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 – Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Rapid Ruby, Revlon Top Speed 330 Emerald, PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Stamping With MoYou Festive 04 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag

Hi there! Since it’s Nail Week, I have another Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with…
Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats, pinkies),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Rapid Ruby (2 coats, ring and middle fingers) and
Revlon Top Speed 330 Emerald (2 coats, index fingers, thumbs).

I used MoYou London‘s Festive 04 plate and Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Rapid Ruby for the images on the pinkies.

So why this mani? Well, the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge has a challenge that’s called INSPIRED BY A FLAG. It’s challenge #28.

I chose the Belarusian flag 🇧🇾 because I’ve been supporting Belarus’ Fed Cup team for years. I’m a major tennis fan, and I hope Belarus wins the semifinal tie against Australia this weekend! Go Aryna, Saschka, Vera und Lida! 💪

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 – Revlon Colorstay 120 Red Carpet, Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust & Water Decals / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #1 Red Nails

Hi there! Happy Monday! This week’s going to be NAIL WEEK, so I’ll be posting about manis only.

I’ve also decided to redo the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I’ve done it before (I’ve completed it in summer 2017), and I want to do it again – but on my own terms. I won’t be doing 31 manis in 31 Days, but over the next couple of months.

I might also skip a few individual challenges and replace them with something else, but I’ll try not to pick and choose too much. 🙂

Alright! For this mani, which is challenge #1 RED NAILS, I painted my nails (pinkies, ring fingers) with Revlon Colorstay 120 Red Carpet (2 coats).

I used water decals on my thumbs, index and middle fingers. I tore one of the decals, and another one ended up looking very wrinkly. So I decided to cover up the mistakes with glitter. I chose Rimmel 60 Seconds 831 Magic Stardust.

I liked this mani, and I am looking forward to using decals more often. Just a few weeks ago I bought around 130 sheets of nail decals, so I better use them! 🙂

1 Red Nails
2 Orange Nails

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight & Stamping With MoYou London Animals 05

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight (2 coats). I love this polish (I love quite a few Revlon Colorstay polishes because they’re awesome).

I used my (relatively new) MoYou London Animals 05 plate – which I bought because it has a number of marine images. I own several stamping plates with marine images, and I’ve done quite a few marine manis over the years – and I know I’ll be doing many more!

The light blue polish I stamped with is Orly Snow Cone. It’s not a stamping polish, but it stamps perfectly. 🙂

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. 🙂
