I then took the Essence The Gel black nail polish in Black is Back and a small, thin nail brush. I drew around the jagged purple polish on the middle finger to try and look a bit like the jagged bubbles in comics. I also drew a basic design in black on the next fingers along, to look a bit like Hulk’s six pack!
For a bit of a different look and texture, I took OPI’s Black Shatter and put it over the green glitter polish on each thumbnail. If you don’t remember ‘shatter’ nail polish, you apply it over another varnish and it breaks up into a shattered pattern on the nail… the easiest possible nail art!
Finally I added a second coat of Bright Side to the ring fingers and whilst it was still tacky, I dipped the two nails into loose purple glitter.
The last step was to seal everything in with two coats of top coat – I used Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat.
If I’d been able to go shopping, I probably would have got a more suitable green polish, but I don’t think I did too badly with what I had! I am in no way an expert at nail art and have super shaky hands, but I enjoy playing around with it and had fun doing this Hulk nail look.
What do you think of these nails? Do you ever do any nail art or themed nails? Let me know in the comments.
Stay tuned for the next superhero in the series – Captain America has been requested!
