Nail Of The Day – MUA White Wash, Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Boy You’re So Fine, Orly Basket Case & Nails Inc. Bow Street (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I wanted to do for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. However, the mani didn’t really ‘work’.

For this mani I painted my nails with MUA White Wash (white base), Orly Basket Case (pink base) and Rimmel 60 Seconds 622 Oh Boy You’re So Fine (milky purple).

The glitter topper is Nails Inc. Bow Street.

I also did some stamping, and I used my QA 88 stamping plate, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 370 Uptempo Plum, and Essence’s White Stamping Polish (which, unfortunately, has been discontinued).

I think this mani is not very special, and it’s definitely not one of my favourites. It was just about OK for a weekend. Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Barry M Bubblegum, MUA Whitewash & Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf / A-Z Nail Art Challenge F – Fuzzy Topper

Hi there! Today’s post is about the first mani I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This challenge is called Fuzzy Topper. Cute, eh?

I have quite a few ‘fuzzy toppers’. But, unfortunately, I rarely use them. So this challenge provides the perfect opportunity to sport one of those fuzzy toppers!

And these are the nail polishes that I used:
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (base colour, pinkies, index fingers, thumbs),
Barry M Bubblegum (fuzzy topper),
MUA Whitewash (base colour, ring fingers),
Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf (base colour, middle fingers).

I also stamped! I chose an ornamental floral image for my middle and ring fingers. The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 74 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab.

How do you like this mani? I think it looks quite nice. And I think I did a good job with these 3 colours! Feel free to comment if you want to. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Color Club Blossoming, Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go, NYC 019 Perfect Day & Stamping With Pueen 73 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge W – Whatever I Want

Hi there! Today’s mani is another one I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This challenge is called “W – Whatever I Want”. It’s my ‘joker’ challenge. 🙂

Onto the mani! I used these nail (art) products:
Color Club Blossoming (base colour pinkies, index fingers, thumbs),
Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go (base colour ring fingers, black stamping colour),
NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (base colour middle fingers),
Sally Hansen Salon Manicure 310 Gilty Pleasure (golden stamping colour),
Pueen 73 stamping plate (from Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

I think this mani looks awesome. I love it! And I’m actually proud of it because I had no idea what to do with my nails, so I just grabbed a few random nail polishes and I started to paint my nails… and all of a sudden my nails looked great. 😀

How do you like this mani? Feel free to let me know via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

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!
