Pokemon GO! Makeup Gallery Nails*

I can’t remember if I’ve told you but I’m now a Makeup Gallery Brand Ambassador. Exciting ‘ey? You can buy their products in Poundland, so you guessed it, they’re pretty damn cheap! I’ve been using the nail polishes from them for a while and I would definitely recommend them for the price. The brand also does nail art accessories which are also pretty decent! My first challenge was to go and buy* Makeup Gallery nail polishes and do some nail art, and I also have a nail polish swatch for you. Let’s crack on. IMG_0153IMG_0145So above are the products I picked up, along with a base coat which I stupidly forgot to photograph, and used for the next 2 nail arts. From left to right of the nail polishes we have Winter White, Sunshine Yellow, Purple Rain, Sky Blue, Pillar Box Red and Candy Pink. I used the nail art brushes and the dotting tools for my designs too.

So Bulbasaur turned out a little blue (oops) I should have done squirrel but he’s pretty boring in the face! I used all but Purple Rain for this design and added a couple of acrylic paints for the details. Obviously I had to join in on the Pokemon GO! nails hype because yes, I’ve been playing the game at every opportunity and yes I’m an actual fan! I still have my classic Nintendo Pocket with Red, Yellow and Blue Pokemon games.

These turned out a little messy, through no fault of the nail polish, but my own need to rush! I always do this and wish I’d spent more time on them but I didn’t have time 😦 The colours took a little more building up than I’m used to when doing the gradients but they dried quickly enough so it wasn’t too much hassle. I also decided to use gel pens for the details and the white looked more opaque in real life than in the photo! Oh well, I tried and I might try and recreate this design another time!

It’s a gorgeous coffee coloured neutral that applied beautifully in 2 coats (almost 1!) and that shine? is without a topcoat! For £1 you can’t go wrong.

Be sure to check out their range next time you pop into Poundland or from the website as they have a whole makeup line.

*being a Makeup Gallery Ambassador I didn’t pay for any of this products out of my own pocket but this is my honest review!

  1. Haha, I love these nails and you did great matching the colours to the faces. I’m a big fan of cheap polish but have never tried these. To be honest my pound land is always full to the brim and very messy. I try and avoid it, but I may pop in next time if it’s quieter. Vicky xx
