Superhero Nails // Marvel – Deadpool // Red and Black!

Hi guys!  Like most people, I recently went to see the film Deadpool.  I was curious to see how it would be, as I really didn’t enjoy Green Lantern, which Ryan Reynolds also stars in.  Luckily, Deadpool was a million times better – really funny and definitely not one for the kids!  A few days later, I needed to do my nails and a little thought began to form… and that is how these Deadpool nails came to be!  As I had a lot of fun doing them, I decided to start a little superhero nails mini-series.  Let me know who you’d like me to do next (I’m thinking more Avengers than X-Men).

How I did my Deadpool nails!

I laid down a base of Nails Inc Kensington Base Coat, followed by two coats of Nails Inc Tate red nail polish.  I couldn’t get away with just one coat of red, as it was a little streaky and not opaque enough.  Once that was touch-dry, I added black lines across the top third of three nails on each hand, using a small nail brush.  On the middle finger and thumb, I added two little oval shapes, to try and replicate the look of Deadpool’s mask!  The black polish I used was Essence The Gel in Black is Back.

I again waited for this to touch dry, then used a nail dotter tool to dot two white ‘eyes’ on each mask nail.  I just used a mini white nail polish from a set for this.  Once again, you’ve guessed it, I waited for this to dry (spoiler alert: these nails probably aren’t great for those in a rush – luckily for me I was stuck in bed with nothing else to do!)  Finally, I added one coat of Revlon Diamond Top Coat – I find this a pretty good top coat to stop my nails from chipping too quickly.  I have to say though, the red (Tate) was pretty bad for chipping – it needed touching up on day 2 and removing on day 4.

What do you think of my Deadpool nails?  Let me know in the comments.  I’m certainly no nail artist and I have quite shaky hands, but it’s fun to do something a little different for once.  Let me know which superhero inspiration you want to see next!
