Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies & Stamping With Pueen

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies (2 coats). This is a great polish. I love the colour and the formula, and I’m happy with the reasonable drying time.

I knew I wanted golden images on my nails, but I couldn’t find any of my tried and tested gold polishes. So I used the first gold(ish) polish I could find – Revlon Parfumerie Beachy. Unfortunately, this polish doesn’t stamp well at all…

For the images I used my Pueen 111 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate set).

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 138 & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! Today’s post is about a new version of a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 138. I don’t like this base colour, but the bottle is almost empty (!), so I’m trying to finish it. However, I might have a backup…

Anyhoo… today I tried to do something new – double stamping. So I stamped 2 layers of colour onto my base colour. I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Revlon Parfumerie Beachy.

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection.

I think the double stamping effect is very subtle – that’s because Beachy is a rather subtle golden shade. However, I’m not disappointed. I think this double-stamped mani turned out quite alright for a first attempt. 🙂
