Superhero Manicures: Comic Strips at Your Finger Tips [Fashion]
By Bethany Fong
With the popularity and abundance of online cosmetics tutorials and beauty blogs, many have found an outlet of self-expression through the art of cosmetology. From learning how to contour and accentuate facial features with standard cosmetics to complete transformations through the use of FX makeup, cosmetologists are extremely attentive to detail and form, not unlike studio artists.
One particular realm of cosmetology that’s always fascinated me is the art of nail design. I’m in constant awe of how these artists are able to achieve such detail on each fingernail with only miniscule brushes and tools. The results are tiny masterpieces — literally at your fingertips. To my delight, it was only a matter of time that comic book enthusiasts started dabbling in nail art and painting their favorite four-color heroes and villains in the forms of DIY manicures. Hit the jump to check out these awesome comic-inspired manicures, including work inspired by Scott Pilgrim, Harley Quinn, Supergirl, Archie, Wonder Woman, Batman and more.
