At least I haven't been too into mainstream American comics like Batman or Iron Man. I used to read some graphic novels and manga books when I was in middle and high school. One of my favorites is Gundam Wing.
Gundam Wing was also made into an anime cartoon series, which became very popular. I think it helped make all Gundam series more popular in America! But Gundam Wing is still one of my favorite anime shows. It has interesting characters, kickass Gundams, and a pretty intense story.
There are five main Gundams that I chose to portray (from left to right) Shenlong, Sandrock, Wing Gundam, Deathscythe, and Heavyarms. I decided to keep them in that order on my nails as well. Deathscythe is my favorite of the bunch, followed by Wing Gundam and Sandrock. Since I'm not a huge fan of Heavyarms or Shenlong, they got the tiny pinkie and the difficult-to-photograph thumb!
To paint the Gundams, I freehanded the designs like usual. I started off by painting each nail with China Glaze White on White. I then started to construct each Gundam's face with yellow, silver, red, green, and black nail art polishes. It was just a lot of tedious trial and error until I got them to look how I wanted.
They're far from perfect, but I like how they turned out! Once again, I got some smears when I applied the topcoat, but I can live with it. Don't forget to check out the other bloggers who are participating in this challenge!Dipped in Lacquer
