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 – Beauty UK 76 Jade & Stamping With Pict You Stamping Plates

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Beauty UK 76 Jade (2 coats). This is a great polish in every way. I wish Beauty UK products were still available at Superdrug – I miss their nail polish sets!

Back to this mani… I used 2 of my new stamping plates – Pict You PY-J028 and Pict You PY-J034.

As you can see, I double-stamped. I used a random black Rimmel nail polish (it already got lost in my stash, so I can’t tell you which one it was) and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This means that Nail Week has come to an end. I’ll be back with a regular product review tomorrow.

But let me tell you about this mani! I painted my nails with Barry M Matte Nail Paint Espresso (2 coats). This is a terrible polish. Tip wear and chips within hours. I had to keep filling in the tips…

I applied blobs of white nail polish with a sponge to make the lighter colours pop.

The blue and pink colours I used are from the double-ended Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 300 Pop Art. The glitter top coat I used is Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion.

This isn’t my best galaxy mani, but it’s not the worst either. I did like the mani. But next time I’ll try it without the blue.

Nail Of The Day – Technic Double Trouble Midsummer & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 721

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Technic Double Trouble Midsummer (2 easy coats).

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 721 stamping plate.

I double-stamped! I used a random black polish and my shiny Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette nail art polish.

I really liked this mani! But it was no surprise. This shade of purple (I call it milky purple) is my favourite nail colour. And I love double-stamping!

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 Play Date, Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette, Glitter & Stamping With Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 720

Hi there! Happy Monday. I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Play Date (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats) and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette (the beige one – middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

The subtle gold glitter on the pinkies and ring fingers is Essie As Gold As It Gets.

For the images on the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used a random black nail polish. The stamping plate is Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 720. A quick note in case you’re wondering: Bundle Monster is now Maniology.

I liked this mani. It was a mix of 2 manis which – on their own – would have bored me senseless in less than a day. But I did like the mix!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf & Stamping With MoYou London Mexico 08

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend. 🙂

Today’s post is about a mani I did last month. And for this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf (2 coats).

This is a beautiful bright blue polish. It’s one of my husband’s favourite nail colours on me.

For the images I used MoYou London‘s Mexico 08 plate. I opted for 2 different images, and I think they actually go well together.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto which happens to be the best black nail polish I’ve ever had!

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Boy Bye & Stamping With Nicole Diary

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good week so far! 😊 Let me show you a cute mani I did a little while ago…

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 201 (2 coats). I used this polish as a dusty lavender base underneath Barry M Boy Bye (1 coat). I didn’t want to waste the pretty colour-shifting polish by applying multiple coats.

And I double-stamped. I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 805 Grey Matter for the light grey circles and stars, and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto for the black images. The 2 stamping plates I used are Nicole Diary 062 (ring and index fingers) and 067 (pinkies, middle fingers, thumbs).

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Crush & Stamping With Nicole Diary 089

Hi there! Today’s post is the last post for this week. This also means that Nail Week has come to an end, and I’ll be back with a product review tomorrow. 🙂

But for now, let’s focus on the nails! 👀 For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Crush. This polish is part of Barry M’s Matte Nail Paint collection. I don’t care for matte nail colours, so I used a regular clear top coat for a glossy finish.

The stamping plate I used is Nicole Diary‘s 089 plate which features tropical floral and leafy images.

The polish I stamped with is Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotise.

Hi there! This is another Nail Of The Day post… 😊

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (2 coats). This polish is amazing. It’s almost a one-coater, and the colour is gorgeous.

I used 2 stamping plates – Nicole Diary 062 (ring and index fingers) and Beauty Big Bang 15 (pinkies, middle fingers, thumbs).

The pretty gold polish I stamped with is Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize.

I liked this mani a lot because it had purple, gold and stars. What’s not to like?
