The Lacquer Ring – Comic Book Nails

I love Lacquer Ring Thursday! It’s so fun to see what each of us picks as themes and even more fun to see all of our interpretation on that theme πŸ™‚

As you know this month was Amy’s pick, for her color choice we all did teal nails, and for nail art she chose Comic Book nails!

I was so excited with these theme! I love Wolverine so of course I was going to find a way to incorporate him on my nails!

First, here are my inspirations:

My Favorite:

Wolverine comic

My Husbands favorite:

IronmanAnd what I call my ‘bull in a China shop’ husband (he’ll kill me for telling you all this LOL)

HulkI have this really cool ‘Whaam!’ stamp on one of my MoYou plates so I knew right off the bat based on my Superhero inspirations I would do one of my nails with that. First I painted the nail white then mixed Orly’s Sweet Peacock and Zoya’s Posh to get this really cool mixed color. I stamped that nail first.

For my Wolverine nail I painted two coats of Opi’s I can’t Copacabana. Once Dry I free-handed the black pointed stripes in his top using Sinful colors blackest black and a fine brush. I did the pants accent in Orly’s Sweet Peacock and Zoya’s Posh and then did the X for his X-men belt using Blackest Black again. Finally I put scratch marks from his claws. They look a little shaky but my stupid thin brush kept making bumps I need a new one 😦 Anyway that’s Wolverines claw marks πŸ™‚

IMG_7204Next up for my Iron Man nail I did two coats of Zoya’s Posh. Once dry I stamped the same Zoya stamp you see above from one of the circuit board type stamping plates so I could get that circle. I used I can’t Copacabana again and filled in the circle using two coats. Once dry again I used Opi’s OPI with a Nice Fin-nish to stamp overtop again and made lines to make it sort of look glowy for Iron Mans Arc Reactor.

IMG_7203Lastly it was gonna be very hard for my to draw Hulk’s ‘Me Smash’ fist so I just went for his skin using Zoya’s Verushka. I then used my brush and did his pants with Ulta’s Celebutante.

Well there you have my Marvel themed Comic Book nails. Whatcha think? πŸ˜‰Β  Make sure you check out the other girls nails below πŸ™‚
