Archives For fingernail art

It never ceases to amaze me just what works of art can be accomplished on the tiny canvas that is a person’s fingernails.  Whether it is the exploding TARDIS fingernail art I posted in the past or the Legend of Zelda nail art I have also posted, I am always blown away by the amount of detail that some people put into painting their nails.  Well, speaking of amazing fingernail art, I just stumbled upon some great Spider-Man fingernail art that I’m sure you guys will enjoy just as much as I did!

This awesome Spider-Man manicure was created by Starfish on the Beach.  While all of the nails are impressive, I think I like the one on the middle finger the best with the Spider-Man logo showing from underneath a jacket or something that is being unzipped.  Trying to get that tiny detail on that zipper couldn’t have been easy!

Its been quite a while since I have posted some cool fingernail art so when I was browsing reddit and came across this amazing Star Trek: The Next Generation fingernail art, I knew I had to post about it!  I’ve always preferred the Deep Space Nine uniforms but I think these actually look better as fingernail art than DS9 uniforms would.  However, I’d still like to see some DS9 fingernail art if anybody out there is up to the challenge.  But, until somebody does that, lets talk about this awesome TNG fingernail art!

This amazing Star Trek: The Next Generation uniform nail art was done by reddit user feelslikeawoman.  While I think she did a heck of a job with this nail art, I think I am most impressed by the fact that those are real nails rather than fake ones.  I think she must have hit the genetic fingernail lottery!  I can’t say that long nails are my thing but I can certainly appreciate how rare it is for somebody to be able to have natural nails that can get that long.

We are just two days away from the big day!  No, I’m not talking about a when that fat guy in a red suit (who should really be a lot fatter than he is with all of those cookies he eats) to flies around leaving presents in exchange for Christmas cookies, I am talking about the Doctor Who Christmas special!  In just two days we will find out how the whole regeneration problem is solved, see the end of Matt Smith’s Doctor and the beginning of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor.

Well, to celebrate this upcoming event, I thought there is no better way than with some amazing exploding TARDIS fingernail art!

I’m not positive who did this incredible fingernail as it just crossed my Facebook feed with no credit to the creator (a major pet peeve of mine), but from the watermark, I would guess it was created by Adventures in Acetone.  Whoever created it did one heck of an amazing job!  I’ve posted some really cool Doctor Who fingernail art in the past but I think this blows it away!

Being a big Van Gogh fan, I loved the whole exploding TARDIS Van Gogh painting thing so I am especially in love with this fingernail art.  If I could have nails like this, I would even paint mine even though I am a guy!

Legend of Zelda Nail Art

Even though I am not the kind of guy that is interested in painting their own nails for whatever reason, I still enjoy seeing really cool nail art.  Last week I posted some pretty cool Duck Hunt fingernail art (that you can learn how to paint yourself) that people seem to have really enjoyed so I thought I would follow that up with some equally awesome Legend of Zelda fingernail art.

These cool Wind Waker inspired Legend of Zelda nails were created by Silly Nails.  Princess Zelda and Link are obviously included (what Legend of Zelda nails wouldn’t be complete without them?) but there is also the Hylian Crest and even Link’s top and belt!

I think the Legend of Zelda universe would be a great subject for much more fingernail art because there are so many different characters, enemies, and games that the amount of material you have to work with is almost endless!  So, if you decide to do some cool Zelda nail art, let us know in the comments below and make sure to share pictures!

This makes me wish I could go home from work right now and play some Legend of Zelda.

There are some guys that like to paint their fingernails but I’m not one of them.  From guys like that who I have talked to, most do it because it gets the attention of women and it makes for a decent ice breaker but I guess I’m just not that desperate.  If I can’t get a girl without painting up my fingernails, she is not worth getting!

However, if I ever decided to paint my nails, I can’t think of anything better than to make them look like the classic video game, Duck Hunt.

Makeup and nail artist Katie Satow has a show on the Geek & Sundry YouTube channel which airs every other Thursday and in the episode below, she shows how to make these incredible Duck Hunt nails.  Any woman that decides to follow this how-to video and sport some awesome Duck Hunt fingernail art is pretty much guaranteed to have my heart.

If you try your hand at this cool Duck Hunt fingernail art, let us know in the comments below and share pictures of the results!

It seems like it has been a while since I have posted any cool fingernail art so when I saw this Worms fingernail art (one of my all time favorite games), I knew I needed to post it.  For as fun as the Worms games are, I feel like they don’t seem to get the recognition they deserve which is why I like to post anything Worms related when I get the chance.

This fantastic Worms fingernail art was created by Nail It Hot.  I’d say they did a pretty spectacular job with this fingernail art although I don’t recall ever seeing an axe in any of the Worms games.  I  never played the 3D versions so I suppose its possible, but if it was me, I would have gone with something slightly more iconic to the Worms games like the super sheep or the holy hand grenade.   It still looks cool though!

It has been a little while since I have posted any cool fingernail art so when I saw this, I figured you guys would enjoy it, especially if you love the Legend of Zelda games.  Nothing says “I enjoy saving the princess quite like some Legend of Zelda Hylian Crest fingernail art.  Even as a guy, I still kind of want to sport this Zelda fingernail art myself!

Masha over at Lost in Lacquer has posted a cool DIY guide showing how she made this awesome Legend of Zelda fingernail art and how you can make your own! It seems like a pretty straightforward process so I wouldn’t think it would be too hard to replicate, especially if you have experience doing stuff like this before.

If you do decide to give this a shot on your own fingernails, let us know in the comments below how they turned out!

With the new Hobbit movie having come out a few days ago, it seemed especially appropriate to post some rather spectacular Hobbit themed fingernail art.  Without a doubt, these fingernails are definitely some of the most unique and awesome fingernails I have ever seen!

DeviantART user KayleighOC is the fingernail art genius behind this incredible 3D Hobbit Hole fingernail art as well as the Gandalf fingernail art.  Apparently they were made out of clay and then painted with acrylic paints and nail varnishes.  I’d say they turned out rather incredible but I can’t see how 3D fingernail art would be the least bit practical.  If it was me, I would be worried about the stuff breaking off if I had to scratch my nose or something.

Good news everyone!  I have stumbled upon some amazing Futurama fingernail art you are sure to love!  If you love Futurama as much as I do (I think it is the best cartoon ever), this Futurama fingernail art is sure to bring a huge smile to your face.

Reddit user DerpLasagnaBeers shared this picture of their phenomenal Futurama fingernail art on Reddit earlier this year but it wasn’t until a few days ago that I saw it.  Most of your favorite Futurama characters are here including Fry, Bender, Leela, Zoidberg, Nibbler, Professor Farnsworth, Hypnotoad, Kif, Captain Brannigan and even Morbo!  I am blown away by how well this nail art turned out!

If you like this and want to see more amazing Futurama fingernail art, check out the Futurama fingernail art I posted on my Global Geek News blog a couple of weeks ago.
