Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently.
We had a few colleagues from France over at our office. I managed to dress properly (navy-blue suit, red and white striped top), but I couldn’t bring myself to wear plain red nails (yawn).
Since I was already dressed like a sailor, I thought I might as well just do a marine mani using the French national colours. And that’s exactly what I did! 🙂
And I used these products:
red base colour – Revlon 335 Mon Cherry,
blue base colour – Rimmel 231 Blue Eyed Girl,
white base colour – Rimmel 703 White Hot Love,
white stamping colour – Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish White,
blue stamping colour – Filthy Gorgeous Midnight,
red stamping colour – Revlon 335 Mon Cherry.
I chose images from three different stamping plates – Pueen 89 (shells), Pueen 91 (fish and corals), and Pueen 96 (anchors). These three stamping plates are part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection!
I realise this mani looks quite busy – but I really love it! I also got quite a few compliments which was very nice! How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Hi there! I’ve got another nail post for you today. I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And today’s mani is my attempt at challenge #26 Inspired By A Pattern.
The pattern that inspired me to do this mani is the purple butterfly print on one of my scarves.
I’ve used said scarf as backdrop for a few product photos. If you’re interested, you can see the scarf here and here.
Whilst my mani isn’t a copy of the butterfly pattern, I’m happy with it. In addition, the nail challenge wasn’t about copying anything, but to be inspired by something. So I think I did alright! 🙂
For this mani I used the following products:
– Rimmel 60 Seconds 703 White Hot Love (white base, 2 coats),
– Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir, Yes Sir! (stamping colour),
– Pueen‘s 39 stamping plate (from Pueen‘s Love Elements collection),
– JQ-L04 stamping plate,
– Flowers 02 stamping plate
How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch via the comments section. And thank you for reading! 🙂
