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).

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria, Glitter & Stamping With Bundle Monster Secret Garden BM 717

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Today’s post is about a mani I did earlier this month.

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used a rainbow glitter top coat to add colour to the grey nails. That cute glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter.

For the images on the blue nails I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 717 stamping plate. I stamped with a random black polish.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria & Stamping With Born Pretty BP-L078

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria. This nail polish is inspired by London’s Victoria line. I think the colour is a pretty good match! Well done, Rimmel!

The stamping plate I used is Born Pretty BP-L078 (yes, again…). And since I still haven’t found my favourite black stamping polish, I used a random black polish – and you can see that the images came out a bit pale.

Anyhoo… I still liked this mani! What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to let me know via the comments!

Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow 019 Sun Safari

Hi there! Today’s post is about a small eyeshadow palette – Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow 019 Sun Safari. As you can see, these are shimmery neutral eyeshadows.

I think this little eyeshadow quad is quite nice. I always do dark outer corners, so I can’t use this quad on its own. However, I like the pale sand shade (bottom) as an inner corner highlight, and the other 3 shades are great on the lids, and they blend very well. I really like the colours – they go very well with my green eyes!

I’ve done and redone the swatches and took dozens of photos each time. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to catch the eyeshadows in all their glory. The pale sand shade (bottom) hardly shows at all because it’s almost the same shade as my pale forearm – that’s if you ignore the shimmer!

But yeah, these eyeshadows are really good. I’ve previously had Rimmel eyeshadows and small compacts, and some of them were disappointing. Because of this, this quad was a nice surprise!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this eyeshadow quad! Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow 019 Sun Safari is available at a number of online outlets. I paid £1 (Poundland).
