Nail Art Inspired by Xbox Socks

Xbox Numskull Geekstore Socks Nerdy Gamer Nails

Numskull recently released their new Xbox collection which is for sale on Geekstore, and one of the items in that collection was these really socks. I instantly loved the design on them and wanted to do some nails. The pattern I have done isn't exactly the same but I think I have gotten close enough, what do you think?

This post is not sponsored in any way, I just really like the pattern on the socks.

Espionage Cosmetics Egg-Citing Manicure

Espionage Cosmetics Egg-Citing Manicure Easter Eggs Nail Wraps

I know we're already almost through Easter Sunday but I completely forgot to put this post up yesterday. I have been saving these nail wraps for a year after I received them in the March NEXUS a little after last year's Easter holidays, so I had to wear them this weekend.

Wikkid Polish Custom Trio Inspired by Stargate

You may have seen that I am currently running a giveaway over on my Instagram because I recently passed the 2k followers mark and I was/am pretty stoked about it. All of the items in the giveaway were purchased by me, except the trio of polishes from Wikkid Polish. Sarah very kindly offered to sponsor my giveaway and made this stunning trio of polishes, inspired by Stargate. Not only that, but she also made a trio for me and gifted them. So obviously I had to swatch them to show you how beautiful they really are, and to tempt you to pop over to my Instagram and enter the giveaway.

So let's have a look at these beauties.

An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away! Supposedly.

So, they say "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" which is utter bullshit clearly and I would like a refund on all the apples I have bought over the years hahaha.

All of my photos on my camera are coming out with a weird tint on them, most of the time it's a blue tint and it doesn't colour correct very well, so I am sorry if the colours sort of look weird. I know I have said this many a time before, but I really should learn all the ins and outs of my camera. I am just a lazy camera user.

Beauty Big Bang XL-069 stamping Barry M Moyou Black Knight

The weather today is the type of weather that I love just being curled up in bed with a Netflix binge happening but, alas, my brain will not let me chill out, I have to get stuff done. So instead, I have been trying out this very pretty stamping plate from Beauty Big Bang.

Be a Dragon! Game of Thrones Nail Art

Game of Thrones Be a Dragon Nerdy Nails Daenerys Targaryan

So a week today, the final season of Game of Thrones begins and it promises to be amazing. I may have another Game of Thrones mani to wear next week but today I got a little flicker of inspiration while scrolling Jordandene's website.

I think maybe I went a little too subtle with the dragon scales on this one, and it hasn't photographed particularly well, but I am sort of proud of my thumb, which is why I am still posting this.

Game of Thrones Be a Dragon Nails Daenerys Targaryan Jordandene

Although I don't own this design of Jordan's, the "Be a Dragon" design is pretty awesome. I tried to get my letters as close to the Jordandene design as possible, and you all know I hate doing small letters, but even though it's not perfect, I love how it turned out.

Polishes used: Barry M Black Forest
Danglefoot Nail Polish Crazy Ice King
Barry M Cotton
Moyou Black Knight
Moyou White Knight
Seche Vite

Stamping Plate: Messy Mansion MM21

Are you ready to get your heart ripped out and shredded on Sunday? Who are you rooting for? I am Team Daenerys all the way!

Oh, and FYI, all Marvel Jordandene designs has been brought back for a limited time in the run up to Avengers: Endgame. Just in case you wanted to grab some of the retired designs before the also rip out your heart!

Hope your Sunday has been awesome!

Born Pretty Dipping Powder- Sahara Eye

I seem to have definitely lost my mojo with these powders. Before I was just using a cheap, gel topcoat to wear these but I had started to struggle and couldn't get them to work, and I had heard that the no-wipe topcoats were better, so I bought a Black Heart and a no-wipe topcoat from Kiki London to use this gorgeous Born Pretty chameleon dipping powder, they are both fab but I still couldn't get it to work the regular "rubbing" way. So I did the stamper method, where you rub the powder on a stamper until it looks blended and then stamp it on to the nails.

Espionage Cosmetics Borderlands The Pre-Sequel

Borderlands 3 Espionage Cosmetics Nail Wraps Nerdy Gamer Nails

OK, before I get your hopes up, these are, in fact, fairly old nail wraps. But with all the Borderlands chatter recently, I just had to dig them out of my collection and finally get them worn. Are you excited for Borderlands 3? Are you playing any of the older ones in preparation?

Pirate Cove Nails

These were super hard to photograph but as the sun has been out for part of the day, I decided it was definitely some time for holo glitter. Yes, it turned out that this was maybe too much gold for one mani to handle and that may have been part of the reason the photos look terrible but it's pretty, so nyah!
