Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did not too long ago. I thought I’d share this summery mani before we have to say goodbye to the summer of ’19.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion (2 coats). I like this polish a lot because the colour is simply gorgeous, and I like Rimmel’s Lycra Pro formula in general.

For the images I used my unbranded FLOWERS 02 stamping plate. I don’t remember which polish I stamped with. I just picked the first black polish I could find because I had trouble locating my black Revlon polish that day. Typical, I know! 🤣

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-S161

Rimmel Cocktail Passion Bundle Monster BM S161Hi there! This is another quick post about a mani I did recently. It’s nothing flashy – just basic stamping.

I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion (two coats). I don’t love orange and coral nail polishes, but I really like this particular shade. It’s fresh and bright and the name Cocktail Passion fits perfectly!

I didn’t want to do another floral mani, so I went through my Bundle Monster Fuzzy And Ferocious stamping plate set. I opted for an animal stripe design I found on the BM-S161 plate. The black polish I used to stamp on the image is my beloved Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I think this mani turned out alright. Like I said, it’s nothing too flashy – and it was quick and easy to do. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for reading! I appreciate it!

Nail Of The Day – Colourful Nails & Stamping With Pueen 63

Pueen 63Hi there! Today’s post concludes nail week. I hope you like that I saved the best for last. 🙂

I never really knew what to do with Pueen’s 63 plate from their Stamping Buffet collection. I thought I’d just paint all my nails in a different colour and give this stamping plate a try.

I used: Boots 17 Pretty In Peach (pinky), Rimmel Salon Pro 500 Peppermint (ring), Astor Fashion Studio 137 (middle), NYC In A Minute 264 Lincoln Square Lavender (index).

If you wonder about the thumbs – I used Orly Snow Cone (light blue). Too bad I didn’t capture that one! And the black ‘stamping polish’ is Revlon Colorstay Stiletto.

I love how this mani turned out! I love the colours and the different images – and now I think Pueen’s 63 plate is a total gem! Feel free to let me know what you think. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion & Stamping With Pueen 51

Rimmel Cocktail Passion plus stampingHi there! I haven’t done a nail post in a while. A few weeks ago I broke two nails (one on each hand), and then I made the mistake of trying out false nail tips (Never again!) which made it even worse.

So I’ve been patient, and now I’m happy to show you this cute mani from last week. I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 313 Cocktail Passion, a bright and gorgeous orangey-pinkish coral shade.

I then stamped on a floral image – with the help of my trusted favourite black polish – Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

The floral image is from Pueen’s 51 plate. This plate is available as part of Pueen’s beautiful Stamping Buffet collection.

I really liked this mani. I love the Rimmel polish and Pueen’s 51 plate is just so pretty! 🙂 Feel free to comment and thanks for stopping by.
