Espionage Cosmetics World 1-1

Espionage Cosmetics World 1-1 Super Mario Maker nail wraps Nintendo Nerdy Nails 3ds

The Espionage Cosmetics wraps are so cool that I often find myself saving them for special occasions in the nerd calendar, like movie anniversaries, or game releases. And I don't know I you know, but Super Mario Maker 2 released yesterday, so this weekend is the perfect weekend to be wearing these amazing World 1-1 nail wraps.

Ok, before anyone says it, I know that Super Mario Maker 2 is not on the 3DS, but I'm poor and can't afford 2 yet so I have been playing Super Mario Maker. And even worse, I can't remember where I put my copy so I'm having to play Jim 3DS with his digital download. But I just wanted to clear that up before anyone thinks I'm a controller licking, fake gamer girl, I'm just a low income gamer girl haha.

Take Me To Your Neons

Neon alien nails inspired by Dorkface Blog's art, using the Wikkid Polish Bring on Spring Pastel Neons

I have been really enjoying using the Wikkid Polish Bring on Spring pastel neons, and when I was sat there at my desk, wondering what to do next, I saw the unused Moyou Tumblr Girl 08 plate staring back at me and I instantly remembered the awesome alien art (this one and this one) that Jemma from Dorkface Blog had done and so this neon alien nail art is inspired by Jemma's art. Jemma is bright and colourful, creative and awesome, so if you don't follow her then I highly recommend it.

80s style Vector nails

80s style Vector nails Maniology M050 Game Over insert coin stamping plate

The Maniology Game Over: Insert Coin plates have some really cool images on them and some of them have really stuck in my head in the kind of way that, I really want to do some nails with them but have absolutely no idea what to do.

This vector image on Maniology M050 was one of those images. Until a few days ago, I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I Googled 80s vector wallpaper (imaginative, I know and this one caught my eye.

Uberchic mini Take Me Out To The BallGame stamping plate Baseball nails Nail Artisan

I was also lucky to receive one of the new, Uberchic releases from Alex at Nail Artisan. She very kindly sent me the Take Me Out to the BallGame mini plate. Now, I honestly have no clue in the slightest about anything to do with baseball, but this plate is the cutest! If I was a fan of baseball, it would definitely be on my wishlist.

Beach Please!

Maniology Mani X Me Mermaid MXM007 MXM008 Stamping Plate nails Barry M Fortune Teller

So these mermaid plates are from the May Mani X Me Express Kit from Maniology, but because I have been so slack I am only just getting round to using them. And while I pay for my Maniology subscription myself, some of the Barry M nail polishes in this mani were gifted to me.

Beauty Big Bang Butterfly BBBXL-068

Beauty Big Bang XL-068 BBBXL-068 stamping plate Butterfly nails Barry M Gradient

2 fun facts for you: 1) Butterflies are the symbol for Multiple Sclerosis. This is because when you look at the MRI of your brain, it looks like a butterfly, and because all the colours of butterflies represent the constant changing symptoms and unpredictable course of MS.

And 2) While I can (sort of) appreciate the beauty of butterflies, I get completely freaked out by all and any bugs, and this includes butterflies. I don't understand where it came from but for as long as I can remember, I have always been super afraid of insects. If any come near me, you will hear random noises coming from me and I will drop everything and (attempt to) run away.

Born Pretty Geometry L001 Stamping Plate

90s style nails using the Born Pretty Geometry L001 stamping plate

Today I have the Geometry L001 plate from Born Pretty Store to show you. Whenever I see these plates, I instantly think of the 90s and more specifically, the intros to loads of 90s tv shows, and so my nail art using these plates, always ends up being something very reminiscent of the 90s. Which I am definitely not complaining about, you know I love me some 90s aesthetics and I wish my all day, every day could be 90s everything.

What do you think of when you see these plate types?

Glequin Daisies

Barry M Gelly Banana Split Swatch and Daisies Nail Art

It's not often that you'll catch me with flowers on my nails but Banana Split from Barry M was screaming out for some basic daisies. Of course, it's also  not often that you'll find me with basic nails, so I had to also add in some glequins for the centre.
