Challenge: Iron Man 3 Nails
My tweetup friend Jason Gardner suggested I should create Iron Man 3 nails to tie in with the film release…challenge accepted!
I started with my usual base of Nail Envy, then sandwiched some Sally Hansen Hard As Wraps between Nails Inc The Boltons for a slightly metallic red base.
I wanted to recreate an Iron Man mask and chest plate, then some lines and angles reminiscent of the joints on Tony’s suit. I used MAC Immortal which is a gold metallic polish for most of the detail, with a bit of striping tape to help create clear outlines.
A touch of white polish – Chanel Attraction – was topped with a few flakie pieces from Models Own Snowflakes to give a glowy effect to the eyes and electromagnet on the chest plate. Then a few lines in Rimmel Black Out and in Attraction were added to pick out a few details, followed by some Seche Vite to finish.
