May The Fourth Be With You

Star Wars Yoda Nail Art

Paint nails I must.  Today is a Intergalactic Star Wars Day, so Star Wars nails were required.  I've done a Darth Vader nail design before, so this time I went with Yoda.  I think my subconscious was eagerly awaiting this day, because my last few designs have been space related.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Sally Hansen Triple Shine - Slick Black
  • Ulta - Limelight
  • Miss Kiss - Chrome Crazy
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Nail art brush
  • Nail striping tape
  • Makeup sponge

You can do anything on the non-Yoda nails.  I was torn between leaving them plain or doing different embellishments on each one.  I decided to do some silver stripes for a clean, but space-y feel.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a black glitter base color.

  2. Paint Yoda on the middle finger with a nail art brush.  Use green polish to paint his head first, then go back with black for the facial details.

  3. Use 2-3 pieces of nail striping tape to create diagonal lines, then use a wet makeup sponge to dab silver polish over the tape in a gradient, then remove the tape.

May the force be with you!
