Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Pepperminty & Stamping With Pueen 75 (Nail Fail)

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani a did a while back. As you can see from the title of this post, I think it’s a fail.

So for this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Pepperminty. I like this polish because it dries reasonably quickly and it’s opaque in two coats.

I chose an abstract image from Pueen’s 75 plate (from Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection) which I stamped on with Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

There are two reasons why I don’t like this mani. First of all, I hate the image. I don’t even know what it’s supposed to be, and it really doesn’t look good at all.

In addition, Pepperminty reminds me too much of public toilets… So yeah, I’m glad this ugly mani is history! 😀

Nail Of The Day – Pueen, Rimmel, Revlon, W7, Orly & Filthy Gorgeous / Nail Art Challenge #21 Inspired By A Colour

Pueen 72Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. And this mani is another one that counts towards the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

So today’s mani is my entry for challenge #21 Inspired By A Colour. Obviously, this colour is blue. 🙂

I painted my thumb, middle finger and pinky with Rimmel 60 Seconds 231 Blue Eyed Girl (2 coats).

And I painted my index and ring fingers with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry (2 coats).

Then I applied one coat of W7 96 Mosaic to my accent nail (ring finger).

The images I stamped on are from Pueen’s 72 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Stamping Buffet collection).

And I used the following nail polishes to stamp on the images:
Orly Snowcone (pinky and thumb),
Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize (middle finger),
Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (index finger)

I think this mani turned out great. I like the colours that I picked, I love the glitter accent, and I think the images are almost perfect. Do you agree? Feel free to tell me what you think. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Boots No.7 Devil’s Delight & Stamping With Pueen 77 / Nail Art Challenge #1 Red Nails

uploadHi there! I’m continuing with the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge, and today’s post is about Red Nails (Nail Art Challenge #1).

For this mani I painted my nails with Boots No.7 Devil’s Delight (two coats). I like the formula of this polish. It’s perfect. And the No.7 brush (wide, flat) is great too.

If you know me, you know I can’t just paint my nails and leave it at that. And I think the Nail Art Challenge is worthy of more than just plain red nails.

So I decided to stamp! I chose a cute image from Pueen’s 77 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection). The white stamping polish is Essence’s fantastic Stampy Polish.

I’m pleased with this mani and I really like the red and white colour combination. Do you agree? Feel free to let me know what you think. Oh, and the next mani might be ‘inspired by fashion’ (I’m thinking of something…) so let’s see how it goes! And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Ciaté Kiss Chase And Stamping With Pueen Love Elements 39 & 46

Ciate Kiss Chase Pueen Love ElementsHi there! Since it’s time for another mani post, I thought I show you one of the manis I wore last week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Ciaté Kiss Chase (two coats). I like the cute pink shade, and I’m impressed with how quickly the polish dried. Well done, Ciaté!

The stamping plates I chose for this mani were Pueen’s 39 and 46 plates from Pueen’s Love Elements stamping collection. I love the images. They’re all so cute.

The black polish I stamped with is the one and only Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto. It’s not a real stamping polish, but it stamps perfectly.

Do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for reading! 🙂
