Heyy everyone! It’s now time for some nail art. I had no idea what to put on my nails after my hounds-tooth mani. I'm a bit uninspired when it comes to nail art at the moment, but soon there shall be lots of Christmas nail art!
Anyway, after about two hours of nothing I decided on Star Wars nails, which then led to wondering about what characters to put on my nails. I went with the rebel alliance symbol, Boba Fett, R2D2, Darth Vader and a storm trooper. The photos were taken with flash as it was dark and raining all day today... Stupid welsh weather. Anyway onto the nail art!!
The rebel alliance symbol took ages to look recognizable, I ended up doing it in grey, and then doing the red onto rather than outline with the grey. Also Darth Vader and the storm trooper look odd, but it was the best I could get them to look.
I'm going to do the run through of what I used nail by nail rather than just a huge list, I did a base coat of China Glaze Calcium Gel Fortifier as always.
Thumb: Smoke and Ashes (black), Hook and Line (grey) and Adventure red-y (red) all China Glaze.
Index: China Glaze Agro (green), adventure-red-y, Models Own nail art pen (black).
Middle: Beauty UK White, China Glaze Adventure red-y, Hook and Line, Barry M Cobalt Blue, Black.
Ring: Barry M black, Chine Glaze Hook and Line.
Pinky: Beauty UK White, Barry M black.
I used a small striping brush for all the details, and topped everything off with a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward to even out any bumps and make it look nice and shiny. Hope you all enjoy these nails as much as I do.
