Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Story Genres: Superhero Comic Nails

by - Wednesday, August 16, 2017

I'm already a day behind, arrrrghh!! You guys remember how I thought this week would be so easy? Not true - I've hit a roadblock already, only two days in. :( I gotta push through it though, I'm sure it will pass...

Today's mani is my second look for DD's week of 'Story Genres' and this time I went with some comic book / superhero nails. That's a genre, right? It is for me, shhh! Haha.

And before you say it, yes I know the Captain America shield is the wrong colours - I wanted more the general vibe of superheroes rather than a direct copy of the shield imaging. And I really like how it turned out!

I used a small combo of polishes to put this look together:

  • Nicole by OPI Hit The Lights 
  • Konad Red Stamping Polish 
  • Ceramic Glaze Pure 
  • Mundo de Unas White 
  • Ceramic Glaze Little Black Dress
  • L'Oreal Paris Jet Set to Paris 

I wanted to go with a primary colour look for this one, to inspire the idea of traditional brightly coloured comic books. :) For the stamping I used plate Cheeky CH47, XY-Z01, and BP-27.

One thing I really gotta say I learned? Stamping dots is so much easier than trying to get them lined up and sized properly with a dotting tool! That's definitely a trick I'll be using more in the future.

Make sure to check out all the other awesome looks from the DD ladies below before you go, and then let me know what you think!
