I can’t believe I haven’t posted the Superman nails I did for Elijah’s birthday on the blog! I did post pictures of them on Instagram and Facebook, but didn’t even include them in Elijah’s birthday post! Tsk tsk. What is wrong with me?
Luckily I was on leave when I did these nails. It literally took me half the day to get them done. I struggled a bit trying to freehand the Superman logo. I had ordered decals from luckystarstyle, but I left it too late and had to try the Superman thing on my own. Ordinary Misfit found a Superman nails tutorial for me on Pinterest.
I started with my regular base coat of Tip Top Miraculous Results. I painted two coats of Rimmel Sweet ‘n’ Spicy on all my nails except my ring which I painted with two coats of Sinful Colors Aqua. I taped off the triangle as explained in the tutorial and painted a coat of Sinful Colors Snow Me White and then immediately a coat of essence wanna be your sunshine and removed the tape. I used a short striping brush to and Sweet ‘n’ Spicy to paint the red border around the yellow and a dotting tool to make the S. I was going to keep the other nails plain red, but Misfit had a stroke of genius and suggested I do the tips blue. I was quite pleased with how they turned out, although they are far from perfect.
What do you think?
