I got an awesome pack of Batgirl socks for Christmas, it had 3 pairs but this pair (yes I know there is only one sock in the picture) is my favourite pair and I had a picture in my head of the design interpreted onto my nails and it was too adorkable to ignore.
So BEHOLD! My Batgirl nails, or pink Batman nails whichever you prefer. I used the Bathead design from my original Batman nails as I really like how it looks and then I worked on the utility belt design from the socks.
Everything was free handed including the Bat Symbol which turned out way way better than I had imagined.
I feel like the imperfections in my lines and sizing really pulls the whole mani together and gives it kind of an old school, rough draft, comic book sketch feel.
I used Barry M Matte Rhosilli for the pink and I think this polish is just made for this nail art. Look at how it gives the look of a leatherette material, perfect for a superhero costume! The yellow is Barry M BLE2013 Yellow (the one with the tribal lid) and Barry M Black was used for the lines, Bathead and Bat Symbol and the bottom of the nails. I guess you could say it is a Barry M Batgirl.
I did these nails yesterday and I love them so much that I have am planning to wear it on both hands for as long as it holds out, which might not be long because I already had to fix a chip on one nails :'(
My nails are also getting quite long and I might go back to nubbins for a while again, I have quite decided yet but I have another nerdy mani planned or when I do.
Would you wear this? What superhero mani would you like to see?
