Nail Art Tutorial: Pow! Bam! Boom!

Happy Friday and it's Nail Art Tutorial Day!  

How's everyone?  I'm sure we're all in high spirits because weekend is within our reach!  As for me, it'll be a very busy day of errands plus, I get to meet my past colleagues for catch up tonight!  

As for my nails, I've done The Avengers and DC characters and while I was looking at my nail polish collection, I've thought of creating another colorful nail art to brighten up the rainy season but I want to veer away from the usual Superheroes' Chibi faces!  

Yeah, I think a lot!  *laughs*

Anyways, back to the story, I've decided to re-create how Superheroes would react on a fight scene!  Yes, I know some of you weren't even born yet! :P

Here's the famous Crash! Kapow! Zlonk! from Batman and Robin circa 19-forgotten! :P

Step 1:
To start off, I've picked bright shades as base.  I've used random polishes from Revlon, Essie and Color Combo.

Don't forget to apply your choice of polish base to protect your nails and apply 2 coats of the shades you pick and let dry.

Step 2:
Using L.A. Art Deco in White or use any thin art brush, draw a "leaf-like" shape as shown on photo below! 

Step 3:
With L.A. Art Deco in Black, outline the drawn shape to highlight the "speech bubble".

Step 4:
Wait for a moment, make sure everything is dry before you start writing out the "words" with a black 2 Way Nail Art Pen.

Since my nails are small, I can't seem to write "ZOING!" or "Zlonk!".  So I've settled for shorter words!

Step 5:
This step is optional, but I've applied a tiny bit of glitter on the area outside the worlds.  

Step 6:
Once the nail art design is completely dry, apply your choice of top coat using wrapping method to prevent nails from chipping!

I hope you enjoy my oldies but goodies comic strips on nails!

For added information ---
explosions: BUM! BAM!
punches: PAK! PAF! PAM!
breaking of bones: CRAK!

Obviously, those are useless information!  *hahahha* Oh well, I hope my colorful nails brightened up your day! 

What's the funniest comic-related sound for you?

My vote is: "PLOK!" :P

Keep smilin'

Stay happy!
Happy weekend!
