Cars Nail Art

As I mentioned my last post, I went to a Frozen Cars themed birthday party.  Since I always paint each hand differently, one hand was Frozen, and the other was Cars.  Today I present my Cars nails featuring Lightening McQueen!  Ka-Chow!

Nail Polish

Polish Used:
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Rapid Red
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Lightening
  • Wet n Wild - French White Crème
  • Julep - Sydney
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Black to Black
  • Princessa - Blue
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-412 (dots)
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM17 (checkered tip)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Nail art brush
  • Rhinestones - red, yellow, green, and two blacks

Although it is the simplest, I think my favorite nail is the stoplight nail.  To create this look:
  1. Apply the base colors – index in yellow, pinky in white, and the rest in red.

  2. Index – The yellow with the orange dots is representative of some of the detailing on Lightening’s body.
    • Stamp the dots with orange polish.
    • Use reverse stamping to create a black and white checkered flag, and apply it to the tip.

  3. Middle - Lightening McQueen Nail 
    • Using a nail art brush, section off the white area of Lightening’s eyes.
    • Use lack polish to outline the eyes, and the eyebrow line above. 
    • Use a dotting tool to paint his eyes.  First dot a large dot of blue, then a smaller dot of black for the pupil.

  4. Ring - Stoplight Nail   
    • Use nail tape to section off a strip down the center of the nail.     
    • Paint the section with white polish and remove the tape.    
    • Apply three large rhinestones in a vertical line – red, yellow, and green like a stop light.
