Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of purple is my favourite nail colour. 😍

The glitter polish I used is Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion. This is a mix of gold, fuchsia and blue micro glitter in a clear base. I love this kind of glitter!

I like the look of this mani. However, my nails look awful. I cleaned 2 places like a maniac when we moved house, and this took quite a toll on my nails. Rubber gloves couldn’t prevent splits and breakages, although I guess they prevented the worst!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid & Double Stamping With Pueen 106

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of milky purple is my favourite nail colour. 🥰

For the images I used Pueen‘s beautiful 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

I decided to double-stamp. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) for the images.

I liked this mani a lot – but I used some of my favourite products, so I knew I’d be happy with the result. 😊

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel & Miss Sporty / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #19 Galaxies

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week, and this means that Nail Week has come to an end.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

I used small pieces of a make-up sponge to apply blobs of colourful polish to my nails. I started with white blobs over which I applied the following polishes:

Rimmel Lycra Pro 295 Fancy Fushia (pink),
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (lilac),
Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (light blue).

The cute glitter top coat I used is Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch 888.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid, Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry & Stamping With Biutee 10

Hi there! Today’s post is about the first mani I did using my new Biutee stamping plate set.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

For the images I used my Biutee 10 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

Whilst the mani didn’t look half as cool as I had hoped, I’m looking forward to using this stamping plate again. It won’t be long!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid, Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 600 Sour Apple + 210 Royal Icing & Stamping With Pueen 114

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

For the images I used Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day collection), Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

On my ring fingers and pinkies I used Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 600 Sour Apple (pale green, 2 coats) and Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 210 Royal Icing (sheer turquoise with pink shimmer, 1 coat as a top coat). 🙂

I liked this mani a lot. I’ve rediscovered textured polishes, and I love purple nails with black and gold accents. And this mani has both! What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Pueen 114

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of milky purple (aka bubble tea purple) is my favourite nail colour. Whenever I see a milky purple polish, I buy it!

Back to the mani! I decided to stamp. Double-stamp, to be precise. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) as my stamping polishes.

The images are from Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping collection).

I really liked this mani. I’ve done a very similar mani before, so I knew what I could expect from this mani. Do you like nail stamping? If so, let me know. And if not, why not? What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!
