Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy, Superdrug B. Complete 163 Rainy Day & Stamping With Pueen 72

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy (3 coats, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs) and Superdrug B. Complete 163 Rainy Day (3 coats, ring and middle fingers).

I used 3 different stamping plates – Pueen‘s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection) for the full nail images, and 2 unbranded stamping plates for the small images.

The black polish I stamped with is a homemade mix (housed in a Rimmel bottle).

I really liked this mani. The colour combo is a bit unusual, but I think it really works!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet, Collection 2000 Hot Looks 30 Sherbet Lemons, Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy & Stamping With Pueen 79

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 090 Sorbet. I knew I wanted to stamp, but I found the base colour a little boring, so I decided to add some colour.

I used a small piece of a make-up wedge to sponge yellow and red blobs of colour onto my nails. The 2 colour polishes that I used were Collection 2000 Hot Looks 30 Sherbet Lemons and Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy.

Then I stamped! I used Pueen‘s 79 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection) and a home-made black polish.

I really liked this mani. It doesn’t look super cool when you stare at it from up close, but in real life it looked great.

Have you ever applied nail polish with a make-up wedge or sponge? If so, how did it turn out? And if not, why not?! 😜 Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet ‘N’ Spicy & China Glaze Pure Joy / Mrs Santa Nails

upload-1Hi there! I hope everyone’s still enjoying the holidays. Today is one of my favourite days of the year – Boxing Day! 🙂

Why? Because the big 50% off in-store post-Christmas sale is on! I’ll show you all the stuff I bought – in a few days. Now onto the mani!

I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 322 Sweet’N’ Spicy (one coat). And I topped off my mani with two coats of China Glaze Pure Joy, a limited edition glitter topper from a few years ago.

Pure Joy is a densely packed red and gold glitter topper. But I still wanted a simple red base just so that I could skimp on the glitter topper.

Whilst I have dozens of red polishes, I only have 2 bottles of China Glaze’s Pure Joy. And I want to wear this polish again and again and again. By the way, Pure Joy isn’t just a Mrs Santa glitter polish, it’s also great for Halloween – if you’re going for a non-gory vampy vampire or devil look. 😉

Anyway, I really like my Mrs Santa nails. How do you like this mani? Feel free to let me know if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!
