Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow, China Glaze Red Satin, Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green & Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (pinkies), China Glaze Red Satin (ring and middle fingers), and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (index fingers and thumbs).

The glitter topper I used on my pinkies is Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter.

I really like this mani! But I’ve realised that I need a better red glitter topper!

Why did I do this mani? Well, I’m a total tennis nut. And Belarus has been my favourite Fed Cup team for quite some time now.

Why is that? Well, over the past 2 years the Belarusian fed cup players have shown that they’re true champions. The players have given their all, and they’ve played well above their respective rankings to despatch higher ranked players on a number of occasions. How could anyone not root for them?! Well, I certainly hope they win their tie this weekend!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-S161, BM-S162 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge K – Kitties

Hi there! I’ve got a nail of the day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is one of the best white nail polishes I’ve ever had. Well done, Primark!

Since I wanted to do a cat mani, I used Bundle Monster’s BM-S161 and BM-S162 stamping plates (which are part of Bundle Monster’s Fuzzy & Ferocious collection).

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go.

The mani looked a little messy – and I think the stamping plates are to blame. I’ve used these two plates before and I had the same problem. But in real life no one noticed. 😉

This mani goes in the A-Z Nail Art Challenge folder. I’ll file in under K – Kitties. How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine, PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow, Essence Come To Town Lametta Topper & Stamping With Pueen 44

Hi there! It’s after Christmas, but… here’s another Christmas Nail Idea. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (middle fingers), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (ring fingers).

I used Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper to add a little sparkle to the white base. And I used Pueen’s 44 plate (which is part of Pueen’s Love Elements collection) and Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize to stamp golden stars onto the green base.

I like this mani. It’s christmassey, but it’s not over the top. I also like the individual look of the mani – it’s not one of those standard manis that everyone (myself included) does again and again, year after year… How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Quick Dry Nail Polish 18 Strobe & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-S161 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge Z – Zebra

Hi there! Today I’m showing you another mani that I did for the brilliant A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

For the Z – Zebra challenge I painted my nails with Primark PS… Quick Dry Nail Polish 18 Strobe (2 easy coats). This is a very good white polish. And it’s 60p only. I will stock up!

I used Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go and Bundle Monster’s BM-S161 plate (from Bundle Monster’s Fuzzy And Ferocious set) to stamp zebra stripes onto my nails.

I’ve never done a zebra mani before but I think it turned out quite alright. What do you think? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Nail Art Challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I did for the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge. And this mani is for challenge #28 Inspired By A Flag.

This challenge is (well, was) one of the few that I thought I might have to skip. However, I remembered that Canada Day is just around the corner. And I also have quite a few Canadian blogging buddies, so I thought I could do Canada nails. 😉

I didn’t have any stamping plates with large maple leaf images, and I couldn’t draw a maple leaf if my life depended on it. So I opted for a stamping image that featured small maple leaves.

Which products did I use? I chose Boots No 7 Devil’s Delight as my red base colour. The white nail polish I used for the accent nail is MUA White Wash. The red stamping colour is Rimmel 60 Seconds 320 Red Ruby, and the stamping plate is an unbranded one that’s just called CF-17.

I really like how this mani turned out! One of the maple leaves didn’t stamp perfectly, but all in all I’m happy with this mani.

How do you like this mani? And if you’re Canadian – will you try a Canada Day mani? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – MUA White Wash & Stamping With Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria & JQ43 / Nail Art Challenge #20 Water Marble (Cheat)

Hi there! Today’s post is about another nail art challenge that I’ve completed. Well, I haven’t done what I was supposed to do, but since I’m doing the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge for no one but myself, I’m happy to bend the rules. 🙂

Alrighty! For challenge #20 Water Marble I should have done a water marble mani. However, the JQ 43 stamping plate, which I’ve had for ages, features an image that looks like a water marble. So I gave it a try.

And this is the result! Does this mani look like a water marble mani? Remotely. But that’s good enough for me! Challenge completed!

Which products did I use? The white base colour is MUA White Wash. The stamping colour is Revlon Colorstay 260 Bold Sangria. The stamping plate is an unbranded one – it’s just called JQ 43.

Any comments? Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Blood & Bats For Halloween – Featuring Essence, Revlon & Maybelline / Nail Art Challenge #23 Inspired By A Movie

bloody bats nail artHi there! Today’s post is about my Halloween 2016 mani – blood & bats.

I had the idea to do this mani when I did my Halloween Nail Ideas post earlier this month. In that post I showed you photos of a bat mani and a blood spatter mani – and back then I knew that I wanted to combine the two.

So for this mani I painted my nails with Essence The Gel Polish 33 Wild White Days (1 coat). Then I applied a few blobs of red polish – Maybelline Colorshow 349 Power Red – with (a small piece of) a make-up sponge.

I used two no-name stamping plates – M94 (Konad dupe) and A13 – and my favourite black polish, Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto, to stamp on the bats.

I think this mani turned out nicer than expected. I wasn’t sure if a sponge would be the right tool to create a bloody background for the bats – but I think it looks quite authentic. So yes, I chose the right tool for this nail art job! 🙂

I’m also including this mani in my 31 Days Nail Art Challenge as #23 Inspired By A Movie. The movie would be ‘Bats’, a shockingly bad movie featuring bloodthirsty bats (and with plenty of shockingly bad acting).

If you’re still looking for last-minute Halloween nail art inspiration, please check out all the manis I’ve done this month – they’re all Halloween-themed! I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween tomorrow. And thanks for stopping by!
