May the fourth mani

Do or do not, there is no try. Thankfully I did. Here is my Star Wars nail art for the Nail Art May challenge.

I started by browsing the internet for inspiration. I have to admit I’ve never been a fan of Star Wars, and it’s been a good few years since I’ve seen any of the films. My freehand nail art isn’t fabulous – especially as I couldn’t find a lot of my nail art pens, brushes, etc. (we started packing already for our big move in the next few weeks. Exciting!) so I started with a few quick sketches to get my creative juices flowing a little.

Anyway, I settled on some very basic designs that everyone could recognise; Leia, the death star, R2D2 and a light saber.

I used a white base for simplicity and drew on my designs using a pink pen from the Ciate Chalkboard kit. Star Wars nails have been seen year on year so I thought I’d make mine a little different (more feminine?) by using brighter, non-traditional colours.

So here it is – my tribute to the fourth of May.

So what do you think? Did you attempt this theme of the challenge? Are you a Star Wars fan?
