Cartoon nails part 2

Here is my second version of cartoon nails for the challenge.

This time I went for the classic DC Comic look with 'POW', 'ZAP', 'BAM' and 'ZOOM' :D These were crazy fun to do. They didn't come out as well as I had pictured in my head but I think they're still a pass.

`I started with a base of Pure Ice 'Celestial' . The design was made using WnW 'Black Cream', SH 'White On', Galaxy markers in red and blue to write the words and finished with a thick coat of Seche Vite.

I did my right hand first using homemade nail art decals because I thought I wouldn't be able to pull it off free handing it. Unfortunately, I had a terrible time trying to get them to lay down straight. I'm not sure if I got the base coat too thick or they were just too big for the curve of my nails but I couldn't hide the edges even with two coats of SV on top. I think my left hand (that I free handed) came out better because even though the lettering was better on my right, at least it didn't have the edges showing and it wasn't as tough to do as I thought it would be after all.


  1. I love these! They are so fun! My boyfriend often times says that I have too much polish, but this manicure alone justifies 3 different colors. He'd like it so much he wouldn't be able to argue =)

    1. All those guys say we have too much polish! What do guys know anyway :P I agree, it TOTALLLY justifies 3 colors! If he likes it and it gets you 3 more bottles than he's a keeper :D
