Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With Nicole Diary ND 076

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 Salon Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats). This polish has grown on me over the years. I used to think it’s a filler polish. But now I love it!

For the images I used my new Nicole Diary ND 076 stamping plate. The 2 polishes I stamped with are Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).

I really loved this mani, and I will redo it shortly – maybe with a light blue, lavender or lilac base.

One more thing of a personal nature – we had another mumps outbreak at work. Yikes! Apparently the initial outbreak happened at a university nearby… Work was crazy with some of us having to cover for other people and other departments. People, if you haven’t had mumps as a child, please get vaccinated. Mumps is serious, and it takes you out for 2 weeks! And if you feel symptoms, please stay at home and don’t spread the virus on the train / bus / work place / sandwich place…

And this is it for this week. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With Pueen 80

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats). This is a great polish. Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of light green nail colours, I like this one a lot because the colour really pops. I’m also happy with the quality of the polish. It dries reasonably quickly and it’s opaque in 2 coats. Thumbs up!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is from Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani a lot, and I will redo it once my nails have grown a bit longer.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With MoYou London Flower Power 08

Hi there! Since this week is Nail Week, I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats).

I haven’t used this polish since last summer, but I just remembered how much I liked it so I dug it up again.

For the images I used my MoYou London Flower Power 08 stamping plate.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I could have done a better job stamping. But I shouldn’t complain because I liked this mani a lot. I will use the polish and the stamping plate again soon!

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 610 Over The Rainblue (1 coat) on my pinkies and ring fingers.

I used Bundle Monster‘s BM 711 stamping plate (from Bundle Monster‘s Secret Garden collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto to stamp floral images onto my thumbs, index and middle fingers.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & China Glaze Fang-Tastic (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Heere’s another Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats).

Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of minty nail colours, I like this one. 🙂

When I did this mani I didn’t want to stamp again, so I decided to use a glitter topper. I opted for China Glaze Fang-Tastic because it looked incredibly pretty in the bottle. However, the mani looked quite odd with the creamy, minty base and the shimmering glitter topper.

I’m sure Fang-Tastic will look amazing over dark base colours, but this mani was another Nail Fail!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint, Accessorize Truffle & Stamping With Pueen 55

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 500 Peppermint (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats) and Accessorize Truffle (middle and ring fingers, 2 coats).

For the images I chose Pueen‘s 55 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Stamping Buffet collection).

The 2 polishes I stamped with are Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go (black) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (gold).

This was another mani that was inspired by boredom, but I think it looked quite nice.
