Then I remembered comic book nails! I think they look like they could also be cartoon nails. They are outlined to look like they're drawn and colored in, and even have a fake glare or shiny spot painted on them. I think it's pretty cute!
Well I decided to try it out myself. I thought red would be a great color for it since it's so bright, and black and white also go well with it. I think it's funny how the glare I painted on is on the side that's usually shadowed in my photos, but at least it's the side of my nails you can see more detail on!
I used Cult Nails Evil Queen and Cherimoya nail art polishes in black and white. I started by painting two coats of Evil Queen on. I then carefully took the black striping polish and painted an outline around each nail. My lines are far from perfect, but I think I got close enough! I then painted lines with the white striping polish to look like a glare.
Cleanup was a bit more difficult than usual. I ended up getting some black on my cuticles and around the nail in general. The black didn't really stain, but it's very pigmented, so when I went to clean up with some acetone, it got into the nooks and crannies of my fingers.
I think they look good for another first attempt though! I'm glad I got to try them out. They really do look like they're from a comic book, and also remind me of Roy Lichtenstein's paintings.
