X-Men: Days of Future Past

 Last night I went to see X-Men: Days of Future Past, and this is what I painted on my nails for the movie! Since this movie has a ton of stuff going on in it, I actually decided to paint all ten of my nails, which is something that I haven't done since The Avengers.

Left Hand-
       On my pointer is the belt portion of Wolverine's costume. My middle finger has Magneto wearing his iconic helmet. On my ring finger I painted a more traditional looking Sentinel. My pinky is the lightning bolt from Quicksilver's costume, and on my thumb is the X-men symbol.
Pointer: Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, Blinding Blue, and Cherry Red.
Middle: His skin is LA Splash Nudist. The purple is Zoya Mira and the red is XW Cherry Red.
Ring: The face is Essie Miss Fancy Pants, the purple is XW Vibrant Violet, The eyes are China Glaze Harvest Moon.
Pinky: For the base I mixed China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le and XW Blinding Blue together.
Thumb: The base is XW Wet Cement, and the red is XW Cherry Red.

 Right Hand-
         Here's my right hand. Let me remind you that I am not left-handed, so painting this hand proved to be quite challenging, and therefore my designs aren't very clean. It's also very difficult to take a picture left-handed! On my pinky I painted elements of Havok's costume. My ring finger is Bishops outfit, complete with his red scarf. My middle finger is Colossus's costume, and on my pointer is Storm's white attire. For my thumb I painted the Trask Industries logo.
Pinky: I just used black and white acrylic paint.
Ring: The blue is China Glaze First Mate, the red is XW Cherry Red, and the yellow is XW Mellow Yellow.
Middle: The silver is Essie No Place Like Chrome, the yellow is Zoya Darcy, and the red is Nicole By OPI Challenge Red-y.
Pointer: Orly Lemonade is the yellow, and the red is XW Cherry Red.
Thumb: For the base I mixed Zoya Mira with a bit of China Glaze Man Hunt.
