Fashion Friday: Nailed It!

share on:

Have you ever perused the Pinterest boards and saw awesome geeky nails that you know you could never recreate in a million years? If you can, kudos to you but I fail miserably at it. It looks like a kindergarten did my nails, no offense to kindergarteners. So imagine my excitement when I found out about Espionage Cosmetics‘ Kickstarter campaign, “Nailed It!”

“Nailed It!” is the world’s first nail-art designed exclusively for nerds. The company that has brought nerd inspired make-up to the masses has now forayed into the world of nails with 8 nerd-inspired designs printed on high quality, self-adhesive nail wraps. Nail designs range from zombie nails dripping with glittery blood to ninja turtle nails with googly eyes! There are even more amazing designs to come in the near future with nebula nails (and I mean based off actual nebulas) and internet cats.

Espionage Cosmetics is a small, woman owned business based in Tacoma, Washington (awesome, right?). It was founded in 2011 and has grown exponentially due to geek girls loving their glamorous products. You might have even seen them at a convention you have attended. Famous customers include Felicia Day, Bonnie Burton, Chloe Dykstra, and Ashley Burch. And honestly, who wouldn’t be a fan of theirs after seeing their products? It is a nerd girl’s dream!

Their Kickstarter isn’t a “maybe if it gets funded, you’ll get some nail art.” It is more of a pre-order. The girls will send you the actual products instead of rewards. Espionage Cosmetics is aiming for a goal of $20,000 and if that achievement is unlocked, everyone that ordered at or above $100 automatically gets more nail art for free!

I could write something really corny or awesome about me but honestly I'm just a young woman that loves geek culture, laughing, and keys (I have a strange obsession with keys). Follow me on Twitter!: @StoryInTheEnd
