Black Milk Sharkie

As I am now a proud owner of over ten Black Milk pieces, I decided it was about time I painted my collection on my nails! There are actually five items missing from these nails - Gamer leggings, Woman In Red leggings, Artoo and Threepio leggings (which I already painted in a previous blog post), Adventure Time Bro Ball leggings and Adventure Time Friends GFT.
On my left hand I have Ginger Bread, Lace Spartans, Mechanicals, a shark (wouldn't be a proper sharkie if I didn't include a little shark in there), and Tapes (my very first Black Milk item). On my right hand I have Red Galaxies, Drogon Dragon Egg (haven't got these yet but they will be my next purchase), Red and Black, Leg Bones, and Splatter Skull.
I discovered this site a couple of years ago and they've been a dangerous addiction ever since, however they're worth every penny because they make my legs look super awesome!
Trying to save up for the Drogon Dragon Egg leggings at the moment, being a massive Game of Thrones fan. Got my eye on the new Wonder Woman Cape Suit for summer.
Can't wait to see what amazing designs they come up with next!

"Who are you wearing?!"

The most common question of the awards season.
The Academy Awards night is something I look forward to every year, not just for the nominees and winners but also for the fashion on the red carpet. There have been many classic beauties and blunders over the years so I decided to celebrate Oscar fashion by choosing eight Oscar winning actresses from various decades and painting their winning outfits on my nails.
On my left hand I have 'The Oscars', Diane Keaton (1978), Halle Berry (2002), Cher (1988) and Helen Hayes (1932). On my right hand I have my all time favourite Marion Cotillard (2008), an Oscar statuette, Cate Blanchett (2014), Audrey Hepburn (1954) and Olivia De Havilland (1947).
I completed my right hand the day after the awards ceremony so decided to include this years winner in there as her sequined nude dress was absolutely stunning.
I thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony this year and the winners all deserved their recognition as there were many amazing films involved. Look forward to more fashion beauties and faux pas next year.

RIP Trocadero

This week my friends and I went to say our final farewells to London's Trocadero. Although it hasn't been fully operating as a proper games arcade for a good few years now, it's still sad to see a part of our youth being taken over by another big posh hotel. Decided to paint some classic retro arcade games on my nails to commemorate.
On my left hand I have Pacman, Duck Hunt, a Streetfighter II "hadouken", Tetris and Asteroid. On my right hand I have Pong, Sonic the Hedgehog, Space Invaders, Dig Dug and Mortal Kombat.
Thanks to my geeky gamer friend Dave who helped me decide on which classic games to paint.

Here's a pic I took of Trocadero the day before it closed down for good:

May the gamers keep gaming and the memories live on...
