Wonder Woman!! Oh yeahh. Well, I did some Batman nails and so I figured I'd put some girl power out there too! I started with just the logo then decided to add her hot pants because it didn't feel like enough. I wish I had a yellow nail pen or something, then it wouldn't seem so streaky but oh well, this was the best I could do with my resources!

Here's a close up of the thumb so you can see the details;

What I used: Orly in Fairy Godmother for the base. Ultra3 in Honolulu for the logo, Sirray in 48 (blue) and 109 (gold) and white acrylic paint for the stars.

So, what do you think?

It's been a little while but I've been busy! School is coming to an end and I've had David over to visit so finding the time to post has been difficult. I have however been taking photos of my manis so I have a back log to share.

The next one I'm sharing started off as a Tim Burton styled black and white stripes, we know he loves them! Then a day or so later I added the bows just to give it a little something extra.

What I used: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Platinum and Hawley Manicure Nail Art Pen/Brush in black. For the bows I used a white acrylic paint as a base. Then used Orly in Fairy Godmother and L.A. Colors Nail Deco in another red (can't remember the name!) for the outline. Topped with Out The Door!

One last thing, I've had a few disasters with my nails recently, they've kept breaking constantly and one even split down the middle, very painfully. Yesterday I put some acrylics on to keep them strong for now and make sure my nail grows back correctly. Anyways, in a few posts time you'll see a drastic change in my nails so this is why, and also a warning! lol

Some friends and I helped out at a Hair show on the weekend and because I was too chicken to enter the nail art section I just painted one of the girls nails so I could say I at least "tried"
I was kicking myself when we got there, they winners received trophies! I could have had a chance at a trophy for nail art! Oh well, next year.

Anyways, Catherine has long lovely nails so I had a lot to work with which just made it ten times more exciting to have a go at something, I went for more detailed Cherry Blossoms this time around!

Forgive me, my camera was dying!

Here's a (kinda) better shot.

I really enjoyed myself with this design! However I can't recall all the products I used, I know the base is Curiouser by SportsGirl with some different whites and glitter sponged over it >.> and the white of the flowers is acrylic paint. I went in open to whatever products worked so I can't remember them all! If there is something you're dying to know just ask and I'll do my best to figure out what it was that I used!

I have some designs stocked up from the past however long so I'll share them as the days go on. I just finished some Wonder Woman nails which I'm stoked on so I can't wait for you all to see them.

Until next time, take care :)

First, sorry for the crappy webcam picture but it's the easiest way to show the design all together! I've been wanting to do a Batman design for Lord knows how long but have been too chicken to attempt the bat signal. But then it came to me, just like the Star Wars design, a "knuckle tattoo" I only had to do the logo twice haha. I think it's cool, a bit too simple than what I usually get up to but I'll fix that over the weekend!

What I used for this baby; SportsGirl in Curiouser and Blue Lagoon mixed for the base and Hawely Manicure's Nail Art Pen and Brush in Black for the details.

So whatcha think? D'ya have any ideas for some other designs for me? :)
