NOTD, Faux-nad MLS301 Look #6 of the Contest/Giveaway!

Loreal “Deeply Red”, Sally Hansen “Golden-I”, OPI “Into The Night” on tips, and China Glaze “White on White” To stamp the stars from the MLS301 Nail Plate.

Aside from the USA’s colors, can you tell the inspiration for this one?

The Avengers! I recently saw the Avengers and I LOVED IT. I didn’t love the beginning and the cynic in me was throwing a party pointing out all the things I didn’t like..until about half-way through when I was entirely won over.

There were so many amazing scenes that would have redeemed just about anything for me. I remarked to Mr. NB that they could have featured Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in a 45 minute musical scene and I wouldn’t even have held it against them, all because of one specific scene involving the Hulk. They gave his character such justice this time!! Which is long overdue. I know I’m not the only one who has hated every hulk movie they’ve made in the past 15 years.

BUT back to the mani, which is clearly very Captain America. To be honest I’ve never been super fond of his character, nor Superman. Ive always been much more drawn to the darker, tortured personalities such as Batman. I didn’t even care for the most recent Captain America movie but I was surprised to find myself LOVING him in this one. I can’t say enough how much this movie surpassed my expectations.

So… Go Captain America, Go!

**These are obviously WW colors. However at the end of the day, I preferred the gold detailing over silver. That’s kind of what inspiration is- having an idea and then running with it wherever it may lead**

This is look #6/12 in the Plate/Stamper Giveaway Contest!

All you have to do is comment for a chance to win! Rules and details can be seen here:


  • Susan says:

    Love the mani and I’m anxious to see the movie too. I’ve heard nothing but good about it so far, which is uncommon.

    • Christina says:

      You absolutely have to! I thought I heard the movie made some $200++ million in it’s opening weekend alone. Which is pretty unheard of.

  • Gretchen says:

    This looks so Wonder Woman to me. It totally takes me back to saving my stuffed animals with my sis while jumping from twin bed to twin bed in our bedroom with our shirts tucked into our panties. (Right, Angie?!?!?!) Awesome awesome memory – thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    • Christina says:

      Haha, yes it IT totally Wonder Woman! I was wondering if I was going to get slammed for using gold rather than silver but…. artistic interpretation?

      Mr. NB will kill me for saying this but.. he used to pretend he was WW when he was a kid. He would ask his mom for bracelets. And other WW accessories. We laugh about it pretty often.

      Shh ;)

    • Jessica says:

      My initial reaction was this: “Ooooooh! Wonder Woman!” Not surprising that you saw the same thing. Hmph!

  • Angie says:

    very nostalgic, sis! I love this look!

  • Jennifer says:

    Love love love those nails! By the way, did you get the card?

    • Christina says:

      Thanks, Jennifer!! I really liked how this one came out (even despite accidentally filling my nails down a bit stubbier than intended).

      Card? You mean the most awesome, bombastic piece of mail I have received so far this year?! No, I don’t know what you’re talking about.

      Writing you email now ;)

      (seriously, I may have even teared up a bit)

  • Louise says:

    Aw I loved the Avengers too! Captain America is adorable :D This mani is so pretty :)

    • Christina says:

      Woo-hoo! It was great wasn’t it?! I can’t wait until the next one, maybe the next 50 considering how well this one sold. :)

  • Tara says:

    Love this one. Did you stamp on the gold lines or paint them on manually? I’m seriously impressed at how many designs you’re getting out of one plate, I have both BM sets and have yet to use them because of zero creativity (that and I suck at stamping).

    • Christina says:

      I paint them on! Very slowly, and very carefully. I’ve been dieing to try the metallic nail strips/tape that’s out there, not sure if you’ve seen them… Hopefully I’ll be able to add some on some on my next amazon haul and create some looks with those!

  • Jessica says:

    This look is a winner!

  • Sarah says:

    The Avengers movie was amazing! I didn’t think that I would like it, but I loved it. Fantastic nail art!
