Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid & Double Stamping With Pueen 106

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of milky purple is my favourite nail colour. 🥰

For the images I used Pueen‘s beautiful 106 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

I decided to double-stamp. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) for the images.

I liked this mani a lot – but I used some of my favourite products, so I knew I’d be happy with the result. 😊

Nail Of The Day – Essence Vintage District 04 Get Arty & Stamping With Pueen 107

Hi there! Here’s another mani that I did a little while ago. This is also one that I consider to be a Nail Fail.

Alright… for this mani I painted my nails with Essence Vintage District 04 Get Arty (3 coats). In the bottle, this is one of the most amazing polishes I’ve ever seen. It’s a colour-shifting grey with plenty of yellow-to-orange-to-red shimmer. Like burning lava. Gorgeous!

However, once the polish is on your nails, it’s nothing but an uninspired khaki. A major disappointment!

Then I stamped – I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms and Pueen‘s 107 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 340 Cinna-Snap & Foils

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

I haven’t done a foil mani in quite some time, so I thought it’s definitely time for one!

So for this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 340 Cinna Snap (2 coats). This is supposed to be a quick-dry polish, but it took ages to dry. Terrible!

I used colourful foils for the accents, and I’m happy with how this mani turned out. Each nail looked truly unique!

If you’ve never done a foil mani but would like to know how to do one, I’ve done a tutorial which you can find here. Supplies are cheap, and it’s super easy to do!

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.

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!
