Nail Of The Day – Nail Art Challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And this mani is for challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag.

This challenge is (well, was) one of the few that I thought I might have to skip. However, I remembered that Canada Day is just around the corner. And I also have quite a few Canadian blogging buddies, so I thought I could do Canada nails. 😉

I didn’t have any stamping plates with large maple leaf images, and I couldn’t draw a maple leaf if my life depended on it. So I opted for a stamping image that featured small maple leaves.

Which products did I use? I chose Boots No 7 Devil’s Delight as my red base colour. The white nail polish I used for the accent nail is MUA White Wash. The red stamping colour is Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Red Ruby, and the stamping plate is an unbranded one that’s just called CF-17.

I really like how this mani turned out! One of the maple leaves didn’t stamp perfectly, but all in all I’m happy with this mani.

How do you like this mani? And if you’re Canadian – will you try a Canada Day mani? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 138 & Stamping With Pueen 74

Hi there! Today’s post is about a new version of a mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 138. I don’t like this base colour, but the bottle is almost empty (!), so I’m trying to finish it. However, I might have a backup…

Anyhoo… today I tried to do something new – double stamping. So I stamped 2 layers of colour onto my base colour. I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Revlon Parfumerie Beachy.

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection.

I think the double stamping effect is very subtle – that’s because Beachy is a rather subtle golden shade. However, I’m not disappointed. I think this double-stamped mani turned out quite alright for a first attempt. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin & Foils

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

I’ve wanted to do a foil tutorial for ages, and I wanted to use this photo for said tutorial, but I haven’t had the time to put everything together. But I hope to do a proper tutorial next month!

Alright, back to this mani! I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats). I like this black polish!

And whilst this polish looked nice on its own, I wanted more than plain black nails. So I used blue and fuchsia foils to add some colour to my nails. Job done!

I was very happy with how this mani turned out. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine & Stamping With Pueen 72

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (2 coats).

I love this nail polish. Rimmel’s 60 Seconds formula is fantastic. And I love the milky violet shade very much. It’s just so pretty!

I don’t remember which polish I used as my stamping colour – all I know is that it was, without doubt, a random drugstore nail polish.

I do, however, remember that I used Pueen’s 72 stamping plate. This stamping plate is one of my favourites. It’s part of Pueen’s awesome Stamping Buffet collection.

How do you like this mani? I think it looks really nice. It’s subtle, but not boring. Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – NYC Expert Last 255 Late Night Lilac & Stamping With Pueen 93

Hi there! I’ve got a new mani post for you today. 🙂

I painted my nails with two coats of NYC Expert Last 255 Late Night Lilac. This polish has a weird shimmer, but I’m glad that, thanks to the stamped-on images, said shimmer is invisible. 🙂

I used one of my favourite stamping plates, Pueen’s 93 plate (which is available as part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection).

And I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin to stamp on the images.

I really like this mani (well, I love the base colour and the stamping plate). Do you agree? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Maybelline Forever Strong 795 Cloudy Grey & Stamping With Pueen 53 / Nail Art Challenge #16 Print

upload-4Hi there! Today I’ve got another nail post for you. 🙂

With today’s post I’m continuing “my” 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

However, today’s challenge is the first challenge that I have changed a little. I thought that changing it would be better than skipping it altogether!

The original challenge #16 would have been Tribal Print. However, I dislike tribal print manis just as much as I dislike polka dot manis, so I changed Tribal Print to Print.

And this means… the new challenge is #16 Print! Hey, what’s more print than newspaper print? 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Maybelline Forever Strong 795 Cloudy Grey (1 coat). And I could finally use my Pueen 53 plate (from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection)! The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

How do you like this mani? I think it’s alright. It’s not my favourite mani, but it certainly beats beige nail colours (yawn…) and the likes. 🙂 If you want to comment, please do so. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 085 & Stamping With Pueen 51

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is about a simple mani I did the other day.

I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 085. I like the cool pink shade and the easy to work with and quick-dry formula. However, this Astor polish is a scented polish – and the burned raspberry scent annoyed me quite a bit. Scented polish… who thought this up?

Anyway, let’s get to step 2! I wanted to see if Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go stamped well. So I gave it a try – and it worked out fine! Do you agree?

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the stamping plate… I chose Pueen’s 51 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection) because it’s one of my favourite stamping plates. 🙂

I think this mani turned out quite alright. I like it! What do you think? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!
