Space Invader Nails Inspired by Loot Crate LVLUP

If you follow me on Instagram you might know that I have been suffering with an MS relapse for the last few weeks, it's been a tough time and although I am still going through it, I am fed up of feeling down about it and I refuse to let it stop me doing things anymore, I am going to fight through it like a boss rather than just let it get to me. 

I am also sick of having naked nails, they are quite short now due to falls and grabbing things trying not to fall, and then once I got them short I broke another nail (middle) so they don't look great but they'll do. Doing nail art was quite difficult because my 'strong hand' (right hand) is not so strong at the moment and acts a bit derpy and drunk but I am pretty proud of how well I did considering.

Ok, so I didn't actually get LVLUP Wearable, but the hoodie from it was amazing, have you seen it? It's so friggin awesome and I am so jealous, I might have to keep an eye out on eBay to see if anyone ends up selling it *hopes*

I started with a base of Barry M Speedy Dragster which I topped with a coat of Seche. I made decals using the Uberchic Beauty Mat, Cheeky CH45 stamping plate, a clear jelly stamper from Born Pretty Store, Barry M Chai and Barry M Spring Green.

Once dry, I applied the decals to my nails and topped with Seche once I had cleaned the edges of the decals up, then I added one coat of OPI Matte topcoat and voila!

I am super happy and they have cheered me up immensely, not just the finished look but also the fact that I managed to do it and to a pretty good standard. What do you think about this look? Hope you're all having an awesome weekend!

Loot Crate: Invasion

This Loot Crate marks my 24th crate which makes it 2 full years of Loot and this crate couldn't have been any more perfect for this looterversary! The theme for the January crate was Invasion, already excited, because that blatantly meant sci-fi stuff, then they said there was going to be a Fifth Element item, excitement escalated to excited dribbling. Loot Crate nailed the start of the year and don't forget, there are new enamel pins and a guaranteed tee in every crate.

Do you wanna see what we got? Do you? Of course you do! here ya go:
