I was wracking my brain for thoughts of what to do for the “supernatural” theme. Unicorn? Pegasus? Dragons! And then it came to me…superheros! So I started browsing the internet, and came upon the truly fantastic mani by The Nailasaurus and just went with it! I happened to cut my nails fairly short right before doing this, so getting inspiration from the queen of short nail art was perfect!
I am actually impressed with myself. Interestingly enough, the hardest nail was the Captain America one…drawing stars on nails is freaking difficult!! Second hardest was the SHIELD logo (no surprises there). Black Widow and Thor were downright easy 😀
In case you are unfamiliar with the Avengers movies (which please go watch them, they are actually really awesome. Except Thor 2, which was rather pathetic), I will go through each nail/character! From pinky to thumb we have the Black Widow (the only female in the Avengers and a total badass), Captain America, SHIELD (aka one-eyed Samuel L Jackson), Iron Man, and Thor.

I don’t even like the gold I used here, it is super yellow-toned, but it totally worked as an Iron Man faceplate! Win. I am thinking of making a whole separate page for nerdy nail art…then again, I am also thinking of completely changing the look of the blog. We’ll see if either idea goes anywhere! Hope you enjoyed 🙂
…I also somehow forgot that today was my 3-year-blogging-anniversary. Wow. I guess I’ll be having a giveaway after the 31 Day Challenge ends!
