Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora, Sinful Colors Blue LaLa & Stamping With MoYou London Sailor 06

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

Whilst this mani looked great in real life, it didn’t look great in any of the photos I took. Based on the photo, you’re forgiven for thinking it was a nail fail.

Alright… for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora (2 coats, pinkies and ring fingers). This is one of the textured (= rough) glitter polishes that were the rage a few years ago.

For the thumbs, index and middle fingers I used Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats).

I decided to stamp. The marine-themed stamping plate I used is MoYou London Sailor 06.

The gold stamping polish is Sally Hansen Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms.

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today. And it’s another marine mani!

For this mani I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats, pinkies, middle fingers), Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon (2 coats, ring fingers), and Maybelline Colorshow 654 Superpower Blue (2 coats, index fingers, thumbs).

I used MoYou London‘s super cute Doodles 07 stamping plate.

I like this mani. It’s not my best marine mani, but it looks cute, so what’s not to like? Do you like marine manis? Feel free to get in touch. By the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Essence Out Of Space Stories 06 We Will Spock You & MoYou London Doodles 07 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge U – Underwater

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This mani is my Underwater mani.

I started by painting my nails with Essence Out Of Space Stories 06 We Will Spock You. This isn’t the greatest silver holo polish, but it does the job.

I used MoYou London’s Doodles 07 plate and Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (the dark blue polish I stamped with) to complete this mani.

I’m happy with this mani. I know I did a very similar mani not too long ago – but I just love holo + cuteness + all things marine. 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07 / Nail Art Challenge #13 Animal Print

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post. And this mani is also my attempt at Animal Print nails which is challenge #13 of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge.

For this mani I painted my nails with Essence Aquatix 04 Under The Sea. This polish is supposed to be a holographic nail polish, but the holo effect isn’t very strong. And I would describe the actual colour of this polish as steel. Or steel-y. It’s neither grey nor blue.

The cute sea life images are featured on MoYou’s Doodles 07 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is NYC In A Minute 001 Evil.

I realise that the person who thought up the original 31 Days Nail Art Challenge thought of Animal Print nails as zebra or leopard nails (or something similar). But I didn’t want to do another animal stripes mani so soon. And sea creatures are animals too, so I think I’m OK. 🙂

I like this mani! The holo polish could be prettier, but the images are just too cute. What do you think? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Underwater Nails Feat. Rimmel, Pueen, Revlon, Filthy Gorgeous & Essence

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

We had a few colleagues from France over at our office. I managed to dress properly (navy-blue suit, red and white striped top), but I couldn’t bring myself to wear plain red nails (yawn).

Since I was already dressed like a sailor, I thought I might as well just do a marine mani using the French national colours. And that’s exactly what I did! 🙂

And I used these products:
red base colour – Revlon 335 Mon Cherry,
blue base colour – Rimmel 231 Blue Eyed Girl,
white base colour – Rimmel 703 White Hot Love,

white stamping colour – Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish White,
blue stamping colour – Filthy Gorgeous Midnight,
red stamping colour – Revlon 335 Mon Cherry.

I chose images from three different stamping plates – Pueen 89 (shells), Pueen 91 (fish and corals), and Pueen 96 (anchors). These three stamping plates are part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure stamping collection!

I realise this mani looks quite busy – but I really love it! I also got quite a few compliments which was very nice! How do you like this mani? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry & MoYou London Doodles 07

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend. 🙂

I’m starting the new week with a mani post. I really like how this mani turned out, so let me tell you how I did it.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Salon Pro 636 Hooray Henry. This polish is almost a one-coater. Great quality!

I wanted a cute mani, so I grabbed one of my favourite cute stamping plates, MoYou London Doodles 07, and I went to work! 🙂

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin.

Feel free to comment if you want. And thank you for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Essence The Gel Nail Polish 33 Wild White Days, B. Complete 154 Brit, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria & Stamping With MoYou London Doodles 07

072016 Underwater ManiHi there! This is another mani I did recently. I painted my nails with Essence The Gel Nail Polish 33 Wild White Days (pinky), Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria (ring and middle fingers), and B. Complete 154 Brit (index finger, thumb).

I didn’t know what to do with the white & blue mani – I didn’t feel inspired at all. So in the end I opted for an underwater mani.

I used Essence Nail Art Stampy Polish in White (ring and index finger, thumb) and Filthy Gorgeous Midnight (pinky, middle finger) to stamp on images from Moyou London’s Doodles 07 plate.

Unfortunately I smudged the image on my pinky. Not sure how it happened. But all in all I like this mani. In regards to the polishes I used, I found the Rimmel polish to be amazing. The formula was perfect and it applied like a charm. Brilliant!

The B. polish wasn’t great. It took ages to dry and I had to apply three coats. The B. polish was also prone to chipping, so within 24 hours I had to ‘fix’ all the nails I painted with this polish. Not great. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the B. polish didn’t stain at all when I removed it. The white Essence polish is alright. It really is opaque in two coats. But it takes a while to dry and the formula is on the goopy side.

Feel free to comment if you wish. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Underwater Mani – Featuring Max Factor, Orly, Pueen & Sugar Bubbles

Marine Mani with Orly and Max FactorHi there! I’ve done a few underwater-themed manis in the past few months – and I haven’t run out of ideas for even more underwater-themed manis. So here’s another one! 🙂

I painted my nails with Max Factor Glossfinity 140 Cobalt Blue. This is a really nice polish – it’s basically opaque in one coat!

I selected images from two stamping plates – Sugar Bubbles SB 031 (pinky, ring finger) and Pueen 91 (middle and index fingers) from Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

The light blue polish I used to stamp on the images is Orly Snowcone. It’s not a real stamping polish but it stamps so well that I’ll use it for stamping only from now on.

I think this mani turned out even better than I hoped. I really love it. Please feel free to tell me what you think. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Ciaté Hopscotch (base colour index finger).
