Throwback: Avengers Nail Art

The first Avengers 5k and Half Marathon is going on at Disneyland this weekend so here's a throwback to my Avengers nail art! 


This was one of my earlier nail art attempts and it's fun to look back at it!  It remains one of my favorites that I've done and I really enjoyed having it on my nails!

Good luck to all the runners this weekend and have fun!

For more info about how to do this nail art, check out my post about it here:

Toy Story Alien Nail Art


I did this nail art a while back but never got around to sharing them!  It was in March and around St. Patrick's Day.  I decided to wear green by painting some aliens from Toy Story on my nails!  I also added "the claw" on my thumb.


I ended up getting lots of pictures of this mani while at Disneyland. I found quite a few cute Toy Story aliens while I was there.

Chevron Nails Inspired by Bracelet

One of my sisters made me a bracelet.  I love it!  When I was wearing it I realized that I had colors in my Kiss Nail Artist Kits that matched perfectly so I painted a design inspired by the bracelet.


First I did a clear base coat and then after it dried I added chevron lines in the yellow, green, and pink colors that I had.  The polishes in the kit have long thin brushes that make it easier to paint lines. Once it was dry, I added a clear top coat.
 

I hadn't done a design over a clear polish besides French tips so I wasn't sure how it'd come out but I ended up really liking it!  I love how it looked from far and a few people commented on them and even noticed the matching bracelet!  I was happy with these.  A very special thanks to my sister for the bracelet and providing the inspiration!  :)
