Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn, Sleek Nailed By Sleek Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida & Stamping / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #2 Orange Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is about the second mani I did for the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge – it’s challenge #2 ORANGE NAILS.

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 260 Candy Corn (3 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and with Sleek‘s Quick Drying Polish 22 Florida (2 coats over a white base, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I needed a white base because Sleek’s orange polish isn’t of great quality. It’s incredibly thin, and I doubt that even 4 coats would have been enough. I also found that this polish took ages to dry. Yikes! It’s obvious why Sleek discontinued this nail polish collection!

The stamping plate I used is the my trusted unbranded Flowers 02 plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani – especially the textured polish. I didn’t like textured polishes when they were the rage a few years ago, but I do like them now! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 416 Night Flight & Stamping With Pueen 76

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 416 Night Flight (2 coats). I love everything about this polish – the colour is gorgeous, the polish dries reasonably quickly, and it doesn’t stain. Great stuff!

I went for a quick and easy to do mani. For the images I used Pueen‘s 76 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pewter.

I really liked this mani. The two colours look great together, and the images transferred very well.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid, Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 600 Sour Apple + 210 Royal Icing & Stamping With Pueen 114

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

For the images I used Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day collection), Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

On my ring fingers and pinkies I used Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 600 Sour Apple (pale green, 2 coats) and Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 210 Royal Icing (sheer turquoise with pink shimmer, 1 coat as a top coat). 🙂

I liked this mani a lot. I’ve rediscovered textured polishes, and I love purple nails with black and gold accents. And this mani has both! What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Revlon & More

Hi there! A few weeks ago I did a galaxy mani. It wasn’t my favourite galaxy mani, but I have to say that I still liked how it turned out.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply blobs of Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White to my nails.

I used a few colour polishes (and more small make-up sponge pieces) for the accents: Collection 2000 Hot Looks 30 Sherbet Lemons (yellow), Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon (pale turquoise), and NYC In A Minute 258 Prospect Park Pink (pink).

The beautiful glitter top coat is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova – which happens to be my all-time favourite glitter top coat!

Do you like galaxy nails? Have you tried to do galaxy nails? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat 400 Sweetie (pinkies and ring fingers, 3 coats, but 2 coats would have been fine too) and Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

For the images I used Pueen‘s 109 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and MoYou London‘s Orchid Chic stamping polish.

I liked this mani very much. I love the colours purple and yellow, so I was happy that this mani worked out. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – L’Oréal Collection Exclusive by Liya – Liya’s Pure Red & Stamping With Pueen 106

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

For this mani I painted my nails with L’Oréal Collection Exclusive by Liya – Liya’s Pure Red (2 coats).

I decided to stamp, and I used Pueen‘s 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s cute Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The gold polish I stamped with is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

I liked this mani very much. The base colour is gorgeous. The images are very pretty (Pueen’s 106 plate is becoming a favourite…), and the dark red and gold colour combo turned out even better than expected. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 860 Bestival Blue, NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-719

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a long time ago. I think this one’s from last summer! Oops!

Ayhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 860 Bestival Blue (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and NYC Expert Last 205 Boundless Berry (2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

I wanted glitter, but I also wanted to stamp so… the pretty glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 833 Vintage Confetti.

I used Bundle Monster‘s BM-719 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster‘s amazing Secret Garden stamping plate collection).

I didn’t like this mani very much. It’s not a complete fail, but I expected it to look much better. Ah well…
