Burgers and Nails


Beauty and fast food are not often seen hand in hand… that is, until Burgers and Nails became the the blog of the moment amongst those who (seem to) know. The concept is simple: 1 x burger + 1 x pair of decorated fingernails. The rules are equally simple. Take a photo of yourself with both your burger-of-choice and your imaginative nail art and submit to the site listing the colour and varnish used and details of the burger, including an all-important score out of ten. The site’s unprecedented popularity may be puzzling but wait until you, like many, find yourself falling victim to hours spent browsing the latest in nail stencils and deep fried beef.  Be warned of the potential for a serious burgers and nails addiction…


We love a submission that makes us squeal with glee like this one from Pearypie.<br />
“Barbapapa love burgers!! Hi guys, my name is Pearypie and these little guys are barbapapa.<br />
“The bright barbapapa’s base colours were painted with Essie &amp; OPI and their round eyes and cutey smiles were done by acrylic paint :). Last but not least, I glazed my barbapapas with that lovely glossy finish using ORLY Topcoat!<br />
“These barbapapa love eating Maccy D’s!! And since there are 10 of them, one burger could never enough for them to eat, so I piled together a triple of double-bigMACs, creating a burger tower. All my barbapapa are able to enjoy the burgers from the top to bottom. And for the taste? Barbapapa gave it a 10/10!! YUMYUMYUM :) xxx”

Nailburgerlar met up with The Illustrated Nail and what fun we all had chatting away, getting to know each other only to have time fly! Several hours later, 3 very happy nailburgerlars with spectacular nails jumped for joy at the awesomeness of The Illustrated Nail.<br />
Here is 1/3 of Nailburgerlar’s Burger and Nails post.<br />
The Californian Burger with Guacamole &amp; Emmentel cheese was from The Diner in Hoxton. 7 patties out of 10. The burger pattie tasted a bit watery.<br />
Much Love!<br />

It’s my sister in San Francisco! Here’s what she had to say about her double posting of double-doubles from In-N-Out;
“On our way to Phish in Tahoe we stopped for a much needed meal. Knowing that it would probably be the only meal of the day we decided to kick it up a notch and go with the double-double.  Bryna is wearing Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects in Bling It On. Her burger, a double-double animal style with extra pickles.  I’m wearing Salley Hansen’s Salon Effects in Wild Child. My burger was a normal double-double with raw onions. Both burgers were a delicious 9/10.”
Thanks my sister! -Bret

All eyes on Blase Party! 
“Evil eye nails. Sally Hansen “Pacific Blue” and Butter London “Rosie Lee”. Painted by my pal Vanessa while on a mini vaycay in Chico, CA where we got burgers from the infamous Burger Hut.”

This amazing nail print was inspired by the stunning Crystal dress by our friends the gorgeous and ethical designers Nancy Dee. Nail Polish is Wild Lilac from Gosh.
The Burger is from Rivington Grill in Shoreditch. I asked for medium rare and boy was it tasty! 8 1/2 out of 10. It’s still one of my favourite burgers yet!
