40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Cartoons and Comics

Painted Fingertips | Pop art cartoon comic nail art

Hi everyone!

I’m sure some of the other ladies taking part in today’s prompt have come up with amazing nails! I can’t wait to go and take a look – their links are at the bottom of this post if you can’t either!

The nails I am sharing with you today are actually what I wore for Halloween. It was my first Halloween in the US and I wanted to dress up but didn’t have anything to make a costume from. I did have my basic makeup collection though, so I decided to go as a Pop Art Cartoon girl, and with nails to match! I’ve also included a picture of my makeup from the night, so stay with me 🙂Painted Fingertips | Pop art cartoon comic nail artThese certainly fit in with my theme so they were good enough, but I was a little disappointed that the BANG and POW! didn’t come out brighter. I ended up using nail wraps and silly me, I forgot to check which brand they were from (I should still have the pack – I’ll have to go check!). I had a field trip on this day and got home pretty tired and still needed to get ready so the wraps seemed like a better option. They were certainly faster than doing the dots myself. They weren’t too bad to apply, but as you can see, I did have a little wrinkling. I think like most things, a little practice will make that better. I only had a chance to take these photos 2 days later and you can see how the wraps already show quite a bit of tip wear. I’d hoped they would last longer since longevity is one of the draws of wraps for me. Oh well – at least they did what they needed to for Halloween.

I used a black and blue stamping polish and Color Club Ruby Slippers and Tip Top Gold Digger.

They’re also perfect for your generic ‘comic’ nail art – no specific comic but just the idea of the Roy Lichtenstein-style comic book art. If you’ve stayed with me till now… here’s how I looked on the night! This picture was taken after I already got home so I’m not looking perfect, but you can get the idea!
