May The Fourth Be With You

So tomorrow, as you may already know, is Star Wars day!  Since it's May the 4th, and you can say "May the fourth be with you!"

I am appropriately spending tomorrow manning a booth at comic con (you can see my admittance wrist band in the picture :)) and so I thought Star Wars nails would be perfect. 


On my index finger, I have a storm trooper, my middle finger is C3PO (who is not easy to translate into nail polish by the way, lots of tone on tone), my ring finger is R2D2 (my personal fave!) and my pinkie is a light saber.  On my thumb I did Darth Vader, who was also not easy to translate into nail polish for the same reasons as C3PO.


I did these after 5 hours of face painting and tattoos (and am writing this post after 12 (!) so please forgive any typos or rambling...) and so decided to just do galaxy nails on my right hand instead of more Star Wars characters.   If I hadn't been so tired, I probably would have done Boba Fett, another light saber (red of course), maybe Darth Maul?  Maybe a light side and a dark side hand for next year :)

Anyway, here's the galaxies!


They're not the best galaxies I've ever done, but all in all I'm pretty happy with them!  

I'm way too tired to go and look for all the polishes I used (or to remember them) so if you have any questions feel free to ask and I'll answer you in the comments. :)

So, are you doing anything special for Star Wars day? A special mani maybe?

    1. Thanks! I'm always trying to think of simpler designs that go with my left hand to do on my right. I know it's not the best way to work at my ambidexterity, but I'll get there some day ;)
      I love your blog by the way! You do amazing work!
