The Avengers: Age of Ultron

It's that time of year again! Here are my Avengers: Age of Ultron inspired nails! Let's start with my left hand. 

On my pointer I painted Visions face, on my ring finger is what Captain America's outfit looks like in the movie. On my ring finger is Ultron, and on my pinky is Thor's hammer. For my thumb I painted Iron Man's Hulkbuster suit, which makes its movie debut.
Pointer: His face is a red/orange mix. The yellow is Xtreme Wear Sunny Side. The green is Revlon Posh.
Middle: The blue is China Glaze First Mate, and the red is Nopi Challenge Red-Y.
Ring: The silver is Essie No Place Like Chrome, and his eyes are China Glaze Cranberry Splash.
Pinky: The base is China Glaze Merry Berry, the hammer is Essie No Place Like Chrome and the handle is China Glaze Mahogany Magic.
Thumb: The red is China Glaze Cranberry Splash, the gold is China Glaze Champagne Bubbles, and his eyes are China Glaze Sea Spray.

Alright, here is my right hand. I'm not left-handed by any means, so I'm not exactly proud of these, but it doesn't really matter because it's all just for fun! On my pinky is Black Widow, on my ring finger is a bow for Hawkeye, also a little bit of other paint got on that nail later so it looks a bit messier. My middle finger is Quicksilver, my pointer is Scarlet Witch's outfit, and on my thumb is the Hulk's chest.
Pinky: Milani Red Label
Ring: Xtreme Wear Wing It.
Middle: China Glaze Boho Blues.
Pointer: Xtreme Wear Social Butterfly and Milani Red Label.
Thumb: China Glaze Starboard, Zoya Shawn, and Zoya Mira.

China Glaze Let The Beat Drop

Here's a quick post featuring the glitter China Glaze Let The Beat Drop. Similar to Point Me To The Party, I had to apply this using a sponge because the glitter pieces are a little sparse. The colors are amazing though! I did a sort of fan brush stripe design in the center of my nail using Color Club I Always Get My Man-Darin, Color Club Raspberry Rush, Xtreme Wear Vibrant Violet and Xtreme Wear Red Rebel. The colors are much more neon in person, unfortunately my camera wasn't very fond of them.

China Glaze Point Me To The Party

 Here's a manicure a did while playing around with the new glitter China Glaze Point Me To The Party. The neons that I used are Color Club I Always Get My Man-Darin, The Lime Starts Here, Wicked Sweet, and Raspberry Rush. The glitter in Point Me To The Party is pretty sparse, so in order to help with the application I first applied the glitter to a sponge so it would suck up a lot of the excess clear polish, then I dabbed the sponge onto my nails to get a nice full coating. Other than application issues, this glitter is pretty awesome.

Quatrefoil Skittlette

 Hello! Today I have a simple quatrefoil skittlette manicure. For the quatrefoil I used Xtreme Wear Cuteapillar and China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint. On my ring finger I used Xtreme Wear Golden-I and then put one coat of China Glaze Blonde Bombshell on top of that. My pinky is just China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint again. This was such a quick design, I was able to fully finish my manicure in about a half an hour.

Hello! It's been a pretty long time since I've done any superhero nail art. I had been considering painting Daredevil nails for a long time now and the new Netflix series reignited my interest. On my pointer is a suit and tie because by day Matt Murdock is a lawyer. On my middle finger is the Daredevil logo. For my ring finger I painted Daredevil in his mask, and on my pinky is his billy club when its taken apart. On my thumb is a version of the suit that Kingpin typically wears.
Pointer: Revlon Iconic and China Glaze Merry Berry.
Middle: China Glaze Merry Berry.
Ring: LA Splash Nudist and Xtreme Wear Cherry Red.
Pinky: Xtreme Wear Wet Cement and Milani Red Label.
Thumb: Xtreme Wear Purple Craze and Xtreme Wear Lemon Zest.

PNMC: Negative Space

 Hello! The prompt for the 52 Week Challenge this week is negative space. I haven't really been participating in the challenge lately, but I wanted to try out some negative space nails. I'm actually not a huge fan of negative space nail art, so I wanted to try a design that didn't show a ton of nail. I used Xtreme Wear Wing It, Tickled Pink, Big Teal, and Blue Babe. I also added a coat of Essie Matte About You to give it a matte finish.

Fan Brush Stripes + Studs

Here is yet another design featuring nail studs! I've been really in to nail studs lately, so I feel like I've been using them a lot. For this manicure I did the fan brush stripe technique using Xtreme Wear Wing It, China Glaze All Aboard, and Xtreme Wear Wet Cement. It took me multiple attempts to find a base design that I liked with these studs, it was quite frustrating, but I'm glad I landed on this one!

I forgot to post these yesterday, whoops! Well, here's what I did for my nails for Easter. It's nothing spectacular or particularly original, but I still think they're pretty cute. I used Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet, Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink, Essie Mint Candy Apple, and Color Club Macaroon Swoon.
