Before me and my boyfriend went off to the Cinema I wanted to make sure my nails looked the part, so I created this mani. These Deadpool nails were really easy to create; all that was needed is a red base colour, a black polish for the half moon nails and his mask along with some paper reinforcement stickers to create the curve for the half moon and a dotting tool.
For my red base I used this beautiful polish by Christina Marie called Sebastian, I received this polish in my recent polish swap with Becca from A certain Becca Nails. I have never actually used this brand of nail polish before, it is a lovely red creme with some gold shimmer, unfortunately the shimmer doesn't show up on the nail as much as I would like. This polish takes 3 coats to be opaque and is quite sheer, it builds up well and just needs that final third coat to even things out. I do have some more polishes from this indie brand so I will do a full review once I get to swatch them.
Once Sebastian was top coated and fully dry I used my paper reinforcements to create the half moon shape on my nail and painted the black over top. I pulled the reinforcement off of the nail before the polish had time to fully dry so I would get crisp lines. Then for his face I used my large dotting tool to create two oval shapes and then a smaller dotting tool to create the cats eye shape with some white polish.
I am quite pleased with how this turned out, its simple yet effective. I hope you have enjoyed this short post, as always have a fabulous nail day and I will chat to you all again soon.
