Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 312 Ultra Violet, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies, Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 889 & Stamping With Pueen 99

Hi there! This post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies (1 coat, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel Salon Pro 312 Ultra Violet (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I used Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 889 to add a touch of glitter to the purple nails.

For the images on the blue(ish) nails I used Pueen‘s 99 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The golden polish I stamped with is the sensational Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Manhattan, Sally Hansen & Primark

Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. I did this galaxy mani a few weeks ago. Here’s how:

I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge and Primark’s PS… Marshmallow polish to sponge white blobs onto my nails. Then I used 2 colour polishes, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies and Manhattan Mode Pilot 01M, to fill in the white blobs. I used a sponge for this too.

There’s no galaxy mani without glitter, so I applied 1 coat of Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova. This is my favourite glitter top coat!

I’ve done better galaxy manis in the past. However, I still think this one looked quite cool. Do you like nail art? Have you tried to do galaxy nails before? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies & Glitter

Rimmel Stormy Skies GlitterHi there! So, after two attempts (Blood Spatter Nails and Bats on a monster slime green background) I’ve already run out of nail ideas for Halloween. So I thought I’d do a happy mani.

I used Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies as my base colour and added lots of colourful matte glitter hexes (white, fuchsia, lime green) for a good mood effect.

I really like Stormy Skies. The colour is a creamy greyish blue / blueish grey and I think it’s a great autumn and winter shade. I also had to apply one coat only, so this polish is just perfect!

The matte glitter looks quite cute, I think. However, I think it would have looked better on an orange or a light yellow background. Well, there’s always a next time.

What do you think? 🙂
