You know, I knew timing was EVERYTHING when it came to posting these nails, but by the time I had finished them at 12am last night, it was far too late to blog about them hence the premature sharing of what has been delightfully termed "Seasonal Stormtroopers" on the Faulhaber Instagram. All around the world, people are lining up for the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and while I have done Star Wars-themed nails before (here), the Christmas season calls for a little something extra. I also have a bit of a sense of humor and while this manicure may not be "pretty", it sure makes me laugh a little. Stormtroopers need love too and as I have said before, you can turn ANYTHING into a holiday mani as illustrated below!
For my base, I took out my trusty Essence - Wild White Ways* and painted two opaque coats. Though I have used a black striper in the past, I opted for black acrylic paint to draw the Stormtrooper faces followed by Essence - Fame Fatale* for the Santa hats. I dotted on the fluffy white trim and outlined with black acrylic paint for extra definition.
How many of you are Star Wars fans and waiting in line to see this movie?
