Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue, NYC In A Minute 260 Pop Heart, Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova & Stamping With Pueen 119

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

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 260 Pop Heart (pinkies, ring fingers, 2 coats) and Rimmel Rita Ora 860 Bestival Blue (middle and index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

I decided to give the pink nails a bit of sparkle, so I applied 1 coat of the marvellous Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

For the images on the blue nails I used Pueen‘s 119 stamping plate (which belongs to Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

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!

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did quite some time ago. Oops! 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats). Whilst the name of the polish implies that it’s a quick-dry polish, it’s not. However, the sensationally beautiful shade of purple makes up for the longer drying time.

This shade of purple (I like to call it milky purple) is my favourite nail colour. And this time I wanted to wear it with my favourite glitter topper – Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova (1 coat). By the way, this glitter topper dries in no time! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Manhattan, Sally Hansen & Primark

Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. I did this galaxy mani a few weeks ago. Here’s how:

I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge and Primark’s PS… Marshmallow polish to sponge white blobs onto my nails. Then I used 2 colour polishes, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies and Manhattan Mode Pilot 01M, to fill in the white blobs. I used a sponge for this too.

There’s no galaxy mani without glitter, so I applied 1 coat of Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova. This is my favourite glitter top coat!

I’ve done better galaxy manis in the past. However, I still think this one looked quite cool. Do you like nail art? Have you tried to do galaxy nails before? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Max Factor, Primark & Essence

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

Alrighty, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds Hot Black To Go (2 coats, but 1 would have been enough).

Then I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply white blobs (Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow) to my nails.

I repeated the process with 2 random colour polishes – Essence Colour & Go 06 Instant Happiness and Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink.

The glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova which is not just my favourite glitter top coat, but most likely also the most beautiful and the most versatile glitter top coat in the history of the planet.

I really liked this mani. It was inspited by boredom, but it turned out to be quite cool. Have you tried galaxy nails? If not, why not? Would you like to try galaxy nails? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf, Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova & Stamping With Pueen 81

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Colorstay 170 Coastal Surf (middle and ring fingers, 2 coats) and Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs, 2 coats).

The glitter polish I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova.

I also used Pueen‘s 81 stamping plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure collection). The dark blue polish I stamped with is Filthy Gorgeous Midnight.

I think this mani was quite alright. For some reason I couldn’t make the glitter pop in the photos, but in real life it looked cute and sparkly!
