Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry & Stamping With Pueen 72 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #5 Blue Nails

Hi there! I did another mani for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing again – on my own terms).

This mani is for challenge #5 BLUE NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry (2 coats). I love this polish. It’s perfect. I’ve been using it a lot lately!

I thought I’d do an easy floral mani, so I used one of my favourite stamping plates – Pueen‘s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I was pleased with how this mani turned out. I need to use this beautiful stamping plate more often!

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Goose, Rimmel 60 Seconds 507 Round And Round In Circles & Stamping With Pueen 61 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #3 Yellow Nails

Hi there! This is another mani that I’m doing for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge (which I’m doing for the 2nd time and on my own terms). This is mani is for challenge #3 YELLOW NAILS.

For this easy mani I painted my pinkies and ring fingers with 4 (!) coats of Models Own Goose.

I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with 2 coats of white polish, and then 2 coats of Rimmel 60 Seconds 507 Round And Round In Circles.

I used Pueen‘s 61 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn, Sleek Nailed By Sleek Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida & Stamping / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #2 Orange Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about the second mani I did for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge – it’s challenge #2 ORANGE NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (3 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and with Sleek‘s Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida (2 coats over a white base, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I needed a white base because Sleek’s orange polish isn’t of great quality. It’s incredibly thin, and I doubt that even 4 coats would have been enough. I also found that this polish took ages to dry. Yikes! It’s obvious why Sleek discontinued this nail polish collection!

The stamping plate I used is the my trusted unbranded Flowers 02 plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani – especially the textured polish. I didn’t like textured polishes when they were the rage a few years ago, but I do like them now! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! Today’s post is not only the last post this week, but it’s also the last post this Nail Week.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (2 coats). This is a pretty peachy-pink shade with microshimmer galore. It’s not my favourite nail colour, but it looks amazing in the sun!

I thought that a few simple rosey images would look nice with this base colour, so I chose Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection).

The black polish I stamped with is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Fearne Lola Lavender & Stamping With Pueen 73

Hi there! I have another Nail Of The Day post for you today. This mani is from last summer, but I hated the photos I took (it was too sunny), so I never bothered to crop and resize them – until now. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Fearne Lola Lavender (2 coats). This is a gorgeous colour. I love it!

I decided to double-stamp. I used my Pueen 73 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) and two colour polishes – Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).

In theory, this should have been an awesome mani, but it was just about OK.

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy, Orly Hair Band, Water Decals & Stamping With Pueen 103

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 002 Cotton Candy (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers).

This is an OK nail polish. I decided to use it for this mani because the bottle is more than half-empty, and I’m thinking I might actually finish this polish!

I used Pueen‘s 103 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto for the images.

I used floral water decals for my ring fingers and pinkies, and I painted 1 coat of Orly Hair Band over them.

I didn’t love the mani, but I did like it. This was a nicer than expected filler mani. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Stamping With Pueen 93

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

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple.

This kind of light purple is my favourite nail colour, and this particular polish is very nice. It doesn’t dry in a minute, but it dries reasonably quickly. Great stuff, NYC!

The stamping plate I used is Pueen‘s 93 plate which is part of Pueen‘s gorgeous Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection.

The black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto. I’ve already gone through one bottle, and I think I’m already halfway through bottle number 2!
