Marmite Nails AND Our 150th Post! What Could Be Better Than That?

Thank you for sticking around this long.  Here's to 8375290394543789405.200 more.

Anyways I don't know what you do at 4am, but I know I attempt nail art.

So if you've read this blog for a while now you probably already know I LOVE Marmite.  It's my salty elixir, from the yeasty gods(This post also now contains the WORST sentence ever used in this blog).  Especially on grilled cheese. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... What I'm trying to say is if you can go and try some.  You might like it.  Maybe love it?

So I've wanted to do Marmite nails for a while now.  But I always kind of shied away from it.  Even if it's only on one nail, nail art that doesn't consist of lines or dots is a challenge for me.  Small lettering frightens me like a Weeping Angels frighten Amy and Rory.  Maybe it was because it was 4am and I was feeling bold I decided to just try doing a Marmite jar on my thumb(never intending to post it).  And you know what?  I didn't hate it(like Marmite!)!  So I decided to do the rest of my nails Marmite themed and using my striping tape.  And I put the love and hate on my index and pinky finger because you wither 'Love It or Hate It'.  The ring finger is gold because you can currently get limited edition jar with gold coloured flecks in it!

All in all it's not my best manicure BUT I did step out of my comfort zone by actually trying some more detailed stuff!

 (L-R) OPI Black Onyx, acrylic paints, Essie Pretty Edgy, Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure and gold striping tape.


  1. I love that you did this! And I think you did very well with the lettering... certainly you're braver than I. I could never make the lettering legible. And I've never tried Marmite... I feel some trepidation about it, although I'd definitely give it a shot.

  2. I LOVE it - maybe even more than I love Marmite :P x

  3. this is adorable! i never tried marmite but i LOVE this mani!

  4. I couldn't manage this fully awake, much less at 4 a.m.

  5. I used to be active in a fragrance forum where there was a whole subforum dedicated to marmite. I became curious, not enough so to actually eat it. I admit it continues to pique my interest, in a "What...what *is* that?"sort of way, or in the way a cat tentatively bats at an unknown, then quickly jumps backward, so as to keep an eye on yet maintain a safe distance. Maybe marmite is my weeping angel.

    Your nails look amazing. One of the best pop art manis I've ever seen.

  6. These Marmite (never tried it) nails are so well painted and fun - great job!!

  7. LOVE these Marmite inspired nails, they look amazing!!!! I'm definitely not a fan of Marmite itself though lol, just don't have the taste for it!

  8. I applaud you for trying Marmite (and liking it) and finally attempted to do some nail art for it! I've heard terrifying stories about Marmite...but I think those people had just stuff a spoonful in their mouth...that's not how you are suppose to eat it right? Lol

    1. Well there's always been Marmite in my house so I've never not liked it. And no I wouldn't suggest anyone eat it by the spoonful. :s

  9. Love the mani, although I've never tried Marmite...
