The Nail Files - Iron Man

Last week I mentioned heading to Comic-Con on Sunday with Mr S. In honor of that, I went on a search to find the perfect nail design. I settled on an Avengers theme with this as my inspiration:
(You can find it on my Pinterest page, too)

And then I remembered the day after Comic-Con I had a job interview scheduled. I really didn't want to put all that work into nails that would come off the next day. So I didn't do them.

However, in honor of Mr S's birthday today, I did my nails in an Iron Man theme. Iron Man is the favorite superhero of Mr S. And, if I can find what I need, will be the decoration theme for when he comes home from work tonight!  :)

So, without further adieu:
 Left hand (which always looks better)

Right hand

*Please excuse the mess on my right hand...I haven't cleaned my edges yet, as you can see!

One coat of Julep Myrtle (red). Once dried, I diagnoally taped all but the ring finger and added Sally Hansen's Wedding Glitters (gold). The accent finger I used my white and black nail art paints then added a thin tip in the gold. I used the dotting tool and made a large white circle. And then the black rings, which were a pain in the bootay!

But, over all, I love this!

And, as always, linking up to show off my hard work! 

Happy Friday, y'all!!
