My favourite super heroes are Superman and Wonder Woman. I created my own 3d comic strip scene featuring them along with Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor. It is hard to condense this into just ten steps to show you how I created it, but none the less here it is.

Step-by-Step Nail Art Tutorial

1
I began by sketching out my Superman and Wonder Woman logos and then colored them using acrylic paints. Then added comic style words to the edges including Zap, Pow, Boom and Bang.

Using clear acrylic, I built up a crystal rock formation and added some green acrylic together with some glitter and green iridescent mylar to embed bits of kryptonite. I also added a little glow in the dark pigment so that the kryptonite actually glows in the dark. Some brown acrylic was added in patches also.

I wanted to add shards of kryptonite coming out of the ground so using the same mix of glitters, green and clear acrylic and glow in the dark pigment, I formed several pieces. Then using my e-file, I shaped them to get a sharp crystal edged finish and applied them to my design with clear and green acrylic. I then finished this section with top coat gel polish and cured.

For my Wonder Woman, I used some light weight modelling clay to form the base of her body and covered her with acrylic. Once dry I used my e-file to give her a more detailed appearance.

To glam up Wonder Woman, I gave her a red glitter corset and matching boots. I applied clear base gel polish and sprinkled/dipped her in glitter and cured. Her briefs were hand painted with blue acrylic paint and white glitter stars were added. For the gold detailing on her corset and her crown, I mixed clear gel polish and gold glitter. Her hair was created with black and brown acrylic and scratched using a needle pen to give a wavy finish.

Finally, I used the same method to create my captions. A base of clear gel polish was applied to the backing paper of a nail form and cured, I then painted the wording using acrylic paint. Once dry, I flipped it over and used a fork (yes, a fork) and some grey acrylic paint to apply some dots. When this was dry, I applied a layer of white gel polish over the dots. Then removed the tacky residue, cut out the caption box and applied some top coat gel to give it a glossy finish. The story goes...\nLex:

These nails don't do themselves!"
