TLR – Man nails

This month, we did back-to-back TLR’s with the holiday next week. Last week as you already know was ‘Cream’ color. Β This prompt is ‘man nails’, done by or inspired by.

I tried very hard to get Don to do my nails… yea that didn’t work.. lol. Β I had him instead come up with nail colors and inspiration.

Don’s original choice was he wanted ‘hooker red’ so he chose Nubar’s Lustful Red. Okay color down, then he looked through all of my stamps and came up with the splatters from my MoYou stamp. He wanted me to use black so I did Illamasqua’s Boosh. He said the colors and the stamp reminded him of when the Venom Symbiote took over Spider-man

 

Here are the inspired by my man nails..

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.
