Fandom Nails: Captain Marvel

Fandom Nails (2)I’ll be honest, this week’s fandom nails is a bit more low-key than, say, the Dragon Shouts or the S.H.I.E.L.D logo. This week, I thought I’d do a subtle tribute to Captain Marvel. Initially, my goal was to recreate the star emblem on her outfit. However, it turns out that my inability to draw stars on paper totally translated into a complete and utter failure when it comes to drawing teeny, tiny stars on my nails. So I nixed that idea and instead went with a more subtle idea, just incorporating the chevrons. Here is what I used:

OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay

Sinful Colors #839, Sugar Sugar

Sally Hansen Insta-Dry #10 Lightening

Salon Perfect, Black Diamond

Nicole by OPI High Shine Top Coat

I did a base coat of the blue polish, and then I painted the red on the top in a bit of a downward facing arrow shape. From there, I added the yellow where the red and blue polishes met, and I used the black to add lines. Here is how it turned out:
