Superheroes Challenge: Marvel Hero… Wasp!

So we’ve seen the Villain and today, Marvel’s hero is riding, or should I say flying, in to save the day! I know that Venom is Spider-Man’s arch enemy but I’ve done Spider-Man nail art in the past so I thought I’d try something new today. I’ve actually done most of the popular Marvel heroes before (Marvel even has it’s own tag!) so I had to reach a bit further than the Hollywood blockbusters for today’s nail art.
I chose to do Wasp, aka Janet Van Dyne. Some of you might recognise her from one of the Avengers cartoon series. I know that’s where I first saw her and when I was coming up with ideas for today’s nail art, I had an idea for her immediately! The wings came out better than I expected since I had the idea to make them pearly right at the last second and it definitely makes them more convincing as wasp wings!

I used NYC Lexington Yellow and Cult Nails Cruisin Nude as my base colours. All the black detail is done with a small nail art brush and black acrylic paint. Finally, I used Rimmel Daisy Chain to go over the wings and give them that delicate, pearly effect.
I finished it all of with two coats of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Shoot over to these blogs to see what the other ladies came up with today!
