Watermelon Nails

Barry M Gelly Blueberry Muffin and Pink Grapefruit Swatch and Watermelon Nail Art

I know I'm not the only one that loves a bit of watermelon in the Summer months and can you believe I have never done watermelon nails before? I know that the Barry M Gellys Pink Grapefruit and Blueberry Muffin aren't really traditional watermelon colours but they look so cute together and they are close enough that it really works.

Barry M SS19 Gelly Nail Paints

Barry M SS19 Gelly Nail Paints Swatches

Barry M very kindly sent me a set of there newly released Gelly Nail Paints to swatch and try out and let me tell you, they are beautiful! I absolutely love the polishes from the Gelly nail range, not only are they glossy and fast drying, but they also stamp really well. These 4 new additions do not disappoint one little bit and they are the perfect shades for summery nails.

One little note: one of the main reason that I lost motivation is because my photos keep coming off my camera with a weird tint and no amount of colour correcting fixes some of them. So in some of these photos, they may be a slightly brighter shade than the actual polish or my skin has a weird tinge to it so that I could get the best colour on the polish. If you are a camera expert, hit me up, I have no idea what I am doing hahaha, I just use auto, then point and click!

But let's have a better look at these gorge polishes. All photos are 2 coats with no topcoat!

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Nails

Mystery Science Theater 3000 MST3K Nails Plus10Kapow

The heat has zapped all motivation and ability from me lately and I have really been struggling to do much of anything, let alone nail art. But I wanted to at least start this week being more productive and the best way for me to do that, is to do something I love.

Ever since I found out that Espionage Cosmetics did MST3K nail wraps for when the The Return was in the Kickstarter stage, I have wanted MST3K nails and since I haven't been able to find the nail wraps, I had to do my own. I am a huge fan of the show, both the classic and the newly revived. I really love Rifftrax too, if you don't know what that is but you're a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000, definitely check it out, you won't regret it, oh and bonus, there's loads of Rifftrax on Prime Video so if you have that, you're on to a winner.

Born Pretty Store Sea World L001

Born Pretty Store L001 stamping plate Aquaman Nerdy Nails

I have been fighting hard against a lack of motivation today and to make it worse, 75% of the nail art I had done this week looked shit on camera, so I have scrapped it all. So I am a bit bummed too.

Anyway, today I have this awesome Sea World stamping plate from Born Pretty to show you.

Game of Thrones Ice Dragon Nails

Game of Thrones Ice Dragon Nerdy Nails Clear jelly Stamper stamping plate

If you aren't up to date with Game of Thrones, there will be some spoilers mentioned in this post, so don't read if you don't want to know.

I wish I had done these earlier in the season but I still love how these look now and the Ice Dragon is/was pretty awesome. As soon as Prism Polish put up this Clear Jelly Stamper Winter is Coming stamping plate, I bought it. It's an awesome plate and with only 2 episode left of the series, I really wanted to get some more GoT nail art done. I have at least 1 other mani planned, which I will probably wear next week. Did you know Prism Polish stock quite a few awesome stamping plates now? Well, now you do!

Beauty Big Bang XL-065 Stamping Plate

Beauty Big Bang XL-065 nail art stamping plate peacock nails

Every time I try to be on track with things I just seem to get slacker and slacker. I have stuff done, like I am managing the actual nail art part of it, but when it comes to editing the photos, that's where I let myself down. So I am going to spend the next few days trying to catch up with this stuff.

Today's post is some fun nail art, done using the Beauty Big Bang XL-065 stamping plate.

Avengers: Endgame Nails

Avengers Endgame Nerdy Nails Thanos Infinity Stones

OMG you guys! I finally got to go see Avengers: Endgame on Friday night and I honestly have no words. Without any spoilers, just in case some of you haven't seen it yet, it was an emotional rollercoaster, I cried (twice) I laughed, there were some things I was hoping would happen that didn't, some things that happened that I really wasn't expecting but loved and it was just a fantastic movie overall!

I was super stuck for what nails to do and time was fast approaching. I had seen this idea for the Infinity Stones on loads of people but the first nails I saw it on were Lorraine Cink's, it's such a cute idea I wanted to do it and luckily I had the perfect little gems, no idea where I bought them from.

Born Pretty Artist L001 Stamping Plate

Born Pretty Store Artist L001 Pop Art Bright Nail Art

I have been so bad at posting to the blog lately, mostly because I have been trying to get things organised and maybe catch up on review things. And I finally managed to get some stuff done.

So today I am showing you the Artist L001 stamping plate from Born Pretty. This plate has 18 full nail images, all in styles of different artists, with my main faves being the Roy Lichtenstein style pop art images, so that's what I have used today.
