May the Fourth be with You - Star Wars Nail Art

Nothing to Disclose

Happy May the 4th, everyone! For those Star Wars buffs out there, today has a special place in our hearts as "May the Fourth" sounds very similar to "May the Force..." so naturally we must all paint our nails with Star Wars characters and rewatch every movie made ;)

I did a May the Fourth mani last year and had so much fun with it, that I figured I'd give it a go again this year.

Unfortunately, I'm not as big a fan of what I created this year as what I did last year. I think I was a bit overzealous with my characters and failed to actually recreate them on my nails. So, instead of Star Wars, it looks like I painted random cartoon characters on my nails...but since I spend so long on these, I figured I'd share anyway! I suppose this is a reminder that not all nail looks are a success?

I used acrylic paint for all the characters, though I did have a base of Zoya's Storm, Purity and Josie. I went with a Rebel Fighter Pilot on my index, a (creepy, sorry!) ewok on my middle, R2-D2 on my ring and C-3PO on my pinky.

Did you do any nail art for today? I always enjoy doing theme days like this that only come around once a year (even if I fail at the nail art)! I also know of some people doing a link up for today so I figured I'd add mine anyway ;) Be sure to check out their May the Fourth nails!

Happy Polishing! :)
