Nail Of The Day – Beauty UK White & Stamping With Harunouta L079

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Beauty UK White – one the best white polishes I’ve ever used. Two coats are enough for perfect coverage. I finished this nail polish now, and I’m sad that I can’t replace it.

For the images I used my Harunouta  L079 stamping plate.

The red polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lycra Pro 327 Heart On Fire.

I really like how this mani turned out. I think this would be a great Halloween look. However, I think I’ll do my “usual” mani (bats and blood on a white background) for Halloween.

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipsticks 130 Love Me, 250 Stare At Me, 260 I Want You

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 lipsticks I’ve been wearing on and off for a few weeks – Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipsticks in 130 Love Me, 250 Stare At Me, and 260 I Want You.

First up is Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick 130 Love Me which is a creamy raspberry kind of shade. The lipstick is highly pigmented, and it stays on for hours, but the colour isn’t right for me, so I will let this one go.

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick 250 Stare At Me is my favourite of the 3. It’s a creamy brown-tinted red. It looks like the natural colour of my lips – just 2 shades darker. I love this one, and I will keep it!

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick 260 I Want You should have been a favourite, but this shade of brown is way too dark for me. I’m a pale girl, and a lipstick this dark makes me look ill. I will have to let this one go.

I’m happy that I will keep one of these lippies, but I don’t mind letting the others go. I’m having a major clearout – which will go on for a little while. On a positive note, I’ve already chucked 50+ (overdue) items, and there will be more.

By the way, you can now recycle empty make-up packaging through TerraCycle. If you don’t like a lipstick or an eye palette, just remove the actual product and take the packaging to your nearest participating store (Boots, Superdrug, etc.). TerraCycle will then take care of taking apart your old compacts (or whatever) and recycle the individual components! 😍

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 305 Naughty But Nice, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 540 Glitter Gun, Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 280 Gummy Grape

Hi there! Today’s short post is about a mani I did just a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 280 Gummy Grape (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers). I never really cared for textured nail polish, but this is definitely a nice one.

For the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 305 Naughty But Nice (2 coats). The glitter top coat is Sally Hansen Xreme Wear 540 Glitter Gun (1 coat).

Rimmel did a great job with this bright and pretty red. I don’t like red nail polish in general, but I like this one!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir, Boots No. 7 Hot To Trot, Foils, & Stamping With MoYou London

Hi there! Happy Monday, everyone! Today’s post is about this mani that I did about 2 weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Boots No. 7 Hot To Trot (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers). This is an amazing polish. With most gold, silver and metallic shades, you get visible brushstrokes – but not with this one! 😍 For the images I used my MoYou London Zodiac 01 stamping plate and a black Rimmel polish.

I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir (2 coats). I like this polish a lot. It looks great on its own – but I think it looks even better with those cute rainbow foils. 🌈

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 – Beauty UK 73 Blue Moon & Stamping With Nicole Diary 076

Hi there! I’ve got a short Nail Of The Day post for you.

For this many I painted my nails with Beauty UK 73 Blue Moon (2 coats). This is an amazing polish. The colour is pretty and the formula is easy to work with and quick-drying. 😻

For the images I used my Nicole Diary 076 stamping plate. And I double-stamped. I used a black Rimmel polish as well as Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold).

I liked this mani a lot. I know I’ve done similar manis before, but I can’t get enough of this stamping plate, so I’ll do similar manis in the future.

Rimmel Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm 610 Sun-Kissed

Hi there! Today’s short review is about a lip product I’m using at the moment – Rimmel Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm 610 Sun-Kissed. I bought this one online, and I thought it would be a bit more nude-ish. However, this is essentially a bright coral shade. It’s not the greatest colour for me (redhead with green eyes).

I do like the formula – it’s deeply nourishing, but not slippery. So the colour stays put. I also love the cute candy vanilla flavour. It’s like Tic Tacs without the mint.

So whilst this isn’t the most flattering colour on me, I’m happy to continue to use this lip product. Rimmel Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm 610 Sun-Kissed is available online (but I’ve seen these at Poundland too). I paid 99p.

Nail Of The Day – Beauty UK 76 Jade & Stamping With Pict You Stamping Plates

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Beauty UK 76 Jade (2 coats). This is a great polish in every way. I wish Beauty UK products were still available at Superdrug – I miss their nail polish sets!

Back to this mani… I used 2 of my new stamping plates – Pict You PY-J028 and Pict You PY-J034.

As you can see, I double-stamped. I used a random black Rimmel nail polish (it already got lost in my stash, so I can’t tell you which one it was) and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir & Gold Foils

Hi there! I’ve got a short and sweet Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir (2 coats). This is one of my favourite dark purple polishes. I just love everything about it!

Since gold and purple is one of my favourite colour combos, I used some leftover gold foil to beautify the mani. I think I did well! I really liked this mani!

If you’d like to try foils, I’ve done a pictorial which is very easy to follow, and there are a few tips and tricks. If you’re interested, you can have a look here.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir, Essie Rock At The Top & Stamping With Nicole Diary 076

Hi there! Welcome to Nail Week. I’ll be posting about manis only until Sunday. Without further ado, here’s the first mani.

Alrighty! For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 625 Sir Yes Sir (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

The pretty top coat is Essie Rock At The Top (1 coat).

The light blue base on my thumbs, index and middle fingers is a nameless mini nail polish from Claire’s Accessories (3 coats – 2 would have been fine too).

For the images I used my Nicole Diary 076 stamping plate.

I double-stamped using a grey polish (NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day) and a black polish (some old Rimmel polish).
