Crash! Zap! Pow! Comic Book Fight Nails
I’ve seen similar designs on Pinterest in the past and I’ve finally got all the tools and colours to create my own comic book design. It’s a bit like the fightscenes in the original Batman TV series…
This has quite a few different layers, so I did it over two nights – base colours and dots first, then the details second. I started off with a selection of bright colours on a base of OPI Nail Envy:
Thumb: Nails Inc Portobello
Index: Nails Inc Baker Street
Middle: Chanel Mimosa
Ring: Essie Watermelon
Little: Barry M Spring Green
Dots were quick, using Illamasqua Scorch and a dotting tool – sealed with a coat of Seche Vite.
Next up I outlined the white starbursts using a striping brush and Illamasqua Scorch. Then once dry I outlined the starbursts with Rimmel Black Out using the striping brush again. Finally, I used the Rimmel and a fine 3/0 paintbrush to add the lettering.
I wouldn’t normally add photos of my right hand as it’s never quite as good, but I think I’m becoming slightly more ambidextrous… my lettering isn’t half bad!
