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 🙂
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 Husbands favorite:
And what I call my ‘bull in a China shop’ husband (he’ll kill me for telling you all this LOL)
I 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 🙂
Next 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.
Lastly 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? 😉 Make sure you check out the other girls nails below 🙂
