Nerdtastic Tuesday: C3P0

Today is the final installment of Nerdtastic Tuesday! As I mentioned a few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went as R2D2 and C3P0 for halloween! He likes to pretend he interprets my awkward nerd-speak in to normal person English (which honestly, he kind of does). So he had to be the “human cyborg relations” part of the costume! I made my nails to match.


These nails were surprisingly easy, given that I could find very few templates on the internet! When I try something new I usually search for it first to give me ideas. It looks like people don’t tend to put very accurate C3P0 on their nails!


So, I based it off images from the movie. It isn’t perfect, but I’m happy with how they came out!


Again, I did my thumb slightly differently…I didn’t want a super-fat C3P0 (it seemed wrong somehow) so I did his centerpiece instead!



  • Gold: Maybelline – Bold Gold
  • Copper: Pure Ice – Magic
  • Yellow: Revlon – Electric
  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


  1. Paint nails gold
  2. Add horizontal line and eye ridges/nose in brown
  3. Add yellow dots for eyes
  4. Add black dot for pupil and small black rectangle for mouth
