Nail Of The Day – Essie Smooth Sailing, Technic Double Trouble Bollywood & Stamping With JQ-L12

Hi there! Happy Monday! Today’s post is about a mani I did just last week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essie Smooth Sailing (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Technic Double Trouble Bollywood (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used the gold glitter top coat from the double-ended Technic Double Trouble Bollywood to add some sparkle to the blue nails.

For the images on the minty nails I used my JQ-L12 stamping plate and a random black polish.

I didn’t like this mani because the stamped images didn’t look right. Ah well, onto the next mani!

Nail Of The Day – Technic Double Trouble Festival

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good week so far. I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I used one of the double-ended nail polishes I rediscovered when we moved house – Technic Double Trouble Festival. I’m wearing 2 coats of the raspberry polish and 2 coats of the glitter top coat.

I’ve had a number of cheap Technic polishes in the past. They were hit and miss. And with Technic, there is always a risk that the brushes are totally messed up, so you can’t even paint your nails properly… Anyhoo, this polish set is really nice. The raspberry polish is pretty, and the rainbow glitter is super cute.

Nail Of The Day – Technic Double Trouble Midsummer & Stamping With Maniology Secret Garden BM 721

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Technic Double Trouble Midsummer (2 easy coats).

For the images I used my Maniology (formerly Bundle Monster) Secret Garden BM 721 stamping plate.

I double-stamped! I used a random black polish and my shiny Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette nail art polish.

I really liked this mani! But it was no surprise. This shade of purple (I call it milky purple) is my favourite nail colour. And I love double-stamping!

Technic Sultry Eyeshadows – Tawny

Hi there! I can’t get enough of neutral eyeshadows, so I bought another eye palette: Technic Sultry Eyeshadows – Tawny. This small palette contains six shades – four shimmers (shades 2,3,4,6) and two mattes (1,5).

The colour selection is really nice, but the swatches look quite faint – that’s because the eyeshadows are not as pigmented as I hoped. However, the eyeshadows don’t give me any trouble in terms of fallout or creasing.

I don’t think I would buy this eyeshadow palette again. Priced at £1.49 it’s an absolute bargain. However, other comparable drugstore products are of much better quality. If you want to give Technic Sultry Eyeshadows – Tawny a try, this is what the palette looks like.
