Nail Of The Day – Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! Today’s nail of the day post is about a mani I did a little while ago. I didn’t love the mani, so I wasn’t sure whether to do a post or not… well, here we are!

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Colour & Go 171 Galactic Glam (2 coats). I don’t like this polish. The colour is a mix of blue, green and gold and it has a metallic (almost foil) finish. It’s a mess.

Then I thought that double-stamping might save the mani. (It didn’t work!) I used Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Revlon Briliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold) to stamp images onto my nails. The stamping plate I used is MoYou‘s super cute Doodles 07 plate.

I really didn’t like this mani. Quite a few ladies at work told me how much they loved this particular mani (?). However, it’s definitely one of my least favourite manis of 2017.

How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch. By the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine, PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow, Essence Come To Town Lametta Topper & Stamping With Pueen 44

Hi there! It’s after Christmas, but… here’s another Christmas Nail Idea. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (middle fingers), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (ring fingers).

I used Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper to add a little sparkle to the white base. And I used Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize to stamp golden stars onto the green base.

I like this mani. It’s christmassey, but it’s not over the top. I also like the individual look of the mani – it’s not one of those standard manis that everyone (myself included) does again and again, year after year… How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Sinful Colors Blue La La & Stamping With Sugar Bubbles SB 031, Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize, Filthy Gorgeous Midnight / A-Z Nail Art Challenge S – Summer

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani that I did recently. A mani that I’m quite proud of! And with this mani I’ve also completed the A-Z Nail Art Summer Challenge. Yeah!

OK, so for this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats).

The stamping plate I chose is Sugar Bubbles SB 031. This stamping plate bursts with summery images. It’s the ultimate ‘day at the beach’ stamping plate.

The 2 stamping colours I used are Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (dark blue) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).

I love how this mani turned out. I love it! Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Pueen, Rimmel, Revlon, W7, Orly & Filthy Gorgeous / Nail Art Challenge #21 Inspired By A Colour

Pueen 72Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. And this mani is another one that counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

So today’s mani is my entry for challenge #21 Inspired By A Colour. Obviously, this colour is blue. 🙂

I painted my thumb, middle finger and pinky with Rimmel 60 Seconds 231 Blue Eyed Girl (2 coats).

And I painted my index and ring fingers with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry (2 coats).

Then I applied one coat of W7 96 Mosaic to my accent nail (ring finger).

The images I stamped on are from Pueen’s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

And I used the following nail polishes to stamp on the images:
Orly Snowcone (pinky and thumb),
Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (middle finger),
Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (index finger)

I think this mani turned out great. I like the colours that I picked, I love the glitter accent, and I think the images are almost perfect. Do you agree? Feel free to tell me what you think. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 330 Red Obsession & Stamping With Pueen 73

062016 Rimmel Red Obsession Revlon Hypnotize Pueen 73Hi there! I’ve got another mani for you today. If you think it looks a little christmassey, I agree. I didn’t aim for a christmassey look, but I guess that’s what you get when you combine red and gold. 🙂

I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 330 Red Obsession (two coats). The red turned out darker than expected, so I didn’t want to stamp with black polish.

I was going through my ‘regular polishes that stamp well’ stash and I picked Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (which I picked up at Poundworld!).

I chose Pueen’s 73 plate (from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet) and then I started to stamp. 🙂

If I ignore the christmassey feel of the mani, I’m happy with how it turned out. The red Rimmel polish looks lovely and the Revlon polish stamps perfectly. Well done, Revlon. More polishes like this one, please!

Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for reading!
