Comic Book Nails for FCBD


Today was Free Comic Book Day, both one of my favourite days of the year and one of the most annoying. Favourite because COMICS! FOR FREE! what's not to like there? Annoying because, there aren't any comic book stores close to me, well, not any that are easily accessible to me. Owning my own little Comic book store is one of my dreams but until someone buys me a store and fills it with merchandise or I suddenly become rich, I'm stuck dreaming. So for now, I try my best to take part in the digital world.And of course, that meant I had to do my nails.

I really wish I had spent more time on this mani, I have had this doodled on a piece of paper for months now and I finally decided to do it. I love it, and some of the imperfections are what makes it good, but I think it looks really rushed and I could probably do a better job on the dots. Oh and excuse the cuticles, they have gone really dry and icky for some reason.


Anyhoo, my thumb is a Superman dedicated thumb, the top section is supposed to be his hair, so kudos if you guessed that.

The index finger is Green Lantern and in case you wondered, the bottom right section, the word is BAM with some callout spikes on each side.

The middle finger is a massive POW! callout. All the better to swear with, not that I would, ever. ;)

Ring finger is Batman and Robin. I was quite impressed that I managed to get the Robin symbol to look like the Robin symbol, although Bat symbol, not so much, close enough though I think, right?

And finally, the pinkie is The Flash. The word is ZAP, I wanted ZOOM, but by the time I got to the words on the pinkie and index, I had cramp and just stamped them, and those were the best two words on the stamping plates I have.

Polishes used: Barry M White, Barry M Spring Green, Barry M Cyan Blue, Barry M Lychee, Barry M Black, Barry M BLE 2013, Ciate Red Hot Chilli.
Then I did a top coat of Seche Vite and finished it all off with a coat of OPI Matte Top Coat.

Hope you liked them. Did you manage to get your FCBD comics, were there any FCBD events at your comic book store?

  1. If it is a popular character like Superman, Batman, This Fantastic Four or Spiderman, it will be worth more money because there are more collectors of these popular story arcs.
