Digit-al Dozen Does Geek: Star Wars R2-D2 French Mani

 press sample 
It's Day three of Digit-al Dozen Geek Week. I love these challenges. I always grumble as the week draws near because it really does take some effort to produce five themed manis in a row...but I really do get inspired by the awesomeness of the other gals in the group. It pushes me to think. So in that vein, today I have a stylized Star Wars R2-D2 French Mani.

Star Wars R2-D2 French Manicure

There were two inspirations for this mani. The first was seeing four Zoya polishes serendipitously lined up in a row on my polishing table (which is really just a plain old table but I call it my "polishing table" because it sounds fancy): Purity, Trixie, Tallulah and Raven. These colors reminded me of a Star Wars candy heart box I bought for my hubby for Valentine's Day. It was silver with geometric R2-D2-esque embellishments.

The "french" part just sort of evolved. Again, I used my trusty striping tape to lay out the design. I'm not gonna lie...I did have a moment (or two) of STRIPING TAPE RAGE. You know...when the end of the tape magically dissolves into the roll - only to be found by scraping your nail around the entire thing no less than 40 times!! I persevered. I used two sizes of dotting tools to make the circles.

This is the first time I've used Zoya Trixie and I love it! It is extreme silver. Sally Hansen Celeb City used to be my go-to silver metal polish, but the Zoya formula and wear are much better! And I love the Talullah blue against the silvery Trixie.

Check out the other geekiness and please stay tuned for another blatantly predictable geeky nail art design from me tomorrow. :D
