Nail Art Neon 140 Pink Glow & Gold Foil

Hi there! Since this week is Nail Week, I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Nail Art Neon 140 Pink Glow – 2 coats of the white polish and 3 coats of the coral polish.

Wait, what? 5 coats of polish? Yes! The white polish was very streaky, and the coral polish was super thin. Awful!

Once dry, the coral polish felt and looked strangely chalky. Yikes! So how could I save the mani? With gold foil – wedged between 2 coats of clear polish!

I did like the look of the mani, and I wore it for 4 days because of the time (drying time) and effort (8 coats of polish) I spent on it.

What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Dangerous Affair & Foils

Hi there! Here’s another mani post. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Dangerous Affair (4 coats). This is another low quality polish from Ciaté. I don’t know why I keep buying the Ciaté Mini Mani Month Calendars…

If you like the dark red colour, try Rimmel Salon Pro 391 Celebrity Bash, or Essence Colour Boost 09 Instant Passion which is opaque in 1 coat!

Back to this mani… Even after 4 coats Ciaté’s Dangerous Affair looked pretty ugly (you really need a top coat with this polish), so I decided to beautify the mani with the help of golf foil. Tadaaa! Mani saved! 🙂

Do you like foil manis? Which colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
