The Avengers Assembled

It's little less than a year ago that The Avengers Assemble movie came out, but as you might have heard most of our super heroes are returning with solo movies (Iron Man 3; April 2013, Thor 2; October 2013, Captain America 2; April 2014) . We are both huge fans and have for a long time been planning on doing The Avenger nails, now is finally the time.

As you can see we opted for slightly different designs, Gema's longer nails allowed her to paint whole faces whereas Charlotte went for her good old favourite of splitting the design between the two hands.

Charlotte's nails:

I have used the digits for the characters, well aware of having to drop one (Black Widow in this case, since I couldn't find a good enough design and it annoys me a bit that her sole purpose in the movie appears to be sexy). The thumb was left to carry the Avengers' A on a pale blue background.

For all the black details you can see I used Sharpies, also for the red stripes on Captain America's body. Any white details were done with a toothpick and so we were also the red on Iron man's head. The silver detail's on Thor's armour were done using a home made dotter (ie a pin stuck in a rubber) and the As on the thumbs with a silver striper from Primark.

Gema's Nails:

I tried to fit in as many characters from The Avengers movie as possible! For the thumbs I did black A's on a glitter background as a slightly different Avengers logo.

On my right hand index finger I did Captain America. I used the Peacock Green holographic polish by Kiko for the colour of his blue suit. I then added his A logo on his forehead and face detail with a combination of toothpick and sharpie fun.

On my right middle finger is Iron Man. The gold foil by Barry M polish is the background. Then completed his armour by adding red polish and some red craft glitter to give it a more metallic look. Face details I used a Sharpie.

On my ring finger is Thor. Voodoo by L.A. Colours is the green background (which I also use for Loki on the other hand). I also used silver foil by Barry M polish for his helmet and neon yellow for this golden hair.

I decided to go with the Avengers movie version of Nick Fury on my little finger (pinkie) using silver foil Barry M polish for the background and drew in the detail using a Sharpie.

Nick Fury | Thor | Iron Man | Captain America
On my left hand index finger I used the comics representation of Hawkeye which is a mainly purple suit with a H logo on his forehead above a face mask. I used a Sharpie to outline the details and then filled in the H and mask with purple craft glitter.

On the middle finger is the hulk. I used a neon green for his face and added the rest of the detail with a toothpick.

On my ring finger is the mischievous god Loki. I used the same Voodoo green background as Thor and then Barry M gold foil to colour in his striking head gear. I added a big of gold glitter on top of that to aid the strikingness...

Little finger is Black Widow. She was a tough character to do since her logo is the common marking of the black widow spider in the comics however this is usually a small feature around her waist. I wanted to continue with the faces theme instead of just doing her logo or a black widow spider and based it mainly on the movie representation of her.  

Hawkeye | Hulk | Loki | Black Widow
Am looking forward to The Avengers 2 in May 2015 with the hinted villain at the end of The Avengers Assembled, Thanos as he would be an interesting character to attempt in nail art.

Assembling all our Avengers together ^_^
