Espionage Cosmetics Pizza in Space Wraps


I don't know about you, but when I think of pizza in any other context than eating it, I immediately think of the Ninja Turtles, not that thinking of the Ninja Turtles is bad, I'm cool with it and I think Donnie was too. Plus this pizza is in space and the Turtles have been to space. Coincidence? I think not! So me and Donnie are off on a mission but before that, let me show you these pretties.

Beauty Big Bang Christmas Stamping Plate 15

Today I am finally getting round to showing you the final plate from the Beauty Big Bang Christmas stamping plates. This plate is a prime example of a plate that isn't just for Christmas.

It has 6 full sized images, 3 of which are Christmas images and 3 of which can be used whenever. The moustache and glasses image would be a great one for Movember. The stripes would be good for one for a Harry Potter mani, Slytherin obviously. An the stars, well, they could be used for loads of different things, it really all depends on your base and the colour you stamp with or fill in with.

I went for a simple white nail using a gorgeous custom I got a while ago from Polished By Leanne, called Plus10Kapow. Then I stamped in black using Moyou Black Knight and I filled in some of the stars using NYC Lexington Yellow and picked up the stars I didn't fill in with some tape, then I stamped the image onto my nail and topped off with a coat of Seche.

The plate picks up really well and has no imperfections.

You can find stamping plate 15 here as part of the Christmas plate set for £8.63/$11.99 or here on it's own for £1.86/$2.59.

Beauty Big Bang Nail Art Mat and Clear Stamper

Recently I have been playing around a lot with this nail art mat and a clear jelly stamper from Beauty Big Bang. Nail art mats have become a massive part of most nail bloggers set up, it's essential and does so many things, but all of the mats are pretty much the same, and follow the lead of Uberchic's first nail art mat. This one is slightly different though. It has 10 rounded 'nails' on the left of the matte, 5 in black and 5 in white. And it has 10 squared 'nails' on the right, again 5 in black and 5 in white. This makes it really easy to have multiple decals being made at the same time. It also has quite a few swatch circles in both white and black and it has a little ruler down the bottom  which i am sure will come in handy for some.

Espionage Cosmetics Silent Cartographer Nail Wraps

So tomorrow it's all back to normal. Kian is back to school, yay! I'm back at the gym every morning, yay. Man have I missed the gym. You really notice how much it helps with anxiety and sleeping patterns when you haven't been for more than a few days.

But other than that, things will be pretty, well, normal (read boring). Which is why we make our nails interesting and pretty, to stand out in all the 'normal' and give us little happys throughout the day.

The book in my title photo was from the May 2016 Dungeon Loot Gaming. The chest and ring were from the May 2016 Geek Fuel.

Winter Jumper Nails

I hope you all had a fab Christmas. What goodies did you get? It's amazing how a holiday can proper take it out of you, I feel exhausted and I have barely done anything. But it was really enjoyable and I had a great time, now I just want to get back to the gym.

Today I have these winter jumper nails to show you, using the BeautyBigBang 14 stamping plate.

This plate has 6 full size images, most are great for just standard stamping with one great for reverse stamping. The plate picks up well as the others and has no imperfections. I went with the jumper because it seemed the least Christmassy now that Christmas has passed but the cold is still here.

You can get this plate here for £1.76/$2.39 or you can buy it as part of the set of 5 Christmas stamping plates here for £8.85/$11.99 and you can use my code PLUS10 for 10% off your order.

Polishes used: Barry M Rose Hip, Barry M Gray Matter and Barry M Cotton.
