It’s day 18 of the Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge and today’s theme is Sci-Fi. This gave me the perfect opportunity to do a nail design that’s been milling around in the back of my mind for some time – Green Lantern nails. I do like Green Lantern, but I’m not really a huge fan… unlike my boyfriend! Green Lantern is one of his favourite figures because the fact that the Green Lantern uses his will to fight is very true to life – each one of us has to use our will to get any of the things we have in life. I do think it’s a very cool concept which is why I decided to represent it on my nails today.
I started off with a coat of Essence Colour & Go Upper Green Side on all of my nails, then once it was dry I did a water marble using Upper Green Side along with Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Hey, You! and Essence Colour & Go Walk on the Wild Side and We Rock the Green. I thought the combination of all of the greens was reminiscent of the Green Lantern’s power flowing as he uses his will. I tried to create a ‘starburst’ water marble, which was most successful on my thumb and middle fingers. I did watch a tutorial on how to get this pattern, but I’m not sure which one, there are quite a few on Youtube!
For my ring finger, I left Walk on the Wild Side out of the marble and instead used it to paint the Green Lantern symbol. I really enjoyed this combination of greens and I was quite chuffed with my water marble. I hope you like it too! “Remember… No Fear” Only 10 more days left for the challenge… I hope I can make it. I will use my will to do it 😉
