Nail Of The Day – Feat. Rimmel, Revlon & Pict You (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. It’s also a Nail Fail!

For this mani I painted my nails with the white Revlon polish that’s part of Revlon’s double-ended neon polishes. The white polish is chalky and streaky. You can see it in the photo even though I used plenty of top coat.

I double-stamped – and the results weren’t great either. The polishes I used are Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette. The stamping plate is Pict You PY-J034.

Ah well… better manis will follow soon!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria, Glitter & Stamping With Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 717

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Today’s post is about a mani I did earlier this month.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used a rainbow glitter top coat to add colour to the grey nails. That cute glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter.

For the images on the blue nails I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 717 stamping plate. I stamped with a random black polish.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria & Stamping With Born Pretty BP-L078

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did last week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria. This nail polish is inspired by London’s Victoria line. I think the colour is a pretty good match! Well done, Rimmel!

The stamping plate I used is Born Pretty BP-L078 (yes, again…). And since I still haven’t found my favourite black stamping polish, I used a random black polish – and you can see that the images came out a bit pale.

Anyhoo… I still liked this mani! What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to let me know via the comments!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria, Orly Liquid Vinyl & Stamping With Pueen 55 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge I – Inspired By A Colour

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a while back. I really liked this mani, so I’m not sure why I left it for so long…

Anyway, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria (ring fingers), and Orly Liquid Vinyl (middle fingers).

I used Orly Snow Cone (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Orly Liquid Vinyl (ring fingers) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 310 Gilty Pleasure (middle fingers) as my stamping colours.

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 55 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

This mani is my interpretation of the Inspired By A Colour challenge which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. The colour in question is, obviously, blue. 🙂

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Blue Gradient Nails Feat. Ciaté, Rimmel & NYC / A-Z Nail Art Challenge B-Blue

Hi there! It’s Nail Week and, obviously, I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

I did a pink-to-red gradient mani a couple of months ago, so I thought I might as well try a blue gradient mani. 🙂

I used the following nail products:
Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 704 Sweet As Sugar (pinkies),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (ring fingers),
NYC In A Minute 296 Water Street Blue (middle fingers),
Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (index fingers and thumbs),
Ciaté Party Shoes (glitter topper).

I really liked the mani. The colours I chose weren’t perfect, but I was still happy with this mani. Do you agree? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Essence The Gel Nail Polish 33 Wild White Days, B. Complete 154 Brit, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

072016 Underwater ManiHi there! This is another mani I did recently. I painted my nails with Essence The Gel Nail Polish 33 Wild White Days (pinky), Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria (ring and middle fingers), and B. Complete 154 Brit (index finger, thumb).

I didn’t know what to do with the white & blue mani – I didn’t feel inspired at all. So in the end I opted for an underwater mani.

I used Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish in White (ring and index finger, thumb) and Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (pinky, middle finger) to stamp on images from Moyou London’s Doodles 07 plate.

Unfortunately I smudged the image on my pinky. Not sure how it happened. But all in all I like this mani. In regards to the polishes I used, I found the Rimmel polish to be amazing. The formula was perfect and it applied like a charm. Brilliant!

The B. polish wasn’t great. It took ages to dry and I had to apply three coats. The B. polish was also prone to chipping, so within 24 hours I had to ‘fix’ all the nails I painted with this polish. Not great. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the B. polish didn’t stain at all when I removed it. The white Essence polish is alright. It really is opaque in two coats. But it takes a while to dry and the formula is on the goopy side.

Feel free to comment if you wish. And thanks for reading!

If you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link. In case you’re wondering… yes, I did purchase this stamping plate myself!
