May the Fourth Be With You...(womp womp womp)

Okay so as I have mentioned before, I'm a big Star Wars fan. So today being May 4th/Star Wars Day, I did another SW inspired mani. I mean come ooonn...who doesn't love Star Wars?!? (Please, don't answer, haha!)

I was originally going to just do R2D2 on my middle finger, but once I was too plain. I think I might have gone a bit crazy with it in the end. I hate when that happens!! :(

Here are the colors I used: SH Celeb City, WnW Black Creme, WnW Blue Wants to be a Millionaire, OPI Fiercely Fiona, and Cover Girl Disco Dazzle.

I went for light sabers for this. I taped off the lines to make the actual beams of the light sabers. I then dotted where the handles would go.

This was Jango Fett from Attack of the Clones.

Middle: R2D2. I freehanded the lines and just cleaned them up with a thin brush. There were way too many lines to try and tape this off. This was the first time I actually did this, and it worked really good. I considered doing a tutorial on how I did it, but since I wasn't sure if it would even work (and not smear the silver), I decided against it. I will do a tutorial one day (put that on my to-do list).

I left my ring finger alone because this was at the point where I realized my mani was wayyy too busy. Otherwise I was going to try and recreate the Death Star on this nail. My pinky was supposed to be the "stars". I'm still mehh about this one.

I found this online, how cute is he?!?

Overall I like the mani, I seriously can't get enough of the silver/blue combo. I feel like a superhero when I wear it, lol.

Anywho....happy Star Wars Day! It's my not-so-secret guilty please and I don't care who knows it!! Haha :)
