Manicure Mondays – Wolverine!

After a long hiatus– and because I managed to break every single nail repeatedly for several weeks Ina row– Manicure Mondays are back at TFP!

This week, we do a little mutant magic and have a set of nails inspired by probably the best known of the X-Men, Wolverine!


Modeled after his classic blue and yellow costume, of course.

Start out with a nice bright yellow, painting every nail the same colour.


Now, for the designs, you really have got quite a few options here. And all that you’ll need is a blue nail polish pen.

For the first nail, a simple set of three thin lines at an angle to represent his trademarked adamantium claws.


For the second, a set of three triangular marks like those on his costume over the obliques.


Fill them in…


For the third, a double-walled yellow knockout of a triangle surrounded by a flood of blue, like it looks coming up and over his collarbones.


For the fourth, the pinkie, an easy set of simple, tapered lines, like the ones that run down the front of his torso.


And, last, the thumb, with artwork inspired by his mask.


Of course, you don’t have to stick to these five designs by any means. Throw in an “X” symbol in a circle. Reverse some of the colours. Use the brown and burnt orange palette or black and yellow or black and grey to reflect some of his other costumes. Just have fun with it!


Let us know if you try any of our Monday Manicures for yourselves! We love comments and unique takes on our stuff!

And, of course, suggestions for future Manicure Mondays are always welcomed.

Until next week!
